  1. FJ Coincidence – my wife had MSNBC’s Morning Joe on this morning and Senators Warren and Warner were being interviewed together about the legislation they introduced to safeguard consumer data in the wake of the Equifax breach.

      I am wondering if their co-sponsorship was what led to the creation of that clue. It certainly was a clever one!

  2. I like Gilbert’s response. He came up with a Virginia senator and anagrammed it with someone who actually did run for at least the House. Wrong, but strangely impressive!

  3. Are we going to start 2018 (like 2017) with a long leader-curse?

    And again 6 clues left on the board including a DD in the DJ round for the second day in a row, again a new champ.When will J realize they have a problem with the timing and do something about it? Thousands of bucks left on the board – not to mention a DD in DJ – can and probably does more often than not- turn the outcome of the game upside down.This is unfair to the players and unacceptable. We had a clue or two left once in awhile in the past, but this is becoming the rule now or so it seems.If this keeps on going and altering the outcome of almost each game I doubt that I will watch J much longer. Are the clues too long, is Alex – as much as I like him- slowing down? Are there too many commercials? This is not a random occurrence anymore.

    • I haven’t looked at the recent shows over at, but it does seem as though there are a lot of long clues recently. Something else that eats time are misses, and to a lesser extent, triple stumpers. Also, are they not editing the contestant stories as much as they seemed to be doing before?

      • Not that the Jeopardy team needs defending, but I don’t think that the problem at all. I think the contestants have to bear a large burden. There are way too many triple stumpers – there were 10 today, which slows down everything (I mean, really,
        no one knows Robert
        Redford?) and despite the extensive pre-taping coaching and practice, there are way too many pauses and board scanning before choosing the next question.
        I know it’s frustrating to watch, but hey the folks on stage must know they’re leaving $$ on the table. Let’s move it guys – stop sighing and pick the next clue.

  5. Anagrams are very tough in only 30 seconds.

    • Maybe, but if you know the senators from those two states — it’s only four people — then the answer would be rather obvious.

  6. Julie Adams | January 10, 2018 at 7:33 pm |

    I wonder if these shows were taped before Alex had surgery and was this a factor in clues left behind?

  7. Well it’s part of the strategy now. I like it better this way because everyone is racing against the clock. Still completion, in a different form. Either adapt or die, according to Darwin anyway…

  8. Speaking of unplayed questions, has anybody noticed that ‘Art’ is often the last category people pick on the second Jeopardy board? I’ve noticed that because I love the ‘Art’ category and I hate it when the 1,200 1,600 and 2,000 clues remain untouched at game’s end.
