1 QF and 1 group hug.

Matthew & Suresh not knowing what to do with Shirley Jones in the TV COMEDY category does not surprise me. Emily, I would have thought, could handle that kind of fun stuff.

Yup it's the ToC as my scoresheet was near comatose in the DJ! round.

The stats line for this game is not pretty with too many negs and TS clues. Nice work by Emily to cruise to the win after Suresh lost it all on DD1.

The FJ! clue had me go on a detour to Iowa and Eulalie Shinn to guess an author. The pen name looked odd enough that I sniffed out an anagram, not that I knew his first name.

As always, plenty of stuff to welcome to the Jeopardy Canon in a ToC. No time to check them all, but I will welcome Helen Roper from Three's Company and the Tunisian chili paste harissa, both of which have previously been mentioned in clues but appear as answer lines for the first time today.

If that were a LL question, maybe I can study it enough to come up with Rabelais. My guess was Nostradamus.

Ditto this. I forgot how old Rabelais was.
I'm smart and I want respect.

I'm not so great with anagrams. But is there another known French author of fiction from so long ago? Even Molière and Racine are in the next century...

58 R (Didn't get the bottom two in TV Comedy. No Michael J. Fox in clue, failed to get it. Possibly would have gotten Mrs. Roper at another time.)
DD: 3/3
FJ: :mrgreen:

I've heard the Alcofribas Nasier fact before, in the sense that that name didn't seem completely alien to me, and I was pretty sure it must be an anagram ("Alcofribas" gives off "Marvolo" vibes), but 16th century French authors isn't a slam-dunk Pavlov for me and I blanked. I was trying to think of the fairy tale guy (Charles Perrault, who was too late but not as late as Voltaire and Rostand, whom I also thought of).
