You have to be at least 50 to name these TV celebs

…or at least a devoted viewer of reruns.

The 1970s were a great time for watching television. From sitcoms to outer space, the TV shows of the era made us fall in love with teen idols and fabulous character actors.

Let's see how well you remember them. Of course, it helps if you were alive back then. If not, you still might do well at this quiz if you watch enough classic shows like those right here on MeTV.

Good luck!

I got 12 out of 12, and I DO remember all of these celebs and shows, but, MeTV, that doesn't make me "old". I didn't like that "it helps if you were alive back then". It's really amazing that anyone who was young in the 1970s would still be alive today! The 1970s were so long ago! It was the 1970s we're talking about, not the early 1900s!
Newsflash! 50 is NOT "old" or "over the hill" anymore.
