Re: Reruns week of 20th?

The episodes airing during the week of December 20 are new. The show officially confirmed that Amy is returning on December 20. I can't recall seeing any confirmation on whether Ken returns as host that week, so maybe that's why the listings show placeholders, but Ken likely does return that week.

Re: Season 38 Preemptions

Question for Danny: Do you know what percentage or how many stations got pre-empted this Thanksgiving? When I looked into this for Christmas last year, I recall the number being surprisingly low, possibly less than 5% of all stations. Sorry, I have no idea. I don't have the time nor energy to resea...

Re: Season 38 Preemptions

While Ken was reading clue 23 of Double Jeopardy!, WABC started airing the episode from the beginning. When Johnny Gilbert was introducing Ken, WABC cut into Ken revealing the correct response to clue 26 of Double Jeopardy! Edit: While Ken was reading the Final Jeopardy! clue, WABC re-aired the GEIC...

Re: Season 38 Preemptions

ABC's NHL game ran past 3:30 PM Eastern. As a result, their college football game didn't start until 3:50 PM Eastern. For stations that air Jeopardy! at 7:00 PM Eastern, Jeopardy! likely will not start on time, if any of Jeopardy! airs. As of the time I am posting this, the college football game is ...

Re: Are there any Tournaments in store for Season 38?

Local listings say the Professors Tournament will air in syndication, not as a primetime special. Is this new information? It is to me. I thought Ken would be hosting for the rest of 2021. The Professors Tournament was always supposed to air in syndication. Jeopardy! National College Championship i...

Re: Season 38 Preemptions

This Thursday is Thanksgiving, so Jeopardy! will probably be preempted on some stations for football. This Friday, as with every Black Friday, ABC is airing college football during the afternoon. This year, ABC is only airing one college football game on Black Friday, because they are airing an NHL ...

No, that record belongs to Adam Levin, with $53,999, who lost to James Holzhauer by $18.

Re: Are there any Tournaments in store for Season 38?

There was going to be a College Team Tournament, but it was cancelled due to Alex Trebek's passing. Actually, that's going to be in ABC primetime, titled "Jeopardy! National College Championship". It likely premieres on January 4th because ABC has an open slot for that day at 8:00 PM, tho...

Re: Season 37/38 Saturday Reruns

Interesting...November 27's rerun is the September 20, 2021 episode, just 19 days after its Daytime Jeopardy rerun, and a little over two months after its original airing. I can't recall any other time where Jeopardy! showed a current-season episode for a Saturday rerun.

Re: Jeopardy! Interim Host Thread

Ken’s Season 38 episodes will start airing the week of November 8 (the one-year anniversary of Alex Trebek’s death). I can also confirm thanks to the Xfinity TV Remote app that Ken will be hosting the weeks of November 15 and 22. My guess is that he will host until the week of December 27 (since the...

Yesterday, WBTW accidentally re-aired the October 8 episode (Matt [Day 38]/Claire/Max), rather than the correct episode (Matt [Day 39]/Jessica/Jonathan. They will be airing yesterday's episode tonight and tonight's episode (Jonathan [Day 2]/Brittany/Robinson) at 1:37 AM.

Gotta love local television stations! As I posted yesterday, the local station replayed Friday's show. They just gave an apology for their "technical" error and to fix their mistake, they are showing last night's game tonight. No mention of when they are airing Jonathan's 2nd game. ;) I a...

Matt had himself quite a week with three $50K+ games including a $70K+ game and is closing in on a $40K average. Unstoppable. Someone needs to take the DDs away when they gain control and cash in on them. At least do some studying on Roger Craig and try to find the optimum places where those DD may...
