Yep, that's the way the artificial intelligence engines work. The more they are accessed, the more they "learn".

I've messed with similar ones which were quite easy to stump. Their knowledge base just wasn't built up yet. I stumped one tonight that was trying to guess a movie I was thinking of. When it guessed wrong I told it the movie was "The Dirty Dozen" and that a good general non-specific question woud be "Is it about a war?"

That's why I enjoyed this one. It has obviously been accessed quite a bit and has built up a lot of "knowledge".

I tried it two more times after the initial post and it successfully guessed Ted Baxter from The Mary Tyler Moore Show, and Granny from the Beverly Hillbillies.

It is learning to "mess" with you to make you think it's way off too. On the Granny one, it asked "Do you work for the Government?" When I answered "No", it immediately said, "I think you're Granny from the Beverly Hillbillies -- Am I right?"
