Occasional HowWellDoYouKnow Newsletter: January 2010

December was by far the most prolific month we've had ad HWDYK.com. We added 59 quizzes to our catalog, bringing our total up to 782. You'll find the complete list of December quizzes at the end of this newsletter.

2009 was an awfully good year for our site. We'd like to sincerely thank all of our staff, contributors and especially our readers for making 2009 so successful.

At year's end, we compiled a list of 25 of our favorite quizzes published during 2009. How many of them have you taken?

Star Trek quizzes: We gave our readers a chance to test their knowledge on the 2009 blockbuster Star Trek with a two-part quiz. Reader Mike Durkin also contributed a quiz on Star Trek: First Contact.

Decade-in-review quizzes: How is your long-term memory? We ran a quiz on Movie Box Office in the 2000s, which ended up being December's most popular quiz. Also, right before New Years, we published a quiz on Oscars in the 2000s.

Christmas quizzes: As the holidays approached, we served up quizzes on the classic Miracle on 34th Street, Home Alone, The Santa Clause and A Muppet Christmas Carol.

TV quizzes, part 1: Ben Willoughby made an outstanding contribution to the site, writing a quiz-per-episode series on one of the decade's best TV programs, Arrested Development. Meanwhile, we recapped the latest iterations of reality shows Survivor, The Amazing Race and Top Chef.

TV quizzes, part 2: Now that we've reached the midpoint of the 2009-10 TV season, Eric Hughes wrote quizzes on the first halves of the current season of The Office, Community and Parks and Recreations.

Other highlights: From Taylor Lautner Trivia to Diamonds Are Forever, from 17 Again to Fast and Furious, from TV Shows by Theme Song to Pixar's Up, we covered every corner of the entertainment map.

Coming in January: We'll run quizzes on 2009: the year in movies, pop culture and music. Also, look for quizzes on 27 Dresses, The Hangover, Total Recall, The Dirty Dozen and much more.
