16 out of 18. Blew #7 as I've never seen 77 Sunset Strip and #11 because I can't stand Gunsmoke.

13/18. # 17 could have been either Denny Crane or the Big giant head since he played both.

16/18. Missed #5 & #11 because I never watched those shows, but many of these were pretty easy.

11/18; not too bad a score on a very tough quiz.

12 out of 18. Not so great. I saw this quiz and went back and forth with myself wondering whether I should do it or not. It was tough. Even though 11 would be considered OK, I think that may be a little low. A tip of the dunce cap (mine) to whoever does at least 15.
