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...

My YouTube TV did not record it either, thanks.

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.

Re: WWTBAM returns to primetime

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.

Re: The Jeopardy! Anytime Test

In the old days before the online test, they gave you a test in person, and those who did not pass where asked to leave (tell people you missed it by one, they would tell you). The room had a lot more people than today's auditions. In my audition that I got invited to after taking the online test, e...

Re: The Jeopardy! Anytime Test

I came to the same realization when I heard the Maggie news, that those who auditioned under Maggie would not have a good chance of continuing. I know people have been contacted long after an audition though. The current season of J! Is almost over, they stop taping in April, there aren’t terribly m...

Re: The Jeopardy! Anytime Test

It's #4 that confuses me. What happens after clue 50? Do you get an option to submit/try again - basically gambling that your submission was your best effort? If you finish clue 50, does it automatically submit it for you, locking you out? I imagine after clue 50 if you submit, that's it. They figu...
