GSN gets the 20th season of Jeopardy!
« on: July 14, 2008, 08:43:45 PM »
Per the PDF Schedules now posted on Buzzer, it looks like GSN is swapping season 18 of Jeopardy! with the 20th season of Jeopardy! But it looks like they will be starting with Kids Week which will be episode 4538.

Does anyone know when they debuted the new set?

November 2002...I believe the 25th; I just remember it being late-November of that year.

Between the J! Archive and it's seperate Season 20 site, GSN is starting in May 2004 - a bit over a month before Ken's reign began.

Episode #4538.  May 5, 2004.

Come to think of it, we're about a month out from Thom on TTD too.  Somehow, I wouldn't even even remotely surprised if that's *not* a coincidence.

Thanks very much, GSN, for skipping the season of my episode. =\ Ugh, I need a new copy of mine. Anyway, the point of watching game show reruns, often times, the thrill of not really knowing what's going to happen? If we've got Ken's season(s), seventy-five episodes are going to be foregone conclusions.

Simultaneous streaks. Very wise. Now, will they promote it or simply expect people to latch on by happenstance?

It will indeed be interesting to compare their streaks as it goes along.  Personally, I'd like to see Thom and Ken go against each other on a game show.

If it were NBC, they'd promote the hell out of it—and spoil the outcome of both shows day after day.

You know what though? I might make it a point to watch Ken's reign again. I know I'll be DVRing each of the Thom TTD eps as well, because there were some great games in there. I enjoy watching those reign episodes more than regular reruns for some reason.

Yes, but I bet a lot more folks will pay attention (see: slight ratings spike) when they see Ken compared to your average set of J! contestants. Whether they know the outcome of the game or not, Ken is arguably the most recognizable J! player of all time.

Ken's fourteenth game.[/quote]
During the chat segment, Alex and Matt talk about Bill Cullen.
Had you been the victor of this game and others, what else was on your tidbit card to discuss, Matt?
