Jeopardy 23: parade of guest hosts continues

Thanks for the suggestion to watch on YouTube, which for some reason I thought had been discontinued a long time ago.

When Matt appeared, the term "skullfecker" sprung to mind - lucky monkey!

Final was very easy. Ones I knew that they missed: humble pie, Rio Grande, Mikado, Pat Brown = Jerry's dad, Monkey's Paw, and RI = 1790.

Mayim Bialik should get the full-time job, but bet she won't.

I think she will. There's such warmth in her voice and personality. She's another Arlene Francis, though lacking a bit Arlene's wit and sense of humor.

I have a problem with today’s FJ clue. The quote was in English, but it was not said that it was translated from a different language. My first guess was Kafka, the correct answer, but I switched to Agatha Christie because there wouldn’t have been an English language quote in Kafka’s book.

by Anonymousreply 3506/22/2021

My understanding is that the guest hosts will last the remainder of this season, meaning through the end of next month. They have to start taping for September shows with that person soon, if not already. If I remember correctly the new host will be officially announced this summer.

They'd have to be living in some sort of woke-inspired terror to give Burton the job before his episodes even air. They could probably get away with justifying white male Buzzy if he were truly interested in the job, but my bet at this point is on Mayim instead.

by Anonymousreply 3606/22/2021

R36, Speaking of woke inspired terror . . .

The Emmys announced today that future winners can choose to not have Actor or Actress on their statues, in lieu of the word Performer.

by Anonymousreply 3706/22/2021

Very few of these guest hosts are actually auditioning for the job. They're merely filling in amid a large publicity campaign

Savannah Guthrie is not going to leave her Today job to become the permanent Jeopardy guest host.

Anderson Cooper is not going to leave CNN to become the permanent Jeopardy guest host.

Ditto Katie Couric and Bill Whitacker, as well as Robin Roberts and George Stephanopoulos (when they host).

Aaron Rogers may want the job but the Green Bay Packers is not going to alter its training scheduled to accommodate his flying to Los Angeles every Tuesday and Wednesday to tape Jeopardy.

As good a job as Mayin Bialik did, I sincerely doubt here TV show Call Me Kat is going to alter its taping schedule to accommodate her hosting Jeopardy. Although this one is more of a possibility than any of the others.

I liked Bridget but she sure lost her mojo after betting big and losing on the Daily Double. I'd never even heard of this song about Henry Hudson the clue referred to.

And Jabberwocky was incorrect because it is a separate word from Jabberwock?

by Anonymousreply 4406/23/2021

I believe that Jabberwocky was wrong because the clue specifically mentioned the number of letters — 10 — which Jabberwock meets, but Jabberwocky exceeds by one.

That's correct about Variety's ranking above - that it's specifically one guy's view.

Typically, Jeopardy starts taping episodes for the next season the last week of July or first week of August.

They may delay that by a week or two this year to wait for the last of the guest host episodes to air. However, they can't do it too long since new episodes typically start airing the week after Labor Day.

I'm going to start with a Taye Diggs story... I saw the film How Stella Got Her Groove Back at a theater in NYC. Towards the end of his shower scene, several women screamed "Rewind! Rewind!" Wouldn't have minded myself...

My fellow regulars, I may be a candidate for heating aids, but a couple of answers jumped out at me as wrong, waiting for later score deductions that never came: 1) Baskin AND Robbins? 2) Night oil? Always heard that one as midnight oil.

I got final, after a false start of Happy Days Are Here Again.

This is the first week of Jeopardy guest hosts I have not watched at all. I've seen all the others, and I would say Ken, Mayim, producer Mike and Savannah were the best. Bill Whitaker was by far the worst, with Aaron Rodgers not too far behind. Everybody else was ok.

by Anonymousreply 14207/02/2021

I was rooting for Nanci . . . but I wouldn't want to meet her in a dark alley . . . Ouch!

FJ came quickly to me, with the 1976 Jimmy Carter connection.

Sanjay okayed McKenzie's incorrect "night oil" response for "midnight oil" . . . but the judges must have given him the nod. Usually, the host would ask the contestant to be more specific.

by Anonymousreply 14307/02/2021

In addition to Veronica, we gave another multi-day champion from Portland. I love it.

