Boy, The CW network is taking a beating with the Teens on the current tournament. Every clue dealing with shows from the CW have gone unanswered, including the three on the upcoming Monday airing.

For the record they are:

Smallville, Supernatural, One Tree Hill


They didn't get the first one either, a Fox show:

What were the questions?
post #394 of 409
^^^^
Those were the questions, i.e., put "What is" in front of the items listed. If you are looking for the clues, I no longer have the show online, but the category was basically "TV Shows By Actor."

Two major actors were listed for each show.

Sorry, I wasn't thinking and didn't provide the clues.

If you want to "impress" family/friends/co-workers by knowing who correctly gets the final Jeopardy clue right and what that clue is, unspoil the following:

SHOW: 6097
VTR: 12/07/10
AIR: 03/01/11

Final Jeopardy clue: A novel set during the depression earned this author a 1940 Pulitzer Prize & contributed to him winning a Nobel Prize in 1962

Final Jeopardy question: Who is John Steinbeck?

Contestants and what they had before Final Jeopardy and what they had after their response:

Raynell Cooper: $16,600 + $7,000 = $23,600
Kailyn LaPorte: $14,800 + $9,000 = $23,800
Raya Elias-Pushett: $15,400 + $451 = $15,841


Totals will be added to the 2nd day, with a minimum grand prize of $75k and a minimum 3rd prize of $15k.

Of all the years that I have been watching, I've never seen them show a portion of the control room, well today they did: control room image

I finally had a chance to watch tomorrow's (3/16/11) edition of Jeopardy!

I'm sure this has happened before, but I've not seen it in the past several years:

The two new contestants both ended up in the hole, so the champ did Final Jeopardy all by himself.
post #399 of 409
So was that a first on Tuesday? There was a tie for champion with both people ending with $1,599. So the second place finisher ended up winning more money ($2,000 consolation) then the champ. I didn't hear Alex mention anything about that yesterday or today.
post #400 of 409
Because there were two co-champions, they took the first two spots. The also-ran actually comes in third and gets $1000.
post #401 of 409
They had $2,000 posted on his board. Both co champs lost yesterday so one of the women played two games and only won $3,599.

Another year, another 90 minutes of pre-emption by our lame-ass DC affiliate, WJLA.

After two more years we are still stuck with the SD versions. I thought that after the local news went full HD that these two shows would follow. Where are the HD versions?

Doing HD news and doing syndicated programming in HD are two separate items. Doing one doesn't mean the other will happen. It is a case of different technology requirements.

These two shows aren't even provided in SD.
post #405 of 409
Wonder what the hold up is? I was holding out hope that they would broadcast them in HD after their full HD changeover earlier this year. It's bad when the local POS Fox station has their news in HD and two of the most popular shows around are gimped.

Same for the San Francisco Bay Area.

I feel like I am in the only city in the country where the HD versions are nowhere to be found.

"I feel like I am in the only city in the country where the HD versions are nowhere to be found."

They are not available in HD here in Panama City, FL on WJHG which is supposed to have the local news in HD..... but WJHG's version of HD news is terrible... worth noting is WTVY in Dothan, AL sister station to WJHG has both shows in HD as well as there local news which is in true HD....not WJHG's version of HD.
