Fortunately, all of the FJs either happened make sense with a reasonable guess or to fall into the random of assortment of things that I know for some reason without really knowing I know them.

Have seen "This Week" very occasionally and had a successful 1-in-7 WAG with "Dopey."

I know that William Makepeace Thackery wrote "Vanity Fair." That's the ONLY think I know about it. And the only thing I know about Thackery. Which is probably good enough to answer many Jeopardy clues about either. But not this one.
I'm not the defending Jeopardy! champion. But I have played one on TV.

60% is not Gigi Grazer or Me and Earl and the Dying Girl bad, but still IMO pitiful for a top box.

"It's the word before 'Brothers'" on Monday, Lebanon on Thursday (because I couldn't get away from the Arabian peninsula).

George Stephanopoulos's show is generically titled and on at a time I don't watch TV; Becky whatsername was a "Wow, no way I'm getting this" clue as I read it.

Didn't think of the pirate angle. Maybe I was distracted by the stage fright bit. Let's say I was.

Wasn't sure enough about the dwarf to risk a buzz. Hi ho.

Argh! I had Becky Thatcher instead of Becky Sharp. Would just plain ol' Becky be accepted?

NHO Zapruder. Total blindspot for me :oops:

For the parrot, I missed the pirate connection but got to Florida via the tropics. Ended up with Miami Dolphins just to put something down

I liked the day where Alex had fun with the 2 players who crossed out their answers only to write the same thing

The only thing to laugh at for all of the MNF telecast was the clothing credit graphic after the game was over.
