Nixon Trivia Question for Script Giveaway

Submitted by on December 3, 2008 – 3:02 pm 11 Comments

If you’re on my subscribers list and are among the first 5 people to answer the following correctly, I’ll email you a copy of the Frost/Nixon script, written by Peter Morgan and adapted from his same-titled play. The movie opens in limited release this Friday, December 5.

Here’s the question:

Richard Nixon’s first scandal happened in the 1950s when he was the V.P. candidate on Ike’s ticket. He was accused of being secretly funded by a group of California businessmen. To address these charges, Nixon went on live TV to make his famous “Checkers” speech, which was scheduled after what popular show?
