TODAY hits 16 years as America's favorite morning show

Dec. 15, 2011 at 2:36 PM ET

We started winning on Dec. 11, 1995. And we haven't looked back since, thanks to all of our loyal viewers.  

TODAY has been rated America's number one morning news program every single week for the past 16 years. It's the longest-running current winning streak in all of broadcast TV. 

How well do you remember 1995? (We know it's been a long time!) That was the year when a terrorist bomb went off in Oklahoma City and O.J. Simpson was acquitted. The top-grossing film was "Die Hard with a Vengeance," and Coolio's "Gangsta's Paradise" was ripping up the radio waves. Tell us in the comments your most vivid memory from the year.  

The milestone comes just weeks before TODAY celebrates its 60th anniversary early in the new year. We've compiled a trove of historical information on our TODAY at 60 page
