On the Spot (not to be confused with the locally-produced 1984-88 Portland, Oregon game show or the short-lived 2003-04 retired Pricing Game from The Price is Right of the same name) was a short-lived (yet strangely bizarre) weekly syndicated trivia show. According to the slogan, its the show where its "Everything you need to know about everything!"


the series asks entertaining questions from different categories including:

  • Untold History
  • Globetrotting
  • Origins
  • Supernatural
  • In Sickness and In Health
  • Myths
  • Now and Then
  • Record Setters
  • Mad Science
  • Bad Ideas

Example questions may include:

  • Can a cow have an accent?
  • What came first, the color orange or the fruit?
  • As a kid, did Napoleon hated the French?
  • Was the name Google an accident?
  • Who got the world's longest standing ovation?


The show first aired nationally on September 18, 2011. The first 13 episodes were hosted by Eric Schwartz and included man-on-the-street segments where everyday people were asked trivia questions (and may got the answers wrong), which led to each question being answered and explained. Later episodes had only unseen narrator Pete Sepenuk.
