What does "A que no puedes" mean? This is also the title given for a popular Spanish T.V. program.

It probably is "¿A que no puedes?", with no accent on "que". It means something like "I bet you can't...", challenging you to do something. With "qué" the meaning is a too strange: "To what can't you?"
