Here are the few that the site is missing; if you have them or know where they can be had...

If it went to negative numbers, I'd have had a negative score. I've obviously not been keeping up--will need to work harder in future.

Television Tunes: bookmarked!

436 (1,10) but some of that was guesswork based on the time period of the show. I've never seen an episode of Make Room for Daddy, for example, but I got it rather quickly.

646. I've watched far too much television.

Okay, that was really weird getting Petticoat Junction and Stripperella back to back. The internet makes me shudder.

Wow, I hadn't heard of most of the shows they tested me on. It's definitely tilted toward older stuff.

It's definitely tilted toward older stuff.

I think they just use what's available in the database, which is just about everything. Seeing as TV has been around a while now, it would naturally be heavy towards 'older stuff'.

1420 in 20 rounds. It is skewed toward older stuff because recent stuff doesn't use theme music nearly as often.

772 in 10 rounds on the first try. Made the high score board and everything.

I can assure you none of my college professors would be the least surprised by this.

arruns: "It is skewed toward older stuff because recent stuff doesn't use theme music nearly as often."

Ya know, now that you mention it I've noticed the decline of the theme song too. Does anybody know -- is that a cost-cutting measure or have TiVo, etc. just rendered the standard opening theme ("Get your ass in here -- your show's about to start!") obsolete?

holy crap I'm embarrassed at how well I did at that: 782, first time round. I think it was because I got "Small Wonder" on the first note.

I remember the snorks theme song in two notes.

SOMEONE KILL ME.

greatest tv theme song ever. I only watched so I can hear the song, I always thought it was brilliant.

No Real People? No Salvage? No Sheriff Lobo? No That's Incredible? No Apple's Way?

There's a HUGE chunk of the late 70s/early 80s missing here. Well, I'll give them credit for a rich diversity of CHiPs selections.

No Sheriff Lobo?

Sheriff Lobo is here, chips ahoy.
