Why is Marisa Berswick whistling a happy tune? Of 699 players, she’s the only one who hit a perfect six-for-six in Box-Office Bull’s-eye Round 17 (we tossed out this week’s TV question when ABC brushed its planned episode of Crumbs off its schedule late in the game). Roughly one in three players correctly read the clues that The Pink Panther would be the week’s box office champ, but the music chart again derailed many of you this week. Andrea Mitchell went five-for-six, but couldn’t ride Train into the winner’s circle; the band’s For Me, It’s You choo-choo’ed out of the top 10 after only one week. Ditto for Michael Combs, who missed perfection when Curious George‘s soundtrack let the aria out of Il Divo’s balloons and took the No. 1 album slot. But we know The Man in the Yellow Hat is proud of Julie Cosgrove, Ryan Waxman, and Teddy Muilenburg, who also missed grabbing the brass ring by just one answer. Are you the next player who has a Date Movie with destiny? Will another contender turn Curious George‘s chart success ”Upside Down”? Keep playing, and check back here for next week’s result.
