About This Quiz

You've come home from work, it was a hellacious day and you could use a good laugh. A while back, there wouldn't have been much of a selection on television; it was either one of many reality shows, a gritty crime drama or a news program. If you were lucky, you could catch a sitcom from years past, but it felt like there was nothing new to watch. Now mind you, there are still many reality television shows out there, some that seem to never disappear (we're looking at you, "The Bachelor"), mostly because they became so popular in their first few seasons. But now, comedies are coming back onto television sets across the US.

Along with some awesome new settings and storylines, writers brought characters to life in ways that weren't available in times past. Of course, with all these new innovations, television characters became more realistic and approachable. Instead of having the family with the picture-perfect life with the spunky kid whose worst offense was throwing a party when their parents were out of town, parents have new struggles to face when it comes to raising children, ones that are more relevant to today's kids.

Have you ever wondered which show you would be able to live in? Which character would you consider a best friend? Put aside the remote, pause your on-demand show and tune in to this quiz.
