You know that you're a couch potato if ... you can name the television series in Group B that can be added to Group A, and give the reason.

Group A: All in the Family, Gilligan's Island, The Addams Family, The Beverly Hillbillies
Group B: Get Smart, Green Acres, Hogan's Heroes, I Dream of Jeannie, McHale's Navy, The Andy Griffith Show


Answer

Each series in Group A had opening theme music with lyrics: "Boy the way Glenn Miller played, songs that made the hit parade" ("All in the Family"), "Just sit right back and you'll hear a tale, a tale of a fateful trip" ("Gilligan's Island"), "They're creepy and they're kooky, mysterious and spooky" ("The Addams Family"), "Come and listen to a story about a man named Jed, a poor mountaineer, barely kept his family fed" ("The Beverly Hillbillies"). Thus, "Green Acres", with lyrics "Green Acres is the place to be, farm living is the life for me", can be added to Group A. The remaining series in Group B did not have lyrics with their opening themes.
