Re: What's in store for the 3 Jeopardy giants after GOAT?

The average casual viewer likely has NEVER (in their memory) seen him play, or Ken Jennings either for that matter. Both of them played just 10 months ago, so the average casual viewer has almost certainly seen them. You'd think, wouldn't you? But judging from social media, today's average casual v...

Re: What's in store for the 3 Jeopardy giants after GOAT?

Personally, enough already with the special tournaments. GOAT was wonderful. Let's bask in its beauty for a while. agreed...we've seen the end result how many times. that's not to say it wouldn't change, but we've beaten this horse to death for now, and we all know the Alex era will end. Wait until...

Re: Roger Craig's trivia triumph app

Just want to make sure I'm not missing something...

is it available for use yet, or is this still just a signup? I signed up a while ago, but haven't heard of available for use yet.

Re: 2020 Online Test announced - Jan 28, 29, 30

I'm still in the pool. Wish I could take the test for real. Ditto. In the pool until March. +1 but I hope I never need to take the online test again! Me too, but I'm losing faith in getting the call. Time is running out. Good luck. If you exit the pool in March, I'd advise you to take the test agai...

Re: 2020 Online Test announced - Jan 28, 29, 30

I'm still in the pool. Wish I could take the test for real. Why? Taking the test for real means maybe not getting randomly drawn to have an audition to put you in to the pool that gets you a shot at being on the show...I'd much rather have my current position of being in the pool than being out and...

Re: Goat January 7th online?

I'm able to watch ABC shows through on demand. I didn't know this until a week ago. I had forgotten to tape the special leading up to the GOAT tournament, but fortunately stumbled across it on on demand. The only drawback was that the fast forward option was disabled which meant that commercials we...

In part 1, Alex said they started writing before he finished reading the clue. Is this really possible? Does this mean contestants have more than 30 seconds to write their answers?

Re: J! in the Media

Ratings for the first two GOAT episodes are strong. One might even say awesome. From Variety today: "The audience for Jeopardy: Greatest of All Time was even greater on Night 2 than on Night 1. On Wednesday, Part 2 of the dream match between Ken Jennings, James Holzhauer and Brad Rutter averaged 14...

Re: ABC Plays Keepaway

The idea of letting millionaires play Who Wants to Be a Millionaire doesn't sit right with me. Like, if there should be one precondition for being a contestant, it should be not already being a millionaire . Perhaps “What Charity Wants a Million Dollars?” didn’t resonate with the producers as a pot...

I really would've expected Chris Harrison to come back with it though, and did not expect the celebrity editions to return. Chris has scheduling issues with his other commitments. Hence why taping in Las Vegas was in July and August (IIRC). well if he would just do what Seacrest does and send his c...

Re: ABC Plays Keepaway

I assume the "keepaway" comment has to do with the fact that ABC has to produce (or air?) an episode of Millionaire to retain the rights, correct? yes, this is what we learned from the Sony email hack. I don't remember the exact amount of time in between airdates for Disney to keep ownership in Nor...
