Was this a No. 1 television show in the 1950s, the 1960s or the 1970s?

Try to place these top-rated titles into the correct decade!

In 1950, Nielsen Media Research began compiling its ratings of the top shows on television. For the past 70 seasons, networks have been scrapping for that No. 1 spot. And at the end of each season, one fortunate title has sat atop the throne.

The following dozen titles were all the highest-rated series of a television season sometime between 1950 and 1979. (Only Gunsmoke spanned decades, ranking No. 1 from 1957–58 to 1960–61.)

See if you can place them into the correct decade. Good luck!
