8/10
I used to enjoy the small television guide that was always in the Sunday newspaper when I was growing up. We kept & referred to it all week to see what was coming on tv. It even had a lil crossword puzzle in it. I even liked the "Parade" magazine that also came in the Sunday paper, not sure if that is even around anymore.
I don't remember Parade, but I remember the little TV guides that came with newspapers. We had a subscription to TV Guide that came in the mail every week and I don't know why as a kid I got so excited about it, but I did.

This quiz isn't really fair! You need to see the pictures to answer half of the questions! BTW, the cover photo shown ISN'T 1973 because The Jeffersons debuted in 1975! Fun Fact: 5 honored 20 years of TV Guide as both stars were on the first cover in 1953!
