NPR Sunday Puzzle (Sep 17): Get to the Point!

NPR Sunday Puzzle (Sep 17): Get to the Point!
Q: Think of a seven-letter word that names a certain implement with a sharp point. Reverse the order of the second, third, fourth, and fifth letter, leaving the other three letters in place. The result will name a popular TV series. This series has other types of sharp implements in use.
If you've heard of this series, the answer is obvious... although I wasn't as familiar with the original implement with a sharp point.

Edit: Okay, so how many TV shows have you heard of with sharp implements. If you've heard of this one, you had the answer within seconds.
A: NUTPICK -> NIP/TUCK

  1. If they had simply said name a tv show with 7 letters that uses a lot of sharp objects, I still would have gotten it. This week was pretty easy, unlike last week... which had me stumped for days on end.
