Re: J! in the Media

There was a much shorter clip from a Sacramento news station I believe late last week that I saw that also showed a Zoom audition.

Re: Looks Like Jeopardy! Has Resumed Production

The show has a new executive producer. He is going to want to make his mark on the show somehow. I can't imagine he isn't going to change the rules of the show or add new elements to the game like they do on Wheel. I am guessing he will want a new set eventually. There is no way he’s changing the r...

Re: WWTBAM returns to primetime

Reading the requirements, I don’t see any exclusions for people who were previously contestants on WWTBAM from applying. Do people think this is just an oversight, or the fact that this is via contestant coordinator selection that hot seat returnees would be filtered Out? Requirement #7 does not al...

Re: Fun with GSN's "Master Minds"

Spoiler
Leszek, it was fun watching your two shows. It would have been nice for you to become a Mastermind. Muffy was very relieved to defeat you, more so than anyone else I have seen. The Masterminds looked nervous in the second game.

Re: Learned League 85 - Official Thread

Describing the film as a "psychological thriller" led me completely away from the right answer. (I would have described it as a "nihilistic garbage fire", but that's just me.) I also had no idea it had made quite that much money. Joker stopped me from having a perfect day, I knew it had made the mo...

Re: Friday, June 12, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

It looks like all filming in Los Angeles was cleared to restart today so hopefully it won't be too long before we get new episodes of Jeopardy! Well... it's not that simple . (Link is to the unions' proposed safety guidelines, which will be a challenge for the J! production staff -- or any producti...

Re: On Both Jeopardy! and Wheel of Fortune?

There is a Business Insider article in my Google news feed that claims that you can't be on both J! and WOF because they are sister shows...You can't believe everything you read.

Re: J! in the Media

Bad news: It’s been announced that Netflix is removing the current Netflix episodes on June 27 and there hasn’t been an announcement about new episodes being added. This could mean the end of Netflix Jeopardy!, though there hasn’t been any announcement about Hulu episodes. The more I think about th...

Re: 2020 Jeopardy North American Audition Tour

Got my invitation today for a Zoom audition! Not much warning — the available slots are tomorrow, Wednesday, and Thursday. I’m so excited to have a shot, but I am kind of sad not to have the in person audition experience. I suppose I could’ve just not accepted a spot and hoped to be invited another...

Re: Reruns to start May 4th

I am surprised ABC is letting them rerun them. Maybe it was part of the deal that Jeopardy! Productions retained ownership of them? I think they would have had original episodes through the end of May, they probably think they can get more ratings out of showing these episodes.

Their ratings took a drop from the week before to about 4 million viewers, they are not lighting the world on fire.

Re: WWTBAM returns to primetime

I would have edited it out and reshoot if they want to bend the rules. There was no studio audience that would rat them out for doing so. It made me upset for a moment because they wouldn't do that for me if I made a mistake like that, but I just shrugged. I agree with Jeff, there are more important...

Re: Boardie Poll About Taking The Test

I took my first in person test for the Teen Tournament probably 23 years ago when Suzanne was in charge. Back then you had to send in a postcard. You took an in person test, and only those that passed remained. Over the years I auditioned in person about 5 or 6 times besides Trivia Nationals in pers...

Re: Friday, April 3, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I'd also put Notre Dame's and Michigan's first and second. Of the service academies, I know Navy's is "Anchors Aweigh", and if Army's and Air Force's are "The Caisson Song" and "Wild Blue Yonder" I know them, but I don't associate them primarily with fight songs. I thought the song was Notre Dame's...

Re: J! to Tape Without Live Audience

Especially considering that Jeopardy! is a national (well, international) game. The last I read, Boston's set to peak on April 14, and most of the US coasts will peak mid-to-late April....but the center of the US will peak a little later, perhaps in May. It would be irresponsible of the producers t...

Monya De is another of those who auditioned at Trivia Nationals in August. So far, I think none have won from this cohort (please correct me).
0 for 3.
