I shall spend the rest of the day thrashing myself about the head for blowing an easy 2 points on Q9. I knew better but got overconfident and answered too quickly.

They were on Cavett's show two days in a row, but not the whole week. THE MIKE DOUGLAS SHOW was the one that had "co-hosts for the week", and that should've been the answer.

It's a bad question. I conflated two talk shows. J & Y hosted for a week on Douglas, but the scene from Gump was taken from Cavett. I'll see how it plays out and score accordingly.
