Setting and Ring were instant 0/5s for me. Why should I care about Harry's marriage?

Also went 0/5 on Emerald. I knew Emerald City and Green Lantern, but blanked on both.

French Revolution was definitely 0/5 for me.

Also blanked on Gore, Rosa Parks, and Upton Sinclair.

Ran New Words.

Old Dominion and Blake Shelton? The writers are pandering to me again. Now do clues on Undertale, Night in the Woods, Sturgill Simpson, stroopwafel, Anthrocon, and SCP Foundation.

No guess on FJ!

What a game. Curious: is Bif's 24k competitive for highest second-place score going into final? (In regular season, maybe?)

There have been some very fun contestants lately who won't quite make the TOC but who are clearly TOC-caliber. Sorry Bif - we enjoyed watching you!

I almost WAGged Desperate Housewives because it was the only "big" ABC show I could think of that fit. The Bachelor wouldn't have been a bad guess on my part either.

More like, why are you digging up stuff I've tweeted for no valid reason? My favorite Alabama song has nothing to do with this forum.

At least I said that I knew them, I just had a brainfart and couldn't recall them in time. Surely that's a far lesser offense than NHOI'ing the same fact for the 200th time? Even people like Stefan have blanked on basics before.

Also, I fail to see how a band's biggest #1 hit is "obscure".

Yes I do. He was my editor when I wrote for Roughstock. I got to work with him when they got a table at CMA Music Fest in 2010.

Cable and pay-tv shows are bad enough, but I can't even get a network TV final. :(

The gameplay was obvious - Bif just couldn't take that fourth card to hit his 16 against the dealer's face card. The right player won, and let's not make bones about it he WON! He outplayed him except for two lucky breaks by Bif which he didn't convert and instead just pumped up the payday. I'm glad we get to see how good Eric can do.

I wonder if the camera will pan the audience and show those young college kids in the front two rows tomorrow? After all, they are just there for "today's" taping.

I surrendered on the FJ, but decided if I had to write something down it would be Greys' Anatomy even though I assumed it died 5 years ago. I have no idea what is on weeknight TV except a couple of sitcoms and a bunch of fake reality shows. I don't know if those CSI shows are still on, or the Real Housewives of ___.
