Re: WWTBAM returns to primetime

Tomorrow's April 6th is a look back at the show and includes appearances from Regis and Meredith. It should be like the J! thing that aired before the GOAT. Wednesday the 8th is the first episode with celebs playing. No audience other than one celeb friend for a lifeline. In place of the ATA lifelin...

Done except for cleaning up whatever the OCR did to me http://www.j-archive.com/showgame.php?game_id=6593 Myron: I'm surprised I don't do the MarkBarrett instead of theFJguy error more often.

In a category of CLASSIC AMERICAN NOVELS I will always have Huck on the short list of precalls. 1926 (20th century) only came up after the clue was revealed. :)
