Can You Guess the Mystery Guest?
What's My Line? (1950) was a famous game-show hosted by John Daly, where celebrity panelists were challenged to determine the occupation of the contestants. It also had a section with a mystery guest, where panelists had to identify the identity of a celebrity while blindfolded. In both sections the panel asked questions that could be answered yes or no, and the questioning could continue for a given time or until the panel got 10 negative answers. What's My Line? became one of the most successful game shows in history, it inspired many similar versions around the world, it won several Emmys and Golden Globes and in its run of 17 years it became the longest running game-show in U.S. primetime television. After getting cancelled in 1967 it was immediately followed by a syndicated daily production that ran until 1975. During its original run of 876 episodes, hundreds of celebrities participated in What's My Line?, and several of them were mystery guests more than once. If you had been a What's My Line? panelist, Which of these mystery guests would have been harder for you to discover? The poll only includes the celebrities with more than 4 appearances in the show.

Golden Age of Television
21st November is celebrated as the World Television Day. Let's celebrate it by remembering the golden age of television. The period that ran roughly between 1948 and 1959 is referred to by many historians and scholars of the medium as the “Golden Age” of television. Which of these do you think was the most impactful in the television history? Discuss the poll here Vote in polls about other TV eras: the 70s here and the 90s here. Note: US TV Titles with a Minimum of 1,000 votes and an IMDb rating of 7.0 or above (except first title). The shows that started in or after 1959 are not considered.
Veiled (But Not Unvalued) Beauties
"Veiled" to be taken here in a very broad sense... Indeed, in a time where beauty relies on the "shown" and the sexy, whether for men or women, we tend to forget that many civilizations in the world had set modesty as a standard of 'beauty'. This poll doesn't intend to elevate one style or fashion above another but only tries to show that even a veil or a headscarf shouldn't necessarily be considered as the antithesis of freedom, and certainly not of a certain vision of physical attraction. Many actresses have worn a modest clothing for a specific role, one of them was "drawn" that way, and it would be a lie to say that they weren't feminine or attractive, regardless of any religious consideration. In that regard, what is your favorite picture of a TV/movie woman wearing either a headscarf or a (non-bridal) veil? After voting, you might discuss the list here

Favorite 60s Sitcom
From Wikipedia- A situation comedy, or sitcom, is a genre of comedy centered on a fixed set of characters who carry over from episode to episode. Sitcoms can be contrasted with sketch comedy, where a troupe may use new characters in each sketch, and stand-up comedy, where a comedian tells jokes and stories to an audience. Sitcoms originated in radio, but today are found mostly on television as one of its dominant narrative forms. This form can also include mockumentaries.
