Sorry, Millennials, only Boomers can remember the Top 10 shows from 1973

Do you know your stuff?

 

The gauntlet has been thrown in a generational challenge. Will you be able to uphold the dignity of your age range by correctly answering the following trivia questions? Or will your people be conquered by quizzers from another time?! The folks that were born around the same time as you NEED YOUR HELP!

1973 was a great year for television, and we think you'll fondly recall most of the top-rated shows from that year. This is based on data collected by Nielsen Research Media, and the questions will be about the 10 shows they deemed highest-rated in primetime for the 1973-74 TV season. Make sure to share your thoughts and your score in the comments section below!

  1. This #1 show of '73 was a CBS sitcom based on the British show "Till Death Do Us Part."
  2. The second-biggest show was a historical drama set in Virginia during the Great Depression and World War II.
  3. This show took place at a junk widower's house at 9114 South Central Avenue in Los Angeles, CA.
  4. This show's finale was, at the time, the most-watched broadcast in television history.
  5. This was the last scripted primetime show from the '60s to leave the air.
  6. This topical show was a spin-off of an earlier answer on this list!
  7. The first name of this show's titular character is "Theodopolus."
  8. This variety show, tied for #7, featured hosts Cherilyn and Salvatore.
  9. This show's main character is the associate producer of a news show at WJM in Minneapolis.

See you @ Can you fill in the right names for these Twilight Zone episode titles? Come one come all to the MeTv Friday Night Movie Quiz.
Where everyone can take a guess or make comments to other quizzers.
There will be extra bonus movies for just coming by. Including entertainment for all. Feel free to ask questions, copy movie links and just plain join in the fun via communication. The MQ will be up until the movie is guessed and an hour to look over and pick out what you wish. Have fun doing so. There are no wrong answers but the first one to guess the correct movie gets their names put up for getting it correctly.
Good luck and enjoy

9 out of 10—-never watched Hawaii 5-0, my parents were stuck on the Waltons, MASH and Mary Taylor Made. Go Figure!

10/10. I was born in '77.
Wow, you're young to be a fan 'cause you wouldn't have even starting watching until the 80's. And then be hard pressed to find it in syndication. But I still like your avatar!!
The TV was my babysitter as a kid.
