Did these classic TV shows begin or end the same year?

They were all on at the same time – but at the beginning or the end?

So many great shows were on all at the same time during the 1950s, 60s and 70s. Many debuted the same year, even the same month, while others started at different times but ended the same year.

We’ve paired up classic series that were on around the same time. Can you guess if each one started or ended the exact same year? Be careful, a few might have started AND ended the same years!

BRADY BUNCH ended in 1974, not 1975. so it shouldn't have been asked alongside ADAM-12.

Exactly. The two shows didn't even begin the same year. The Brady Bunch ran from 1969-74; Adam-12 ran from 1968-75.

Re: #9, The Brady Bunch ended in 1974, not 1975.
That's correct, five seasons, 1969-1974

You got 11 out of 12
You started and ended this quiz very well!

I missed Question #4. It was one of two questions in this quiz in which both T.V. shows in them "aired" the same year: "THE ADDAMS FAMILY" & "THE MUNSTERS"--1964--, and ended the same year--1966. The other question in which the two shows aired at the same time and ended simultaniously was #12: "RAWHIDE" and "WAGON TRAIN" both aired in 1959, and ended in 1965. Heck of a coincidence, don't you think? LOL!

Missed the Have Gun/Beaver question. Made a good guess on Rawhide/Wagon Train.

The Brady Bunch and Adam-12 question is incorrect. Adam-12 ended in 1975 whereas The Brady Bunch ceased in 1974.
Yeah, I thought that too.
