TV Media Insights – TV Ratings & News – Network TV Show Reviews and Daily Ratings

One of my favorite past times, of course, is TV Trivia, which over the years has resulted in over 3,000 questions to-date. Each issue of the TV Media Insights Daily will close with a TV trivia brain teaser. I Love Lucy and The Honeymooners, All in the Family and The Mary Tyler Moore Show, Ed Sullivan and Carol Burnett, Kojak and Columbo, The Waltons and Little House on the Prairie, St. Elsewhere and thirtysomething, Marcus Welby, M.D. and ER, Friends and Everybody Loves Raymond, Star Trek and Lost, Law & Order and CSI, Desperate Housewives and Grey’s Anatomy, Survivor and American Idol…you name it and we will have a question for you in each issue.
