Re: Learned League 87 -- Nov/Dec 2020

11% on Newlywed Game? Probably the most surprised I've been in 14 seasons about a low get-rate. I suppose probably a lot of people snap answered TPIR and didn't go any further but Newlywed was the first thing I thought of, other than the dating game and those prizes felt not appropriate for that. I...

Do you think that Johnny will be doing the intros for the rest of the season, or will it be someone else?
If he stops, it will be by his own choice. No reason the show would want too much to change too quickly.

Re: What ought to happen next?

Nothing against Burton, I just don’t get the hype. But my exposure to him is limited to Roots. People's exhibit A for the defense is the petition for Burton with many signatures.

My answer to the 'Did you watch Arrested Development?' question was no. Lol. Same. And yet frozen banana occurred to me, and then I swatted it away, settling on sno-cone as better than blank I couldn’t come up with the 1980s auto flop, even when spotted ends in O (or at least that was my assumption...

Re: What ought to happen next?

But if they can legally make this streaming arrangement, they need to do it NOW. They can't, due to their contracts with the various local stations that air the show. Yeah, that's what I was afraid of. I wonder if local stations can legally stream the show. Real time, contemporaneous with the broad...

I don't know what their current contracts will allow them to do. But if they can legally make this streaming arrangement, they need to do it NOW. Fire the Sony exec's nephew who got put in charge of Crackle and turn that into a legitimate option if you want. Many many many people will want to see A...

Re: 2020 Jeopardy North American Audition Tour

Anything involving an on-air host would have a contract, even if it is for one day. Even baseball players sign one-day contracts with a former team so they can retire with the team they are most associated with. Well, then I bow to your firsthand in-depth experience in the entertainment industry pu...

Re: What ought to happen next?

Jeopardy does not exist as a hagiography of Alex. Jeopardy is a business. They will have to make a business decision as to who will best front for their company. When Bob Barker retired after 36 years on The Price is Right, the producers did not have unending weeks of auditions for various replacem...

The day before, I had no idea what the canine disease was, so I went for BWA and wrote Rin-Tin-Tinnitus.
Not bad! Way better than many of the actual VBWA candidates lately.
with the new method of choosing bwa, there were some good ones in the choices last season.

Re: 2020 Jeopardy North American Audition Tour

I would think contracts would be the least of the problems as smart people would not be dumb enough to let agents foul up a golden opportunity. smart people wouldn't be dumb enough to do the job without a contract, and the show wouldn't be dumb enough to try and put someone on without one. Depends ...

Re: 2020 Jeopardy North American Audition Tour

Let's say November tapings are out, if not for staff grieving as anything else. The first three weeks of December could be a time to make hay and get shows done for 2021. I still advocate for two weeks of vault airings around the holidays to put off Alex's last shows airing. It's a cliche, but "The...

Re: 2020 Jeopardy North American Audition Tour

Poster hbomb indicated on Facebook that the show will resume taping new shows later this month using an interim host. This information comes from a source not affiliated with the show, so take it for what it's worth. he said a "possibly interim host". Personal opinion is I just don't see the show d...

Yesterday afternoon I received an audition invitation via Zoom for this week! It's my first audition EVER after nearly 18 years of trying. Well, this excitement was short lived. All auditions are cancelled due to the passing of Alex. My heart is broken in so many ways. Ugh. I had the same thing hap...

Re: Monday, November 9, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Giving the "Who" vs "What" also eliminates some responses, but usually in a good way that would force a contestant to reread the clue: "What is Newton's Second Law?" vs "Who is Newton?". I originally found out from a former contestant about the pre-written part when there was a question about the S...
