The 21st century: have you been paying attention? This century is only in its first decade and already there’s a test?
I know many of you don’t watch television… but would you turn on CBC if you knew I was going to be on it? What if you knew, for certain, that I’d be doing something other than shilling CheapEats? How about if you knew that you could play along and show me up for the trivia-sluggard I truly am?
Live on television, I’ll be competing with 35 other Bloggers on Test The Nation: Trivia, a national quiz show where six teams compete to see how well we’ve paid attention to the build-up of 21st century trivia.
Test The Nation: Trivia is a two-hour television event, with viewers playing at home as they watch our six teams of Canadians compete in our Toronto studio. By the end of the test, you’ll know if you’ve been paying attention to the world around you, or if you’ve been sleepwalking through the last eight years.
Play Test The Nation: Trivia on Sunday January 20th, 2008 @ 8:00 p.m. (8:30 p.m. NT) on CBC Television and find out how well you know your world.
We, the Bloggers, are competing against:
- Chefs (a couple of CheapEats celebs are on this team – Bob & Ted, I’m talking about you)
- Cab Drivers (I wonder if they got Mr. Geography, one of my favourite Toronto cabbies),
- Flight Crews,
- Backpackers, and
- Celebrity Look A-Likes
Hopefully listening to CBC radio every morning will give me the edge I need, because – hear this CBC – you are my primary source of news. Well, you and other bloggers.
I wonder if anyone will be living blogging the show… hummm