I was rooting for Nanci today 'cause I love that she is a grocery store clerk who made it onto Jeopardy and she played really great. Just goes to show that anybody can have a wealth of knowledge regardless of occupation.

by Anonymousreply 14607/02/2021

I guessed This Land Is Your Land for Final, but in hindsight, the correct answer was so obvious if I'd only considered that Jimmy Carter ran in 1976.

Yes, I was waiting for a score change over Baskin AND Robbins as well.

I suspect that if Alex were still here, he would have paused after the NIGHT Oil response, his signal to the contestant to complete the answer before he ruled on it. If she had not come back with the MIDNIGHT Oil, Alex would have ruled it wrong. However. Sanjay accepted the NIGHT Oil answer, then corrected her with the MIDNIGHT Oil and the judges just let it go.

Was rooting for Nanci to win. I liked her. As r144 said, very few grocery store clerks make it onto Jeopardy. I especially liked the way Nanci dotted the "I" in her name with a starburst.

Thanks, I noticed Hudson's as well. If we caught those, seems obvious the judges were trying not to make the host look bad. I'm sensitive to this as I felt awful when they deducted points for Austin solely over his New York accent - had it been written final style he would've been fine.

Austin was the longtime champ from New York, bearded bartender. He had a noticeable, though not heavy, NY accent. He rang in, answered correctly, but was ruled out (by Alex) as using the "wrong vowel"; his mic picked up his muttering "That's what I said, it's my accent!" He was totally shafted on that. If it'd been a final question, he would've gotten full credit for writing it correctly is my point.

I agree with the list posted in r154 link about who the top contenders for the job are, with the exception of Sanjay. Don't think Sanjay is really a contender.

However, I do agree that the other five are the only serious contenders -- Ken, Buzzy, Mike, Aaron and Mayim.

Of those five, my favorite is still Mike, followed by Mayim or Buzzy.

This is most likely true. I was on a game show many years ago and those who were accepted to appear were labeled by days. The better players were saved until the end of the week, hoping their success would carry over into the next week, where they would meet weaker opponents the first few days, thereby building up audience interest and viewership.

It's usually okay, unless they think if needs clarification (multiple presidents Bush, Adams, etc.)

I've never heard of this getting the initial article wrong rule until last night either. Frankly, it sounds like something he made up off the top of his head. Did the judges have access to the answers ahead of time, make a decision, which they relayed to the host via headset, before taping the final answer reveals? I always thought that the host doesn't see the Final Jeopardy answers until they are made public? I think the guy got screwed on being able to correct his answer as he seemed to do it before the correct answer was provided to me? Remember that the other day he let a few technically incorrect answers go through as we all observed here. Whatever his presentation skills are as a host, he doesn't do a very good job in terms of evaluating the answers.

I suspect the judges caught all those incorrect answers we noted that Sanjay missed. They just didn't want to embarrass a guest host by correcting his mistakes. So after that show, they likely were more diligent in making their rulings so as to maintain the integrity of the game.

I've always assumed the judges can see the Final Jeopardy answers as the contestants are writing them down on their screens. That way, they can rule in advance on anything and then whisper it in the hosts ear via the earpiece. That likely is how Sanjay knew to OK the "A" in Handmaid's Tale. A guest host would be far too inexperienced on the finer rules of the game to ever make that ruling on his own.

Have also assumed the judges see the bets in advance via their computers. No idea if the host can see these answers and bets in advance. I doubt it as that would take away the spontaneity of the host's reaction to seeing the answers such as the time Alex got choked up on the "We love you Alex" answer.

Also keep in mind, the show we see if often heavily edited. It make take 19 minutes for it to air the full game but the actual game may take 30 or 45 minutes to play. A few years ago, a Jeopardy insider who was around during Ken Jennings' initial 72-game streak reported here that Alex or the judges stopped the play to debate over some of Ken's questionable answers on an almost daily basis. He said toward the end, Alex was consistently arguing against whatever answer Ken gave, whereas early in his run, Alex was arguing for Ken's answers.

R272, you think I'm wrong about what? You think the JEOPARDY! episodes we see have not been edited at all to remove extraneous pauses and comments, etc.? You don't think it takes longer than a half hour minus commercial time to shoot each game? If that's what you think, then you are the one who's wrong.

by Anonymousreply 27307/15/2021

I was at a taping of The Daily Show and they not only went straight through, they timed the breaks to match the length of the commercial breaks. I’m not sure why.

