Can you match these classic TV shows to their original titles?

Wait, which beloved sitcom began as 'Head of the Family'??

Some people say that your first idea is always your best. Nah. Several classic TV shows have proven that false. 

Name changes can be for the good. But not always.

Whatever title you might prefer, the fact is some television series changed their name after production began. A few rethought the title immediately after the pilot episodes — some others waited until the second, third, fourth season.

See if you can match these before-and-after titles from TV history.
