Waiting for the final round...

Still laughing that there was any chance that those players would get the artist of The Kiss.
Rodin, or Klimt?

What's the going rate for an interim guest host these days?
More than scale, but less than they might otherwise command, since J! is a prestige gig, I imagine. Follow up question, Are the celebs getting paid more per week than Ken?

Re: 2021 Current Events Study GUIDE. Study GUIDE.

This is sort of last year's news, but I found it interesting. I thought maybe 2020 would see the first calendar year with the same song at number 1 both the first chart week of the year and the last chart week of the year, but Taylor Swift's "Willow" bumped "All I Want For Christmas is You" out of t...

Re: New old games in the J! Archive

I found the partial 9/10/87 episode on the Internet Archive: ... Thanks, I'll get it in later, if no one else does. It would be funny if I botched an Alex comment and credited it to Ken instead. Don't forget to update the champ's 2-day winnings, since there was scoring inconsistency in her second g...

Re: Wednesday, January 6, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

0/3 on the week. 2017 triggered me to 1917. I wonder if I'd do better on these if I was actually watching/hearing them, instead of just reading the threads.

Worst thing is, I'm pretty sure I've heard (or even asked) this question before.

Re: Tuesday, January 5, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I settled on the correct response, but it was a stone cold guess and way more than 30 seconds, so I'm 0/2 now on Alex's last week.

Re: Monday, January 4, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Correct suggestions quickly came in to eliminate all three. Should I refrain from adding such remarks from Alex? Even this week? If a contestant gets to a correct response in time then ignore the path to get there? For this week especially, I'd leave them in. As long as they're accurate, I see no p...

Re: 2020 in review and what's in store for 2021

I think that they wouldn't want Ken (or Brad, James, Pam, Colby, etc.) as the permanent host because that would make a whole lot of serious trivia players ineligible to be on the show. One could make a pretty good argument that recent history suggests they're not exactly after a "whole lot of serio...

For an example of a player saying it wrong, and then admitting it and not correcting it when Alex asks for clarification, see this game:
