I'm noticing the past couple of shows that the maingame puzzles, well most of them lately has been only on the two middle lines.

OY.   Today's Wheel of Fortune was just unfortunate.   AND one category in the Bonus Round has hit 20 losses.   DOUBLE OUCH.

I didn't watch it yet but I'm guessing that means a $100,000 loss?  :roll:

Some news this afternoon from Deadline as Bellamine Blackstone (Deal or No Deal, 1 vs 100, the Press Your Luck revival on ABC, among other shows) is the new co-exec producer of Wheel alongside longtime supervising producer and current interim executive producer Steve Schwartz.

It makes sense that Michael Davies would have no involvement in Wheel, considering he was never actually running the show. Wish this was cleared up sooner.

Pat's in hot water on social media once again, as some took offense to him asking Vanna if she's ever watched opera in the buff on last night's episode: https://finance.yahoo.com/news/viewers-call-wheel-fortune-pat-003336045.html

The key to living a long life is not giving a bloody damn what a few pearl-clutchers on Twitter say. As long as Vanna had no problem with it, there should be no issue here.

^Agreed, clearly she didn't take issue with the question since they left it in. It's just a silly thing to complain about.

Why are there articles like this about Pat like every week? Why does the mass media hate Pat so much? Ever since last season there's always some article about how people on Twitter (whom are apparently WOF "Fans" according to the articles) get offended at something Pat says, not understanding his jokes, or whether a ruling was right or wrong. A few weeks ago Vanna made a comment about making a dish with canned food and Pat jokingly walked off set, and the mass media made it sound like Pat had some kind of on-set outburst.

Because quite frankly, either Pat's lost his brain-to-mouth filter, or just flat-out doesn't care anymore. Which means he should seriously consider retirement.

Pat has always said goofy and irreverent things. He also used this ____ buff/in the buff joke earlier this year with a male contestant and nobody mentioned much about it. Anything wheel related is fodder for clickbait, not sure exactly why. I guess it's widely recognized which will get folks to click on a pointless "news" article about the show.

Clickbait garbage has existed for years and will thrive well past our expiration dates. The idea this is somehow unique to Pat is absurd. The world, good and bad, does not revolve around Pat and Wheel. For exhibit A, kindly check the equally BS articles about how "fans are outraged" over whatever nonsense it is a few complainers say about Mayim Bialik. Or how any random celebrity shocked fans by doing...I don't know, admitting they don't like apples?

Social media is already a cesspool. These kinds of "articles" lacking even a pretense of journalism just harness that cesspool to sell ads for themselves. They're meaningless garbage.

Last season we did not break double digits on the $6,000 Final Spins.   This season, we already had 11 $6,000 Final Spins.   We have less than 38 shows to go in the season.

With 195 episodes per season, and a 1/24 chance of landing on $5,000 wedge on the Final Spin, the expected number of $6,000 Speed-Up rounds is about eight, with a standard deviation of 2.79. The probability of having at least 11 such rounds in a given season is approximately 19.7%.

In laymanís terms, thatís pretty remarkable.
