Were these classic shows ever on TV in the same year?

Could you watch Gunsmoke one day and M*A*S*H another?

When it comes to classic TV, looking back can be confusing. Some shows were in both color and black-and-white, some spawned huge franchises but only lasted a few seasons, and some went through different phases because they were on for decades!

Can you remember which popular shows aired at the same time? Here are 12 classic series from the 1950s to the 1980s. Try to guess which ones broadcast new episodes in the same year and which ones were never on simultaneously. 

  1. Did 'The Twilight Zone' and 'The Dick Van Dyke Show' ever air new episodes in the same year?
  2. Did 'The Andy Griffith Show' and 'The Brady Bunch' ever air new episodes in the same year?
  3. Did 'Star Trek' and 'Lost in Space' ever air new episodes in the same year?
  4. Did 'The Flintstones' and 'Scooby Doo, Where Are You!' ever air new episodes in the same year?
  5. Did 'Gilligan’s Island' and 'Green Acres' ever air new episodes in the same year?
  6. Did 'Mama’s Family' and 'Matlock' ever air new episodes in the same year?
  7. Did 'Perry Mason' and 'Mannix' ever air new episodes in the same year?
  8. Did 'The Carol Burnett Show' and 'Laverne & Shirley' ever air new episodes in the same year?
  9. Did 'I Love Lucy' and 'The Rifleman' ever air new episodes in the same year?
  10. Did 'Leave it to Beaver' and 'Gomer Pyle, U.S.M.C.' ever air new episodes in the same year?
  11. Did 'Gunsmoke' and 'M*A*S*H' ever air new episodes in the same year?
  12. Did 'Bonanza' and 'Happy Days' ever air new episodes in the same year?

10/12. I missed #4 Flintstones and Scooby Doo, and #6 Mama's Family and Matlock. I watched Matlock, none on the other 3 shows, so 2 pure wrong guesses.

12 out of 12. Remember, each question used the criteria of 'new episode'.

The Andy Griffith Show ended in 1968, when it became Mayberry RFD. The Brady Bunch premiered in 1969. Don't you people have Google?
