Did Mayim have some happy juice before the game? She seemed a little too giddy and amused by too many of the clues today.
I noticed this too and must admit I found it a bit annoying.

The excitement of the bsck-and-forth partially offset the fact that it wasn’t the best display of J! acumen tonight. I wonder if anyone was helped to the FJ! answer by thinking of the meaning of the word tribunal.

That's my girl. She's likely to become even more quirky and wacky as she gets more comfortable, so buckle up, everybody.

Some clues that I missed that I want to get next time are towel (terry cloth)...
That one might not be pinned strongly enough. I associate 'terry cloth' more with robes at least (and is what I negged with). Google shopping also hits clothing and straight fabric (e.g., JoAnn's) more than bath towels when searching terrycloth.
Unless Ikea sells Flodalen robes, the clue was plenty pinned. ("Pinning" refers to limiting a clue to one correct response, not to hints.)
I meant that Matt's flash card might not be pinned well enough, not the clue.

Mayim has been bubbly, but I think it injects some needed life into the show without being distracting. And unlike with many of the other guest hosts, she comes across to me as having a convincing grasp of the material.

Nice FJ clue. I had briefly thought of Sentinel but couldn't pin it to the cities. San Diego's current major paper is the Union-Tribune, and Greeley's New-York Tribune does not survive in any current iteration, but a later version makes me think of one of my favorite movies:

How does Patricia Franchini have a perfect American accent when shouting "New York Herald Tribune" but not know what a horoscope is?

If you want some depressing trivia, read the last paragraph of the lead of Jean Seberg's Wikipedia page.

I found it extremely annoying. So much so that for me it DQs her from a permanent gig. I gave her a pass during the "I'D LIKE TO BUY" category but she kept it up after that.

Regarding this clue: This Nirvana song shares its name with an element used in medications for bipolar disorder

I got this clue right because, even before MP3 players, I had a copy of the song on my TI graphing calculator. Somebody had written a program for the calculator that allowed it to play a reasonable facsimile of music when you plugged headphones into the data transfer port. The song took up almost the whole memory of the calculator and the lyrics were barely decipherable.
That sounds amazing. I never knew that was possible. could you clip it sometime? :D

Didn't get Tribune. oh well. I wasn't around for the NY Tribune.

European History was hilarious, to say the least. No grab on Alexander II the Liberator from 1861

She kept visualizing squished bus face and couldn't recompose. At least it didn't involve another goat dying from Quikrete.

My high school math teacher personally deleted my baseball game off my calculator so I can only imagine how he would have reacted had I played one of these files in class.
Never been on J!, but once won a knockoff version that aired on local access TV.

I had Herald. Might have done better if I hadn’t watched after working an 11 hour shift overnight.

Satellite radio's grunge channel is also called Lithium.

Got to the FJ solve early, then doubled back to talk myself out of Sentinel, then went back to the solve. Choppy game with seven wrongs for Lydia, but she was close to a tortoise and the hare potential win if the other two had been tied going into Final. Didn't pan out that way and the solves made it moot, but looked possible late.

From this show I learned how Robert Henri pronounced his name (Hen-rye). Kudos to MB or the staff for getting it right.

Tribune was instaget.

Here is a very incomplete list of cities that had Tribune newspapers:
New York
Chicago
Minneapolis
Oakland
Winnipeg
Saskatoon
Tulsa
Los Angeles (Lou Grant was editor)
San Diego
Salt Lake
