Quiz Description

Turn-On was a televised skit show that for a long time held the record for being the only show ever canceled after one episode. However, despite the urban legend, it was not canceled during the episode, as it did air to completion even in the Pacific Time Zone, although some affiliates did not carry it. This will be about as specialized a quiz as you can get.
