Alex kinda chastised them:

"A GREAT basketball player!"

It's happened once before, back in 1993.

Last year there was a game when all three tied with $0. They sent all three home and brought in 3 new contestants, of which Trebek informed them with a hardly restrained gleeful smugness.

I read an article just roasting the players in this game for their strategy. For instance both Carlos and Fran decided to go Daily Double hunting. While this bothers the OCD crowd, it is a legitimately good strategy. Those Daily Doubles are powerful parts of the game. But! If ya gonna hunt them, and ya finds one, fucking BET! Carlos did it right. The first he True Daily Doubled (but lost...no shame, it happens), but the second he got $5100. But Fran...yeah, not so much. She's hunting, pissing off the OCDers, finally finds it...

And bets a whopping $1500. In Double Jeopardy. Wha, wha, waaaa....

I didn't know Jeopardy was still on and have never clicked on this thread, but this expostulation by Q caught my ancient eyes.

When I was a boy, there were two antiseptics that were as common in every medicine cabinet as band-aids: tincture of iodine and Mercurochrome. Kids usually preferred Mercurochrome because it didn't sting as much as iodine. It would leave a red stain on your skin that lasted a long time.

We used Mercurochrome. And mercury thermometers. And played with the mercury when the thermometer would break!

Didn't affect me! Shocked

The Minnesota Lynx were a $1000 clue in the first round today, and the former champ got it right!

Alex had brain surgery after a fall.

Quote:
"After two days in the hospital, I came home to start recovery," said Trebek. "The prognosis is excellent. And I expect to be back in the studio taping more Jeopardy! programs very, very soon."

Hopefully they took out some of the smarm along with the blood clots.

Hopefully retirement is coming soon and they replace him with a host with an actual personality. While I’m at it, hopefully the producers of TPIR comes to their senses and fires Drew Carey who has ruined the once ‘greatest game show in history’ to a pile of trash. Actually, the producers need to fire themselves too and the show needs to reset to how it used to be. It’s become completely unwatchable. TPIR needs a host with actual charisma and sense of humor like Mr. Barker had. Get rid of the male model who has no place, get 3 female models who are classy and beautiful like Holly, Dian, and Janice were, and restore the showcases at the end of the show to how they used to be, with comedic sketches while revealing the prizes like the old days. Stopped watching that mess about 7 years ago, tried to watch it again a couple months ago to see it was just as bad.

I still think Kelly Miyahara should take over as host whenever Alex retires.

As for The Price is Right, it's the highest rated daytime network show. Drew Carey's not going anywhere.

Alex seems to take so much pleasure in 'correcting' people on their pronunciations.

A clue on tonight's show referenced Michiana.

Alex, it isn't Michiona. It's a combination of MICHigan and IndIANA.
