Mensagem: 

   Second tought here.

   Even having to do with description (great) but it´s interesting to know what is a WH-question and how to make it.

  

http://www.eslgold.com/grammar/wh_questions.html

...

If there is no auxiliary and the verb is "be," invert the subject and verb, then add the appropriate wh- word to the beginning of the sentence.
 


(He is someone.) ? is he
Who is he?    
(The meeting was some time.) ? was the meeting
When was the meeting?  

 

  So, taking Dale´s example =>
What TV show is great?
The Jo Soares TV show is great.

(The TV show IS great.) --- What TV show is great?

 

  So, you expect to single out a TV show in particular within  a group of shows, at the time of the question.
