    The pause exists for marginal answers I get, but considering it was practically on every question, that was annoying. I can expect there to be a few marginal answers, but not on every question. It's amazing how it managed to break the cadence - I'm sure the pause (which was probably only a couple of hundred milliseconds) is relatively small, but you're so used to hearing "Correct" or otherwise practically instantly.

    The second episode though, went much smoother.There were pauses, but they were far fewer and only on marginal questions, so the flow was much better.

    My Roamio said Monday's episode was "Anderson Cooper". Last night's had the title "4-20-2021". Although on one of the two stations, it was mostly Biden and Harris.

    Great, another broadcast where I'll have to mute Joe Buck. Actually I've seen a couple of interviews with him, he's smart and can be funny. Just boring calling a game

    A lot of Buck’s flaws are because he is often paired with horrible co-announcers. I liked him on that show fox had about celebs watching TV during covid. And I will always love him for his call of Albert Pujols “squeezing out number two.”

    The best so far has been Anderson Cooper, and #2 is Ken Jennings

    Spoiler of another show tied to jeopardy not of jeopardy itself:

    Wow. Aaron Rodgers will guest star on the Conners as the guest host of jeopardy! Next month.

    Most likely that's simply because that's who was guest hosting Jeopardy! when that episode was filmed, right?

    I would guess. Or they wanted him for other reasons for the humor. I saw it in the ad for the upcoming episodes.

    Anyone else record the show on YouTube TV?

    I record the show and usually view in bed, but for the past few weeks, there's been a problem with the FF function.. When hitting the FF button, there is no progress bar or preview, so I have to guess how far to go through the ads.

    YTTV likes tie-ins with shows. For example, TWD has a creepy zombie hand for the progress bar pointer. However, Jeopardy! is annoying. Nothing else that I've found has this problem.

    It’s fine for me on YTTV so it might be an issue with the local station. I’ve seen that issue on shows in the past, but it’s been a long time so I don’t remember which show/channel had the issue.

    Well, following a brief chat with TYYV Help, the problem is resolved! Turns out, the issue was the moron behind the remote!

    Because it was happening the same on two different ATVs (living room and bedroom), I didn't think to close the app and restart it. When I did, Boom! There's my precious progress bar!!!

    ..and me having a career in tech, too!

    I'm not real familiar with Levar Burton, as I've never watched anything he's been in (not because of him), so it's hard for me to prejudge, one way or the other. But can we at least wait until he actually guest hosts a show or two before we proclaim him the Second Coming?

    The ones I've been most impressed with are the ones I least expected to shine, and vice versa.

    Ryan Reynolds Endorses LeVar Burton As Permanent Host Of ’Jeopardy!’

    They adjusted the schedule for Alex toward the end. The normal schedule is 5 episodes a day, and they changed it to 5 episodes over 2 days. They could easily make a schedule for AR to take training time and the actual season games into account.

    There was the one Mole episode where the contestants had to race holding a small tray with a bottle of wine and a glass on it. At the end they had to pour a glass of wine without spilling a drop. They had to wait for the lagging contestants to get to the location of this chore. AC told the contestants who were finished about a time when he was a waiter, and had to learn how to do this. It was very casual and chatty.

    I'm not sure I'm going to able to watch Stephanopoulous. That may be too much to stomach. :(
