There was a much shorter clip from a Sacramento news station I believe late last week that I saw that also showed a Zoom audition.

Found this thread on page 2, so have to do something about that: https://twitter.com/Jeopardy

That's a lot of mail, new graphic, and Alex wouldn't be there suited up unless...

And Alex is clean shaven, unlike his From the Vault pieces

I just noticed that Jeopardy! has a new set of episodes on Hulu:
2014 Teen Tournament (was on Netflix in spring 2019)
2016 College Championship (currently on Netflix)
2016 Teachers Tournament (Week 2 was on Netflix in fall 2019)
Seth Wilson's entire run (was on Netflix in spring 2020)
Cindy Stowell's entire run (was on Netflix in spring 2020)
2018 College Championship

I happened upon this article indicating that 1996 Olympic Games tournament winner Ulf Jensen won Sweden's version of Who Wants to Be a Millionaire last December. He was only the 12th winner.

Does anyone have any information about Ulf's pre-1996 winnings?

People.com has an article about the new season of Jeopardy. What got my attention is that the author thinks it's an ABC show, and not syndicated by Sony and that it's on at 7PM EST.

Was there anything interesting in the article? It is behind a paywall.

Technically, it's produced by Sony, but it's syndicated by CBS.

Or perhaps he’s just manstrating. :lol:

Seriously though, it’s 7 episodes and 2 perceived errors. 7 episodes. We’ve seen issues before and not jumped to conclusions. It’s not fair or logical to draw any conclusion at this time.

If the two incidents had happened six months apart instead of six days apart nobody bats an eye.

One of the complaints has merit and the other has none.

black-ish had players socially distanced when they played "Democracy Jeopardy!" as part of the "Election Special" 10/4 episodes.

A portion of a game of Jeopardy! is shown in the trailer for the new Ryan Reynolds movie Free Guy.
Not many people can say they've lost four times on Jeopardy!.

I watched trailer 3 and did not see any J! Almost ready to watch it again to see if I missed it, YT went right into trailer 2 and that one has the J! portion. It does not look like it's from a real show and instead looks like it was filmed separately for the movie?

As for the movie itself? It looks like the right guy is the lead and however high the budget is, I believe it.

You can barely see it underneath the D, but the title was actually Democracy *in* Jeopardy!. It was no doubt informative for many viewers, but alas, Andre read questions and the contestants answered, so not much of a parody... :cry: :geek:
