The Nielsen rating is an audience measurement system of television viewership, and it's been around for a long time.

In the '90s, they began tracking computer, internet and video game usage through telephone surveys. Yet before then, their focus was solely tallying up what audiences were watching the most on television and what networks they were on.

Remember how the '60s decade was full of hilarious and legendary television content? Let's see if you can guess the top ten productions from the 1960-1961 season. Good luck!

Note: Nielsen ratings include a variety of shows, from sitcoms to game shows and more. And there's a trick question in this quiz!

  1. Which show snagged the number one spot?
  2. Which show was the runner-up?
  3. Which show came in third?
  4. Which show came in fourth?
  5. Which show came in fifth?
  6. Which show came in sixth?
  7. Which show came in seventh?
  8. Which show came in eighth?
  9. Which show came in ninth?
  10. Which show snagged the last spot in the top ten?

Can you name the top ten shows from 1960-1961?

3/10. This quiz was badly structured. Instead of asking what show was in each specific top ten position, they should have listed three shows airing that season and asked which of the three was in the top ten.

10/10! But yes I cheated with my Complete Directory! Ratings of other MeTV shows: My 3 Sons tied for 13th with 77 Sunset Strip, Ed Sullivan was 15th, Perry Mason was 16th,Bonanza was 17th, the Flintstones was 18th,The Rifleman was 27th, and Peter Gunn was 29th! Fun Fact: After moving away from each other, Bonanza & Perry Mason became top 10 shows next season: Bonanza was 2nd behind Wagon Train and Perry Mason was 5th!

8/10. Life in the good days…A lot of westerns plus Andy Griffith. The hillbillies had not premiered yet.
Yep, and they were #1 in their first 2 seasons!

6/10 I knew I should've picked 'both' on #8. I also thought "Perry Mason" would be in the top ten.
It got there the following season! Read my post above!
