Well, you can't dispute it based on the length criterion, but I'd be curious what people think about the 'most filmed' part.
A quick count on wiki shows 30 adaptations of Hamlet.

I pondered it and Othello, but picked the correct one.

I think Rodgers today was the best single show any guest host has done.
I would agree with that.

Re: Jeopardy! Interim Host Thread

Aaron Rodgers has one of the very few occupations where he is paid more than he would be as Jeopardy host. Anderson Cooper and Dr. Oz definitely make more than Alex did per year and Guthrie is probably in the neighborhood. Mayim certainly did when she was doing BBT. From what I can find, their annu...

Thank you Katie for the detailed explanation at the reveal. At least I know that my total made up WAG of Chickamonga was cromulent. I'm sure the writers provided the intel, but we've been left in the dark before by AT many times. This FJ was ungettable to me, if I finally remember Antietam, it does...

Do you think they would have taken "the Hindu Triumverate" for the clue that wanted Brahma, Vishnu, and Shiva? I'm counting it, for now.

Never read OMaM, so the clue meant nothing to me. I had no response.

Interesting, Santiago's population is greater than Buenos Aires when only using the city proper, but the opposite is true when factoring in the metro areas. There's a lot of cities like that. Using city-proper, Jacksonville is by far the largest city in Florida, being almost twice the size of Miami...

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? That was my thinking, too. Odd mention, re...
