Nick was cute, but so was Adam. It was so hard to choose between them.

Khalilah is a fucking maniac. Omg, she was the most aggressive player I've ever seen.

She's smart, but she's totally mental.

The other two players were just ... DUDS. Including yesterday's champ.

Not surprising, but Jeopardy! suspended production —

3/20/20

Jeopardy! has suspended production until further notice.

The episodes that are currently airing were taped several weeks ago – well before concerns about the coronavirus. Any interactions between contestants, Alex or the studio audience took place when such actions were considered safe.

We take the well-being of our staff, crew, contestants, audience guests and host very seriously, and will not resume taping until it is completely safe.

Similarly, all previously scheduled contestant searches have been postponed. We will not resume contestant tryouts until it is safe to do so. However, please note that if you have not taken the Jeopardy! Anytime Test online, you may now do so whenever it is convenient for you from your home computer or mobile device.

by Anonymousreply 2004/02/2020

Another update —

3/24/20

To All Current (and Future!) Contestants:

If you are currently in the Jeopardy! contestant pool, please know that the show has suspended production until the current health crisis has passed. However, the contestant team is taking this interruption into consideration, and the standard 18-month window of eligibility will be extended accordingly. At minimum, all current applicants will have their active status extended equivalent to the length of this hiatus.

If your shows have already been taped and you are anticipating air dates, there is a chance that some episodes may be rescheduled. In the event of a date change, the contestant team will contact you individually with detailed information as it becomes available and/or necessary.

Usually the paywall comes up out of nowhere, it's impossible to link a new thread, because people are already locked out.

That's actually why a new thread has to be created. Because we can't post in the old thread.

Perhaps the solution is to go ahead the create Part 21 NOW. Publicize that thread in this thread and have everyone bookmark it. Then, leave it alone until it's needed. Continue using this thread until it is paywalled.

That way, those of us who are paying members will see it pop up in our thread watcher when people start using it thus signalling that the current one is Murieled.

From the New York Post . . .

“Jeopardy!” fans were bowled over on Tuesday night when a clue on the board seemed to reference the coronavirus pandemic.

But the April 7 episode — in which three university students were competing as the storied ABC game show’s two-week-long College Championship — was filmed in early February.

Nathaniel Miller, a sophomore at Yale, selected an $800 clue during Double Jeopardy from the category “Health & Medicine".

Beloved host Alex Trebek, who is battling pancreatic cancer, read out the prompt: “From a Greek word for people, it describes a disease that affects many people at one time.”

Miller buzzed in with the correct answer, “What is a pandemic?”

The World Health Organization declared the coronavirus a pandemic on March 11.

It didn’t take long for fans of the show to exclaim over the coincidence on social media.

I totally missed her interview, but caught the end part, when he was raising his eyebrow at her.

She was doing some dancing movement, and if I heard correctly (from far away) she said she wanted to meet a rich guy.

There were only two possibilities for that, since only China and India have over 500 million people.

The hand shaking between players after the game is a fairly recent ritual. In the past, contestants barely acknowledged each other during the closing credits.

by Anonymousreply 22004/23/2020

My understanding is that the show tells contestants NOT to shake hands after the match.

In years past, contestants were good about following that edict, but in the past year or so, they've been ignoring it more often.

Frankly, it just looks better when the contestants shake hands. Signals "good game" and "no hard feelings." When they don't shake hands, it always seems to signal that there's something wrong, some bad feelings between contestants, someone is a sore loser or a stuck up winner.

Now in a coronavirus world, shaking hands will be verboten.

I had the same reaction to Final that Sarah did. I knew it was either Grant or McClellan but went with Grant because he was the more famous of the two. In hindsight, I should have picked McClellan simply because of the 1862 date. Grant didn't assume command of the Union army until 1864.

This is one of the shows they filmed without a studio audience. The one shot of the audience was a tight shot of Sarah's daughter surrounded presumably by a few friends/family of the contestants and/or contestants for later in the week.

R259, According to Johnny Gilbert at R246, it did not.

by Anonymousreply 26005/01/2020

The publicity said they were filming without a studio audience beginning the week of March 9. And then the had to shutdown production because of the coronavirus lockdown starting the week of March 16.

