Re: Final Jeopardy! Clues

What's the longest FJ clue ever? Probably this one from the last game of the 2016 Power Players Week, at 157 characters in length: https://pbs.twimg.com/media/Ci6dgC3UgAA2VNg?format=jpg&name=small [EDITED TO ADD] That FJ was presented by D.C. mayor Muriel Bowser, who read the clue from a card; the ...

Great guess by Bob and Eric except for the missing two letters, which of course they realized:

Bob even threw in two extra letters in order to satisfy that part of the clue!

Leslie and Eric both doubled up $10K in the QF round to earn wildcards from an equal position. And Bob won his QF with $20,000. I wonder if there have been any other competing trios (besides Scott Weiss, Jamey Kirby, and Anders Martinson) whose members finished their previous games with an identica...

Re: New old games in the J! Archive

Back to the previous game 6793 it was funny to see Alec, Bart & Carol for an A-B-C left to right. I would guess cheezguyty could find other instances of that specific alphabetical line-up.

Re: Before and After: WoF or J?

Before & After appeared as a category first on Wheel in 1989, and on J! on 4/1/97 (the Pat Sajak-hosted episode), as has been mentioned here a bunch. Since then, however, it is apparently the most common recurring category type to appear on J! ("recurring category type" here refers to things like "...

As Jodie was being announced as the winner, her score display changed to $21,600, and that is what Alex said that her charity would be receiving.

Was there a week with only four celebrity games?

Season 15 had six more of these theme nights; the first two aired as lead-ins to ...

Sorry, I can see how my wording was ambiguous. The correct dates are February 14 to 25, 1994 (per many contemporary newspaper articles and the Archive's Collected Finals page).

All of the '94 Teen games in the Archive need to be moved back one week (the Prizes page has the wrong dates as well).
