Sweeps periods always start on Thursdays. That being said, the winter period kicks off this Thursday.


Yeah, I figured it had to do with it being February 1, and February being a sweeps month. (Same with the ToC last November. though they started the 2nd, i think. hmm...)


At the risk of sounding like one of those boardies who has far too much Jeopardy! minutae knowledge, it looks like February, 2012 is going to be the first non-August month in a while (at least since I started recording Coryats 3 years ago) that will have no "regular" games in it, as Alex mentioned the College Tournament will be immediately followed by the Teachers' Tournament.

That, and August 2012 may be the first ever August that has regular games.

Are you sure about that, because the schedule posted in this thread has Kids' Week running through August 3rd, which would presumably followed by reruns for the rest of the month? Unless you know something I don't? (About the August schedule, that is. I'm sure you know many things that I don't.)

Do you have a good online source for national ratings? We get the local books, but they're not consolidated to a national level.

No. I wasn't paying close enough attention to that. I just zeroed in on the season 28 schedule taking us into August for what I believe is the first time ever.

What was the taping schedule, Pat? Was last night's the second of the day or the fifth? And how long was it between your taping dates (if the show for the 29th wasn't taped immediately after Alex told you you had a nice long layoff coming up)?

Last night's show was the second show of five filmed on the tape day, which I believe was November 16th. When the next show airs on Feb 29, I think I give a hearty laugh when Alex says something to the effect of "our champion has been chomping at the bit for a whole month," as I had just been off stage for about five minutes. Ah, the magic of television.

By the time this airs, no doubt your future laughter will mean something like "Trebek, you buffoon: You said 'chomping at the bit', when all educated persons know it's 'champing'. Never mind that Google searches turn up about 10x more hits for 'chomping', I know the truth. You're all idiots! Hahahahahahahah!"

Also, welcome to the board, Pat, and gratz on win No. 1.

Basic subject-verb agreement.

The champion is champing at the bit, but the chompion is chomping at the bit.

past perfutational (past perfect/ future conditional)

Used when the parties in the conversation have different perception of how events have already transpired, where one party is waiting to see recorded results and thus perceive it as "events to be" and the other is part of those recorded results and thus regards them as "events past."

What happened to your original reply? I distinctly remember googling it and finding it somewhere else on the web.

Kids' week-Mon July 30-Fri August 3 2012(season finale week)


"November" is "fall"? Yet again, Alex moves further and further away from being a Canadian. :shake:


The final piece of the puzzle fell into place last week when Kids Week was announced:

http://www.cbspressexpress.com/cbs-tele ... w?id=30906

All of this information that was posted before the season began turned out to be 100% accurate. How did Invision know this MONTHS before an official announcement was made on anything?

I believe the original source over on The Game Show Forum (calling it "Invision" is similar to referring to this board as "phpBB") was an employee of a local station that carries J! -- obviously, those stations got the full schedule before the season started, but J! didn't release the info to the public at large until they were ready with press releases and other publicity material.

From Lisa de Moraes' article in The Washington Post about the Power Players Tournament and WWTBAM's "American Pride Week":

“Jeopardy!” has a huge advantage over “Millionaire” heading into its dueling flag-waving, Memorial Day walk-up episodes. This season, “Jeopardy!” averages 9.1 million viewers a day; “Millionaire” averages 3.6 million.

“Jeopardy!” boasts that it’s the country’s No. 1-rated “quiz” show (a subsection of the “game” show genre, “Wheel of Fortune” being the nation’s most popular syndicated program) and reaches 25 million viewers each week.

That means 25 million viewers sample the show across its multiple broadcasts in the course of a week. That number makes advertisers happy, because the assumption is that viewers see an ad break.

Not making advertisers as happy: The “Jeopardy!” audience skews a very old 64.8 years — which means half of its audience is older than about 65. The median age for “Millionaire” is 62.2. (For comparison’s sake, the syndicated tabloid show “TMZ” has a median age of 45.2.
