"You got 10 out of 13. Were you a commercial success… or do you need a break?"

11 of 13. Pretty easy quiz. As it's been lately, the only two I had to guess, I got wrong. My "educated" guesses lately haven't been very educated. Well, as they say, if the shoe fits....🤔😏😕

12/13 - I don't remember the Atari ads, and I don't think many people now remember Atari.

9/13 not necessarily a commercial success

I can’t remember seeing any commercials with the MASH cast. Doesn’t seem like something Alan Alda would ever do.

I never bothered with what the Cast did outside of MASH, so I don’t see 7/13 as such a bad score.
