Can you guess the classic series by the "show" in its name in the opening credits?

''Show'' us what you got!

In the early days of television, many shows quickly changed their names from more creative choices to simply sticking the star's name in front of the word "show." And though this tradition tapered off, it actually continued well into the 2000s for a select number of series. 

That's a lot of "show"s to track, and that's why today, we want to know how well you really know your "show"s.

We've isolated just the word "show" from the names of series we watched on TV from the 1950s through the 2000s. It's up to you to show us how well you paid attention. Good luck!

10/10! For the record, neither Mary Tyler Moore nor Flip Wilson had the word "show" in their opening titles. They were printed as Mary Tyler Moore and Flip! Also, in syndication The Danny Thomas Show was Make Room for Daddy and Phil Silvers was You'll Never Get Rich on CBS and sometimes errorneously Sgt. Bilko! Also, Ed Sullivan began as Toast Of The Town and while The Smothers Brothers Show was their first series, the one they are best remembered for was The Smothers Brothers Comedy Hour!

I think I heard that "Make Room for Daddy" was eventually re titled as "The Danny Thomas Show."

Make Room For Daddy was the syndicated name for The Danny Thomas Show.

10/10. METV said {for #9,} "To close here's a tough one." Usually when "tough" is used in this way, doesn't it mean in closing, this is the last one? If so, then either METV lied, {which is obvious seeing as there was a 10th question,} or they mixed up the order, and had the wrong question for #10.
Yes Stephanie clearly Garry Shandling was the tough one, Lucy is sorta obvious!
