Re: Jeopardy! Interim Host Thread

I don’t think anyone doubts that in September we’ll see new permanent host with a new set. But anyone else wondering if they raise the dollar amounts? The show doesn’t need to, but this would be a good time to do it, and the budget is certainly there as I wouldn’t expect the new host to get as much...

I think he stinks. He annoys me no end.
Why does he annoy you?
He is fine except for his voice and his earnestness. He doesn't have a broadcasting voice.

Re: Jeopardy! Interim Host Thread

"Jennings is part of the Jeopardy family, but he does not fit into the parameters of the search, according to people who have been briefed on it. Sony is said to be looking for “A-list” names — well-known TV or movie stars — who would be consistent with the “Jeopardy!” brand, which is basically a te...

Re: Monday, January 4, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Precalled Don Quixote for FJ, the first time in my life I think I have precalled the subject matter for FJ that I can remember. I knew it instantly...I couldn't think of any other 1600 literary characters that J! would care about. On a Google search, The Pilgrim's Progress, and The Misanthrope would...

Re: Monday, December 14, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Here's an easy way to remember when given a road name. The one that goes along the Hudson River? The Henry Hudson Parkway. :) In Manhattan, the West Side Highway is next to the Hudson below 72nd street if that ever comes up. That question is negbait if you are not a New Yorker, as most of the time,...

I only got FJ from the movie is coming clue, and Broadway is my best category. Something's Coming is a deeper cut for a song from West Side Story. When I relistened to the song, I do recognize it from being from the show... Universal has been rumored to be making the Wicked movie for years. It event...

Re: Fun with GSN's "Master Minds"

At some point, they need to have Brooke stop telling us the rules for every round. Or summarize faster. That part is another FF. Yeah, I would have thought they would have cut some of her scripted explanations this season, but they haven't. They eventually need to take away the teleprompter from he...

Re: Fun with GSN's "Master Minds"

Today there was a question that said something along the lines of, "Although it may hurt a bit, an epilator allows you to remove this." One of the contestants said gall bladder. I suspect that would hurt more than a bit. :) My four scars cringed on that miss. I matched Ken for the probe and laughed...

Re: Fun with GSN's "Master Minds"

I like the final round change (I think the audience needs to see the MM answer, if they let the MM answer off stage, there would be conspiracy theories. I know, if they really want to rig it, they could give the MMs the answers in advance, etc.). I also felt Brooke was more at ease and comfortable t...

I missed the Peppa Pig question (my two young kids wanted to know the question, as we turned it on just as the person being voted off that round said she was sorry she didn't know about Peppa). Can anyone help as to what the question was? Thanks. What type of animal is Peppa was the essence of the ...

Re: Hosting Question

Anyone know if Ken did indeed tape hosting games yesterday? I saw a hotel room sign on his Twitter feed which of course could mean nothing or could mean he was away from home yesterday morning. I don't mind if J! releases a shot of Ken taking the con (submarine term of leadership from Crimson Tide ...

Re: What ought to happen next?

Regardless of any decisions the grand poo-bahs make regarding any future streaming, one thing I would hope they can do is somehow convince the TV contract-holders to allow Jeopardy to put up the final Alex episode on YouTube where practically anyone would be able to find and watch it. Only this epi...

Damn. When will his last recorded game air? According to the article I read, Christmas Day. A nice last Christmas present for the fans but sadly it won’t air in a lot of markets. I saw that his last day in the studio was October 29. Has anyone heard if his last day was planned for October 29 or if ...