Given that next week they are repeating the Greatest of All Time tournament with Brad, Ken and James that aired on ABC in January, that suggests they are out of new episodes. I mean, repeat episodes during May sweeps? Clearly out of new episodes.

The point is, the episodes we're seeing this week seem to be the ones that were filmed that week of March 9 which was supposed to be without an audience.

I was startled by that audience shot during Thursday's show as well. They had so very clearly been avoiding an audience shot on Monday and Wednesday's shows (the show has at least one audience shot every episode, usually two or three shots). And that tight audience shot on Tuesday's show was just of 6-8 people (likely family/friends of contestants).

My guess is either that Thursday's audience shot was a quick shot of a previous show's audience. Or they got all the crew and contestants to sit in those seats specifically for that shot. (Things like that are known to happen).

Or perhaps they really did pull in an audience despite saying they'd tape without one. Maybe they found the game didn't feel right without an audience so after the lunch break, they rounded up people to sit there. Plenty of people on the Sony lot they could have grabbed to sit in the audience.

I think it might have been sped up because there were less commercials per half hour back when Ken Jennings first started as opposed to now.

Yes, Alex was talking faster and louder back in the 1980s. I almost forgot that it was they way game show hosts talked back then. They were trying to cram the whole show in the 30 minutes and that was the only way to do it effectively.

by Anonymousreply 33207/22/2020

These classic episodes definitely sound speeded up slightly, presumably to get the entire game in while also accommodating the extra commercial time shows have in 2020.

We noticed the same thing back in May when they reran Ken Jennings first episode from 2004.

by Anonymousreply 33307/22/2020

Speaking of Ken Jennings, did anyone else notice that the promos for Alex's new book say that the Audible version is read by Alex and Ken Jennings? Is that a sign he's the replacement waiting in the wings?

I was wondering if the episodes were sped up as well.

It's not just a matter of Alex talking faster, but his voice sounds funny as well, as if it's distorted.

He only does that in the first round. If the contestant does not answer in the form of a question, he does not remind them and they are penalized.

by Anonymousreply 36109/22/2020

My understanding is that they're allowed to get away with forgetting to respond properly during the first round - and in each of those cases, Alex reminds them.

But they are in fact supposed to be penalized if they do it during the second half of the game because I distinctly remember contestant[bold]s[/bold] losing money if they just give the answer without the question.

It's one thing that Alex didn't hear the response as such; it's another that the judges didn't pick up on it and have Alex correct it after the commercial break.

Normally, watching Jeopardy is one of the ways I unwind from a long day. It's usually very relaxing.

Tuesday's episode was anything but relaxing. It was 15 or more years old and was clearly sped up to get the entire episode in plus all the commericials. But it was so sped up, I felt like I was moving at super speed. I felt more wired and wound up after watching it than I did before I started watching.

If all the episodes from this two week retrospective are sped up like this, I may have to skip it.

I thought Christmas Day was when they were scheduled to air the last show with Alex Trebek, but they only replayed an older game form years ago.

by Anonymousreply 50501/04/2021

That was the original intent, but they moved Trebek's final episodes to this week, with his last appearance being on Friday.

by Anonymousreply 50601/04/2021

Show wants high ratings for the final week of Trebek shows, viewership often goes down during the holidays. So they showed repeats for two weeks and are airing his final episodes this week.

Anyone else finding Jeopardy! Executive Producer Mike Richards sexy as hell?

I didn't get FJ, even though I've read the book. David really mucked up that $10,000 Daily Double.

by Anonymousreply 50901/04/2021

Yeah, poor David. He shouldn't have forgotten the pen.

Jennings continues to prove his asshole-ness and that he is unfit to lead Jeopardy.

Fuck him.

FJ was SO hard. I had no idea that Carolus is Latin for Charles.

by Anonymousreply 51301/05/2021

Carlos is Spanish for Charles. I've not seen the show, today our local ABC affiliate, was running the Georgia runoff results.

by Anonymousreply 51401/05/2021

I guessed FJ correctly, but it was a shot in the dark. Ex-champ looked pretty grumpy at his loss.

by Anonymousreply 51501/06/2021

Only reason I guessed North and South Carolina was because of the TWO states and the date.

