Re: Tuesday, May 25, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I got Faulkner on a stone cold guess. "County" is the TOM, though it isn't obvious. It looks like the book in the clue is Intruder in the Dust, which isn't on my flashcards, even though just about everything else by Faulkner is. Wow, that is one stealthily hidden TOM. I went with Richard Wright, th...

Re: How Did Aaron Rodgers Do as Host?

He may have a lot of respect for the game, but I doubt he would be able to host the show and play as quarterback at the same time because it is possible that he has to play a big game on the day of taping, so Ken still holds the top spot for me as the new host. I think it is highly unlikely that th...

Re: Friday, February 19, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Nothing about KJ's last show? That surprised me a little. I figured we'd at least get a "That's all for me, you'll see Mike Richards on Monday." This surprised me also. I even played all the way through the credits expecting a parting quip. I wonder if Ken knew it was going to be his last show when...

Re: Monday, January 18, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

It's always fun when the correct response is a contestant's name such as happened in CELEBRITY NAMES IN COMMON. Ken has his own phraseology sometimes and I liked his, "Those are they" today. Yeah, I think someone(s) on the writing staff likes The Crown as that Lithgow clue had me at least know that...

Re: Ken Jennings as a Host Poll

I posted in another thread that he is doing better than I thought he would and I would not mind if he got the full time job. Having said that, on here, I voted that he's ok but I'd like to see what some others do. Right now, all we have to compare him to is Trebek. He's not that good, maybe no one ...

Re: Monday, January 11, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

It was so weird not Having Alex as the Host but i thought Ken did Fairly well. i thought he may have been reading the clue a little too quickly, but the contestants understood him and thats all that matters. This is where Ken's extensive experience moderating NAQT matches was made most clear; they ...

I cant watch Price or Wheel because of the Tegna Dispute. it sound like it may end as early as a few hours from now though.
Can confirm, TEGNA stations are back on the air.

That was my response as well, and I strongly suspect it was on Alex’s card as the desired one.

The remind-alike game was easy today with Lindsay, as from moment one of her speaking (coupled with her appearance) it was Beth Behrs as Gemma Johnson on CBS's The Neighborhood .

I confidently said CA for FJ, assuming that Hoover has a library at Stanford, maybe part of the Hoover Institution. But his library is in IA...Even if I'd thought of TX, I might have guessed GWB's wasn't open yet... :roll: Yeah I didn't realize it at the time as I went straight to Texas, but CA is ...

For some reason, I thought of "banana clip", but that didn't sound right, and I clammed. Apparently it's a women's hair clip or something? Never seen one in my life, but heard the phrase, and thought it might fit. Actually, you probably have if you have even a passing familiarity with LeVar Burton'...

I understood the wording of FJ perfectly, but still passed up El Salvador because El Salvador is NOT English . Its’ official name is the Republic of El Salvador, which makes both the listing, and subsequently the wording of the clue, dicey, IMO. I'm not following your logic. First of all it is list...

Am I seriously the first guy here to report getting this FJ! :shock: And it was an instaget, too Instaget for me too, though it probably doesn’t hurt that I’ve read almost all of the extended PJ universe books - I think they’re much more accessible to middle school/early YA readers than Harry Potte...

Re: Reruns to start May 4th

My guess is that they are postponing the Teachers Tournament to May 18-29, so the season can run until June 12. Hopefully, the Teachers Tournament will air at some point. I'm hoping it's not like when Wheel pulled two weeks because one promoted Carnival Cruise Lines and the other promoted Collette ...

Gal Gadot is definitely an NHOI for me.
Presumably you have not seen either any of the Fast and Furious films, or the more recent DC movies, in which she plays Wonder Woman.

Incidentally, as she is Israeli and not French, the T in her last name is not silent.

What was the TOM for "This Is Us" on Cast for $200? Those names are absolutely unfamiliar to me, and I saw nothing more specific in the clue.
Sterling K. Brown, who has won multiple awards for playing adult Randall, and is unquestionably the breakout member of the cast.

my prediction is for Ken to win tonight because as of last Friday, abc.com had regular programming on their schedule for Wednesday.

Has anyone noticed what time the new episode becomes available on Hulu?
Typically it is 5AM eastern time.
