About This Quiz

The definition of classic shows seems to change with each passing year, and shows which once aired in the 1990s are now being called classics. Many of these shows were the inspiration for a lot of the shows that air on television today, and some of them were also responsible for coining some of our favorite sayings. Many of those classics include small-town dramas, workplace and family-styled sitcoms, and there were also many space adventures. 

When you think of the classics, some of the shows which come to mind are "I Love Lucy," "M*A*S*H," "Three's Company," "Bewitched," "All in the Family," "Gilligan's Island," "Charlie's Angels," "Miami Vice" and "Knight Rider." Some of these shows were the inspiration for other shows, some were rebooted and some were adapted into feature films. 

How well do you know the classics? If you were given screenshots of some of the most successful shows in television history, would you be able to identify them even though you might not have been around? Well if you think you can, there is only one way to truly find out how good you are, and that is by taking this quiz!
