I've been using Paramount + on my old CBS plan, and trying to watch on KHQA at 1pm EDT. The website for the station still has Jeopardy at 1pm eastern, but that has not been the case this week.

Where can I catch the early broadcast on a CBS station; or has something changed in how I need to watch KHQA at this time to see Jeopardy?

SPORTS BOOKS (not played in order)

$200 - Erin
$400 - Erin +1000
$600 - Erin
$800 - TS
$1000 - Holly

That's one area that Jonathan needs to bone up on (if at all possible) for the ToC.

Holly talked about Fred Astaire at chat, but she wrote a book about a different hoofer:


3 DDs all correct - The grand total of wagering: $4600 :roll:

If Erin had more on her opportunities then Jonathan may have been forced to bet more on DD3 and it could have led to a bigger pay day. As it played out Erin was fortunate to still be in contention for the FJ! round and Jonathan was unfortunate (though not costly) to have to perform in the FJ! round.

The FJ! had me connect small to big and be done quickly with no detours.

My ears detected multiple clue redos by Mayim so I suspect she has extra work to do after each game.

Yeah, those are the earliest on CBS affiliates. There are a handful of stations at 11 or 11:30 CT.

On the topic of early viewing a correction suggestion came in at 3 in the morning that corrected an older clue that by coincidence was about the correct response for DD1.

IP: 74.109.118.153 - I wonder is this person has some other method of seeing the game before it airs in the U.S.?

I think that Greenland is the only dependency that is larger then the country that owns it.

Pre-1962 independence, Algeria was more than 3 times the size of France. Trying to think of any other recent counterexamples.

She should have explained the Trios category before they started.

I lived in Knoxville for eight years. Pat Summit being a TS made me sad.

Dodgers needed a BMS.

Had Denmark before she was done reading the answer.

The UK, Chile, Norway, and New Zealand all have Antarctic territories larger than the countries themselves.

I could see someone going with Kay Yow, since she recently passed away from cancer. But Pat Summitt should not have been a TS.

That FJ should have been saved for Teen Week.
Never been on J!, but once won a knockoff version that aired on local access TV.
