TRUTH !!
Toni Twin Time (1950), Hosted by a young Jack Lemmon, was a 15-minute prime time show featuring pairs of teenage twin girls. During the talent portion, girls would sing a song, perform a dramatic recital, or play an instrument. Afterward, the audience would guess which girl had had her hair done professionally and which had used a Toni Home Permanent kit.

I got numbers 1 (educated guess), 6, 7, 8 (educated guess), and truth (complete guess).

I got number 2 if you count "no" as an answer to a can you name... question! LOL I know, I know!

I said block for number 4 but didn't know the full name. I don't know how I missed The Who--that just makes sense.
