    The local news said they had heard Ken did 6 weeks of episodes.. (it was the beginning of a different recording I did I think)

    Clever question about whether it was 6 weeks worth of Jeopardy or Ken taped episodes for 6 weeks deleted (the first means Ken would've filmed for 2 weeks or so if they resumed their 3 days of filming a week of 5 episodes a day, while the second would mean 18 weeks of episodes as host).

    Then I found a post where Ken was signing stuff on December 10 in Seattle, and was to begin filming later for Jeopardy. So Ken couldn't have filmed for 6 weeks because he'd still be filming episodes.

    Ken doesn't have a very good TV voice.

    Who the fark is mentioning or even thinking about Dane Cook?! That story is reporting-free.

    I'd like to see Michael Strahan give it a try.

    IMO it was over the 2nd time I ever saw it. Funny the first time, lame ever since.

    It no longer even tries to be funny the first time.

    Fine, whatever.

    The fact remains that the NYT article mentioning Dane Cook is not "reporting-free".

    Well, actually it is in that they didn't break any new names that some other outlet hadn't already mentioned. I may have inartfully added that sentiment to my outrage over Dane Cook.

    So it's "reporting-free" if any other news outlet covered any story first?

    So only the very first news media to cover a story is "reporting" and every other one that follows it is "reporting free"??

    Riiiiiiiight.

    And many of those names have not been mentioned in this thread before. Does everyone in this thread read every single published news article about Jeopardy?

    You said:
    Clearly you hadn't seen any prior coverage of Dane Cook being considered. It sure sounded like that was a "new name" to you. So which is it, "reporting" because you hadn't heard of it before, or "reporting free" because it's all been covered elsewhere previously?

    Okay, but I've met Ken's friend Bean Dad (years before he was Bean Dad).

    Jeopardy EP Mike Richards will serve as host for two weeks of shows once Jennings’ current run of episodes concludes, to keep the show on the air while the guest hosts prepare for their stints.
