Re: How Did LeVar Burton Do as Host?

So far for me...

Cohen, Couric, Rodgers, Bialik, Guthrie, Cooper, Roberts, Stephanopoulos, Gupta, Richards, Jennings, Oz, Whitaker, Burton

EDIT: I had Savannah Guthrie listed twice.

Re: Thursday, July 29, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I was taught never to kick a man while he's down, but it's been really tough with Levar. And I grew up watching him on Reading Rainbow.

Thought Bogota was too obvious so I went with the only other Colombian city I could think of, Cartagena, not really expecting it to be correct.

Matt is a machine.

Re: Thursday, July 15, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I thought Tyler was going to bet a little more on DD2.

Andre is obviously a Simpsons fan with his response "The Little Barbershop of Horrors."

Suggested poll question: I omitted (or would have omitted) the "the" when writing my response
I had "What is The Ohio State University?"

Re: How Did Savannah Guthrie Do as Host?

I gave Savannah a 7. Better than most, but nothing to really make her stand out.

My list from best to worst: Cohen, Couric, Rodgers, Bialik, Guthrie, Cooper, Richards, Jennings, Oz, Whitaker

Re: How Did Mayim Bialik Do as Host?

Here' s my list so far: Cohen, Couric, Rodgers, Bialik, Cooper, Richards, Jennings, Oz, Whitaker I gave her a 7. As others have said MB had too many juvenile adlibs and reminders telling us she's been places (could you imagine if Alex piped in every time he'd been to a clue's response? except maybe ...

What do you think he should have wagered?
At least $6201. You should make the person in the lead get FJ! correct to win. I don't see what leaving $1600 if you get it wrong accomplishes.

Another CC error: Laman for Le Mans (also MB's pronunciation didn't help).

I had Stevens/Sotomayor.

Ankit should've lost for making that horrible FJ! wager.

I don't see what the big deal about the Pennsylvania Avenue clue is all about. A top of the column clue in a regular season J! game asking about a street in DC. What else could it be?

Re: How Did Buzzy Cohen Do as Host?

I don't know if it's because we had monotone BW as the last guest host or that Buzzy did the TOC, but Buzzy has been my favorite. Since his first game. I wonder how he would've fared during a two week regular season J! hosting gig - I still think very well.

Bad CC again: "What is geranium?" instead of uranium for Jennifer's response in the water category.

I also felt that Yemen was too obvious, but stuck with it anyways.

CC strikes again: "What is billings?" [lowercase], "Who is going Gwyneth Paltrow?" [an added random word], and no captions for the mole rat clue.

Re: Wednesday, May 12, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

The "valve" CC error today was probably the most egregious one recently, because it happened twice. And there have been a lot to choose from. What is going on with the captions?

Went with "Space Race." Gah.

On the clue for plagiarize, did anyone else respond "paraphrase"?
I did, too. I was wondering about that ruling.

No clue on FJ!

Why did they let Juliet get away with that phrasing during DJ? Bill’s explanation made no sense. Without that she doesn’t have a runaway.
Because technically her response was a question. However, TPTB like the response to start with Who, What, etc.

If there's a conflict airing J!, WABC usually puts it on a subchannel. Not tonight. :cry:

EDIT: WABC said it will air tonight's episode tomorrow (Saturday) at 7 pm (if the Draft ends on time). :roll:

Interesting, Santiago's population is greater than Buenos Aires when only using the city proper, but the opposite is true when factoring in the metro areas.
