Comments about the 8/23 show:
Spoiler
Show

6 people not knowing the sport with the Hall of Fame in Canton, Ohio? Yeah, I get it that sports can be a problem for game show contestants. What floored me was that with choices of 7, 30, or 90 a contestant on the winning team went with 90 for approximate number of days between full moons. :o People need to pay a little attention to things other than Kardashians, phones and Netflix.

Christmas won't be Christmas without "The Sorority Sisters" in the Bonus Round. ;)

The team who DID make the Bonus Round spelled Ukulele, Y-U-K-A-L-A-L-E, which would still be accepted during Final Jeopardy as it doesn't change the pronunciation.

What term for a type of men's physique is "A nice balance between a beer gut and working out"?

A. Pop Pecs B. Swole Papa C. Dad Bod

Team's Answers: A A C

In round three, a double miss in the number of states that border the Pacific ocean. Both teams said four, forgetting Hawaii. It is better than both teams saying three.

On the last question, "The Casino Crew" incorrectly identified the Flatiron Building as the Chrysler Building(Also 28 years off from the clue.) and joined "The Acrobats", "The Sorority Sisters", "The Blondetourage", "The Silver Foxes", and a few more teams who fell victim to the last question in round three this season.

Finally, Ben from "Elementary School Teachers" had no idea about the U. S. Bullion Depository. He used the pass and would have gone with Fort Ticonderoga instead of Fort Knox. Later when he had the Mount Olympus question he said "I am a teacher, this one counts." He got Olympus correct but also should have known Fort Knox.

How do you know it wasn't Alaska that was forgotten?

On these GSN shows I'm sure each winning team member gets the same amount to split the money won. That's fine for the $1,000 while sometimes when a team wins the jackpot, $8,000-$1,000-$1,000 seems more just.

In the classic children's song titled "The Muffin Man", where does the Muffin Man live?

The first team said "Cherry Lane" and even sang it with that incorrect lyric. The second team said "Tin Can" because it rhymed. :roll:

On an Analog clock, at which time would the hour and minute hands line up the closest?

A. 1:10 B. 5:25 C. 9:30

The question is pretty easy to work out as 1:10, the minute hand is on the two and the hour hand is only slightly past the one and in 5:25, the minute hand is on the five and the hour hand is less than half way towards the 6. Unfortunately, the three teammates did not think it through and all said 1:10. At least no one said 9:30.

Things only got worse later in the episode where the same team put down 480,000 as the number of minutes in a year.

Things got EVEN worse when the other team had 3600 as the number of minutes in a year. They even claimed to have seen Rent. :o :shock: :? :roll:

All of Lucario's things shared about the show ARE the reason to watch regularly as something like the examples happen each night.

That analog clock thing had me shaking my head since two of the players were not spring chickens so had to have seen a clock before a cell phone became the only way of knowing the time.

My partner already makes fun of me enough for yelling at the TV. I don't need to give him more ammunition. :lol:
