HARD QUIZ 8PM, WED­NES­DAY, ABC

TOM Glee­son is get­ting quite the name for him­self as an acerbic smart alec but that’s ex­actly why this quiz show works so well. If you have seen Glee­son on The Weekly

with Char­lie Pick­er­ing’s “Hard Chat” you’ll get the drift. In this, con­tes­tants each re­ceive five ques­tions on their “ex­pert” sub­ject. No sub­jects are too triv­ial or ob­scure, and so far have ranged from The

Brady Bunch to the Bangladeshi cricket team to Henry VIII. Then there’s “Tom’s Round”, a topic of Glee­son’s choos­ing; be­fore it’s the “Peo­ple’s Round” and the fi­nal play­off. Su­perbly awk­ward.
