C+, Terrible with Television

Right!
Don't beat yourself up too bad over this score - after all, this is one of the more difficult areas of television to remember. Obscure and less remembered shows are only going to come to you if you are or were a hardcore viewer of television, so your talents probably just lie elsewhere!

Well, this is definitely one of the tougher subject areas we could imagine when it comes to television. Despite that, you only missed a couple of the tougher ones, so kudos to you! You've definitely proven you know a considerable amount about television - certainly more than the average person!

Wow! This was one of the toughest subjects we could imagine for fans of television, but you still hit a home run with this one! This is the type of quiz that weeds out a true TV fan with those who casually watch reruns now and again. To someone like you, these shows probably don't seem too obscure or "less popular," but that's just because you know the subject area so well!
