Every TV show has its own community. And the bonding that occurs between the members of those communities is very much underestimated. Just like having the same interests brings people together, so does having an interest in a particular TV series. Or in TV shows in general. Therefore, if watching TV excessively is your guilty pleasure, you better stay tuned in on this one.

Attending or hosting a TV show trivia night can be a great way to indulge in what you love the most and bond with like-minded people. Whether on your own or with a group of friends, TV trivia is an excellent way to test your and your friends' knowledge of the best TV shows. Other than that, playing TV trivia games can help you learn more about your favorite shows and the details you might have missed out on!

Scroll down to check out some TV show trivia questions that will make you rack your brain and replay every episode of every TV show you have watched in your head. However, let us warn you: with the ubiquitous amount of TV shows available, trivia on TV shows can get pretty tricky. Therefore, we've also provided answers to the TV trivia questions listed below. Have you ever played trivia on TV shows or movies? Let us know!

Umm, fairly certain The Simpsons isn't live action? Literally the exact opposite. And I'm pretty sure many, many other prime time shows have been on much longer, as when you say "ever" that means anywhere in the world. Doctor Who and Coronation Street in the UK straight off the top of my head have run much longer (1963 and 1960) so long as the questions aren't entirely about US-centric shows. Unless I've totally misunderstood the question?
