    I’d rather they just revive the original. Mark Labbett as the Beast was a large personality. I don’t see it working without the snark.

    Shame on you. Jeopardy! in the form of a question is iconic and part of American pop culture. Go watch Millionaire or Weakest Ljnk and leave Jeopardy! alone.

    Of course I do. I was going to add an emoji or j/k but thought maybe it was obvious.

    Back on topic, I like how the current champ is making decently large daily double wagers. It really bothers me when contestants bet less the board max of $1000 or $2000. Sometimes they bet less than the face clue value!

    It's not illogical to wager less than the value of the clue which has the DD. Merely selecting the clue doesn't obligate you to answer so the selection doesn't put any money at risk. Finding the DD does obligate you to answer and risk money. They're not equivalent.

    the only thing that grinds my gears is when a contestant starts a round in the high-dollar clues, uncovers the DD, and then gets that look of "aw gosh, I didn't want to hit that so early!" Well, then why didn't you start at $200?!

    All three of the "G.O.A.T." competitors are very capable of being snarky.

    I didn't think about how my comment would be interpreted. Of course you continue phrasing in the form of a question, but the man lost lots of money and the chance to come back all because he forgot. In the Jeopardy round you don't get penalized for that.

    So what happens tonight? My Roamio says the show airs as usual but at least one network is joining election coverage at 7. I only have two possible stations to watch the show on.

    Jeopardy (and Wheel) air on the CBS affiliate here. They had the forethought to schedule it for their sub-channel, which was reflected in the Guide last night, probably sooner.

    You should complain to the channel that airs it..

    I had noticed it wasn't in the guide when I checked the other day (after noticing election coverage would start on the networks at 4pm here).. so I confirmed that for us, it's airing the Tues-Fri eps Wed-Sat (with the Sat one supposedly at 10pm, I'll probably just do a long a manual recording for a few hours total). (I complained enough about Jeopardy preemptions that I'm one of I think a few people he mails when they're off -- but I beat him with the question this time)

    I would watch -- even with forced commercials -- the rare episode that doesn't air normally.. if they had e.g. only the past 5 eps at a time, so I'd have to mostly keep up.

    Based on previous experience, I expect to miss Jeopardy entirely tonight. It didn't air in its normal time slot and if an overnight slot is scheduled (none is), it's not reliable if other programs run long (such as election coverage or late sports).

    But you do. Contestants have a chance to add the question in either round. In the jeopardy round, early on, Alex may prompt gently as it is assumed the players are acclimating to the game. But if they don’t use a question, they are wrong in all rounds.

    If you forget in Double Jeopardy then you don't get prompted gently.

    Yes. The difficulty goes up. So does the money.

    Everyone, including Alex, seemed to get Spain & France right away. I hit on Spain & Greece, and had to quickly run thru the map to get France. Made it in 30 seconds, although I didn't have to write them down. ;)
