Stump the King -- three spin-offs
Well last weeks trivia question wasn't as hard as I thought. It would appear that the readers here at TV Squad are a bit more knowledgeable about TV, if not more web savvy, than I am used to.
Along with all the answers I got for last week, I also received a request for some information. A reader by the handle of Jefferson wrote, "There was a really crappy show on Fox in the '90s - and yes, I am aware that does not narrow down the field. It was a 1/2 hour sitcom that centered on a group of individuals that survived a nuclear blast and was now living together in some stranded hut together where they have to rebuild civilization and all that stuff. "
Well, as I'm sure many of you know that series was called Woops! starring Evan Handler and Cleavant Derricks among others. It ran on FOX for one season in 1992.
On to this week's question ...
In the history of television there have been three hour-long dramas that were spun off from half-hour sitcoms. In other words, a character or characters from a half hour sitcom eventually showed up as the main character or characters on an hour-long drama. What were those three sitcoms and their spin-offs?
Please feel free to answer in the comments section. The first correct answer will get their name plugged below in this post later, and the satisfaction that comes with being a member of the King's court.
Also if anyone has a trivia question that they think will stump me or just really need to know the answer to, go ahead and let us know.
Well, it only took fifteen minutes but at least the question was hard enough to get readers to team up. The answers were Lou Grant, Trapper John M.D. and The Bradys. Congratulations to PB and David Nelson for getting it right.
I like being challenged to come up with tougher questions. Check back in next week and see what I came up with.
