Inconceivable! is a show that tests our panelists’ knowledge of the nerdy, the useless, and the obscure. Each episode, two teams face off to answer diabolical questions about TV shows, comics, movies, books, games, and more. Host Dan Moren and scorekeeper/announcer Lex Friedman oversee the proceedings, doling out hard-earned points where appropriate.
