    It's 7-8 here as well, but because we're in the Mountain time zone, our prime time starts at 7, so Wheel and Jeopardy! are competing with the first hour of prime time. Needless to say, in the Phoenix market, the Wheel/Jeopardy! Hour is not on one of the big broadcast networks. It's on a local independent station.

    I think they're generally scheduled in a block (they're both Sony shows) but my comment was observing that in most markets where I've seen the shows, Jeopardy seems to be the 7:00 title with Wheel of Fortune at 7:30. Here in Harrisburg/Lancaster/York, Wheel airs first.

    Jeopardy was CBS at 4:30 (local CenT). Wheel CBS at 6:30, after the local news. In Central zones, the news is at 6pm, and prime time starts at 7pm.

    Now Jeopardy is ABC at 3pm. Wheel is still CBS 6:30pm

    Not in the Central time zone (and Mountain, aside from weirdo places like Phoenix) -- it's very typical there to have "Wheel" at 6:30 (after the news), and "Jeopardy!" a bit earlier in the day (before the news).

    Pro-tip: you don't have to read the thread from the beginning each time.

    I just did a quick look at some other Mountain Time cities and found this:

    Denver: Jeopardy! at 6 pm and Wheel at 6:30 pm, FOX affiliate
    Albuquerque: Jeopardy! at 6 pm and Wheel at 6:30 pm, CBS affiliate
    Boise: Jeopardy! at 6 pm and Wheel at 6:30 pm, CBS affiliate
    Salt Lake City: Wheel at 6 pm and Jeopardy! at 6:30 pm, independent station
    Phoenix: Wheel at 7 pm and Jeopardy! at 7:30 pm, independent station

    Those markets cover 95+% of TVs in the Mountain Time Zone.

    As I was looking up this info, I ran across this interesting article from 2014 which directly addresses this discussion:

    That what it is here in St. Louis. Jeopardy comes on at 4:30 CST and Wheel comes on at 6:30 CST. Both on the same local NBC station for as long as I can remember.

    It's official: 95+% of the Mountain time zone is weird, not just the Phoenix market.

    According to that link I included in my previous post, it seems that the Central Time Zone is the outlier, as most of the rest of the nation shows Jeopardy! and Wheel back-to-back in the 6 pm to 8 pm window.

    I haven't seen it yet. The movie is obvious. I'm guessing it's

    Blame Canada and not "Uncle F-cker"

    Sorry, you didn't phrase it in the form of a question. :)

    But yes, you are otherwise correct.


    Here's what the contestant was referencing with her answer, though:

    Yes.

    Also, all the Youtube comments are about her chest.

    The combination of her shape and the outfit was atypical for Jeopardy. As also mentioned in the YT comments she was very twitchy and animated, whether answering the questions or not. Her habit of holding the buzzer up and in front of her also tended to draw attention.

    The episode on the 17th was also a bit "different". The post FJ clip where they showed the contestants standing with Alex began with a shot of the winner's ankles, showing off a tattoo as she turned around. Not paying attention to the rest of the clothing I re-wound, thinking it was the Rolling Stone's tongue tattoo that had been mentioned earlier, but that was a different contestant.

    It was just an odd, tight zoom on her feet and ankles that caught my eye as something not usual for the end credits shot on Jeopardy.
