Re: Sony Reportedly Searching For Alex's Replacement

Why are people saying a comedian wouldn't work for a host? They pretty consistently outperform all other occupations on Celebrity Jeopardy! Obviously the show can't be purely a vehicle for stand up comedy, but some witty quips now and then could work well. Someone like Ben Bailey formerly of Cash Ca...

Re: April promo with spoilers (kind of minor, kind of major)

To be fair, without the show's own promo putting people on the trail, there is a good chance the site would have gone unnoticed. Enough people start on the Google trail on Monday morning when the contestant info hits the website that someone would have found the site on the morning of April 1. Tech...

Re: April promo with spoilers (kind of minor, kind of major)

If the site was created by him or with his knowledge / authorization, I have a hard time comprehending how someone as smart as him would have put up (or allowed to be put up) a spoiler-laden website that blatantly flouted his NDA. OTOH, could he have been so naive as to think that if he just create...

I noticed someone on youtube that had an account with all of February's episodes up had all their videos deleted. I will miss the reddit guy, I just wonder what took Sony so long.
That dumbass reporter who wrote the Medium article linked upthread probably forced their hand.

isn't that some sort of breach of agreement when playing on jeopardy?
I suppose it depends on who made it and how they acquired their information. I don't know the answer to either of these.

Re: reddit jeopardy done?

I can’t get more than lical PBS and a crappy local independent station with an antenna. Cable was invented just to sell television sets where I live. Unless you live waaay out in the boonies, if you put a good amplified antenna in a relatively unobstructed location, you can probably get at least th...

Re: $0 FJ Wager Poll

I actually think about this scenario a lot. It's kind of my dream to have a runaway and bet nothing. If I made a $0 wager but knew the correct response, I would try to make a joke that was an allusion to the correct response. For example, I knew the Texas Rangers FJ a few weeks ago, but had I been o...

Re: The crisis in TDs

I participated (initially under a different account) in nearly every single TD from roughly the end of 2015 to a few months ago when I stopped frequenting this board multiple times per week. Now I usually just stop by once a week to see the FJ poll. For me it was simple a matter of getting trivia f...
