Television Trivia

The folks at Stump Trivia may have had a premonition that Dan was going to write about 1980’s television. Today’s trivia contest is directly related to television, some of these are from the decade that brought us MTV and the Los Angeles Summer Olympics.

All of these shows below star/starred a famous TV actor/actress who became famous from a DIFFERENT, more popular show that is no longer on the air. Your challenge is to name the actor/actress. An example is the TV show Joey. The answer is Matt LeBlanc. You do not need to indicate that LeBlanc was previously on Friends or that he was in a Bob Seger video with Daphne Zuniga.

1. Watching Ellie
2. Bob Patterson
3. Dave’s World
4. Ink
5. Hooperman
6. Veronica’s Closet
7. Normal, Ohio
8. Dirt
9. Dragnet
10. October Road

Please leave your answers in the comment section and don't use Google or IMDB. Good luck!

Nichole - I'm very impressed. During Monday night's trivia, we could not come up with Ed O'Neill for Dragnet.

Two more to go. Anyone else want to take a guess?
