    LOL! Yep-I DVR it and watch it later and I called my mother and said, "WTH? Why is Wheel of Fortune on at 7:30?" She said that they played Jeopardy at 7 pm and there was a scroll at the bottom of the screen essentially saying, "Our bad!" We joked that everyone at the local affiliate was on Thanksgiving Break and the "new hire" was in charge and messed up. I found the recap online. Pretty easy FJ. Not surprised that all 3 got it correct.

    I would guess the pre-call rate was 50%+.

    I guessed the answer when I saw the category. Is that what is meant by pre-call rate?

    rápido, ándale, pronto, are the 6 letter adverbs that come to mind right away, so 3.

    Edit: Hmm, none of my dictionaries list ándale as an adverb. Only as an interjection. Though it really is just used as a "get on, get going" type interjection.

    I did too. Sometimes it isn’t hard. I’m usually surprised that I get it during the commercial but not this time. That one was pretty obvious when you eliminate the completely obvious.

    Alex said we were going to get through this. He did not. He did not get to see us get past the pandemic. Although the expression is "he's in a better place now".

    And he said "Happy Thanksgiving", which was kind of sad since he didn't see the real holiday.

    Yeah and it was said that he had a Christmas message that was even more poignant since he passed away. Now that they changed the schedule his final Christmas message will air in January.

    Any reason why they can't air his Christmas message on Christmas Day, before whatever rerun Jeopardy airs that day?

    Well kind of. It’s part of the episode they taped to air originally on that day. I suppose they could cut it up but didn’t assume they’d do that sort of thing.

    If they are to show it before the final episodes, it would make sense to do it on the last new one before Christmas which would be 12/18 I believe. Merry Christmas means more before the holiday than after.

    Yesterday, they showed Alex's Thanksgiving message on the national news before the episode aired. Perhaps they will do something similar for Christmas.

    A brief tribute to Alex was inserted by the first show which aired after Alex's death. I'd assume his Christmas message would be edited in to either the episode airing on Christmas Day or the last new episode which airs before the break.

    Why isn't Alex wearing glasses?

    Pure speculation on my part: his chemotherapy, or something else related to his cancer treatment, changed his vision enough that he found he no longer needed glasses to read.

    My theory would have been he had that kind of surgery that makes it possible to not wear glasses, but why do that if it is unlikely you will live long?

    Another theory is contacts.

    I’d buy this. As a diabetic, when my blood sugar was elevated for a few weeks a couple of years ago, my eyesight got better and I couldn’t wear my glasses.

    I keep forgetting that after reading the clue for Final Jeopardy he didn't say "Good luck" but something else.

    He said "Good luck" today.

    Tough FJ today. Second place gave the game away. Not sure what his wager was supposed to achieve. Certainly not victory. We ended up with one of the weakest winners in a long time.
