Can you guess your favorite show's working title?

Picking the perfect title is harder than it seems.

A lot goes in to creating the perfect television show. You need the right writers, a stellar cast and crew, and of course, a snappy title. When it comes to our favorite shows, it's hard to imagine them titled anything other than what we've come to know and love them as. However, the fact is, the majority of shows go through a number of name changes before we ever get to hear what the final title is.

Some are well-known, like we all know Saved By the Bell was Good Morning, Miss Bliss. We also know Seinfeld was originally The Seinfeld Chronicles... but that wasn't the only title considered. See how many working titles you can match to the TV show they belonged to. Good luck!

The original name for the Wild Wild West was The Wild West. The Wild West West makes no sense.

I thought that was Sanford & Son.

Anybody happen to know what the show "Head of the Family" was called when it got on the air?
