The form is telling me that the answer to question 2 must be a number. That's going to limit the number of possible choices. :lol:

I gave my answer for #2 added on in #3 and for #2 I spelled out my answer with a typical 2nd grade substitution code of numbers for letters.

I put my answer for #2 in the comments section. My "answer" for #2 is a seven-digit number made famous by Tommy Tutone.

Considering I don't watch a lot of network comedies or dramas, and certainly don't pay attention to award announcements, I look forward to my first mini-TD elimination.

I took part for the first time (hopefully I did it right). I'll be eliminated on the Senator question for sure, or even the one before it if I'm lucky.

Well as long as I have been accepted as a participant, as well as my answers, that's good enough for me on my first one. ;)

I have no freaking clue on the Primetime Emmy. I'll guess somebody :)
Never been on J!, but once won a knockoff version that aired on local access TV.
