A couple of quibbles. A "halftime show" is not a site. Reliant Stadium in Houston, Texas was the site. And "showstopper" should also be accepted as a song from musical theater. And Show Low, AZ? Really?

gtbeam3r, I remember that place from when I was a little kid -- 1982, 83. "Where a kid can be a kid" was their tagline, and it was quite similar to Chuck E Cheese. I lived in Nashville at the time, but I don't know how widespread they were.

I also live in the atlanta. We had many Showbiz Pizza's in and around the city. They were very popular in the 80's.

The Chuck E. Cheeses clue is completely relevant in my hometown. In my area Showbiz Pizza was the only place around and then they later all became Chuck E. Cheese's restaurants. I live in the St. Louis area.

Please Please Please accept only Showbiz for Showbiz Pizza. I was so proud of myself for knowing it, and so mad for it not working.

Totally agree. Just "Showbiz" should be accepted. We had one before they became Chuck E Cheese and we always referred to it just as Showbiz.

I agree, started trying different spellings of Showbiz when it wasn't accepted thinking I somehow misspelled it.

For song from musical theatre, I took it as you wanted the tile of a song including "show", tried there's no business like show business. Maybe make the clue a little clearer?

Showbiz was bought by Chuck E Cheese I believe. I put in Showbiz and that didn't work - it should.

Showgirl is kinda weird? I tried strip show, nude show, sex show and a couple others but showgirl never even crossed my mind? Maybe it's an US thing, IDK.

The clue didn’t say “What a stripper performs in” – just “Stripper”. That was what told you it was looking for showgirl as opposed to a type of show. Grammar counts in these quiz clues, and if you pay attention, it makes getting the answers much easier. Plus, it eliminates the need to beg for the acceptance of additional answers that don’t actually fit.

In my job I teach a lot. I always advise those teaching that if they use an unexplained abbreviation (UA) and someone listening doesn't know what it means then they were stupid to use it - the listener is not at fault. So, how does quizmaster justify using the UA "HBO"? I've no idea what it means (I have never lived in the USA). There were lots of other things wrong with this quiz for the non-American audience but that one sticks out like sore thumb.

HBO is a very well-known TV channel, that now is responsible for many popular shows around the world. If we can know what "BBC" is, then you ought to know HBO. But if you don't, then I don't think "Home Box Office" would help you get "Showtime".

I really dont think you can compare the two... you can't say"if we can know what BBC is, then you ought to know HBO" Noone ought to know anything... one is not equivalent to the other.

But I do disagree with cardinal sin. By that logic many of the questions asked on this site makes the quizmaster/maker stupid... since not everyone always knows the answer... really, knowing what it is, is part of knowing the answer.

If I ask you what the capital of albania is an you dont know, that doesnt make me, the asker, stupid.

I do agree though (that is where you are coming from I believe) That the question needs to be understable. But how something is formulated and what language is being used (common words or their highly elusive counterparts) is something other than not knowing part of the question..

Plus I really dont see anything wrong with the quiz for non americans. Some might be a bit harder but all are correct.

It is not like asking for the most sold product. And instead of giving the worldwide answer it gives the answer only applying to america... (many of those quizzes out there, which is fine, as long as the title is most sold/most popular or whatever is the case, in america)> The oprah program is still a talk show, no matter where it originated. So you cant call them wrong.

Though I do have my doubt about calling a showgirl a stripper... not the same thing as to how I know it. A showgirl to me is like a cancan dancer, someone that performs in a dinner show, with all the feathers and stuff. Not someone that strips and twirls on a pole and gets dollar bills..
