C looks good, D looks good, K looks good, M looks good.

One thing puzzles me: the word was posted with the hint4 that it was encountered on a TV program. What kind of TV program could have included this word, if [number] is the correct definition?

I like M for most convincing, but I have to vote for D as most likely right.

Fill in any number(sic) and Jeopardy might fit the bill.

this too shall pass
at first blush, many of these seem plausible. but then, at second blush, most fail the dictionary test; I've narrowed it down to four, CJKorM... if forced to choose, I'd probly pick J.

From TV, could this mean it isn't in any dictionary at all?

And let's get it over with. I like H.

I vote for C

I may vote for something different tomorrow after having calmed down from a birthday party's worth of wine drinking (hubby's birthday, not mine) but today, C it is.

A sounds good but I wouldn't think it would be spelled that way with the second G hard. L would be good if it weren't said to be a verb but then given a noun definition. M sounds like the kind of definition I would have come up with, but didn't this time around. So I think I'll go with M
