Do you know how these TV stars are related?

See how well you know the television family tree.

In Hollywood, it helps to know someone. It especially helps if you have a relative in showbiz. Some actors were born into the trade. Others have a sibling or cousin who got a break.

We've paired up some TV stars from across the decades. See if you can correctly guess how they are related. Fair warning — they might not be related at all.

Good luck!

6/13. Nothing to brag about 😕. I knew the older ones. The newer ones left me clueless. How about this one: how were gossip columnist Hedda Hopper and William Hopper (Paul Drake on Perry Mason) related? Yep, they were Mother and Son, just like William Hopper's co-star Barbara Hale and William Katt were.

You couldn't be 13 since there are only 12 questions.

Only 12 questions, but I was told that I got 8/13.

They told me 8 of 13 too, but there are really only 12 questions.
I hate being lied to!