Had never really thought before about Carolina somehow being a derivative of Charles.

by Anonymousreply 51601/06/2021

Can’t believe I missed FJ! I love that movie. I guess I forgot the category.

by Anonymousreply 51701/06/2021

As Alex said, another hard FJ. Would never have got it. I like the new champ.

by Anonymousreply 51801/06/2021

I initially guessed 1917 for Final, then realized it came out in 2019. I then quickly realized the answer was Wonder Woman. Not sure I would have had enough time to get my answer written down before time was up.

Just bumping this up because tonight was Alex's last appearance.

Nice clip montage of Alex at the end of his last show.

Future trivia question -- What was Alex's final Final Jeopardy question?

by Anonymousreply 52201/09/2021

It's too bad Alex's final game was not more competitive.

by Anonymousreply 52301/09/2021

Goodbye Alex.

Hopefully they will find someone better to replace you than that smug, unfunny Mormon.

If you missed it, here is the tribute.

Actually, Katie Couric might make a good permanent replacement as long as she reins in the cutesy factor.

by Anonymousreply 52601/09/2021

That would be impossible, r526. And please, no Meredith Vierra.

Well, we get to sample Ken as a host starting tonight.

Wonder if he'll be any better than he was on his new game show The Chase?

by Anonymousreply 528Last Monday at 10:48 AM

Well I'm not looking forward to Ken.

If it had to be a major Jeopardy player, I'd rather it be Brad Rutter.

by Anonymousreply 529Last Monday at 12:12 PM

Just watched it here in the Midwest. He’s low energy and his voice is kind of feeble. He’s pleasant enough, but that alone won’t get the job done.

by Anonymousreply 530Last Monday at 1:12 PM

I thought he did well. Seemed to lose some steam towards the end, but he'll develop the pacing. Nerves might have been a part of that.

Nice tribute he gave to Alex in the beginning.

by Anonymousreply 531Last Monday at 3:27 PM

Yeah, he wasn’t a complete disaster.

He said nice things about Alex and he seemed to really choke up at times.

It felt like he was sort of rushing but he was alright.

by Anonymousreply 532Last Monday at 4:19 PM

I though Ken was fine too. Nice suit. The new champ had a great comeback and scored in a very broad range of categories. I love Elvis, but missed FJ.

by Anonymousreply 533Last Monday at 5:23 PM

Me too. I guess a rudimentary knowledge of Spanish would have helped. Which I do not have.

by Anonymousreply 534Last Tuesday at 3:55 AM

I thought Ken did a fine job. He's merely mimicking what Alex did at the moment and he did fine with that. Yes, he seemed to have had a little bit of nerves, but WHO WOULDN'T hosting the first show after Alex's death? I imagine Ken will develop his own style once he gets some shows under his belt.

Ken did a very nice tribute to Alex at first. There was also a nice tribute at the end of end credits.

I imagine Brad Rutter will be given a shot at being guest host. I think Brad will do well as host too. Likely James Holzhauer will get a shot at guest host as well, but I suspect he will be very poor as host.

Final was fairly obvious. I don't speak Spanish, but know enough to know "Viva" means "Live." With the reference to a hit song and movie of the same name in 1964, it didn't take much to figure out it was Viva Las Vegas.

by Anonymousreply 535Last Tuesday at 10:39 AM

Lucy is super smart. Nice FJ category for an animal lover. Checkers wasn't a bad guess.

by Anonymousreply 536Last Tuesday at 6:17 PM

Very good game! Liked Lucy a lot. Remembering the name of that dog was impressive. Checkers was the only thing I could come up with and I knew that was wrong.

Anyone watching The Chase on ABC on Thursday nights? It's a game show featuring contestants trying to match wits in trivia competitions with Ken Jennings, Brad Rutter and James Holzhauser. Show debuted just after the New Year

Each week, one of the three Jeopardy champs goes up against the contestants. So far, Ken and James have gone up against contestants. Presumably, Brad will go next week.

As far as their performance, let's just say that Ken was affable enough, but James came across as a complete jerk.

Any thoughts I had about whether James could be host of Jeopardy were erased after watching him on The Chase.

by Anonymousreply 541a day ago

I thought Ken was great: the small talk during the contestant chats can be painfully awkward , but he handled it well all week.
