Re: Millionaire 2018-19 Season Discussion [SPOILERS]

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. If they would rather revive other 80s game shows for this summer instead of celebrating the 20th anniversary of the show, why do you think they would ...

Re: 2019 Current Events Study Guide

New Coke will make a brief comeback under a partnership with the Netflix drama Stranger Things . Season 3 of the show takes place in the summer of 1985, when Coca-Cola changed its formula for Coke. New Coke is considered one of the biggest marketing blunders of all time, and the revised product was...

Re: Millionaire 2018-19 Season Discussion [SPOILERS]

I can see Disney continuing to make new episodes and put it on the eight O&Os just to retain the property. There's no way to make the economics work on just the eight O&Os. And that would be a hella expensive way just to maintain the rights. It depends on how much they value the property. They are ...

Re: Jeopardy 2019 North American Audition Tour

Long ago before the online tests, I heard of a group getting two tests--the "main" test, and a second test which consisted of questions to possibly be used in future tests. If someone passed either test, they would move on to the interviews and mock game. This doesn't mean they would use the entire ...

Re: Millionaire 2018-19 Season Discussion [SPOILERS]

like i've said before, there is always the possibility that it stays on the 8 O&O's just to keep the rights out of the hands of Sony. Tell it to me again, Wayne! :? Between the lawsuits and the Sony email hack, it is known that Disney has the rights to the show in the US until they stop producing e...

Re: Jeopardy 2019 North American Audition Tour

Regarding cheaters, yeah, there's probably a few, although I think it would be very difficult to cheat when you only have a 15 second timer going. This is why they give everyone another test at the audition. If you score 45 online, but only 20 in person...yeah, they'll figure it out. I also want to...

Re: Jeopardy 2019 North American Audition Tour

30 was reported in a Boston session That 30 was a guess on my part. I didn't actually count. I think there was a no-show, and we ended up with a final group of only 2. (They pulled a random person up to repeat the buzzing in portion of the mock game.) interesting they pulled a 3rd person for that a...

Re: Jeopardy 2019 North American Audition Tour

I have seen them send people home after the paper test + before the mock games. Mind you, this was many, many years ago. "many years ago" = "before the age of the online test". Yes, that's right. It was a Brain Bus event, and I think they started with a short (5-question?) test, then put people in ...

Re: FJ Wager Plus/Minus scoring: an alternate statistic

Just for some James Holzhauer perspective, this is an average coryat for the first five games, with values doubled for those who played prior to the doubling (the original list came from 2015 during the Matt Jackson run, I checked Buzzy, Alan, and Austin, but there might be others I should have chec...

Re: Jeopardy 2019 North American Audition Tour

Video of one of the West Palm Beach auditions . Looks like about 50-50 men vs women. I was able to count 21 people, 10 female, 11 male. 21 per session jives with the number per session we've heard in the past. 30 was reported in a Boston session, either way, they seem to take multiples of three so ...

If you've been to an audition so far, let us know how many people were in your session and if you can estimate the male:female ratio, post up. Also, I know there's been radio silence from Jeopardy regarding upcoming auditions, but with the schedule we know so far, I would expect more cities to start...

Just curious, has anybody heard about Who Wants to Be A Millionaire being renewed for next season? Last I heard, it wasn't likely, but I haven't seen anything definitive. ...because of ratings, or cost!? I don’t get it at all. Ratings keep going up, and costs are steady.

If/When Alex has to leave the show, I would hope that Jeopardy would record a winner-take-all match between Brad, Ken and James for Alex's last hosted game.
