You got 39 out of 40
You casually breezed through that without breaking a sweat!

Missed #40, though I remember that show starring Robert Conrad? The name just escaped me.

Breezed right through because even if I never watched the show, I had at least heard of it... until I got to #40, lol.

Robert Conrad and I think a couple of his sons--as I recall, it was kind of Baa Baa Black Sheep meets Emergency...

32/40. Not too bad considering I really never watched any of these shows. I'd heard of most of them but I get enough "drama" in daily life and the world news these days. I really enjoy lighthearted and comedy sitcoms and Saturday Sci-Fi!

38/40 Not bad. The two I missed were shows I didn’t watch or even here of…

Don't remember Richard Dean being on it (granted, I only vaguely remember the show), but wasn't Craig T. Nelson on there too?

"M.A.S.H." premiered in 1972, and ended its run in 1983. Just thought I'd tell you that in case you weren't aware of that fact, you dig? BTW, it's one of "MY" favourite shows, also. LOL!
