Since I am getting old, I got only about 80% of the 'reference' questions.
Here is a real question:
What is the longest running quiz program on TV?
Answer is a quote from their webpage:
Move over, “Jeopardy!” The Guinness Book of World Records has recognized IT’S ACADEMIC as the longest-running TV quiz show in the world!
This fall, IT’S ACADEMIC, the nation’s foremost high school quiz program, will begin its 46th season on NBC4 in Washington, DC. This is a unique achievement in the ephemeral world of television, where shows come and go---often not lasting a full 13 weeks.
I really wish that Mr. Jennings had found a Saturday to sit through the tapings at Channel 4 in D. C. He would have seen high school kids doing what he loves to do best. ALSO he might have see the Thomas Jefferson High School of Science and Technology team, who he mentions in Brainiac, competing in this their local challenge.
My bias about It's Academic is that the team from Montgomery Blair H. S. that I co-coached won the D. C. and over-all championship in 1995.
