Quizzes of this type, are useless.
The most popular opinions are ALWAYS a match for what is airing on MeTV at the time of the quiz.

Why wasn't Jim Rockford included in the "BEST TV DETECTIVE of the Seventies"?

Hard to see how "Charlie's Angels" could be the iconic team when the cast changed continually through its five-year run. The first season cast would definitely be iconic.

MASH???!!!?! Seriously - come on - one if not the worst shows ever! Talk about 30 minutes of liberal, anti-military/American, left leaning dribble!

Yeah really.Those shows that last 11 years and have the largest viewing audience of all time for last episode.Their the worst.
I found the show smug and boring. Alda is annoying. My boyfriend hates it too.
Wow. You and your boyfriend hate it. Guess that settles the matter for the millions of people who made it one of the most watched shows in television history.

Beretta was THE definitive detective show of the 70's. And that's the name of that tune.
If you are going to consider Baretta the best cop show, spell it right. B-A-R-E-T-T-A. You spelled it the way the gun with same name, is spelled. "Keep your eye on the sparrow," then next time maybe, you won't spell it wrong.

Nope. Jim Rockford. He was so good MeTV purposely left him off the list.

I thought the quiz was interesting because it confirms MeTV's lineup. Wonder if they were sampling ideas for new shows instead?

38% similar. It was a difficult choice between Carol Burnett and SNL, but the very early SNL was great, so I went with that. Also, I don't consider Little House a "western."
Pacificsun ETristanBooth 16 months ago
Perhaps Carol Burnett is considered a traditional variety/comedy sketch show. While SNL is comedy/satire, and a musical guest star. Would you say a "Western" only qualifies if it's featuring gun fights? (Just curious).
I was torn on that because SNL was must-see TV when it launched in the seventies. But I chose Carol Burnett because I don't really think of SNL as a traditional comedy/variety show. Thought it was odd to include it in the category.

I suppose that when I hear the TV genre "western," I think of horses, saloons, and guns. The few Little House episodes that do include saloons and men with guns are among my least favorite episodes.

70 percent similar. I had a few outliers where I was in the 10 percent or less range, but mostly I was in that majority range.

61% similar.How do you pick a best show that has MASH,All In The Family and Happy Days on it?I ultimately went with AITF because of the three it was the only one that started and ended in the 70's.Best family sitcom I probably should have picked HD,but again went with AITF because.Well it has the word FAMILY in it.😋Not surprised Carol Burrnett got most votes for variety show,but we all know SNL was the best.Heck it probably should have been one of the choices on the list for best show.Speaking of thd best show choices.There were some that didn't belong on the list but "Angie"?,"Angie"😌Finally Columbo is a no brainer because it's the best detective series of all time.

SNL!?! Oh, I get it. You're answering the question which show mentioned in the quiz, is the only one still in production? You are right, it is SNL. Now, if someone would just answer the questions which game show show I'm talking about and what its connection w/SNL? Thank you.
WHEEL OF FORTUNE.
