74/83 and 80% of those were guesses. 80's TV was NOT must see TV foir me.

Wow, not a big 80s fan but I remembered all of these titles, even if I never saw the shows.
Also brought back memories of shows I did watch and would LOVE for METV to show again.
Kate & Allie and Major Dad, for example.

I'd almost like to see a documentary of "Duet" as it was the longest running show on FOX in the beginning. They stuck with that thing till it died, as opposed to a lot of their good shows that they axed in four episodes.

Missed the Alice / Angie which was a little tricky as Angie ran for two seasons also. But it was 1979 and 1980. Fell a dime short.

81/83, and I didn't watch half of them. Especially not the execrable ALF....

76/83 - missed one with a misplaced click. Saw (and was shocked to remember) titles I haven't heard of in, oh, 30 or 40 years.

Missed a couple of shows I never heard of.
No. 19 was a bit of a trick question. The full name of Fat Albert was Fat Albert and the Cosby Kids.

That show was not on the quiz

82/83 missed the Alice/Angie question!

Number 59 can be Alice or Angie.

With the delightful Donna Pescow. It did run into 1980, and a lot of folks don't remember it. Good catch!

And that's why I clicked Angle by mistake. They really shouldn't make questions that hinge on really bad typeface design.

Angie was a late 70's show

83/83. Now METV needs to do one for the '70's. Anybody agree with me on this? Only this time, add on 17 more questions. I know there are a couple of you who got bored, and chose not to finish it, but for those that did, what's wrong with the addition of a few queries to the quiz?
Yes, but they sort of did as Happy Days, and Lavern & Shierly were 70s staples, not 80s.

81/83. Misspelled Tracey and thought Buffalo Bill was just an old west guy and not the name of the Dabney Coleman of yore. Also, all of #4's answers could have been valid. M*U*S*H was an animal-based parody of M*A*S*H produced by Filmation (currently owned by Dreamworks Classics) and M*A*S*K is a series about a team of heroes in armored vehicles taking on the terrorist threats of Miles Mayhem and his nefarious team known as Venom. Yeah, it was originally Kenner's answer to G.I. Joe, and due to corporate acquisitions, M*A*S*K IS part of the GI Joe team.

Tracey Ulman got me too

Who knows? I was too bored after 50 questions to continue!

79/83; thought this one was too long of a quiz but did very well anyways.

82 of 83, and I only missed the one because I didn't remember how to spell Tracey Ullman's name.

The terrifying thing is, I think I watched most of those shows at one point or another (though some were more 70's shows, I think).

67/83 Didn't watch tv much in the 80's, was really trying to remember some of these
