Re: What's in store for the 3 Jeopardy giants after GOAT?

I think High Stakes Wheel of Fortune would be hysterical. Or an hour of Pyramid with the three of them playing would be fun.

Re: What's in store for the 3 Jeopardy giants after GOAT?

I saw James in some interview recently say that he wants to be a game show villian, I assume in the way of being a chaser type personality.

Re: What's in store for the 3 Jeopardy giants after GOAT?

An article from Deadline that quoted a ABC executive saying something to the effect of looking for something to put the contestants in: https://www.google.com/amp/s/deadline.com/2020/01/jeopardy-primetime-specials-possible-followup-with-goat-trio-ken-jennings-brad-rutter-and-james-holzhauer-jeopardy...

Re: GOAT Tournament Day 3 (1/9/20) Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Is there a possibility that James will be brought back after GOAT? <sarcasm>If the ratings continue like they are, ABC might bring back these contestants for a weekly J!/comedy hour show</sarcasm> I was happy to pick up Lach trash on the cybersecurity category, as well as getting both finals correc...

Re: ABC Plays Keepaway

Right now I'm wondering about fastest finger and if the first ten questions are gonna be super-softballs like previous celebrity editions. Considering they can have help, I really hope not. I can't imagine they are going to bring back the fastest finger first. I would have never predicted they woul...

Re: GOAT Tournament Day 1 (1/7/20) Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

8:00 p.m. ABC – Jeopardy! Tournament of Champions (premiere) Viewers: 14.01 million (#1), A18-49: 2.3/11 (#1) If the tournament holds these wonderful ratings, I would expect some more J! primetime programming in the summer, maybe something akin to Super Jeopardy! where the field is expanded.

I'm with Alex - that think music seemed short. Did anyone time it?
I just timed it, 30 seconds.

Re: GOAT Tournament Day 1 (1/7/20) Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I enjoyed watching this, I thought the production values were very good (new music orchestrations especially, ABC stars giving clues (maybe we will get sitcom stars tomorrow), they only aired one segment on a contestant (the others will be shown the next two nights). I also like the question writing...

Re: J! in the Media

There is a podcast called “It was a Thing on TV”. It is three guys reviewing really bad short lived TV shows from the 1970s and 1980s. They seem to base their reviews off YouTube and Wikipedia articles. To give you an idea of what it is about, here are some shows they have reviewed: Hello, Larry Mr...

Re: J! in the Media

So we watched the ABC show / promotion for net week tonight. I was surprised to see Michael Strahan doing a non-sports program. I thought his narration was excellent, and he handled the interviews pretty well, but a little thin in substance. Michael is on Good Morning America, GMA3 in the afternoon...

Re: Wednesday, January 1, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

However - the fact that we're ONLY talking about 10 years ago puts it back in the mix. Add to that the fact that the title of the movie just screams J!-bait - Precious: Based on the Novel 'Push' by Sapphire. Any work that is adapted into another form is something J! writers love, particularly books...

Re: Wednesday, January 1, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I said Sapphire for FJ, who was the writer of the film...J! thinks Oscar winners are very important, like it or not...especially if there is something interesting or uncommon about their win (like being single named) or winning for screenwriting when you used to be a stripper, for example.

Re: Thursday, December 26, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Many have already spoken about the millibar clue, but no one harshly enough. The neg was stupid enough, but the lack of reversal was simply idiotic and absolutely indefensible. And of course, the clue itself was garbage. Do they have a process where you can challenge your answer immediately on the ...

Re: Friday, December 27, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I've gradually come to accept the fact that many J! categories aren't explained very well - sometimes by accident, and sometimes on purpose. Or, maybe sometimes I just don't "get" them until 2 or 3 clues go by. For example, the FIGURES OF SPEECHES category - it took me two clues to realize, "Hey, t...

I said Mexico immediately for FJ, but doubted myself because I thought it was too easy for a final or I was overlooking something, but I couldn't think of a better answer so I stuck with it.

Their AirTrain clue was technically incorrect, you can't take an AirTrain directly from Penn Station. You can take an AirTrain from the Newark Airport stop to get to the terminals. Hey, you beat the guy with the train avatar to this one. The cars being divided into many small compartments is very a...
