BAMBOO GROVE (Place) was actually a harder puzzle even though it was solved.

I was even surprised Stacy solved that one.   She was smart with three of her letter picks.   

Why do I have a feeling that they're going to do I BOUGHT A WHOLE BUNCH as Phrase later this season?

I think here's one worse: TAKING A QUICK JAUNT for a future WHAT ARE YOU DOING?

In some past seasons, they had OUTFOX THE COMPETITION for PHRASE and OUTFOXING THE COMPETITION for WHAT ARE YOU DOING.

The only daytime game shows that have a bit of a concept of a "season" are LMAD (Brady) and maybe PYL.

PYL ran new episodes year-round, no? I don't think it had season numbers for that reason. Of course, I could be way off.

Maybe start with the season number, followed by the show? (51-001 would be the season premiere, 51-005 would be the first Friday of the season, 51-021 the second Monday episode). Keep in mind that the concept of a "season" in network daytime television had not yet existed in the '70s, only in syndication. That's why shows like Match Game '7x and daytime Wheel of Fortune is usually divided by year in episode guides. The only daytime game shows that have a bit of a concept of a "season" are LMAD (Brady) and maybe PYL. Even though shows like The New $25,000 Pyramid premiered around the time that typical fall shows in primetime or syndication did, there really isn't a concept of "season numbers" in that version.

Michigan now takes spot no. 2 in the AP top  25. Cincinnati, Alabama and Oklahoma State round out the top 5. Ohio State drops to no. 7.

It somewhat makes sense they went to K after 9995D since K is short for “thousand”, as LitleBulb referred to.  Going to M would’ve been my first thought, but M would infer “million”, which Price isn’t anywhere close to.

How about adding letters, like A001K, or even AAA1K?  That way we can have up to 33,000+ weeks before it has to change again…long after all of us are gone and probably broadcast TV itself.

Or how about just changing the production code entirely?  I would imagine with computer systems now, the show could go to whatever production number scheme they wanted to and not be set in stone like it was when the show first started.

No, it is not about the category choice. Also, BUYING A WHOLE BUNCH isn't quite as hard if you can figure out "a whole bunch". Someone who does so could easily pick G-H-B-U as their letters, and that would fill in most of the first word. BAMBOO GROVE (Place) was actually a harder puzzle even though it was solved.

And the only right-hander to do it

Just also read today that Sir Frank Williams, legendary and iconic F1 team boss, just passed away age 79.  :cry: :-(

I honestly think the puzzles are computer generated. Like, they have a "word bank" and it picks a combination of those words. Living Thing is always ADORABLE... GORGEOUS... BABY... NEWBORN... prefacing the actual animal.

I've noticed this with LIVING THING too.   (although LIVING THING is one of my favorite categories)

We had a tough LIVING THING this week in Bonus Land: FINICKY CATS (on Monday's episode)

Two contestants on Tuesday and Wednesday this week made a fatal mistake picking WHAT ARE YOU DOING for Bonus Land.   (BUYING A WHOLE BUNCH/QUACKING LIKE A DUCK)
