Do you know your sitcom homes?

by Bob Sassone, posted Nov 14th 2006 1:29PM

Silver SpoonsI took this quiz over at Mental Floss and scored 100%. You have to match the sitcom with the house/setting they show in the opening credits.

By the way, I'm not bragging about that score, the test is just incredibly easy, especially since two of the pictures are very, very easy to identify, which means you can guess the others by process of elimination, if you don't know one or two of them. I mean, one of the shows is The Love Boat, so you know there's going to be a boat involved, right?

This might prove to be very satisfying, that you know you TV homes as much as you do your own. On the other hand, it might be kind of scary that somewhere in your mind you have actually memorized what sitcom family homes look like (and from shows that you probably haven't seen in a long time).

Also, just so you know, scroll down very slowly and stop when you get to the sitcom names. If you go any further you'll see the answers, and you don't want that to happen.

sanford and sonIs there a catchier tune than the theme to Sanford and Son? Yeah, probably, but it was a rhetorical question anyway, so let's forget about it and move on. Now where was I? Oh yeah, TV Land will be airing a 48-hour Sanford and Son marathon beginning Saturday, March 4 at 6 a.m. (EST) and running throughout the weekend. If you're a fan of the show where Redd Foxx basically played himself for six seasons, mosey on over to TV Land's page for the show and vote for your favorite episode. They'll be tallying up the results and the winner will be revealed at the end of the marathon Sunday evening.
