Introducing Designing Women to its lineup, over-the-air channel GetTV tonight begins a countdown of “our 30 favorite episodes” of the classic 1986-1993 CBS sitcom. Six episodes will air nightly through Friday starting at 9 pm ET.

Next Monday, Designing Women will move to its regular GetTV timeslot, with four episodes daily starting at 11 am Monday through Thursday.

Designing Women, revolving around an interior design firm in Georgia, originally starred Dixie Carter, Annie Potts, Delta Burke, and Jean Smart. In season six, the latter two were replaced by Julia Duffy and Jan Hooks, and in season seven, the final one, Judith Ivey replaced Duffy. There were 163 total episodes.

GetTV hasn’t released which episodes landed in the top 30 list, but we suspect the season four episode with the following serious scene will be included:
