Can you figure out what show Darren McGavin is in?

Are you looking at Kolchak, or any one of the several characters played by Darren McGavin?


From Westerns, to sitcoms and anthology, there weren't too many television genres Darren McGavin didn't appear in. 

He had an active career for well over fifty years. He might be best known for his recurring film and television role of Carl Kolchak, the investigative journalist the hunts down a story no matter how strange or how difficult it may be. 

Aside from the pair of movies and Kolchak: The Night Stalker TV series, McGavin had a busy career.

9 out of 12. Missed 1, 5 and 11. That makes me want to start talking like Lon Gorman.

When McGavin played in a western, he always carried an official Red Ryder carbine action, 200-shot, range model air rifle with a compass in the stock.

I missed 6. I was stumped on the westerns. I really like doing the quizzes.

6/12 I have never been very good at telling the difference between the Alfred Hitchcock‘s and Twilight Zones. I also didn’t do that good at guessing the b&w westerns 😕

I wish the MeTV creators had told who is the very familiar looking woman he’s sharing the photo with. I’m gonna go out on a limb and say it’s Debbie Reynolds? Please feel free to confirm or deny my guess.

8 of 12. Became a fan of his as a kid when Nightsalker movies and show were on. Had recognized him from reruns on other shows.

6/12! MeTV should really start posting more Gomer stories and quizzes soon. They should also post more Gomer videos as well. Because I haven't seen any of those this year either

Except for the Kolchak images, all guesses - and obviously not good ones.

Exact same score for me for the exact same reasons.
