Re: Learned League 85 - Official Thread

Try and find a Cheers rerun today; yes it's out there somewhere, but not everyone gets whatever channel it's on. Although I'm sure it's on Hulu or Netflix, that doesn't mean kids today are watching it. NetFlix until June 30th. Also on NBC's new streaming service Peacock. Do either of you believe th...

Re: Learned League 85 - Official Thread

45% for Jojo whoever the hell that is, and only 79% for Cheers?!? Back in the 80s, every kid knew about Leave it to Beaver, a 30 year old show, because there weren't as many channels and no streaming. There also wasn't too much in the way of cheaper alternatives to reruns of older shows like there ...

How did 80+% get cheesesteak? Northeast regional invented sandwich in close proximity to New Jersey. Cheesesteak was either going to be right or the MCWA. The question is: "An Italian-American named Pat Olivieri, who operated a hot dog stand in the 1930s in his hometown at the intersection of Whart...

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...

I'm in Horizon for my twentieth (!) straight season and A for my seventh straight. How have I stayed in A for so long? My career QPct is under .600. There is enough luck involved.

Re: WWTBAM returns to primetime

Apologies for the sidebar, shouldn't have wasted my time. Trying to get wayne to listen to logic or reason is about as fruitful as trying to teach math to TPH. It’s logical and reasonable to know game shows have rules, and it’s logical and reasonable to know S&P exists and what that is all about. B...

Re: WWTBAM returns to primetime

That's not possible, Alex must be lying. Everything that happens on Jeopardy! even Celebrity Jeopardy!, has to be codified in the official Rulebook.

Re: 2020 Jeopardy North American Audition Tour

Great information about the Zoom interviews above. Is there any understanding yet about whether the Zoom interviews: - Are directly related to the January 2020 Online Test? - Are being conducted in waves according to the audition city we selected? If so, is there a listing somewhere of which cities...

Google has been bringing back old Doodles. Not as good as the July 4th baseball from last year (which I still play sometimes), but today's Halloween 2016 revisit is a lot of fun.
Forgot about that baseball one. Great practice for the Astros since you can know what pitch is coming ahead of time.

Is this test now no longer being administered? Meaning they will now proceed to another Anytime Test with different clues?

Re: The Jeopardy! Anytime Test

The fact that there are no videos of the Anytime Test anywhere online suggests Jeopardy doesn't allow it. My personal opinion is we should respect that unless someone from the show explicitly says it's okay. I do have my test saved, in case we get the OK. I think it only suggests that nobody has ac...
