I can't imagine they're actually going to visit all of these, as there is particularly a large glut in the midwest. Even Indianapolis which I can't recall being on the list anytime in the last 8 years.
Have they skipped listed cities in the past?

Re: 2020 Online Test announced - Jan 28, 29, 30

Is this the first time Providence has been on the list? I can't say for sure, but it is interesting that they're doing Providence and not Boston. Granted, the cities are only an hour from each other, but I'd imagine just in terms of raw population, Boston (and the immediate outlying metro cities an...

Re: It's happening!!! The GOAT Tourney, w/ Brad + Ken + James

For those who watched Jeopardy! in the 80s and 90s, do any of you recall the syndicated version airing new episodes while Super Jeopardy! began airing on ABC? Super Jeopardy! aired on Saturday night (paired with an ill-fated game show version of Monopoly). I think even then my local station aired y...

Re: Article about quiz show scandals - mentions Holzhauer

The more interesting comment was the one that claimed that Herb Stempel auditioned for Jeopardy! in the 1990s. Has anyone ever heard a rumor of this before?

Re: Thursday, October 17, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

If there's an FJ clue about a recent movie that I know instantly I figure it's easy, and I knew this one instantly. My wife said she thinks they should have removed the bit about "in Chinese and English" to make it more challenging. That certainly would have done the trick, but I still don't think ...

Re: Thursday, October 3, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

1. I wish Jeopardy would release the unread clues. We rarely get baseball categories on this show and most of the contestants stay away from them. I knew I was in trouble the moment they avoided the category while standing at their podiums and staring at most of the clues in the other categories. V...

Re: The Official TPH Education Thread (POTENTIAL GAME DAY SPOILERS)

Which leaves shows, it would be logical to try to think of a much beloved show that ended in 1964 and could have had a big finale. I Love Lucy was 1957, not the worst guess but a bit off. Gilligan's Island ended in 1967, would be logical to think lots of people tuned in to see if they get off the i...

I have seen the movie and remember the basic concept of that scene, but I had no memory that the word glitch was in it. Even if I had, I would not have known that the astronauts themselves actually originated the word. I actually got this one on the grounds of "What else could it be?," but I never k...

Re: Season 36 Changes & Predictions

I think James's streak (not his money winnings!) ended at a low enough number that he will play in a regular ToC, which I don't think would have been the case if he had won 50-60 games (as seemed very likely just a few days ago). That said, I don't know about "we could see a big upset. JH hasn’t nec...

Re: Season 1 info

I am kind of taken aback by such an over-the-top negative review after just one episode. But I guess there was proto-clickbait even in the days before literal clicks. By the 1998 article it seems all forgotten. (Although it is funny that the final comment in the 1998 article is about Tom Clancy vs. ...

Re: Friday, April 26, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

What does everyone think "Hello Tuesday" meant in James' FJ response? Do you think he was referring to 3 days prior to this show when he eclipsed $1m in earnings? Maybe he knows Tuesday Weld (who to my surprise is still alive - she is only 75, so there is no reason why she should not be alive, but ...

Re: Jeopardy 2019 North American Audition Tour

May 14 and May 23 are pretty far apart. That seems longer than they ever spend in a single city. Do we know which of these dates is more likely to be correct?

I thought it said that it was a word where the second letter was x.
Oh, that makes sense. (I removed the spoiler tag since it seemed that was generally not the practice - I can restore it if anyone wants me to.)

What was the category name for extremity? I thought it implied the word was supposed to have two xs. I could not come up with it either way.

It just said "you have completed the test" when I was done. When will I know if my test taking meant anything? They only inform you if you have been selected for an audition. Officially you never know you did not pass or if you passed but were randomly non-selected (although usually you can infer w...
