FICTIONAL PRODUCTS

The name of this product, introduced in 1952, is a portmanteau of four of its ingredients; however, a fifth ingredient proves the most memorable.

What is VitaMeataVegaMin? (Fifth ingredient - alcohol!)

I know "ingredients" might not be the best word, but it seemed more helpful to call them ingredients than "components".
Very nice.

wow dude....you really are a nitpicker...add non-mainland territory, oh anal one...and seeing you will probably say there could have been a show that took place in hawaii or other former territories off the mainland...will add "series set"...which will override the chance that one episode took place in said land...and while we are at it, maybe just change the whole thing to "set in a current US territory"

so let's just do that

"This "aerial" show is the only major broadcast network series to have been set in a current US territory

and i am not budging on what a territory is...most geography people will say washington dc is not a territory and from a trivia standpoint it is never considered a territory, but a federal district
It’s called pinning, not nitpicking; but good on you for proving you can’t comprehend the difference
they are fricking trivia questions...not ironclad corporate world contracts...are you a lawyer or something?
Not my fault you don’t know how to write a proper question

you should go edit the wikipedia page for american tv series locations...i edited several entries on that page today...not going to bother with that...going to leave the blurb about that nugget the way it is
Now that you’ve been there I guess I’ll have to edit it

This is the kind of question I come to this thread for.
Never been on J!, but once won a knockoff version that aired on local access TV.

I like it!

Misread the question, and thought it was asking for a tsar, not for the musical interlude, so I humorously just thought "Peter the Great" because a good part of the time in regular J! play, he's the czar. I thought the answer would be way too easy for a FJ!

If it proved too hard, you could add

brisk, or fast-paced, or uptempo
to the clue, but I think it's already in the sweet spot. I just had a brain malfunction.

I'd like to see what Watson does with this one. My first thought as a card-carrying pedant was that if even two people have the name, it is no longer unique. I like to picture Watson spinning his wheels, emitting smoke, and completely self-destructing over that problem. That's what would happen if we were in the Star Trek universe anyway.

A STRANGE CLUE. THE ONLY WINNING RESPONSE IS NOT TO RESPOND.

UNITED STATES GOVERNMENT

In 1865, the Secretary of the Treasury swore in William P. Wood as the first head of this division, which would later informally start to shift its responsibilities in 1901 at the request of Congress.

Being a pedant for substance rather than form, my pedantic reaction was "How would you know they are all citizens?"
