    For 3 more days. Then it's Executive Producer Mike Richards for 2 weeks. Katie Couric after that, starting a major charity donation - this may be exciting as they will be encouraging contestants to bet big (the more the contestants win, the more the charity gets).

    Haven't seen Jeopardy! in two weeks. Last week, our local affiliate preempted it every day for the Impeachment hearings.

    This week is the Snowpocalypse. Nothing but local news 24/7. Although we did get some prime time shows last night.

    And I'm not making fun of this, it's a dire life-threatening situation. 60% of Houston is without power. And it's below freezing for 3+ days. Some get rolling blackouts, but most are just down. Our condo hasn't had power since Sunday night. And we just got a notice from the condo manager that the water supply/pressure from the COH is dropping, and they may have to shut the water off. The snow stopped Monday, and Tuesday looked better. Cold but dry. And then overnight, an ice storm moved in. Right now it's about 30 degrees, and raining ice. It looks like snow around us (I'm at our ranch), but I went out with the dogs this morning, and very quickly realized (as did they), that there is a layer of ice covering everything. We are not used to this!

    Back on thread... I've been reading JBoard daily, but I miss my Jeopardy! Stay warm everyone!

    Our Jeopardy is on at 3:30p and gets pre-empted so much that I ended up setting up manual recordings for both the affiliate substation at the same time and the 3am slot on the regular channel. Sometimes they will air it on one or the other, but they aren't consistent. When they don't pre-empt the whole show, it seems like they don't bother to air it again though. I'm still not sure why there are no legitimate options for watching current episodes either streaming or on demand.

    Ugh! If the woman on the end hadn't risked anything tonight, she would have won! Another triple stumper in FJ!
    How many times do I have to say this? IF FIRST AND SECOND PLACE ARE CLOSE, THIRD PLACE SHOULD BET NOTHING!
    BTW, I knew it right away. Always been a huge figure skating fan and I remember when they made that change!

    Day 8: Jeopardy Held Hostage

    I guess I'm glad I missed it, I always yell at the people Regina described above.

    I reasoned it out after a few seconds, but I thought the change was made later than 30 years ago.

    Watching with the wife tonight and see mentioned that she likes Ken's sign off. What gets me is much earlier in the episode. They are still using Johnny Gilbert and I still hear the opening lines play out in my head as much as on TV. I get a little sad feeling when the TV goes "guest host" and the audio track on my head just says "host".

    I've wondered how many times Johnny Gilbert has flubbed the opener by saying host instead of guest host. You have to remember he's been saying host for 27 years...

    And yes, I know they could just re-record it in post, but still.

    Didn't I hear somewhere that Johnny doesn't do most of his work "live" anymore due to his age (>90) and COVID? He literally "phones it in?" So if he were to flub, he could just take it again-but yes, that would be sad :oops::(

    Yeah, for a few years before COVID, he was only live-on-set for the Thursday and Friday shows. He hasn't seen the studio once since the pandemic.

    You really should bug the station over and over and over, even if just via the "contact us" on their web site.

    I was enough of a complainer that for I think a couple of years now, I get emails when it's planned to be preempted with when it's supposed to be aired.. I still often have to add a bunch of padding to the 'makeup' recording, but at least can get the ep at all. There have been FAR fewer episodes preempted entirely over the past few years.

    but yeah, I really wish Jeopardy had a legitimate stream available. I would hope for a rolling buffer of one week's worth of episodes (at least), but even JUST the latest would be better than now, missing it entirely.... I would even suffer with forced commercials (well, mute and look away for 2 minutes or whatever).

    OK, that makes a lot of sense. I think I heard that too - a PA or other stage hand does the announcement now during the studio taping and Johnny's announcement is mixed in later. I actually heard this is his last season somewhere, though that may have changed since Alex's passing.

    So I guess it's a secret that Johnny will take with him to the grave. I can't imagine it was easy - he's been doing the same announcement of "And here is the host of Jeopardy! Alex Trebek!" and now having to say "And here is the guest host of Jeopardy! ...".

    It's not that much of a secret -- his working from home was mentioned in this New York Times article in January, for example. True, you wouldn't know that from watching the show, since they've been pretending he's there this whole time -- Ken has been doing a good job of nodding in the general direction of Johnny's in-studio location -- but in the grand scheme of things, Johnny's actual location doesn't really matter to the home audience.

    When taping they do 5 shows per day, so maybe he just came in on Thursday and Friday to do the intros for the 25 episodes they shot that week.

    Meant to say, he came in after the first three episodes of a taping day were complete, and worked live for the remaining two.

    Yeah, an article on the Jeopardy websitea few years ago, mentioned that's how Johnny was doing it. Pre-Covid, of course.

    I was talking about how many times he flubbed the intro, not the fact he was working from home. That's the secret Johnny is taking with him to the grave.

    Ken got it right last week. However, the pronunciation most people use assumes the first o is pronounced oo.
