TPH on WoF 12/8/17 discussion [SPOILERS]

Was thinking there should be a dedicated thread on this. If mods feel otherwise move it to the education thread I suppose.

I would like to watch before 7:30 PT tomorrow night if possible when it airs for me locally. Can anyone post a couple of CBS affiliates that air the show on the earlier side of things in the afternoon, please? Thank you.

I know the category was Authors but WLT the bonus puzzle answer of “R.L. Stine”??

It could have been literally any author!!

Good retroactive luck Bobby - I’ll be rooting for you from NYC!

Watched Wheel tonight and I was pleased to remember that tomorrow is the night. I'll be watching intently.

Best of luck to my fellow country music fan, TPH!

Thanks for posting this. I should have marked it on the callendar back along but did not.
We passively watch Wheel about 75% of the time in our household but I will make it a point to watch tomorrow.

My DVD should be grinding tomorrow. I'm spoiling all the J! shows I'm taping by reading the board. I'll really have to stay CLAM if I see Kyle at Tuesday's taping!

Good retro luck, TPH/Bobby. I never watched the show because the action was too slow, but I have found a lot of people are fans of WOF and think J! makes them feel dumb.

Thanks to the OP for starting this thread, albeit just in the nick of time.

It's when you don't get anything right on a LearnedLeague match day, but you win by forfeit. Usually it's spelled W000F though.

I have to work tonight, and my DVR isn't cooperating when I ask it to record stuff. Can someone post a link for the show somewhere?

I may be pretty darned good at trivia, but I'm still terrible at Wheel of Fortune. At least compared to the really great players.

Thanks to a hot tip ;) I've seen the show as well. The spoiler is about the first round puzzle after the toss-ups only.

Bobby [with control of the wheel]: One more.

He meant it. Applause and cheering from me. Loved it.
