    I attended a taping in md-February that is scheduled to air on April 27-29. I think new shows will run into late May, maybe June.

    Word from over on jboard.tv is that they have shows in the can through the week of May 25-29, so reruns will start June 1 if they can't get back to the studio before then.

    Wow, that's way longer than I would have guessed.

    All week long guess who has interrupted Jeopardy with his Coronavirus updates.

    Well, today was... interesting. Not quite sure I've ever seen a game like they played today.

    All last week, OGL talked right during Jeopardy. This week it seems to occur at a later time during the day, and J is safe.

    I thought today (Wed) was a pretty crappy FJ clue. So obscure that all three missed (didn't even have a good guess, they all knew Lincoln was wrong), and one I would wager will score way less than 50% on JBoard. So 30 minutes of work down the drain, as the low person on the totem pole wins by default.

    She played well enough (except for guessing Babe Ruth for the player who broke the color barrier) and was not that far off the other two going in to FJ. She bet correctly too. Her main problem is that her buzzer skills aren't good.

    She had the lowest buzzer percentage of all nine semi-finalists.

    Having said that, I wasn't actually picking on her. It was a comment that the lowest score won, because all three negged the FJ. And she did wager smartly.

    And having said that, I think she stands -zero- chance in the finals against stronger opponents.

    I thought during yesterday's game she stood a zero chance so... who knows what'll happen?

    I'm kind of liking the jazzy version of the 'Think' song they are playing for this tournament.

    Dominating performance by Nibir. Won each day outright. Going all in on Friday's DD was a gutsy move.

    He was trying to "Who da' man?" to Alex, but Alex didn't catch what Nibir was doing, and talked right over it.

    I also thought it was funny that he had written the correct answer, crossed it out and replaced it with "who da' man?". Good champion & entertaining tournament.

    It was the lowest scoring FJ of the three semi-final games, the only one below 50% on JB. A poor choice by the writers (IMHO), creating a clue so difficult. It skews the hard work each player puts into the game.

    The best FJ clues are challenging, but get-able. Especially ones that can be worked out in 30 secs.

    I was totally stumped by the last one and found it to be an odd question.... trying to think of three different people. The president that was buried there, but whom it was not named after? It was named after a relative of a different president, but not that president himself? Very weird question. I was kind of shocked that the one player missed that first final jeopardy shown though, because that seemed too easy to me.

    Those GOAT tournament reruns are appearing in place of the Teachers' Tournament, which is currently scheduled for May 25-June 5 instead.

    Unless they make other schedule changes, that means there will be a week of shows with regular contestants May 18-22, and then another week with regular contestants June 8-12, and that's all the new shows they have in the can for this season.

    After hearing the answer my thought was, "Ohio is in the midwest?"
