  1. @Andy
    The J6! questions are updated here in HI at EXACTLY 22:06 daily, so that would be 03:06 the next day EST. Noon EST would be 07:00 HST, but my cable company shows them the evening before the game, e.g. the J6! clues for the Wednesday game will be up already at 22:06 TUESDAY HST. about 18 1/2 hours before the game airs (16:30 HST Wednesday). I guess once something is posted the cable companies can switch as they like?! The strangest thing are the 6 minutes after the hour, ON THE SECOND!😉 Or I guess jeopardy.com follows a different schedule?
