That Final didn't include '31 for some reason. I just entered a clue about '31 for show #6.

Scored as an R in your heart, a W on the weekly poll.

Re: Celebrity Jeopardy! Sunday, October 2, 2022 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I may have to pull this up on Hulu just to see what they said about Austin... There was a very confusing (bottom-row, but first-selected) clue asking for the name of a drink. I suppose if you're a bartender or a barfly who is a Sinatra fan you will have known the drink. (Or if you're a teetotaler l...

Re: Celebrity Jeopardy! Sunday, October 2, 2022 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Still watching. I'm getting a huge kick out of Reggie's display of accents, though I can see how others could find it annoyingly peacocky. Funny that he didn't get to use the German accent on the Ahhnuld clue. But so disappointed that Mayim did not know to immediately accept "Tour Eiffel".

Re: Friday, September 30, 2022 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I know five wins secures the TOC but they kinda went out of their way to make sure all of the 4-day winners made the field for 2022. I think David should feel at least somewhat secure in his position. I'm sure I've said this before recently but for some time now the official website has strongly im...

Re: FJs for the 9/26/22 week

With the relevant (requested) poll option at 42% after 48 votes, I don't feel bad at all not knowing South American river geography (while still managing to suss out the correct response). It looks like only 1/3 of those who got that Final right had heard of the rivers before.

Re: Thursday, September 29, 2022 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Can we talk about the increase of table tennis balls from 38 mm to 40 mm in 2000 and the change of material from celluloid to plastic in 2014? You can't even buy the (obviously superior) 38 mm celluloid balls any more. (There are a few websites which purport to sell them but if you look closer you w...

Re: Set your VCRs: Ken Jennings on Call Me Kat tonight!

Forget the fact that he was ordering and imbibing spirited beverages--he gave back a glass from which he had taken all of one sip! I just can't see Ken as being so profligate!

Re: Set your VCRs: Ken Jennings on Call Me Kat tonight!

They've talked about it on his podcast fairly recently. My recollection is that he may have had a few accidental sips of something he was told was virgin over the course of his lifetime, but other than those rare and unwanted occasions, he's still in the teetotalers' club. I didn't see the Kat episo...

Re: Celebrity Jeopardy! Sunday, September 25, 2022 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

That one's debatable but wouldn't Ego Nwodim be expected to have an advantage in a category on Dionne Warwick, And Simu would be "expected" to know Mindy Kaling's books, having been honored alongside Mindy Kaling, but as Andy Richter pointed out during the game, he was not switching over ...

Re: Tuesday, September 27, 2022 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

After solving this Final I wondered if it could be solved just by knowing the two highest-population countries, but that strategy would not work. Nigeria (219 million), Ethiopia (124 million) DRC (96 million), and Tanzania (63 million) all have more people than the second of the two solution countri...

Monday September 26 is up. They also revamped the whole page so that you can now contestant-search and date-filter.

EDIT: It's more than that. They finally coded it so that the box scores are HTML-generated. No more images to easily download.

Re: Celebrity Jeopardy! Sunday, September 25, 2022 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Triple J! was a good idea. I'm with you on that. I was pleasantly surprised by the relative lack of fluff in the game. I don't mind a little more banter than the average game in celebrity matches. I like to let the celebs shine (and whine) a bit. But I was concerned that the hour runtime might be f...

Re: Celebrity Jeopardy! Sunday, September 25, 2022 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

The score box below the TJ board is off center. Not a major problem, figured it was one of those weird things that resulted out of the extra round. I'm still trying to figure that out. According to Chrome developer mode on a desktop, which can emulate a mobile device, it's fixed, but I can clearly ...

Re: Celebrity Jeopardy! Sunday, September 25, 2022 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

In the archive, I noticed this game was listed under both Season 39 and Celebrity primetime. It doesn’t need to be under Season 39. Thanks, fixed. This was sort of a major change to the Archive that affected (or will affect, once I get around to it) just about every script, even scripts I wasn't ex...

Re: Celebrity Jeopardy! Sunday, September 25, 2022 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Mayim wasn't kidding when she remarked to Simu that tweets were important in their industry (to which he quickly agreed). Simu famously tweeted himself into a superhero all the way back in 2014. https://twitter.com/SimuLiu/status/489767285154803712?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%...
