Will “More-On Trivia” be back this football season? That’s the promise that Glenn made on radio this morning, despite Stu’s protests. Why doesn’t Stu believe that Glenn will bring the popular segment back to the broadcast?
“You keep saying it’s coming, and then I know that you’re going to, of course, reverse yourself at the last moment because something too important has come up,” Stu said.
“Well, it’s only the most popular feature ever in the history of the Glenn Beck program. So you wouldn’t want to willy‑nilly just bring that back. Let’s not get crazy and just start throwing popular features out there. You don’t want to do that,” Pat joked.
“I’ve not been in any mood to do it for so long because we’ve done it for years and years and years and years, and the stupidity of people just grates on me sometimes and I just couldn’t do it anymore. But I just, it’s time to just point and laugh. It really is time to point and laugh again and so we’re going to be pointing and laughing beginning in ten days. But know that the stupidity will grind you down. You may point and laugh, but I look at it and go, good God, how do we survive if this is what our population is like,” Glenn explained.
“That’s why there’s an off season, Glenn. Time to rejuvenate,” Stu joked.
An unofficial More-on Trivia fan website explains:
During the season, mostly on Fridays, calls are made to convenience stores in the cities where each team is based to speak to a “Shelf Replenishment Engineer”. Each city it pitted against the other. Four questions are asked per quarter. The question range from politics to “What color is the sky?” Points are made each quarter and the city with the most points indicates the show’s pick for the game in question.
The rules, as far as we can determine are as follows:
- The person who answers the phone has to answer the questions.
- There are four questions, if they don’t know the answer, just guess. “It’s no big deal.”
- They cannot ask for help, they lose that question.
- If they agree to answer questions and then hang up the phone, they forfeit the quarter.
- If a hint is given to one city, the same hint should be given to the other.
- If listeners determine a flag on the field they can call in.
- If there is a tie, we go into sudden death in which a listener calls up, he/she chooses “Foreign or Domestic” and then they call a store. If the person who answers matches the description of the listener’s choice, the point is awarded to the appropriate team.
