(and the season has been taping for ~two months, probably seven-eight weeks of gameplay), it seems doubtful that this is a streak of Jennings-like proportions. Doesn't exclude it from being a healthy streak, though
You missed where Morbeedo said that the episodes he was at will be airing the week of December 18.

(Remember, the show was worried about a possible WGA strike that threatened to stretch into the fall, so before they went on taping hiatus last spring, they put the first four weeks of Season 34 into the can back in April. Thus, they have 14 weeks of Season 34 regular play taped already.)
Ah that's right.. I remember reading on your site about the strike in the spring and I guess that just slipped my mind. I suppose, then, that could leave the door open for a month-long reign with the extra taping already done. Thank you for correcting me, Andy.

Just watched the first episode of the new season. Interesting to see the contestants come out from behind the podiums for the end of game chat with Alex, as usual. I'm curious to see if/when this changes, because I'm sure this didn't happen for any of the 3 games I watched last week. And none of the players had a mobility issue.

My guess would be October 9. (That was the first taping after the summer break.)

There were at least three tapings well in advance of the season start — two in April (weeks 1-4) and one in July (probably weeks 5-6). Now the wait for those episodes to air, and their secrets to be revealed, is finally ending.
