Re: Monday, June 14, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

As a regular watcher of the Today show, I was pleasantly surprised by Savannah’s hosting yesterday. IMO she comes across less polished on her daytime gig, but live TV is more difficult than hosting a game show that you have time to prepare for, and where you can reshoot things that go wrong. However...

I think the category was the actual answers to the first crossword puzzle, so I don’t think alternatives would be acceptable.

+1 lunch break. Even if I had thought of coffee break, I probably would have discounted it as I didn't think it would be something in a union contract. Also, never heard of buffalo plaid. I’ve heard of buffalo plaid, but never connected it with Christmas particularly, so I was lost on this one. I t...

If the FJ clue had begun with “Ironically”, I might have gotten this. Otherwise I was flailing trying to come up with an arts oriented network and had nothing.

Re: How Did Buzzy Cohen Do as Host?

I rate Buzzy and Ken about equal and ahead of everyone else. Each has different strengths. I think Ken has more gravitas and wit and a better interviewer. Buzzy has more energy and youth appeal. I’m not sure Buzzy has a better voice than Ken though. I think I’d pick Ken over Buzzy, but I can see why...

I'm surprised that Veronica got negged for the palatine clue. The archive has her saying "palantine" but I can't hear an extra "n". I heard it pronounced with "teen" instead of "tine" which I would have thought was acceptable. I think she said "Levi" instead of "Levi's" which I would have thought w...

Re: Friday, May 21, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Lear and the daughters is the extent of my Shakespeare knowledge I had at the ready for that work. That's my extent, too. Maybe one of these day 1809 will click for me. I just guessed 'Regan' to say something. I worked off “Edgar sounds like it could be a Lear character, Nathaniel (Hawthorne) does ...

Re: How Did Bill Whitaker Do as Host?

I thought he was OK. I gave him a seven. I agree his flaw was being too low key and flat. Aaron Rodgers was a bit low key too, but was able to insert some humor during his stint.

Re: How Did Anderson Cooper Do as Host

I’d rate Cooper a bit behind Ken and a bit ahead of Aaron. I though his first few games were a breath of fresh air compared to Aaron’s more snoozy pace, but I thought by the second week a note of blandness crept in, as if he could have been announcing anything. I think it’s a case of professional an...

I skipped any consideration of Hawaii since it wasn’t a state in 1947 and therefore unlikely to have a National Park at that time. Went directly to Florida and the Everglades.
