Re: Fun with GSN's "Master Minds"

In Wednesday's game, Ken made a mistake in one of his "fun facts" comments. He said that the Germans used to refer to B flat as H; in fact, they used to refer to B flat as B and B natural as H. (I'm not sure the degree to which this is still practiced, but Ken definitely got it backwards.) I think ...

Re: Fourth Podium Poll for 1/21/2021

Saving TPH the typing -- Yes, the "Tales From" question was way, way undervalued at $400. It's polling 6%. I don't know what they were thinking on that one. Funny thing is, I went into Amazon yesterday to watch the most recent episode of The Expanse and guess what show was sitting two rows down ......

Sara Haines's pronunciation of Anosmia was just awful. :?
I thought it was kind of pretty. Wrong, not helpful, but it sounded nice...And it didn't seem to faze the player. (For those who didn't watch, pronounced as if it were Italian or Spanish, with accent on the penultimate syllable.)

I dunked on Ken the other day for mispronouncing a rather minor clue, Bemidji. Today he made a serious mispronunciation of err. Alex would have never done that. Can you tell me how these two pronunciations differ, or did you err? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CAIGw4ESRE8 Thanks, seaborgium! Evide...

This is me trying my best to keep myself from posting a long rant, but here I go: To expect the participants of Jeopardy! , viewers and contestants alike, to be able to come up a majority of the correct responses to the A STREAM OF TV category is a joke. There were 5 clues today about programs on 4...

I didn't think Reno was the capital of NV. Worse. I couldn't remember it at all.

Re: Jeopardy! Interim Host Thread

It's worth pointing out that Katie Couric on Bill Maher referred to "the cult of Trump," so I think she was referring to the percentage who do believe "that nonsense."

Also, I swear that I've heard "poinsettia" pronounced incorrectly more often than correctly. Absolutely. The other one like this that bugs me is "nuptial." For some reason most people pronounce it like it ends -ual rather than -ial. Which pronunciation do you think is incorrect? Because it takes se...

I don't think Smith & Wollensky was even a fair question. This is a chain with half a dozen restaurants in rich people venues. Not the same as asking about Procter & Gamble. They let anybody walk down Third Avenue in NYC. I don't know if a movie has ever featured it, but I've passed it and noticed ...

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

I thought Jennifer might get negged for "deltoids", but Ken never said specifically that the response had to start and end with "d". If he had, I hope the clue wouldn't have called for a plural, as this one did. I realize "jewelry" would have given it away, but "luxury" is vague, so my first though...
