I haven't seen anything mentioned here yet, but the show's official webpage says to watch this Thursday, April Fool's Day, and find TEN things different at various times during the show.

You can go to http://www.wheeloffortune.com/minisites/aprilfools/ and download a "worksheet," and jot down what you find different.  

This is all just for fun, not a contest.

Is this indeed true?  I thought Sajak was just filling in while Chuck fills in for Michael Reagan on Lingo.

My guesses on  the 4/1 show:

Wheel is only going to use 5,822 colors of light instead of the normal Eleventy Billion?  

Instead of the slide whistle, there will be an audio clip of Merv Griffin saying "OOOooooooohh" when the Bankrupt space is hit.

All players must be holding Pom Poms when they yell out their letters, like a cheerleader.

Pat Sajak finally openly ridicules dumb contestants on their letter choices and wrong answers.

Round 1's puzzle will use the Russian Alphabet, Round 2 will be Greek, Round 3 will be Chinese and Round 4 Japanese.

Pat actually hits a Bankrupt on the Final Spin.

Would those count as April Fools' things? Some of us might think they be best kept there post April 2! Can't be, the *ahem*'s would know that half the stuff they could do on the show tomorrow would end up looking better and/or coming off better than what they have on a regular basis anymore.

Wheel layouts changing/switching places between rounds... Check
Different dollar values like 750, 1500, and... 175 *splooge*... Check
Have players be able to stay on for more than one show so as to reward those who play the game better... Check
Offering up a prize of substantive value that isn't a car or trip... Check
Not edit out the always entertaining (because he humorizes it and doesn't take it too damn seriously) Sajak spinning a BR or LAT... Check
Make use of Vanna more besides being the resident letter touchy-feely gal (even if it was hosting a round or as a resident letter turner gal)... Check

You're kidding me... right?

An april fool's would be more like he flips over the mystery wedge on the final spin and it's $50k per letter.

All contestants pee in their pants because there's 7 friggin T's on the board :)

(the real april fool's is that they left the wedge there after round 3 or they had 2 really, really long rounds and someone keels over from the tossup round).

BTW: I'd dare any wof contestant to buy a "sometimes y" (and really stupid though along with a really puzzled Pat Sajak look). They'd laugh and then the set breaks.
