I wouldn't say highest rated of any decade. The ratings in the early 70's were consistently in the 9's and the mid-80's were consistently in the 7's. In order to achieve those numbers, the daily/weekly had to be higher than 6.9 on a regular basis.
Yes I meant to say of any decade since my ratings research started in 1989. The pre-1989 era had tons of episodes rated higher.
