Can you name all these TV shows with 'Z' in the title?

Look at the pictures, fill in the blanks… and try not to catch some Z's!

'Z' is not the most common letter in the alphabet. There's a reason why it is worth 10 points in Scrabble

In fact, from the Fifties through the Nineties, not many television shows have featured a 'Z' in the title. This is most of 'em.

Think you can remember the full names? We have the pictures to help. See if you can fill in the blanks!

10/12.

I missed 10 and 11.

I never heard of numbers 9, 10, or 11.

Number 9 must be based on the Gene Wilder & Richard Pryor film. I'll have to hunt that one down. The film was hilarious.

Wow, Valerie Perrine looks as good in the photo for number 10 as she did in Superman (1978).

Should have left out the dashes - made guessing too easy.
Else I would NOT have gotten 10 of 12
Several I never heard of!

12/12; I knew all but the last one. I took a wild guess on #12 and got it right but never heard of that show.

How'd they manage to miss "The Famous Teddy Z", starring Jon Cryer (after "Pretty in Pink" but years before "Two and a Half Men") as young Hollywood agent Ted Zakalokis, with Alex Rocco as his mentor?

Hmm. Don't recall that at all - how many seasons did it last?
I liked Cryer's movie where he hides out in a high school from mobsters or whomever
Thanks for the info

Never heard of Leo & Liz in Beverly Hills. Must have been quite a hit!

The only one I got wrong. :-(

I'd never heard of it either, but Liz is an actual nickname while the others aren't so much.
