Wouldn't that be zero and done?
In Jeopardy parlance "one and done" is appearing for one game and losing.
Seems to me they could pretty easily do Jeopardy with no audience and just separate the player podiums 6 feet..
They have a week or so with no audience coming up.
But there is more than Alex and the contestants. There are a large number of people behind the scenes.
We're currently in the first week with no audience (they did have a handful of invited guests of the contestants in the seats, and that was it). The audience noises you're hearing are recorded. The second week with no audience is scheduled to air June 8-12.
Why not just tell us there is no audience? Fake audience noise is stupid. It's not like the audience is a big part of the show. ???
It's one thing to have the canned applause. But they're even inserting laughter when one of the contestants says a funny.
I agree, transparency is almost always a better policy.
Is it straight up canned or are they showing it to people to get their reactions. First is bad. Second not so much.
Meaning...? Recorded previously from an unrelated show and inserted? Or recorded from the few that are there?
Almost certainly it's the former. No way are they taking a rough cut of the show and screening it for a bunch of people and recording their reactions and then mixing them all together.
A rather dystopian touch, adding Alex's voiceover at the beginning and end to let us know these were new episodes (along with the on-screen "This is a new Jeopardy!" text on occasion).
THIS NEW EPISODE OF JEOPARDY! IS MANDATORY VIEWING
What did I not catch? I even watched the interviews (for the first time this century).
Chris and I are just referring to Alex's voiceover at the beginning of the opening titles specifically mentioning that it was a new episode, and then this graphic popping up at every opportunity, even between clues in a round whenever they had a couple seconds to spare.
Anybody know how many they have done?
Ok, I just noticed the New Jeopardy for the first time. I'm blind, I guess.
This tournament and one more week of regular episodes.
I thought Thursday's FJ was confusingly worded. Maybe it's just me...

FINAL JEOPARDY! CLUE
P.T. Barnum, whose traveling shows carried musicians, coined this word that now represents something growing in popularity
Spoiler: the answer
While I understand what they're going for, it seems odd to refer to bandwagon as "representing something growing in popularity". IOW, using bandwagon outside the phrase "jumping on the bandwagon".
@astrohip It doesn't bother me, because I'm not watching. But you spoilered the answer. And then posted the answer right below the spoiler tags. Three times. Lol.
Yeah, I knew that. I don't like to use spoiler tags in this thread once the day is over, or you end up with spoiler tag within spoiler tag. But for some nonsensical reason, I still like to spoiler the actual answer.
Makes no sense, I know.
