Derp. I changed Tags to Roo but didn't erase the rest of the sentence. Apologies...

I concur, the contestants heading to the center asterisk going right into the prize reveal was a bit jarring. It was the first episode taped though as others have said, so it's not that much of a big deal. Glad it was changed back though.

- Great win in Roo, falsitis was there but luckily minor.
- Shopping Spree was fantastic, sorta obvious it was the knives.
- Car is usually under #6 in Buck, nice little psych there as I never woulda guessed 5, heh

This really didn't feel like a show where almost nothing was won.  Drew kept everything moving even when poor Sheila lost Range Game by 10 bucks.

I was surprised they offered a trip to Mexico in the Showcase.

Six episodes in and we already have a PG shutout...yikes.

Scratch that, itís actually a 1.

Dude, did you even watch the show?  This was a fun episode.

If you're going to base your comments entirely around how much was won, you don't need to post.  You really don't need to post again to act extra disgusted by adding COLOR! to your rating.
I agree that it would've been fitting to have had Alex's final episode air on Christmas.  However, I do like how it'll be delayed until 2021 (not pushed back into February sweeps but right after the holidays).  As mentioned, the annual NBA quintuple header for Christmas Day would impact several people.  Plus, Christmas Eve occupied with their (and other families') last minute stuff, Church, dinner, etc.

I wasn't sure if they would've held off starting production until Season 38, but that's way too much of Season 37 to void.  Chances are that a permanent replacement will not be made official until next fall.  I don't have a problem with Ken as host.  I think it makes the most sense to have Jeopardy start with Jennings.  Given the struggles with getting a permanent host for TPIR and Family Feud that worked, I think Jeopardy will be okay going forward with their final decision.  If not, they could get someone else, but at the end of the day, they'll get someone that, while not as great as Trebek, will be the man or woman slated to become the face of Jeopardy for years to come

Cashews in Bag were tough, I know they're expensive but $8.49? Que??? Same with Math, 65 inch is usually cheap but maybe it was because OLED or something. Double Prices however, was winnable, at least in my opinion. Oh well. One of the more lackluster shows we've had in a while.

Still loving the redesigned Master Key though.
Nice to see the show getting back to studio and getting started on its next era. As much as we'll miss Alex, it's exciting to see how Ken will do hosting and who the other interim hosts will be and who ultimately gets the job.

It would've been fitting for Alex's final episode to air on Christmas day but with the possible preemptions the week of Christmas and New Years it makes sense to hold off on his last week until after the holidays.
I mean, if Ken is already reading clues, it makes logical sense to expand that from 5 clues in a show to 61. The hiring at the beginning of the season smacked of contingency and here it is. Something that folks might not know is that Ken is involved with quiz bowl and has read games at some previous national finals. I trust his abilities here and hope his demeanor comes across well on camera.

I wouldn't be surprised to see Jimmy get a shot at having his hosting televised. He traditionally hosts the rehearsal games.

Given Mike's aspirations and experience, I also wouldn't be surprised to see him take a turn behind the lectern.

They have not aired all of PYL's episodes. They had 13 recorded and have only aired eight. Disappointed that they've decided to hold them over like they do with Match Game, but I suspect a fear of not being able to record a new season in the spring for the summer is the motivating factor behind holding this and Pyramid.
I like Ken Jennings as a player, as a Clue Crew replacement, and as a Jeopardy! brand ambassador, and it was smart to bring him on as a production assistant

I'm very uneasy with Ken as a potential host--he's going to be very polarizing

Alex is going to be near-impossible to replace, and I hope that this is a way to ease into the host search by starting with a familiar face that most people closely associate with Alex, but I'd be much more comfortable with a Mina Kimes or Pat Kiernan-ish character
