    I want to say I was a little bit tougher on the scores from this round. The first section was one point PER answer. One for the Show, and if asked one for the band or person performing it (or band/person who made the song famous before it was used on a show) Second section.. it was 1 point for the FULL correct answer unless otherwise stated after the question how much it was worth. So yes, some had 2 part answers but worth only one point. I just wanted to clear this up.. since it was posted way back that in the future I would stop listing all points possible for a question.

    Also to note.. in the last few rounds your answer MUST match mine exactly.. I DID give credit this round for anyone listing the right answer somewhere in their reply (Such as American Dreams - Emerson Hart and Nichole Hart.. the answers I would have accepted were Tonic or Emerson Hart since Nicole Hart did not perform it). I do try to be as detailed as I can in what I am asking for and as stated.. you can always ask me any questions you have before you submit

    Ok that being said.. here are the results for round 6

    FunnyGirl - 78
    PSi - 74
    AIW - 73
    Weather Girl - 59
    Coksy - 56
    cadcmmngs - 56
    BHanson - 0
    Veronica -0

    Next round is an elimination round.. and should be posted this weekend. Any score disputes.. please PM me

    ALSO, if bhanson and veronica dont submit answers.. it is a 3 person eliminaton.

    You have till Tuesday midnight. If you have any questions please post them in the thread. When answering them, its easier if you cut/paste and put your answer after the question in bold or colored type. Good Luck all!! And feel free to look what every you dont know up..
    Can I answer now??? And not be counted, just for the sake of playing the game, I did not look ahead, and I will not look up, just answer what I can. Theme songs are something I'm good at identifying and busting out with for no apparent reason and I'd like to take a test just for my own satisfaction.

    ETA: I did pretty okay! Please don't eliminate me (just saw that message now, I made a point to say I was going to be away for at least a week!
