Re: What ought to happen next?

honestly, should probably do a couple weeks of reruns, syndication be damned. If they're going to do reruns, they really need to insert some reruns (Heck, there's a Teachers Tournament from last season that hasn't been rerun yet--throw in a "taped before COVID-19" disclaimer if need be) before Alex...

Re: Local station contact list

Can we confirm that Jeopardy! is actually planning on broadcasting the last show on December 25 and not putting some reruns in to take the show out of a majorly pre-empted window before we start contacting affiliates?

CBS has election coverage on at 1pm
Mark will usually post something by now if the station he catches hasn't switched over (as would the Reddit recapper).

Re: Wednesday, November 4, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Devin got Final Jeopardy correct, my Antarctic friend. Yes he did. I said as much, so I'm not sure why you're pointing that out. Maybe I'm missing something? Here's what I said: But get [DD3] RIGHT and he [Keoni] can win the game even if he misses FJ and Devin gets it right. Since that's exactly wh...

Re: Friday, October 30, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

She should have been negged on that, and that had a huge effect on the rest of the game. The very next question she chose after she should have been ruled incorrect was the DD where she won $5000. If she wasn’t wrongly given credit, she likely doesn’t get the DD and the rest of game could play out ...

Was 80% sure it was "red scare" with the other 20% going to "red menace". I imagine the clue was pinned to the accepted response.

Re: Tuesday, October 6, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

The United States, commonly called "America" and particularly by the denizens of the country in which this particular game show is set, is about 1.3 times the area of the accepted response country. I put down the accepted response but this was not a great clue. Just asking for trouble, IMHO. For an...

Re: Monday, September 28, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I felt there was an judging error made today. A clue's correct response should have been "Colorado State". Contestant said "Colorado", and Alex says correct and keeps going. At the time, I was surprised they accepted that, since I knew Colorado State was correct. Later, the judges (eg, Alex) correc...

Played FJ off "Clue of the Day." Had to think for a few seconds to come up with tennis and golf, and thought golf much more likely for a 50+ participant to still be active. Spaced out on Mickelson and flipped a mental coin between Vijay Singh and Ernie Els. Know nothing about their ages, but I know...

Andy seemed to have some confusion (based on the comments). It seems that he thought "India" was the expected response at first? And then the first commenter said (paraphrasing) "They should have accepted Thailand"? Yes, because my Internet searching this morning brought up the India book. Seeing i...

Did U.S.-India relations start in 1833?
"Beginning in 1833" does not necessarily mean that relations had to start in 1833; that could be read to mean that the scope of the book started then.

Re: Season 37 changes and predictions

So since they're only picking Californians for now, I imagine that however long a wait exists for us out-of-staters in the pool will not count against the 18 months either? I am in the same boat (pun intended) as you. I imagine they will deplete the out of town pool eventually, probably not at the ...

If this is how Mike Richards thinks Jeopardy! should be judged, I think he's going to see that a significant part of the viewership is going to vehemently disagree with him.

Re: Jeopardy Season 37 Profiled on TheRinger.com

Not all of those 80 contestants may be blocked from coming now, some might be close enough to tape now. Hell--I'll drive the 2700 miles to the studio, no problem. You keep saying this, but it's a matter of optics. Jeopardy! is going to come under a lot of public fire if contestants start coming in ...
