"Everything you need to know about everything." With a slogan like that, you might have high expectations when watching a show like "On the Spot." The show is a lightning-fast game of trivia that provides answers to questions such as "can a cow have an accent?" and "who got the world's longest standing ovation?" It may not tell you everything about everything, but chances are you'll come away from each half-hour episode a little more knowledgeable than you were before you watched it.
