Due to some unfortunate technical difficulties brought about by The Blot's own stupidity, today's regularly scheduled post won't be posted until tomorrow. That is if I didn't lose the post completely, which I'm really hoping didn't happen. I won't be sure of that until I get back into the office tomorrow morning, so everyone please cross their fingers! But as the old saying goes, the show must go on.
I've been thinking of ways to get our many readers to start posting comments on the site to give The Blot Says... more of a community feel to it, and so I guess today is as good a day as any to introduce a new segment to the blog: a trivia contest. The winner of the contest will be awarded the very first "The Blot Says... No Prize" and maybe, depending on who wins, a personal phone call by me to congratulate them on their victory. Its only one question and shouldn't be that difficult. So here goes:
1. It is a long standing tradition for television shows to take popular characters from a show and spin them off into their own show. These shows are appropriately named spin-offs. As an example, Beverly Hills 90210 introduced the character Jake Hanson for two episodes before spinning him off into the new show Melrose Place. The most recent example of this is when Addison Montgomery (Kate Walsh) was spun-off from of Grey's Anatomy to start the new show Private Practice. The person who can come up with the TV show that has the most spin-offs wins the inaugural The Blot Says... Trivia Contest.
Please post all answers in the comment section for this post. This isn't a trick question and there isn't a set answer, but I do think I have a pretty good idea of the winning answer. We'll see what everyone comes up with. You have one week from the posting of this contest to answer, so the contest will be officially ending Wednesday, October 25th. The Blot will be the final judge if a show is accurately categorized as a spin-off or not. Good luck to all!
