Can you match classic TV shows to their syndication titles?

Back in the day, hit television shows had multiple personalities. The notion of reruns was a fairly new concept in the 1960s. To avoid confusion, networks would retitle shows for their daytime reruns, so viewers would not mistake them for new episodes.

Popular shows made it to syndication, so lots of classics have alternate titles. How well do you know the syndicated titles of classic shows?

See if you can match the TV show to its rerun title — or vice versa. Good luck!
