The writers send some kind of message about LeVar Burton not guest hosting when Bill Whitaker hosts.
The last Jeopardy! Round category of this game comes to mind.

Re: Rest of Season 37, Changes & Predictions for Season 38

I agree that a new set is probably out of the question until they're read to space the lecterns together again, and I don't see that happening in Season 38.

Re: Jeopardy! Interim Host Thread

I mean, I don't have exact dates of when the update was pushed to the official website, but I do remember that the website was updated shortly after Brayden's death to note Moulds was taking his place, and, like Sg, was confused when you posted that it was more recent news. You can find references t...

Multiple laughs in the game and another is courtesy of the CCer with "Whaling" instead of "Wailing". :lol:

Re: Tuesday, April 13, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Not sure what there is in the FJ! clue to avoid the coin flip unless you know the specific fact. The Wikipedia article doesn't even mention Huygens. If the clue called for you to name the weapon it would be another coin flip, since Orion traditionally has both sword and club. (Nebula is in sword.) M...

I don't remember the Munich Olympics at all, except maybe Mark Spitz.
Um, seriously? Nothing else?
Seriously. I was 6 years old. Everything else I learned about the '72 Olympics, I learned later on.
I wasn't born yet, so everything I know about Munich is from the Spielberg movie.

I would bet large sums of money that never has -- and never will -- happen.
I will gladly take your bet that it will never happen. Name your odds and send me your wager by PayPal.

Another guess is that they already booked Season 37 full of guest hosts but also want to shoehorn in the ToC.

Was there a precedent for "questioning" "answers"?

We all know the story of Julann Griffin first formulating the "answer in the form of a question" conceit, but I'm curious, was this a totally original twist, or were there any preexisting games (not necessarily game shows) in which the objective was to come up with a question that matched a given an...

The way Rodgers pronounced Borden, with the stress on the second syllable, as if to emphasize that an E was used in the name, followed immediately by announcing a misspelling, had me questioning what the actual surname spelling was--Bordin? Bordon? Bordan? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3-ppAobEGYU...

Re: Jeopardy! Interim Host Thread

I remembered Burton's attempt to Kickstart a Reading Rainbow TV show revival and wondered whatever came of it, but I hadn't heard about the lawsuit. WNED-Buffalo seems to have been within its rights on some things and well beyond on others, like its untenable attempt to assert some sort of intellect...

Unfortunately I was spoiled on the FJ! response by a too-quick click in the daily thread, so I won't know how I would have fared, but I think my chances at arriving at the right response would have been poor. The category name would have led me to an outlaw, like Bonnie Parker (born 1910, it turns o...

The question is why he hasn't even gotten a guest-hosting slot.
