I like how Alex still refers to the process of "setting up the board" for Double Jeopardy as if they were doing that, instead of flipping a switch.Overall, it made the whole process of creating and displaying the clues much easier than on the original show, where they had to have each clue printed on a card, loaded into the board, and then manually pulled by stagehands while the show was being taped.
I figured that was just an error. Half the time, the show doesn't get skip-flagged at all. Half of the rest of the time, they decide to leave in the final Geico ad (that looks like part of the show). Etc.... when I watched Jeopardy! a bit later than usual tonight... the 30 seconds of Final Jeopardy! are skippable with SkipMode.
This is totally how they should choose new hosts from now on. Ken is hosting because he's the all-time champion... beat his record, and you become the new host, until someone beats you.Article about Amy Schneider from today's L.A. Times, in which the big news is that she says if they asked her to take a turn hosting, she'd consider it.
