Re: $75,000 rule

When the board values doubled late 2001, the $$$ limit went away, but the five-day limitation remained until Autumn 2003.

Re: How long were the "broadcast runs" for Julia Collins, David Madden, et al?

David Madden definitely had his run over two seasons. Indeed he did. His first game aired on July 5, 2005 with his defeat telecast on September 19, 2005. Julia's first victory was shown on April 21, 2014 and she was conquered on June 2, 2014...ten years to the day of Ken Jennings' first appearance.

My memory is not what it used to be. I swear "We Got The Beat" was 1982, not 1981.
It was released as a cut on the Beauty And The Beat album in 1981 yet not released as a 45 RPM until the first full week of January 1982.

The show is running the teacher's tournament next week for sweeps week, but with the ratings bump that James is generating they'd be better off with the regular games.
AND the week after. So should James win today and tomorrow, we'll have to wait until May 20th to see his next game.

Re: Wednesday, May 1, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I'm fairly new to the board, how are you guys getting the show early? I'm in TN and the show doesn't air here until 3:30pm CDT. There's a station in Alabama, I believe, that carries the show at 9:30 Central time. It's a CBS affiliate and the network was running special events coverage this morning ...

I wish you would credit those words to their author, Norman Gimbel
Fair enough. We learn every day.
