Is he a Colts fan? I would have figured 49ers...

It's not a great day to be a Colts fan. (I'm neutral)
I had a dream that I was asleep and then I woke up and Jeopardy! was on.

On the opposite end of the spectrum, I had to enter my birthdate on my phone today. I had to scroll through starting at 2022 and going back to the 1950s. I felt like I was on a slot machine.

I Liked NBCs "The Wheel" The Host was Hilarious, the game was run, and the music was good. but the game did seem a little involved and while the Host was great, i Hate Todrick Hall with a Burning Passion and he pandered to him a lot and it was annoying.

NBC is either nuts or genius with this stunt of 10 shows on the weekdays (at inconsistent air times) Dec. 19 - 30.

The hour is the anything but filled with trivia questions. The questions about elections and the answers given by the contestants along with reasoning? :roll:

All the laughing for no legitimate reason? Ridiculous. If I I watch again it won't be in the assigned hour as I will have to exercise fast forward power that I did not bother with tonight for the debut.

Watched the original version on YouTube. Been looking forward to it for awhile. A lot of people will think it's junk. I don't care. I will always watch adaptations of UK quiz shows no matter what.

it bombed, getting only 1.2 million cause they never really advertised it. i think they just didnt care about it. kinda like apparently they dont treat Jeopardy and wheel the same for some reason.

Patricia Belcher has appeared in a lot of stuff. In the other thread when it was mentioned she was on J! in 1985 my first thought was picturing her in this ad:

A little birdie told me that Yogesh is going to be on the show next week. :shock:

Safe to say that it didn’t result from the audition that took place 28 months earlier, though.

That’s exciting to hear! I’m looking forward to the chance to watch a highly touted trivia person compete in the show.
