'Million Dollar Money Drop' Wrong Answer Was Actually Correct, MTV to Air Abortion Special and More

'Million Dollar Money Drop'Last night on Fox's 'Million Dollar Money Drop,' a couple bet on which product was sold in stores first: the Macintosh computer, the Sony Walkman or Post-It notes.

The pair was convinced the answer was Post-Its, but lost $800,000 when host Kevin Pollack told them their answer was incorrect -- it was the walkman. However, according to Gawker, their answer was right all along.

Though Post-It notes didn't go on sale nationally until 1980, they were sold in test markets as early as 1977. It's not clear whether Fox will correct the mistake.

they wont bring back Pee-Wee's Playhouse because Chairy quit when Pee-Wee wouldn't stop sticking his manhood between Chairy's cushions.

If HBO originally aired Fraggle Rock, why can't they
try to bring back the classic TV series, Pee-Wee's
Playhouse, just in case the special gets big ratings?
Then, Pee-Wee Herman can "scream really, really LOUD!"
