Wheel of Fortune season 38 debuts 9/14/2020
« on: September 10, 2020, 01:18:14 AM »
Wheel of Fortune is poised to make its debut for season 38 next Monday, September 14, 2020.

Some small changes have been made to accommodate COVID-19, including a personal "spinning cap" for contestants to use to avoid directly touching the spokes of the wheel. Article (and photo below) from TVLine.com:

Doesn't look like there's any changes to the wheel layout, not that I was expecting any.

They're all $650 spaces now.

There are letters on the floor. They spell "NOPE".

Worth noting - Sony is now claiming that "Something happens within the first two weeks of shows that has never happened before in the history of the show."

Any guesses?
Tricia stared at them.

"That must be very boring, isn't it?" she blurted out.

"Yes."

"So why..."

"Except..."

"Yes? Except what?"

"Game shows. We quite like game shows."

I was going to say that the word "condom" is uttered on the show for the first time by a contestant when referring to the "white thing", but I think this guess is a lot more plausible. I'm not sure that's ever happened before.

Considering the triple toss-up puzzles have something in common in addition to the category, that the most likely place that could happen.

Can't recall the source, but I've read that the signaling devices aren't activated until the first letter goes on the board, thus "no-lettering" a Toss-Up would be impossible. Soonest they could be solved is on the first letter (which has been done).

Still crazy after all these years...but that's okay.

I remember one early prize puzzle was CHECK YOUR LOCAL LISTINGS and the prize was a Sony home theater package.
