8/12. I am not the biggest "Mama's Family" fan in the world, but I like the show well enough that I hope it rotates back into a regular slot on the MeTV schedule from time to time.

MF isn't on the MeTv schedule as of now, unless I missed something.

Should have got all 12, but ended up with 10 (the house and newspaper question ingot me- I knew The Beagle, but forgot the other).

I enjoyed the show; got loud at times, but Vicki is so good, as are theaters (especially Ken, Dorothy- she got over animated when the show was in the middle of its third season), Beverly, Rue, Betty, Carol, etc.)

This Sunday is the MF Block Party, so the trivia post makes sense after all.

Best Vicki Lawrence as Mama is The Elephant Story. She made Tim Conway laughed hysterically.
