Re: Friday, January 22, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I've always assumed the host knows the wagers after they're locked in (so actual possible winners/losers can be known for all 8 combos of responses), and that he knows who got it right (and hence who wins) after the bong-bong. It would be embarrassing to have a Moonlight Oscar moment. But seeing th...

Re: Ken Jennings as a Host Poll

I voted for "Sorry, but I hope they find someone else." No offense to Ken, but the reason I don't want him as permanent host is because then, anyone who Ken played against would be ineligible to be invited to future Jeopardy! tournaments because of the 1950s quiz show scandals, and I don't want the...

Re: Season 37 Preemptions

Today's episode of Jeopardy! was preempted on KTRK Houston because ABC is currently showing impeachment coverage.

Re: Jeopardy! Interim Host Thread

I don’t know all the S&P rules but Ken hosting practice games while still a player is a little weird. Maybe not crossing a line but getting close to it. Hadn't heard that story; hope it may an urban legend. I think "little weird" may be an understatement, "a lot weird" more closely matches my react...

Re: Jeopardy! Interim Host Thread

This article from The New York Times states that a spokeswoman said that Ken has taped 30 episodes, so once Ken started hosting, they probably went back to doing five shows a day, since 30 episodes would be six weeks. https://www.nytimes.com/2021/01/07/arts/television/alex-trebek-jeopardy-johnny-gil...

Re: Jeopardy! Interim Host Thread

Never heard of Dane Cook. Mostly known for his stand-up comedy shows done in the round and comedy albums. Onstage, he's extremely physical, with big gestures and body movement imitations. His biggest laugh, that I remember, was for his "cross the street, dammit" bit, which I can find audio of, but ...

Katie Couric: According to the Los Angeles Times, Katie will be an interim host for a week. One week!? That’s one or two days work for Couric. This revolving door will probably be a nightmare for the staff and crew with repeated taping breaks and resets. But who knows. I wish them all the best of l...

On another note, production will resume on January 11th. We know the show opened to contestants from the rest of the US in December, but with whatever rules are in place...maybe the show will put up those velvet ropes again?
