About This Quiz

Few of us act our actual age. In fact, many of us were born with younger spirits or older souls than those around us. If you've always wanted to know your true mental age, you'll have to rank these '80s television shows like a critic. 

Throughout this quiz, we're going to bring up a lot of nostalgic feelings from the '80s. It's impossible to think of shows like "Growing Pains" and "Cheers" without being taken back to a simpler time. The way you rank the shows we present to you will go a long way to figuring out how old you are at heart. 

Although television shows like "Family Matters" and "Full House" might have held our attention when we were younger, how would you rank them through the eyes of time? The rankings you give the shows we mention will certainly give you away. If you're still watching "Reading Rainbow," we're sure you are younger in mind than most. And there's nothing wrong with that! 

If you're ready to find out if you are really as old as you feel, this '80s television show quiz is the one you've been looking for! Rank these shows for us; then, we'll tell you the mental age you are. Tune in to this quiz, and get radical!
