So You Think You Watch TV?...

I have always been the type of friend that others can come to with their big, important questions or when they need advice. "Who's on Ellen today, Danielle?," for example, my friends would often ask, or "What was the name of that one guy in the episode of Friends where Phoebe and Ross date the divorced couple?," or even "What new movies are being released this week, and more importantly, which one should I go to on my first date with Randy, the barista at my local Starbucks?" and I'd always have an answer for them. It has never been challenged that I if there was an SAT on television knowledge, I would receive a perfect score. However, now I am throwing a similar challenge out to all of you in the form of my First Official Trivia Contest Giveaway Extravaganza!

In order to participate, all you need to do is leave your answers to the following questions in the comments section below. Not only am I doing this to see how many people are active readers, but also to spread a little bit of wealth during these tough economic times. The winner (the one who gets them all right) will receive a gift bag that includes TV on DVD box sets, as well as a few other memorabilia trinkets. Though I'd like to keep a bit of mystery about the exact contents in order to offer the surprise "Wow factor," if it is requested, I will provide a photo of the contents.

The contest began with this posting, and will end next Thursday night at 10 p.m. P.S.T. Feel free to tell your friends, and if this is well-received, it will become an annual thing.

And now, the questions:

1) What were the names of the HBO series that George Clooney produced and directed?

2) Name the Baldwin brother that was on Celebrity Mole and the one who was one Celebrity Rehab.

3) Current CW stars Jensen Ackles (Supernatural) and Kristoffer Polaha (Valentine) worked together in the past. Name the project. A bonus point if you know their personal connection, as well.

4) Survivor's Sugar claims she is a pin-up model among her fellow castaways, but she is actually a working actress. Name two well-known network programs on which she had a recurring role.

5) Which of the Army Wives guest starred on Doogie Howser as an early object of Vinnie Delpino's obsession?

and finally:

6) Who was that guy in the episode of Friends where Phoebe and Ross dated the divorced couple (Season 7, Episode 5: "TOW The Engagement Picture")?

Good luck!

Geez, Danielle, this is YOUR level of TV knowledge.I'm too lazy to look up the correct answers, so only #2 will be right.
1. Unscripted and STAT! The ER Musical

2. C-Mole = Stephen B
C-Rehab = Daniel B

3. Days of our MissGuided Lives

4. Emily's Reasons Why Not and Viva Laughlin

5. Vicky Mendoza (bonus points if YOU get the reference)

6. Kyle (played by David Sutcliffe who I like better as Christopher (pre season 7) or even as Kevin - Addison's hot SWAT man.

You're not supposed to look them up! And I threw in some I thought were really ridiculously easy to make up for the few that were hard to know without checking IMDb.

Crazy/Hot scale!!!!
