With a glut of Simpsons
trivia games cluttering the market, an increasing number of fans are consulting experts for the behind-the-scenes background information that could seal a win. So wise comic-book guys watch Simpsons
reruns daily at 5:30 and 6:30 p.m. on KMCI Channel 38, waiting for tidbit-slinging moonlighter Meredith Hoenes. Best. Host. Ever. Hoenes, KSHB Channel 41's traffic correspondent by day, elaborates on episode origins, clues viewers in about obscure allusions and exposes covert guest appearances. And unlike her look-at-me predecessor Taunia Hottman, the low-key Hoenes makes sure the spotlight stays on the show.
