15/16. Missed the last one.
You know, Pete & Gladys might be a sitcom rip for METV.
Just saying.

15 out of 16 I guess being 66 pays off. My favorite show though was I Love Lucy

I've seen most if not all episodes of Ironside, loved the (final as it turned out) movie The Return Of Ironside and quite a few episodes of Perry Mason and most of those movies. However, I do not recall ever combining Raymond Burr and the term "smoky eye" in the same sentence in my life. (No disrespect intended, sir...no, I don't know where Sergeant Brown is...yes, sir, I'll go find out, right away, sir...)

''You got 14 out of 16'' ---------------Did you come out on top? No I didn't. I got 13 and 16 wrong. What was your favorite show from 1961?

13/16. Not too bad, considering this was two years before I was born.
