Can we guess your age based on your taste in TV?

How old is your inner couch surfer?

When it's just you and the TV, there's no pressure to act your age. You can forget the world entirely, transporting to simpler times to have dinner with your favorite TV family or slingshotting through space via your favorite sci-fi vehicle.

Whatever show flickers across your screen most often, one thing is for sure: Your taste in TV says a lot about you. So whether you're stuck in the past or snickering to the latest season of Saturday Night Live, let's see if we can crack the code of your favorite shows to guess the age of your inner couch surfer.
  1. Which of these do you consider the ultimate TV show?
  2. Which Brady kid do you identify with the most?
  3. What do you call this?
  4. Who do you think is a pretty cool dude?
  5. Do you think cable is dead?
  6. Pick a show you think they should have never cancelled.
  7. Which show has your favorite TV theme song?
  8. What cartoon show did you wake up for on Saturday mornings?
  9. How do you watch TV now?
  10. Which was your favorite ensemble cast?
  11. What do you think is the funniest sitcom?
  12. Who do you think had the best talk show?
  13. Who is your favorite TV nerd?

Can we guess your age based on your taste in TV?

"You are 47."

I just turned 49, so they aren't far wrong.

I'll be 60 in a couple of months- they guessed 62. Close enough.

They guessed 47. Close: I'm 56. Unfortunately, a lot of the choices weren't ones I'd pick.

47? Missed by nearly a decade. 55.
Now, regarding the question about how I watch TV... There were multiple answers that would have been correct. I have cable, Roku (built into the TV) and I use my tablet a lot! I can access my DVR remotely so I never miss my favorite METV programs when I'm out on the road.

They're off by 7 years. Need to go higher than 47.

What you watched on TV isn't necessarily related to age growing up as parents actually had a say in what their children watched. You gave me 31...about 25 years off!

You are 47
You arrived in front of the TV just as the TV Western was asked to move along.

1) All in the Family (though you did include it later)
2) decent ;)
3) check
4) James West
5) Dying
6) TBBT
7) Gilligan's Island
8) Mighty Mouse
9) acceptable
10) Hill Street Blues (or TAXI)
11) I Love Lucy (or Barney Miller)
12) THANK YOU for omitting S. C.
13) Leonard!!!

Missed it by eleven days.....You are 62
Your taste in TV sets you back to when Elvis first appeared on TV and Saturday morning cartoons became a thing. In other words, you're awesome.

I could not complete many of the questions. You did not have answer options that I would select. This quiz seems geared toward 30-40 somethings, not us older folks who actually watched true classic television. I like MeTV but do not believe you consistently capture all true TV classics. Some of your shows are of the "modern" age, not classics, which I find disappointing.

If it was me doing the programming, then there wouldn't be any series on that started in 1980 or later.
