Are these the years when classic TV shows started or ended?

Do you know when your favorite shows went on (or went off) the air?

Television premieres and finales can be some of the best episodes of an entire series. Sometimes shows use these unique episodes to do something different, like the Green Acres pilot, which plays like a fake news program.

Of course, the M*A*S*H finale was watched by so many people its ratings rival Super Bowls, far surpassing mere sitcoms.

Do you remember what year all your favorite shows started and ended? Here are 20 classic shows from the 1950s to the 1980s. Try to guess if each one started or ended in the given years!
