They won't ask about this, but the town of F***ing, Austria is now Fugging, Austria (due, primarily, to rampant sign theft and other general idiot tourist behavior)
At least we've still got Dildo, Nova Scotia!

Re: Jeopardy! Interim Host Thread

I don’t think anyone doubts that in September we’ll see new permanent host with a new set. But anyone else wondering if they raise the dollar amounts? The show doesn’t need to, but this would be a good time to do it, and the budget is certainly there as I wouldn’t expect the new host to get as much ...

Re: Ken Jennings as a Host Poll

I think he's doing OK, but still want to see what the other guest hosts are like - well I do think he's doing OK, but not great. I also don't think some of the other guest hosts are going to be all that great either, and the only one I'm really interested in seeing is Bill Whitaker. I'm not impresse...

Re: Jeopardy! Interim Host Thread

I will renew my begging for a new host who has no connection to or interest in politics. I'd also be willing to bet, because Jeopardy! is all about demonstrating your knowledge of facts, that they're at bare minimum not Republicans -- considering the GOP has no concept of that sorta thing. Keep tal...

I know how this works. (I recently had to explain to someone that Wheel and Jeopardy! tape neither simultaneously nor live.)

how does a show not tape live? :lol:

Re: Jeopardy! Interim Host Thread

Whittaker is 69 years old. I certainly don’t see him as a serious candidate for permanent host. Alex was 80...so is 11 years not enough? Alex was 80 after he'd hosted for 37 years. I wish Whittaker good health & a long life, but he won't be hosting anywhere near that long. Given that the search is ...

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

Ken was reading fast, and while that was strange after being used to Alex, it wasn't bad. I know Tanay's background, I'm guessing he was going for anticipation buzzing in at the start instead of reacting to the light. He caught on quick though, and had the result I was expecting to see. He'll be a g...

I'd say it's just a matter of availability. You have to seek out Bye Bye Birdie. The Accountant is a recent mass market product.
Not much of a seek, available for rental on both YouTube and Amazon.

Re: Jeopardy! Interim Host Thread

I don’t know all the S&P rules but Ken hosting practice games while still a player is a little weird. Maybe not crossing a line but getting close to it. Hadn't heard that story; hope it may an urban legend. I think "little weird" may be an understatement, "a lot weird" more closely matches my react...

Re: Friday, January 8, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Shoot... I know Alex wanted to leave a final 30 second message on his last episode, and I wish he was able to do so. The montage at the end was very nice nonetheless. I know he said it, but I like it better this way...he kept doing exactly what he loved doing right to the end. I've been wondering i...

Re: 2020 in review and what's in store for 2021

Also to consider is how not everyone that is good enough to pass the test, and lucky enough to get randomly drawn to audition, will have an interview that makes the contestant coordinators feel they will be good on TV. I used to interview horribly, looking back I can easily see why I wasn't picked ...

On another note, production will resume on January 11th. We know the show opened to contestants from the rest of the US in December, but with whatever rules are in place...maybe the show will put up those velvet ropes again? Are you saying the first tapings of 2021 are on January 11? From what I’ve...

I think that's a pretty heady allegation that I'd just as soon not be part of discussing in a public forum. If it's all the same to you, I'll just go on naively assuming we all compete on equal footing. Thanks. Based on my audition in 2017, women and minority candidates definitely measured up in ab...
