Are these names of 1950s TV series or 2000s reality shows?

Fact or fiction?

The earliest TV shows had some pretty straightforward names, and so do many of the most popular reality TV shows.

Think you can separate fact or fiction when it comes to TV shows more than 50 years apart? 

See if you can tell the difference between names of Fifties series and 2000s reality TV shows. Good luck!

I only watch Survivor which even with it's silly puzzle games and other mild athletics, shows how groups click together and stab others in the back. Not much unlike my work space.

Way to prove you could basically never slip when it comes to 1950s shows! Too easy. I only had to guess on one (Circus Boy).

14 of 16. This poll reminded me of how much more I like TV shows from the 1950's than modern reality TV shows.
