Best teen TV show of 1998: 'Dawson's Creek' or 'That '70s Show'?

"Dawson's Creek" and "That '70s Show" are two very different teen series. Yet, the two series share something in common: They both premiered in 1998, and The WB drama and FOX sitcom have iconic theme songs. "That '70s Show" was a goofy romp from the jump, becoming a long-running hit and found a second wind in syndication. "Dawson's Creek" was a smash for The WB, and went down in history as part of the late '90s teen pop-culture renaissance. Which series was the best teen show of 1998?

Below is the synopsis of "Dawson's Creek," per Rotten Tomatoes.

A popular and cool teen soap about attractive, very self-aware young people in a Boston suburb (though it was filmed in North Carolina). Full of the clever pop-culture references that are a trademark of creator Kevin Williamson ('Scream'), who based it in part on his own experiences.

"Dawson's Creek" holds an audience score of 80 percent on Rotten Tomatoes. Viewers tuned in weekly to watch the trials and tribulations of Dawson, Pacey, Joey and Jen. The show was part of a late '90s teen pop-culture renaissance, often tackling teen relationships and issues. Speaking of relationships, check out Ms. Mojo's list on the top 10 Pacey and Joey moments here.

Below is the synopsis of "That '70s Show," per Rotten Tomatoes

A sitcom about a group of teenagers nearing on maturity in the 1970s. They deal with sex, drugs, and rock and roll, as well as disco, leisure suits and, of course, parents.

"That '70s Show" holds an audience score of 70 percent on Rotten Tomatoes, and that makes sense because the Fox sitcom was filled with '70s nostalgia and running gags throughout its eight-year run. Check out Ms. Mojo's list on the top 10 running gags here.
