I thought 'Lovey' was Mrs. Howell's real name, not a nickname. Am I right?
Lovey’s first name was Eunice. Her maiden name was Wentworth.

If you had to confirm a Mary Tyler Moore nickname with Valerie Harper, no one knew the answer to that question unless they guessed at it.

11/15....Not too bad, but fun trivia!

13 out of 15
While I did get # 6 wrong (Mary Tyler Moore), MeTV got # 9 wrong.
The oldest Cartwright brother was actually Adam, not "Hoss".
He was the "middle" brother with "Little Joe" being the youngest.

You are absolutely correct!

A lucky guess on number 6, Mary Tyler Moore, gave me 15/15.

You got 14 out of 15
You're clearly on a first-nickname basis with these MeTV characters and stars. Nicely done!
Missed #6.
Really, MeTV? Really?
HOW would we know the answer?

Hoss was the middle son on Bonanza. Adam was the eldest.
Don't you remember?
Adam went looking for Chuck.
The eldest sons have to stick together.
djw1120 EllisClevenger 55 months ago
SusanWilliams was right.
Adam WAS the oldest and "Hoss" was the "middle" brother with "Little Joe" being the youngest.
I don't know who "Chuck" was.

Could that be the oldest brother from Happy Days, Chuck? They both got written out.
Difference being that Adam wanted out, and I got the impression Chuck hadn’t planned on it.

The first actor who played Chuck did ask to be let off the show because the character never did anything anyway. They did replace him with another actor, but he only appeared in 2 episodes before the wrote the character out.

13/15; missed #6 and #13 - I did not know either of those and guessed wrong.

11/15 and I was amazed at how many of the really obscure ones I got right and the "I should have known" ones I got wrong.

The my TV is on most all of the time is MeTV all my favorite shows and even at my age I'm super excited I get to watch the Flintstones. I wish they would show Bugs Bunny and Tom and Jerry. Scooby Doo would be great as well. Thank you MeTv for helping make TV great again

#9 Adam was the eldest Cartwright brother.
#11 There's a word missing in the question.
Wiseguy lavenderspring83 55 months ago
#11 Perhaps the words "with in" should be "within."
