Have they started changing the URL style each day to prevent more peeks into the future?

I wonder what the writers will think of to ask Messing about and Gad about.

NHO Gad, but Messing is a genuine star. I'm impressed.

If I had 50 cents for every math question I got right, I'd have $6.30 by now.

I'm late to the party in this thread, but I'm weighing in to say that Ginger Zee is a graduate of Valparaiso University, the fine school where both Russ Schumacher and I went to school! We're both rooting for her -- Valpo doesn't get a lot of notice outside of occasional NCAA basketball appearances.

I'm the opposite. I don't know who Messing is, but Josh Gad is awesome. He was in Book of Mormon and Frozen, among other things.

Her tag is Kids Week from 2011, so born in 1999 or 2000. Will & Grace was on from 1998 to 2006.

Alex Trebek will be on The Talk tomorrow the 24th, so I will guess he's there to promote the celebs on J! as well as help the ladies celebrate show #1000.

Debra Messing currently stars in The Mysteries of Laura and was the subject of the $1000 clue in THEIR TV ROLES THEN & NOW. That show is on in the fitness center when I exercise so I pre-called it when the category came up. Unfortunately, I got right into the game and wasn't trying to recall her name so when the clue came up, I utterly blanked.
Silver Screen Test, my movie trivia game show. Watch some of the episodes On-Demand.

During Trebek's appearance on The Talk he hosted games with the ladies and mentioned the upcoming celebs on J! including Josh Gad and Aaron Rodgers. Alex also mentioned after that would be the 7000th episode. He gave no other info about it, so it could have been a very general remark about a thousandth milestone or maybe he will say something on that show about it. Time will tell.

Last night's show was episodes 6990(7055 to them because of the episode numbering in the first season), ergo, The actual 7000th show will air on 5/8.

So this will only go on for one week? I'd prefer if instead they held a tournament with their 15 celebrities. I mean, why not? Winner gets $100,000 or so for charity. Sounds good to me.

Sounds familiar, but don't you mean $1,000,000?

Yes I remember that but how many took part in that tournament? Had to be at least twice as much, right?

I'm seeing this is a regular 15 person tournament. I think $100,000 or maybe $250K should be enough.
