Patriots tight end and erotica protagonist Rob Gronkowski appeared last night on ABC’s Family Feud with three of his brothers and his dad, facing off against Holly Robinson Peete’s family. It did not go well for the Gronks.
When it comes to famous wrong Final Jeopardy! responses, most people think Cliff Clavin. But tonight’s Jeopardy! champion, Choyon Manjrekar, made his bid for infamy with a tremendous response to a clue that stumped all three contestants:
Nightmarish, perverted furry Clark the Cub is still struggling to catch on among piss-soaked Wrigley fans—and trivia nerds, apparently, as none of the three competitors tonight on Jeopardy! were able to respond correctly when prompted to name the team Clark represents during the Final Jeopardy! round. Perhaps Alex…
In January, CBS acquired the rights to air NFL Network's Thursday Night Football through the first half of the season. That slate turned out to be some of the shittiest professional football ever put on television, and it was a financial catastrophe for the Tiffany network. But prime-time national NFL broadcasts…
For someone who spends an inordinate percentage of his waking life staring at screens, I don't watch a lot of television. What a lot of folks consider to be a godsend—the so-called Golden Age of TV—is to me more of a pain in the ass: Just how many shows am I expected to watch? Also, no matter how many great shows…
"Name something that might be fully loaded."
Today's episode of Jeopardy! featured a category of famous rap lyrics. So here's video of Alex Trebek rapping famous lyrics, featuring the words of Dr. Dre, Public Enemy, and Biggie.
Oh, this poor, poor, well-dressed man.
It's Jeopardy! Kids Week, which is heartrending enough with the amount of pressure put on small children—there's more than a little bit of the Roman Arena in tuning in to watch tiny dreams be crushed. But last night's Final Jeopardy was a shitshow from top to bottom.
How many of these answers from tonight's Jeopardy! can you get? All of them, probably.
A $1 million prize was added to Wheel of Fortune in 2008, but it's only been won once since then, because it's really freaking hard to do.
Everyone is rightly lauding Leonard Cooper, the winner of the Jeopardy Teen Tournament, as America's coolest high schooler. When Final Jeopardy came around, Leonard didn't know the answer. So he wrote something much better. He wrote,
And now I'm going to tell you exactly how to get onto The Price Is Right.
You can thank CBS for bringing together two things you probably haven't thought about in nearly a decade: Survivor and Surly Former Second Baseman Jeff Kent™. The show has already filmed, and Kent is back from the Philippines, but since it doesn't premier until next week Kent can't talk about what went down, or how…
Poor Josh DeFamio, graphics supervisor of the Arizona Diamondbacks. He was on MLB Network's Baseball IQ—a show in which teams' employees compete to win money for charity—last night, ready to advance to the finals to face off against Mets statistician Ben Baumer. All he has to do is name 10 of the 19 baseball Hall of…
If it's Monday, it means a sex reference on a game show. After last week's Donkey Punch incident on Jeopardy!, we present to you an answer nobody guessed to the Family Feud question (okay, the clues on that show are actually imperatives) "Name something an airline pilot might be holding on a long flight."
Radio/TV personality and ESPN gadfly Dan Patrick guest-hosted a category in the first round of last night's episode of Jeopardy!, and as is S.O.P. for all sports categories on the quiz show, contestants avoided it—choosing categories like "Corruption Junction" and "This Landfill Is My Landfill" instead.
Up until a few weeks before this 1977 appearance on The Match Game, awesomely-jacketed Brian Billick "was playing professional football."
