Magic # was begging to be won, that was a total softball setup. I can't remember seeing a range between the two prizes that high before.
The spread of $6122 today did break the record for the largest spread in Magic #'s history ( $6,020 was the old record set in 6/13/16 )

In my opinion, not a bad episode overall. Too bad more was not won in Punch A Bunch, but $10,000 is still pretty bad decent.

I did find it kind of funny that the second showcase was news-themed and they ended it with the Grandeur music used for WCBS news, I think.
There is a fifth dimension beyond that which is known to man. It is a dimension as vast as space and as timeless as infinity. It is the middle ground between light and shadow, between science and superstition, and it lies between the pit of man's fears and the summit of his knowledge. This is the dimension of imagination. It is an area which we call the Twilight Zone.

I saw they used the "progressive jackpot" thing like they did on Monday's show. Think they might do it all week? If they do plan on doing it all week, I would NOT mind at all if they did this again next season.

I'd take a $10 grand "loss" in PaB anyday ;)

Why is everybody so shocked about the Magic # setup?  Their entire MO for the game anymore seems to be, "We could have the prizes be worth $1 and $9,999 on every playing, and one out of three contestants would still find a way to lose."

And frankly, I think they're right.

They will. I love this addition to Big Money Week. :D
