On the Spot

``Everything you need to know about everything.'' With a slogan like that, you might have high expectations when watching a show like ``On the Spot.'' The show is a lightning-fast game of trivia that provides answers to questions such as ``can a cow have an accent?'' and ``who got the world's longest standing ovation?'' It may not tell you everything about everything, but chances are you'll come away from each half-hour episode a little more knowledgeable than you were before you watched it.
