Re: How Did Mayim Bialik Do as Host?

Sam Cooke would be another candidate for posthumous 1960s hits.

If the new champ goes on a long run we can say that the opponents that he defeated were Fochted.

Anderson Cooper had a show on CNN and is also on 60 Minutes.

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: Jeopardy! Interim Host Thread

After seeing Ken host for two games I can say this: he brings a razor sharp mind and a quickness that the other host candidates cannot compete with. He's into and on top of the game the way that a good sports announcer is.

Do you notice anything in common between say, WHH and JFK with regards to these Presidents?

For FJ I went with Frankenstein. Did anybody else go with this? I think it's not a bad guess, particularly if you thought of Young Frankenstein or Bride of Frankenstein , but I think those for whom the Hammer versions are the definitive Frankenstein adaptations would have remembered Castle Frankens...
