    Well I watch LOST religiously and Bones and Numb3rs every so often. I am fairly certain those are all considered dramas and I think According to Jim is a comedy. So im going to go with C. According to Jim

    Sometimes you gotta go with your hunches, and that was a good one because it's correct for $1,000! All right, you have $1,000, which means you can't leave with less than that. However, I'm sure you'd like to leave with more than that, if at all possible. So let's see the next question for $2,000...

    Which of the following programs does not or did not air on the CW?

    A.) Smallville
    B.) The O.C.
    C.) Gossip Girl
    D.) One Tree Hill

    Still have all your lifelines.

    This is an easy one for me, as this show is probably my favorite teen drama ever. The answer is B.) The OC

    Let's see I know Dragon Ball GT and Jane and the Dragon are tv series. So that leaves me with The Dragon's Code and Dragon Tales. I'd do 50/50 but knowing my luck it'd leave me with those two. Hmmmm. For some reason I am thinking Dragon Tales is a cartoon, so hopefully this isnt the stupidest thing ever, but I am going to go ahead and go with B. The Dragon's Code final answer.

    All right, good logic. You saved your 50/50 and you're correct for $4,000. Playing for $8,000 now...

    Okay I think I know which one it is, but I am not completely positive and I dont feel comfortable just guessing on this one, so lets go with 50/50.

    Good idea. Let's put the 50/50 in, see if we can get some help here. I'll use a program I have to randomly eliminate two of the wrong answers, leaving just one wrong answer and the correct answer...

    Well I was stuck between FOX and NBC. So since NBC is gone I think I will go with D. Fox.

    Yep, FOX is the one that did it! Correct for $8,000.

    All right, you're playing for $16,000 now. You still have two of your lifelines and you're just two correct answers away from two more fantastic lifelines. So let's look at the $16,000 question...

    Which of the following companies aired Super Bowl ads featuring a man with "money coming out the wazoo" and one with dancing monkeys and the tagline "Well, we just wasted $2,000,000. What are you doing with your money?"

    A.) Scottrade
    B.) ShareBuilder
    C.) Charles Schwab
    D.) E*TRADE

    Well I know E-trade now has those commercials with the talking baby, but I am fairly certain they would do a crazy commercial like that too and I seem to have a vague rememberance of it, so I am going to go with D.) E-trade

    Yep, it's E*TRADE with the talking babies and it's E*TRADE that aired those crazy Super Bowl ads. You have $16,000 now. Playing for $32,000. You get this right and you can't leave with less than that...

    Let's see I actually dont know for a fact that any of the other 3 are true, but i am about 99% positive that D. is not true. I think that the real story behind that is that the role of Steve Urkel was orginally supposed to just be a guest spot for a couple episodes and turned up being a starring role. So I am going to go with D. as my final answer.
