Stump the King: thirtysomething
As I'm sure you've heard by now quarterlife was a huge failure on network television. Those of you who read my unfavorable review of the show last week know that I didn't see much of a future for the show anyway and yet, I feel that the show was still treated unfairly by the people in charge, i.e. NBC.
Producers Ed Zwick and Marshall Herskovitz designed this show to appeal to a very specific audience, men and women in their mid-twenties who spend a lot of time online. Now, that may seem like a very small demographic if you're a 40-year-old TV addict like me. but I actually know people in their mid-twenties who don't watch network TV. One of my friends, who is chronically hip insists that the only time he watches network television is online or on DVD. Aside from making me feel very old, his revelation cleared up some things for me.
For those young people who don't pay for cable, quarterlife was probably right up their alley. After they come home from their entry level day jobs and vent on their video blogs, they could go to quarterlife.com and get knee deep in something they really cared about.
I will echo the thoughts of many who said the show wasn't racially diverse enough, but considering this show came from the guys who brought us thirtysomething and Once and Again that didn't really surprise me.
Now here is this week's question...
What is the first name of the youngest Steadman family member on thirtysomething?
Congratulations Toby, Leo is the correct answer.
