We welcome Ross Martin to the J-Canon as a correct response. Can Mark name his most famous TV role? I couldn't.
Loved that show as a kid.

His museum (such as it is) is in a mall in Fargo. I think North Dakota claims him as one of their own.
I used to see Maris Distribution trucks driving Bud around when I was going to UF. Took me a year or two to find out that he was the owner (and later his sons).

I did also get Lawrence Welk. How many other famous people are from North Dakota? Roger Maris?

Roger Maris is from Hibbing, Minnesota.
He spent much of his early years in Fargo, though, so maybe that's what he was thinking about.

Well, I liked that FJ and it's probably because I got it right. :D I really think they were shooting for us to think of someone in the royal family who's not a Windsor by blood. I knew Philip was born in Greece, so figured that means he's got less British blood than the other royals who married in,...

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.

I don't understand Ken betting 0 in a wheelhouse category (Shakespeare). It was no secret what James was going to bet.
Why should Ken bet? He couldn't catch James. Bet zero and hope he gets it wrong.

While I think people may refer to "penalty minutes" as "penalties", that's definitely too informal. Isn't Alex Saved from checking the "dunce box" in FJ! by today's significantly easier clue.

Not too many to remember: goalie, center, defenseman, wing (left and right).

BTW, do we know for sure that the official rules treat the game 2 negatives the same way as game 1 negatives? I don't think it would have ever occurred to me to question this, but your answer is right in the very game this thread covers. Brad's -3600 was changed to 0 before FJ, and his 14,400 from ...
