Re: Jeopardy! Interim Host Thread

OTOH, Zach tomorrow? Rude! Imagine battling your way to become a 4x champ, almost making the ToC, and they plop another 4x champ next to you - which applies to both Zach and Brian. And the player at the third lectern? Yikes! According to the This Week On Jeopardy page, Zach will be back on Thursday...

October 4, 1995 should be available soon at archive.org. When I looked it had a message that it was being modified/updated.

Also, bring back tie games (that is, both contestants come back the next day whenever one occurs) as well.
I can't see that happening. That must have been a scheduling nightmare for both the show and the contestants who got bumped.

Re: Administrative Note

Does this affect just the board? I haven't been able to get J! Archive to load for a few hours.

Re: New old games in the J! Archive

I think that the way J! Archive is coded, a game page has to at least name the contestants. Overhauling the code to accommodate a single placeholder is probably not in the plans (although I imagine a brief note in the FJ at the end of the M$M wouldn't be out of the question—then again, the entire e...

Since Alex hasn't won an Emmy in over a decade, this award was probably at least partially given based on his current health issues. Of course, he certainly deserved it anyway, but it's still nice to see him get another Emmy.
In his acceptance speech he brought up getting the pity vote.

Re: Rule Change Effective 4/29/19 - No More FJ! Shout-Outs

I never really care that much, and am totally fine with personal messages. Outside of "What is Aleve?", none of them seem really memorable. You don't think "Sorry Cory, No Jag", "Turd Ferguson", or "Kebert Xela" were memorable? I've actually found quite a few of the joke responses enjoyable. I've s...

Re: New old games in the J! Archive

Is one movie more famous than the others? IMO the movie with Richard Mulligan would have been the most famous. That was Little Big Man with Dustin Hoffman. Chief Dan George was nominated for a number of best supporting actor awards (including the Academy Awards and Golden Globes) and won at the New...

Re: New old games in the J! Archive

Indeed the final seems very tough. The miniseries starring Gary Cole had just aired earlier that year so maybe it could have been fresh in the mind, and it won 4 emmies which could have been even fresher in the mind, possibly just before taping. (Then again I’m not sure anyone knew who Gary Cole wa...

Re: New old games in the J! Archive

The Tim Buthod vs. Laurie Chambliss vs. Bill Lipscomb game from Nov, 1992 is a skeleton so I couldn’t enter a correction through the game. My daughter noticed the date is wrong - it’s entered as Nov 25 but should be the 26th.

Re: Maintaining Confidentiality of Who Has Won on Jeopardy!

In an article about the current ToC on the Jeopardy website they may have given away some wildcard spots by including a picture of Austin, Tim and Buzzy behind the podiums. They did jump the gun by posting about the recent $1 win. There have been times when a new contestant with the same given name ...

Re: Friday, July 21, 2017 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

I watch J! at 4:30 Central time, but on Facebook, George mentioned that the show airs at 9 Central (which it does as some cable packages get it from a Spokane station), so that's probably where he watches from. YES TV's Alberta feed airs the show at 8 PM Mountain Time (which would be 9 PM Central)....
