Re: What tournaments are in store for Season 37?

With interim hosts, I don’t see them filming a tournament. Then why would they bother with the College interviews? Why not, they need more of a pool this year than other years because of the format. Doesn't mean they are required to tape this season. They can easily tape these in the later part of ...

Re: 2015 test coming soon

I've just become ineligible for the Teen Tournament, and apparently the College test hasn't been administered in two years. What do I do then? Just take the Adult test? Yes, let us know how it turns out! Nice find! If I pass a 4th straight time and don't get an audition call, I'll need therapy. How...

Re: 2020 Current Events Study Guide

SolarWinds is a name that will likely come up, if not in Jeopardy, probably in LL. They are the company that made the software into which the malware was inserted for the big hack of US agencies. The name of the software is Orion. If this post needs editing for better wording on technicalities, feel...

Probably I ought to know this, but how many unaired new Alex episodes remain to air in early 2021: is it 10 or just 5?
5 remaining Trebeks from Jan. 4 - 8, 2021. First KJ hosting ep. is Monday the 11th when Alabama plays Clemson.

Re: 2020 Jeopardy North American Audition Tour

Does anyone know whether they have completed the recruitment process that began with the January round of online testing? Looking at the front page here and the initial post with cities listed, I would say they haven't hit all the cities. But with the weirdness that is 2020, and I know I wasn't loo...

Re: 2020 Jeopardy North American Audition Tour

My mock game Zoom audition was last night so officially in the pool. Anyone else audition this week? I was expecting a cakewalk because the tests were over and the mock game clue values were low, but I thought the questions were HARD. Even harder than the online test. Maybe they wanted to see how p...

Re: Learned League 87 -- Nov/Dec 2020

MY BWA votes went to New Serif in Town, 2017 Houston Astros, and Fast at Tiffany's. I bought a higher membership level this time and was eligible to vote on BWA. I waded through about 70 on the list (didn’t finish it) and none struck me as worth more than a mild chuckle so I didn’t submit a vote. I...

Re: 2020 Jeopardy North American Audition Tour

Now I don't know exactly about the Zoom version, but in the in-person version, three people at a time would play on a regular Jeopardy board, calling out categories and values, clues would be revealed, people would buzz in and answer when called on. At the in-person, there was a full 30 question bo...

Re: 2020 Jeopardy North American Audition Tour

Sorry for the multiple posts. Has anyone played a mock game on Zoom yet? I'm curious how it would work. Is there a proprietary software they are using this year for ringing in, or do you say "Buzz"? If nobody has done virtual yet, how do mock games generally go? Is it a full game of Jeopardy with s...

Re: The correct response, What is No Jeopardy?

I use Hulu live to stream live tv. Or an even simpler option is to get a digital tv antenna for something like $20-$80. The major networks, PBS, and a few others all broadcast for free "over-the-air" Hulu wants $55/mo. to stream live TV. :shock: They offer "60+ Top Channels" with apparently no way ...

Re: The correct response, What is No Jeopardy?

I think $5.99/month is a fine price to pay for Jeopardy, plus I get to watch 60 Minutes...CBS all access.

So 78% got the "Stan" from a 20 year old pop cultural reference. Good thing we had a Lawrence Welk question lately for us 22%ers.
I expected a big get rate since SNL just did a parody this week...and Eminem was in it.

It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia has been renewed for four more seasons, meaning it will pass The Adventures of Ozzie and Harriet as the longest-running live-action comedy series. While that part won't come up for a few years, probably good to know a few things about this long-running show, it has ...

Fwiw, week of 21st listings are out. Around the World with Alex is the title. Presumably, episodes that had those Galapagos clues in them?
could be any of the shows with a category where he did video clues, not necessarily the Galapagos; although I'm sure at least one of those would be included.

Barack and Michelle Obama both have top 5 NY Times best-sellers at the same time.

Any other spousal combinations do that?

Michelle - Becoming