I’m sure they edit out the occasional screw-up, or pause for a technical issue, but otherwise I’d bet they plow right through.

by Anonymousreply 27407/15/2021

Arrgh. Of course they try to go through the shooting of these shows with as few pauses/mistakes as possible, but things happen. Anyone with any knowledge of these things can see where there are edits in the JEOPARDY! shows, though some of them are far more obvious than others.

by Anonymousreply 27507/15/2021

An acquaintance was in the audience for a day in 2019. I got the impression that they do shoot for doing it all in one take? I believe they did three shows on his day... something about Jimmy hosting a sort of "audience Jeopardy" between filmings. The guy was thinking of re-locating to L. A. telling me he'd sign up as often as he could to be in the audience.

Of course they pause when there's a question about a response. You think Alex put together those corrections during a two-minute or whatever commercial break?

Again: ARRGGH! Nobody is saying they "routinely" pause. For one thing, corrections aren't necessary very often. But yes, corrections would be one of several reasons why there would need to be small edits made to the shows before they air. The discussions with the players at the beginning of the show is one place where it's often obvious that little edits have been made.

by Anonymousreply 27907/15/2021

You said they regularly go 50-100+% over the 19 minutes of game time. That is routine pausing.

I did not say that, maybe someone else did. I gave no time estimate, I merely said that I'm sure some edits are often necessary, and that probably all of the games require at least a little bit more time than 19 minutes to shoot -- though undoubtedly some require more time than others due to more mistakes, more edits necessary during the conversation with the players at the beginning, and so on.

The original dispute you waded into was not over whether or not there are sometimes edits made. Of course there are. The dispute was over how long it takes to tape each episode.

Great game tonight! Tyler is definitely a cutie but seems really young - like jailbait young. Boy is smart though, I'll give him that. I liked the cute Russian Andre too. He hails from Damascus, Oregon which has a large Russian community. It's too bad he flamed out early 'cause he was on a roll in the beginning. I enjoyed the back and forth between him and Tyler.

Judith was cool too. She should have wagered more on her Daily Double, but ultimately it didn't matter since she didn't know Final.

I found Tyler's wager for Final puzzling. He wagered $6,000 which brought him down to $11,400. Judith had $10,800 and wagered it all. Neither of them knew Final but if they both had gotten it right, Judith would have doubled her score and won the game. Tyler would have come in second at $17,400. I wonder why he didn't wager enough to cover Judith? I guess he was betting on her not knowing the answer. Whatever his logic, it worked out for him.

R301. Your math is wrong. Tyler had $17,400 going into Final while. Judith had $10,800. Judith bet it all while Tyler only bet $6,000. If both had gotten the correct answer in Final, Judith would have finished with $21,600 while Tyler would have finished with $23,400. Tyler would have still won.

by Anonymousreply 34007/17/2021

I was on Password during the days of Allen Ludden. The producers told us to show up with seven days worth of clothes. When we got there, the wardrobe people went through the clothes and told us what we couldn't wear ( close checks or stripes, etc). Then to makeup. Indeed, the tapings were five shows in one day, although they changed the audience out after the third show, so that the reactions could be fresh. If you were fortunate enough to last five shows, by the end, mental fatigue was a real problem and the acuity was really hindered. It was very hot under the lights and, combined with the pressure of performing on television and hoping your partner was somewhat bright, it was taxing. Some of the celebrities ( Peggy Cass, Greg Morris, Elizabeth Montgomery) conversed with me during the commercials and put me at ease. Others totally ignored me and just spoke to Allen or the other celebrity as if I weren't there. Jeopardy is even more taxing, so I'm sure the contestants were very tired.

R351 A curiously useless comment and question. "Significant" facts from history are well within the realm of what a Jeopardy Champion should know. George Wallace ran for President in the most significant third party campaign in the last century (with the possible exception of Ross Perot). Integrating public education was one of the most visible initiatives of the great surge of civil rights - Wallace standing in front of the doors of U of A, blocking the entry of the Feds sent by Attorney General Robert Kennedy, was the visual image of the great conflict between federal government and states rights to end institutionalized segregation.

But his matter-of-fact delivery of his answers seems a bit off putting. I like it when contestants occasionally gives us some emotional response such as sweating over an answer or putting some excitement into learning their answer is correct. James Holzhauer had a similar matter-of-fact delivery, but he also showed some emotions.
