Our #JeopardyLivePanel Quarterfinal Review & Semifinal Preview will be taking place tomorrow night at 9:15 PM! Joining us, among others, are scheduled to be Dan Feitel and Kristin Sausville!

Michael Bilow
Scott Lord
Alex Jacob

It was a pretty heavy day out in the world, to say the least. Obviously, some people still feel they need their half-hour escape, leading to situations like this one:

It’s not easy working at a TV station today!

Meanwhile, the opening, with J! leaving in comments about “the greys and the blacks” (referring to hair), led to the following:

The FALLING OFF A LOG category was an all-insect video category. I’m with Keith on this one:

Michael’s shot at a True Daily Double early on in Double Jeopardy didn’t quite pan out for him – but I, for one, applaud his aggression!

More thoughts: It appears as though, for the quarterfinals, the writers might have gone slightly easier than normal ToC level for the main games, but slightly harder than normal for Final Jeopardy. There wasn’t a significant amount of movement in Final Jeopardy this week; I’m guessing that was because most players were above their wildcard threshold. For some, that worked. For others, it didn’t.

But we have ourselves 9 semifinalists! Tune into the Live Panel on November 14 at 9:15 PM Eastern, and then catch the semifinals starting on Monday!
