Relieved to see that not many people came up with "The Nightingale." Not sure I've even heard of it.
If you watched the Feb 2, 2018 and March 31, 2017 shows, you've heard of it at least twice before. :D It has yet to result in a correct contestant response--two triple-stumpers and Monday's DD whiff so far. Here's hoping the writers take the hint. I'm thinking they're all part of the same book club, so they don't realize the relative obscurity of this trivium.

Surprised the Dakota is running as low as it is. I am from the NYC area and named my son Lennon, so I may be a bit biased on the topic, though.
