  19. 19. 9. In 1989,Prakash Jha created a 13 episode show for DD titled Mungerilal ke Haseen Sapne about an aam aadmi from 1980s India.

  27. 27. 14. This award, also known as the Razzies, is a parody award show honouring the worst of cinematic underachievement.

  29. 29. 16. While the first documented use of X was made by Skolsky—in a 1934 New York Daily News article, it was officially adopted only in 1939. As to why X is used, there is a popular theory that it was coined by Margaret Herrick. She had once said that when she first saw a particular object in 1931, it reminded her of his Uncle X. This theory was disputed by Skolsky and claimed that he was the first to use it, although it was originally meant to be a derogatory substitute word. Walt Disney was the first to make use of the word X in a positive light. What is the above theory explaining? Or simply give me X.

  31. 31. 15. Orange is the New Black is a critically acclaimed show and a multi-Emmy award winner. What is special about its nominations though, is that it is the first show to have been nominated for an Emmy as both a Comedy and later as a Drama. This change in category was a result of a rule change by the Emmys, which specified that any show with episodes that follow a certain criteria would be considered a Comedy by default, while those falling outside this criteria, would be considered as Drama by default. Thus this show has since been nominated as a drama. What was the rule change, which is quite appropriate and seen in almost all comedies?
  32. 32. Episodes under half an hour-comedy Episodes under one hour-drama by default
