Fun with TV "opposites"

by Adam Finley, posted Oct 29th 2006 7:06PM

patty duke showThis is a variation of a word game I sometimes play with my friends. Below I've listed a bunch of television shows, but instead of writing the actual name of the show, I've written the show's "opposite." I put "opposite" in quotations because obviously not all words have exact opposites, so I have to be clever sometimes and just come up with something that kind of fits. This makes it fun. Here are some examples:

The "opposite" of Taxi might be Bus.

The "opposite" of Everybody Hates Chris might be Nobody Loves Christie.

The "opposite" of General Hospital might be Specific Clinic.

The list is after the jump. See how many you can guess. You won't win anything, just bragging rights and a cameo appearance in my next sexual fantasy. Onward:

UPDATE: Congrats to everyone who has guessed correctly so far. There are still a few left, so crank up your brains, puzzle masters.

SECOND UPDATE: One more left.

THIRD UPDATE: They've all been guessed. Good job, everyone.
