It asks which ones have AGED the best -- NOT which ones are our FAVORITES. Also, so often on these polls, many people seem to approach it as a quiz -- with right/wrong answers. Just sayin'. 😁

Are you guys trolling with the Happy Days aging the best question? Dang, it is so corny it makes me cringe. It is literally the show that created the phrase "Jump the Shark".

Why hasn't LA law "aged" better? Was it so wrapped up in the 80s ?
frances3agape 43 months ago
85 pct similar to the rest of you all (btw, I am Southern, but I don't say "Y'all" like in Mayberry!)

Biggest deviations:

No 2 - 70s sitcom = hard to pick but 22 pct Mary Tyler Moore vs 52 pct All in the Family (which would have been my 2nd choice)

No 7 - police procedurals = stunned only 15 pct Hill Street Blues vs 42 pct Adam-12 (my 2nd choice) and 36 pct Hawaii Five-O

No 4 s- cience fiction = hard to pick but for all of us – 48 pct The Twilight Zone vs 47 pct Star Trek (my 2nd choice). [Aside, I am enjoying the Kolchak reruns]

Would a ranking quiz per genre be too tedious? Or at least the top 2 choices in each?

kolchak still holds up
I agree, I think most of the people who participated thought that this was a "which is your favorite" instead of really thinking about which had aged better.

Forgot they also should give multiple choice too! For each answer as a few of each I would have picked 2 from each list! barring #'s 2 & 10! as mentioned below! Aside from none of the above! etc!
frances3agape AEDC49 43 months ago
Same here.
Should have read your comment before I wrote my last sentnce

I'll never know my percentage but that's because I didn't answer #'s 2 & 10 as I can't stand all the 8 shows mentioned and refuse to even support what I can't stand to begin with! also! Yes! they should have none of the above option like any real poll!! people should also do what I do and not be forced to pick from what they like none of the above, if they don't have that option and force you to pick from what you completely don't like don't pick a thing! as you can still see and figure your percentage out!

It wasn't a "which is your favorite" poll. It was a which has aged better poll. If you can't put aside your personal hatred long enough to participate in a simple questionnaire, then maybe you should seek professional help. And by the way, you sure showed them by not "supporting" quiz answers...

Picked Sonny & Cher (the least popular choice according to the current percentages) for the last one. Ted Ziegler never gets old.

28% similar.
12. Fighting against the establishment (the monolithic CBS) never, ever goes out of style.

Beside them yanking the Smothers Brothers, let's not forget the inexcusable and undignified stupidity behind CBS canceling Bridget Loves Bernie - people who were against religiously mixed marriages.
frances3agape Diz 43 months ago
WOW - interesting tidbit why BLB was cancelled
I liked the Brothers better than Laugh In. Hmm...were they in the same decade?
Diz frances3agape 43 months ago
BLB came on in 1972, three years after the Smothers were canceled. It was in the Top 10 in the ratings (maybe partly due to being slotted between All In The Family and Mary Tyler Moore) but was canceled after one season anyway. Apparently there were threatening phone calls and even bomb threats from groups who didn't want a Catholic/Jewish marriage to be portrayed in a positive light. Too bad. Good parents want their kids to fall in love with and marry whomever they choose.

Sadly, not much has changed in the 48 years since.
Especially recently a lot of nutbags have come out of the woodwork.
Although it can be a tough row to hoe, if different races/religions/ages/etc, if people are truly in LOVE, I have no problem with it

Really!! Carol Burnett over Dean Martin. Dean Martin sang great, told jokes, improvised in comedy sketches, had Las Vegas head liners as guests. Carol Burnett acted in mildly comedic sketches with middle of the road guests. Her sketches were a combination of slap stick nonsense and boring story lines.

There was no choice that said, "None of the above", which I would have used for two of the questions.

Well, 80%, fair, but it's an opinion piece, I'd choose Star Trek original over
Twilight Zone any day. My favorite thing with Star Trek is naming the episode
in the first 30 seconds.
TJ43 43 months ago
Would have rated Carol Burnett show higher but to much SCREAMING.
