Re: Pet Intellectual Peeves

This morning a TV news anchor here in DC -- a substitute sitting in for the regular guy -- introduced the weatherman who was about to discuss the end of the recent heat wave by saying, ". . . And it looks like we'll be seeing an end to the unbearable heat we've all gotten used to!" Perhaps just an i...

Re: Ideal changes for Season 28

3. Don't interrupt the Jeopardy Round, except for a commercial break, and move the interviews to the beginning. That was how it used to be done, at the beginning of the Trebek era. .

Re: New season tapings delayed

Regis Millionaire taped the day before it aired back in 1999 and 2000. That's one thing WWTBAM had over J!: Being recognized in the airport on the way home from taping my second show. Talk about instant gratification! Public kudos before my televised run was complete is probably the only thing I ha...

Re: You're welcome, Rex

This is a peeve of mine . I daresay this isn't the thread for this. It doesn't help, and might discourage, those of us who come here with an honest search for answers from good people who are eager to help, including Rex, who you cited. . . No worries, Jeanie! The J!

I don't think any individual has served as a cast member of SNL since its premiere! I think 14 years is the record. :)
