Re: Millionaire 2018-19 Season Discussion [SPOILERS]

Millionaire ratings were never going to approach anything too great, such as J! ratings. Tamron Hall, whatever you think of her, probably in some people's minds has the potential to be the next Oprah in terms of ratings. She was a very liked anchor on the Today Show who left after somebody more prof...

Re: Millionaire 2018-19 Season Discussion [SPOILERS]

Rachel Ray moved into Millionaire's time slot here in NYC. Tamron Hall took over the 10:00 hour I assume to go against the last hour of Today in NYC.

Re: Football pre-emptions

Week 1 of MNF is a doubleheader. They don't want the second game to start too late so they move back the week 1 start time. ESPN used to show a week 16 game on MNF that was usually meaningless in terms of playoff ramifications, so a couple of years ago the NFL gave ESPN an extra game on week 1 and n...

Re: Mike Richards to Replace Harry Friedman

He might get rid of stand and stares on the final product. Be careful when you ask the monkey's paw for cleared boards...they might just cut a column. Easiest way; when was the last time 11 clues were skipped in normal play? Plus no changes to the post process. I don't think my suggestion is a good...

I recognized Nathan from being on a quiz show, but could not remember which one. I saw him of both of them since I saw every episode of those two limited shows.

Re: Confetti Discussion

I had a free life tonight after not being able to use it for three shows, and I thought Lost was not JJ Abrams because they talked about the NBC version, but I went with the crowd and it led to my defeat after getting another question wrong after.

Re: Fun with GSN's "Best Ever Trivia Show" [Spoilers]

2nd thing is...why do people choose jennings for the final round? why not go with the weakest of the 3 available? do they want to have a story saying that battled one of the best trivia players in usa history or do they want to win? would think the latter is the case otherwise why go on the show......

Re: Messages will return to Final

If the show is willing to pay me thousands of dollars for doing something I do on a weeknight in a bar for fun, I am going to try and follow their rules as much as I can without being troublesome. I guess I may not be good material for the show, because I would be so worried about getting Final Jeop...

Re: Millionaire 2018-19 Season Discussion [SPOILERS]

What we don't know is the timeframe Disney has before the rights would go to Sony. The last produced episode was near the end of August, 2018, but it airs next week (should be the 2nd chance week they said they wanted me for, but then didn't invite me for...such is life). Disney could potentially m...

I don't understand Wayne why you think ABC values this property anymore? The show has run its course. It never was a ratings success in syndication.

21 Pilots (or whatever) response
They asked about 21 Pilots on one of the online tests I think last year. It made me lookup them up on Spotify, and I enjoy some of their songs.

Before I played pub trivia tonight, they had Jeopardy! playing in the bar on one of the televisions.
