Occasional HowWellDoYouKnow Newsletter: December 2009


In November, we added another 32 quizzes to our catalog, bringing our total up to 723. You'll find the complete list of November quizzes at the end of this newsletter.


TV quizzes: We challenged readers to test their knowledge on the acclaimed series Mad Men and the somewhat less acclaimed America's Next Top Model. Staff writer Josh Spiegel started a series of quizzes on previous seasons of Lost that will continue through December and January.




Classic quizzes: We started the month with Chris Davidson's quiz on the Disney classic 101 Dalmatians. Kelly Jemo contributed a test on the Gene Kelly gem Singin' in the Rain, while Mike Durkin authored a quiz on the Frank Sinatra thriller The Manchurian Candidate.




2009 Blockbuster quizzes: Liam Neeson unexpectedly doled out ruthless vengeance in the surprise hit Taken. How well do you know it? Meanwhile, our quiz on Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen explored the subtexts and nuanced performances of the Michael Bay opus.




Cinematic survey quizzes: We published our third quiz on Movie Taglines, testing your knowledge on film publicity catch phrases. Meanwhile, Rocky Movie quotes scored with our audience and became our seventh most popular quiz ever.




Other highlights: From Saving Private Ryan to Steel Magnolias, from Friends Thanksgiving Episodes to Paul Blart: Mall Cop, from Twilight Cast Member Trivia to our weekly pop culture quizzes, we covered every corner of the entertainment map.



Coming in December: Watch as we add to our catalog of Holiday and Christmas-themed quizzes, year-in-review tests, a quiz for every episode of the first season of Arrested Development and more!

Cheers,
The team at HowWellDoYouKnow.com
