Although in the past couple years, they have done a handful of "supplemental" online tests that are open only to people in a certain geographic area. You'll have to keep an eye on your local "Jeopardy!" station to find out about those.

Sucks cause I even entered it in to my calendar while I was reading it and I could swear it said CST (which is what I selected).

But if the test was at 8 pm ET (or even 8 pm CT) it couldn't have said 10 pm, regardless of time zone (unless it was a time zone in the eastern Carribean or South America).

Yes, that's true. Don't know how I could have read it wrong when I looked at it at least 3 times to make sure, but obviously I must have.

For now on it looks like the only Canadian allowed on the show is the one hosting it. As Canadian are barred do to some international law on how information is shared on internet.

One of the contestants today (Monday) is from Montreal, so the headline "Canadians no longer allowed on Jeopardy" is an over-simplification.

Canadians weren't allowed to register for the online contestant test last month, but Canadians who are currently in the contestant pool (because they had taken the test in the past) are still eligible to appear on the show.

WTF?!? We almost got to see a train wreck.

Tuesday's Jeopardy, going into FJ the leader had a lock by just a couple hundred. So of course her FJ wager will be somewhere between 0 and $199.

And she wagers $7700! It was a triple get, but had she missed, she would have been a very rare lock that loses. I can't even remember the last time that happened.

Alex's patter as her question is revealed...

"Annie could not be caught. This game was a runaway for her. She wrote down **** (redacted for spoilers, in case you haven't seen it). So she is right. She didn't have to risk anything. [Her wager is revealed] But oh my gosh. $7700. What a gutsy move."

I believe the word he wanted to say was "What an incredibly foolish move".

Is that known as "pulling a Clavin"?

Almost. For the full Clavin you have to be a lock to win and bet *everything* (and preferably lose)

What I want to know is to hear what the contestants were thinking wagering like that. Pure greed? Cockiness? Arrogance?

Apparently, she had a brain-fart. Or is really bad at math.

Anyone notice Alex's outfit at the very start of this episode, when he's introduced?

Spoiler:
No trousers.

I also think I got all the clips, though Watson seems to have disappeared on my Tivo when I later tried to show someone, so maybe I imagined it.

Never would have caught that, as we ff to the first clue.

He requests the last clue of the first round ("Tuba" for $1,000).

I believe that clip dates back to the Ultimate Tournament of Champions, circa 2006. (It didn't air, but Alex obviously knew it would be on the "Jeopardy!" blooper reel forever.)

My favorite "Jeopardy!" April Fool's Day was 1997, when Pat Sajak hosted, with no acknowledgement whatsoever that he wasn't the regular host. (Alex hosted "Wheel of Fortune" that day, but the contestants were Pat and Vanna playing for charity.)

It's clear when Alex walks out without pants it's a different set with different contestants.

Went to a taping today (as I've done every time I've been unemployed) -- I saw the episodes for July 18-20.

You totally should go to a bar where they have it on on that day and challenge someone for money.

There's a "Get Tickets" link at the top of the page on jeopardy.com, which leads you to this page -- they generally have tapings a few days out of the month, pretty much every month except May and June.

They've got it down to a science after all these years, so I showed up at the studio at 10:00, they began taping the first of the 3 episodes a little after 11:00, and I was out of there at, like, 1:05.

In 1998 I was visiting LA. There were lots of people hawking free tickets to shows. I think I got tickets for the same day or maybe the next. Very easy. I did the afternoon taping.
