Ted Danson also appeared on TAXI just before Cheers hit the air in '82. The TAXI episode "The Unkindest Cut" aired February 25, 1982. The first episode of CHEERS aired September 30, 1982. A full 8 months after the TAXI episode aired.

Elizabeth Montgomery also was in Twilight Zone before she was famous. "Two," with Charles Bronson as the only other character, aired in 1961, three years before Bewitched.

That was a good quiz. You could generally work out the answer by the process of elimination.

MeTV, you could invert the contest for a different quiz. By asking what was the next show the Star was in after their series was cancelled!

Bet CarryNaples knows!

10/10. Actually saw most of the episodes that were named. Total guess on the last one. Alan Alda appeared several times on the Carol Burnett Show. Not sure if these were before MASH first started.
Believe it was after MASH was on.
