Long-Lived Mistake

Nine minutes into Tuesday's episode, Trebek, whose principal responsibility is to read from a card, read the clue "A SHORT-LIVED CRAZE," pronouncing "LIVED" phonetically as "laivd" (as in rhymes with "jived"). "This could be evidence of decline in Trebek's mental capacity," an almost-certified speech-language pathologist posited. "It reveals a deficit in his orthographic input lexicon, causing him to resort to the orthography-to-phonology conversion route to read."

Johnny Gilbert? Nobody, but Nobody, Sees the Wizard of Oz...until now!

In an unprecedented move, Jeopardy! cameras focused on perennial announcer Johnny Gilbert during the waning moments of Monday's Jeopardy. Johnny was spotted in his little canary cage, perched aside the Jeopardy! studio set, from whence his divine voice radiates every night with a preamble on par with "We, the People" - THIS IS JEOPARDY!

Johnny G., however, seemed to lose his cool. While his tanned, Reagen-esque face is all smiles, he manages to mutter between his teeth a not so veiled threat to the cameraman: "What the hell are you doing here?" But before the camera can pan out further to reveal Elvis Presley playing Connect Four with Hosni Mubarak, the scene reverts back to Alex and his threesome at center stage. 'Twas a night to remember.

Israel Defeats Watson on Jeopardy!

Yes, it’s true. Watson, the super-computer designed by IBM that walloped Jeopardy!’s most celebrated competitors over three days in February, lost to an Israeli trio in a quiz show event organizers billed “The Trivia Brawl at the Wall” at the Wailing Wall on Thursday in Jerusalem’s Old City.
