On which network did these shows initially air?

Was it ABC, NBC or CBS?

 

We all love talking about how there used to be three channels. Things were so much simpler back then! Cronkite was a newscaster we could trust, and we didn't get bogged down by the hundreds and hundreds of choices.

But can you tell those three channels apart? Do you know ABC from NBC? How about NBC from CBS? 

We'll name a show, and you tell us which network originally aired it! Good luck, and be sure to share your score in the comments section below.

  1. McHale's Navy
  2. Car 54, Where Are You?
  3. The Addams Family
  4. I Dream of Jeannie
  5. Hawaii Five-O
  6. The Flying Nun
  7. Sanford and Son
  8. The Partridge Family
  9. Kojak
  10. Chico and the Man
  11. The Incredible Hulk
  12. The Dukes of Hazzard
  13. Laverne & Shirley
  14. Family Ties
  15. Cagney & Lacey

It was a difficult guess.

13/15, which is pretty good considering I never watched about half of these shows.

"You got 13 out of 15" -------"Looks like you're really tuned in! Well done!" I got 3 and 12 wrong.

12/15 Not bad. I watched some of the old classic shows like Family Ties when I saw it at the end of the show, "Sit UBU Sit" dog productions appeared and say good dog..Woof!

Anyway, I had so much fun with guessing.

Well, CBS Media Ventures is a Paramount Company, if you notice the end of "Wheel of Fortune" and "Jeopardy", as well as other shows/series.

15/15...I wasn't expecting that one! I thought I'd missed #'s 1,4,& 6.

14/15. Thrown by the very first one, as it seemed like a natural for CBS. Since "McHale's Navy" was from Universal Television, NBC would have been my second choice, since then as now that network aired a lot of Universal shows.

Thirteen out of fifteen. Not bad, considering several of these were before I was born or old enough to remember.

12/15. Some of these were before my time, and I’m OLD.

How odd or scary that I just missed one.
