Ate plenty of the "Hungry Man" chicken dinners, not because they were cheap, easy, or lowbrow, but because they were GOOD. You must use conventional oven, microwave version was crap.
The Box of Glory was not to be, if you give me a list of 3 female names I'd have a 33% 10% chance.
Could not number the amendment cold, but would have coin flipped 16 and 17. ONE THIRD of revenue from liquor tax? We couldn't have passed the 18th (prohibition) without this one, lol... Well done, writers.
Started in Sheffield on the population TOM, then moved to Birmingham from geographic knowledge, only worrying about Nottingham and York (Old York?) but easily dismissing it.
The Linnaeus clue might as well have been "He was the father of Taxonomy". Pure YEKIOYD.

Ended 2019 on a nine-game FJ streak and immediately missed the Jan 1 clue. Recognized her after the fact but wouldn't have gotten it with 30 minutes instead of 30 seconds.
Another Manchester instead of Birmingham here. Very familiar with the fight song but barely familiar with Platten, and I don't think I've ever heard of Charlie Puth.
Got income tax, but it would have been a coin toss between 16th and 17 amendment.
I'm not the defending Jeopardy! champion. But I have played one on TV.
Butterball on Tuesday, knowing it was probably wrong
Manchester instead of Birmingham
I don't believe I've ever had a Swanson dinner, but I have heard the name
Know of Puth, Mo'Nique and Linnaeus, but not Platten
