Sunday Puzzle: It's Time To Rhyme
On-air challenge: The answer to each clue is a 6-letter word that rhymes with the last word:
Ex. Cause of muscle pain ---> STRAIN
Last week's challenge: Last week's challenge came from listener Patrick Berry of Jasper, Ala. Name a long-running TV show in two words. Add a C and rearrange the result to name another long-running TV show also in two words. What shows are these? Here's a hint: Both shows are currently on the air, although the second one was most popular the past.
Answer: Candid Camera, American Dad.
Winner: Shari Meyer of Somerville, Mass.
Next week's challenge: This week's challenge comes from listener Steve Baggish of Arlington, Mass. Think of two synonyms — one in 5 letters, the other in 4. The 5-letter word starts with S. The 4-letter word contains an S. Change one of these S's to an A. You can rearrange the result to name a group of people, in 9 letters, that ideally have those two adjectives describe them. What group is it?
