Sorry for the delay in posting this – I’m still recovering from the disaster known as 500 Questions.The Final Wager – May 20, 2015

Man, I thought 500 Questions was going to be a good show. And while I’ll reserve judgment for a few more nights, I’m already sick of Richard Quest. (Seriously, dude, do you have to dance around like a conjurer while the contestant struggles to respond?)

Quick poll: Will 500 Questions be a ratings success?

    No: by next week, ABC will have egg on its face. (40%, 17 Votes)

    Sort of: it won't be outstanding, but it will get another run. (52%, 22 Votes)

    Yes: it will be a phenomenon, like Millionaire in 2002. (7%, 3 Votes)

Total Voters: 42

Anyway, there was also a Jeopardy! game tonight – a match that offered nearly 20 more questions than did the “fast-paced” 500 Questions in half the time. And this is weird, but Andrew is in the lead – and has it locked up.

Andrew has now won 5 games and $96,599, just a hair above Kristin Sausville.

I wonder if Alex Trebek had Ben in mind when he called people using the Forrest Bounce without the knowledge to back it up “dickweeds” on Howard Stern?

THE “N” IN THE I.N.R.I. WRITTEN ON THE CHRISTIAN CROSS REFERS TO THIS PLACE
