The "Rock and Roll Jeopardy" Report

Post by MinnesotaMyron »

I've been doing some digging into the history of Rock and Roll Jeopardy, and as soon I get it all organized (probably be a while), I'll post it here. 2 things worth mentioning at the top.

1. According to Wikipedia, R&RJ ran for 4 seasons and 100 episodes. It would sure be nice if it was 4 25-game seasons, wouldn't it? I have no idea though, especially since IMDB thinks Season 1 was 50 episodes. My hope is that I can hammer out some sort of episode guide, even just a list of what dates the original episodes aired. The Internet Archive has contestant lists from most of the first season, but from there it peters out, with only some celeb games getting announcements.

2. Greg Proops appeared as a civilian contestant on regular Jeopardy and then later as a celeb contestant on R&RJ. I think this is worth noting (with a footnote) in the Matt Weiner discussion. If I can get my hands on some old TV Guides, I might even be able to work out the original airdate, so we can add it to his page on the J-Archive. There must be some other people who appeared on both versions. (I think we'd know already if anyone had appeared on those 2 plus Sports J! as well.)

Stay tuned for more, including details of a running "gag" that bounced from R&RJ to the main show, once I get my notes sorted out.

After putting in a 1993 game (shortly) I will look for information I have about R&R J! I can't claim to have seen every episode but I must have some scoresheets somewhere.

This former trader's website (via the web archive) could help you out (you just have to wait about fifteen seconds for it to load).

You get to be hero of the day. I knew I had seen this years ago, but I couldn't find it. This is a huge help.

Finally found my binder with scoresheets. Flipping through it I can see I was not consistent with including dates and I have no recollection if I was watching fresh episodes or reruns. Along with the previous site posted it all should help you in some way.

Not sure if I listed them champ's spot to third spot or it's the opposite?

Thanks Mark. I know that Greg Proops played with Wayne Brady and a 3rd, non-Whose Line player, so it looks like he's not one you listed.

64 shows, out of a presumptive 100. That's also very helpful.

With R&R J! amongst the TV shows where I’ve always felt the first season is my favorite - I have every episode of the first season except for Rodney/Joy/Matt and Ross/Anna/Michael. And while I’ve had knowledge about those two eps for many years (yes, only by the means of the contestants’ names) I still never to this day have seen them - so I’d be interested in finding out the FJ scores for those two eps.
