13/14. Missed the Addams Family one. I thought that was real or was it just a TV movie?

You got 13 out of 14 - Impressive reasoning skills! Missed #12. I don't remember the new WKRP.

I think Andy was the only returning character on it. I also remember Tawny Kitaen being part of it.

Actually, neither Andy or Bailey ever appeared! Arthur, Les and Herb were in every "new" episode, Johnny came back in the middle of the first season, and Jennifer and Venus made guest appearances! Tawny Kitaen was indeed in it, as was French Stewart as a sorta younger Johnny clone!

Hello, the '80's are calling. Didn't anybody have an original idea??

''You got 8 out of 14'' ---------------Did you Monkee around and miss a few? You must be new here... --Hardly! I've been with you, (MeTV) for a very long time.

12/14, wasn't there a TV remake of The Addams Family?

Any show that has "new" in the title is bound to fail with the exception of "The Price Is Right" which dropped "new" the next season.
They also probably dropped it, because after the first season, it was no longer considered "new."

There WAS a "The New Andy Griffith Show!" True, it wasn't a true TV sequel and come to think of it, neither was "The New Dick Van Dyke Show," but it did exist in 1971 and it ran for ten episodes.

Yes, and it was my only wrong answer! Fun Fact: The pilot episode featured guest appearances from George Lindsey [as "Goober"], Paul Hartman [as "Emmett"], and Don Knotts [not named, but you kept waiting for Andy to call him Barney]! BTW, there were sequels for the Bradys and the Addams, but not with those titles!

PS Yes Stephanie, we all know New Monkees had no connection to the originals!

That was my only "wrong" answer too, but you are 100% correct. In fact, when I Googled it, this article came up in the search results: https://www.metv.com/stories/do-you-remember-the-new-andy-griffith-show
I remember seeing the Addams Family reboot on what was then Fox Family. It wasn't bad, but I really felt sorry for Glenn Taranto, who played Gomez. He positively faded into the background when John Astin appeared as his father. No fault of his own, really. Astin was still on his game, and who could possibly compete with him?
I think there was at least one similarity, wasn't the pad practically the same? I mentioned his before, but I'll do so again: Over on You Tube there's a rather revealing interview w/Mike 'n' Micky on an Australian tv show. They each dispelled a couple of "urban legends" {Did Charles Manson really audition for the Monkees, did the band actually sell 35 million records more than the Stones/Beatles?} about the group, and the fact that Mike, never really cared for Peter. Although he did cry while talking about him. {They not fake tears.} It was a good, fun interview.
