Jeopardy is dead to me

There actually was a category where you had to rearrange the words in a saying to get the saying. The shark has been jumped.

It's been dead to me for a while, for obvious reasons. The only time I've watched an episode was to gamble on it. And I still didn't enjoy it.

As soon as Alex got those huge glasses, I knew the series was doomed. No game shows are good anymore.

I don't think 1 vs. 100 is but so bad. Sometimes they have weord questions, but its generally pretty good.

I've never even heard of that. Perhaps it's not in MN. *checks out on Wiki*

I remember when Millionaire was all right, but now all they do is tell sappy life stories of sub-par contestants.
