Was this TV show a top-rated hit in 1965, 1975 or 1985?

Sorting these series into the correct decade is harder than it seems.

Television shows live and die by their Nielsen ratings. For decades, the ratings service has compiled a Top 30 list of television shows for the season. If a show failed to crack the Top 30, it would mean bad news.

Below, you'll find a list of 15 TV shows. They all ranked in the Top 30 for the 1965–66, 1975–76 or 1985–86 television seasons. Actually, most of them were Top 20 shows. So you should remember them all, right?

Try to match them all to the correct year!

13/15 I did not know some of these were so popular so soon in their run.
Kate & Allie would be a good sitcom to add to the METV lineup.

14/15, missed that last one. Never heard of "You, Again?", although it sounds familiar.

By the way. Both Valerie & You Again? Premiered in March of 1986 making the answer technically incorrect.

14/15; missed I've Got a Secret - I think it was on in the 60's and 70's but the 70's may have been a revival.

You got 8 out of 15
You are a little out of sync. Looks like you could use a little more practice. Keep trying!
I was so 'out of sync' with this quiz, I couldn't identify one object with one eyeball!

There was a joke that Life With Lucy should've been called You Again? ☺
Yep, that was a bad show and Lucy should have passed on it!
