A Fun Little MeTV Quiz...
« on: February 20, 2019, 08:24:25 PM »
It's a Thursday in 1972 and you are home from school either sick, or snowed in....or both!

What choices do you have on TV during the day and how do our "biased" opinions rank with the rest of the country??

You can find out here:  https://www.metv.com/quiz/pick-what-would-you-watch-on-tv-all-day-on-this-random-thursday-in-1972

Unfortunately, some of our beloved shows are NOT choices.

Game shows are doing well here, or maybe it's just this group. Password over Jeopardy as it currently stands is a surprise to me.

Also not an option, though it'd certainly be my choice:

2pm: turn off the dang tv and go to the basement to work on your PRICE IS RIGHT "home game."

When I took the quiz earlier today, Password and Jeopardy were dead even.

Holy crap Let's Make a Deal is winning its timeslot by a mile! 

MeTV has done a lot of game show-related posts, quizzes and articles.  I often thought they'd try to get the rights to rerun something game show related with how much they post about it.

I'm scratching my head as to why two different Andy Griffith reruns are winning their timeslots.

Simple.  Andy Griffith Show is one of their most popular reruns and has played in primetime in the same timeslot for almost as long as MeTV has been around.

Q3:  I probably would have picked Gambit over Sale, since I preferred that show over Sale.

Q8: Had Three on a Match been a choice, I would've had to flip a coin vs. LMAD.  That would be a tough choice as I loved watching both.

Iíve thought this too, even if itís some of the stuff USA and FAM reran 25 years ago, or even something recent from the 2000s. Air it in the mornings or at midday.

Granted, I do like their morning block of grandma detective shows. Takes me back to watching them with my grandmother. :-)

I guess I didn't factor in the MeTV angle, seeing as 90%+ of the shows in the survey don't currently air on MeTV.
