    Unfortunately, the final Jeopardy question last night was shown just before the commercial break to be on “Geography in the News”, but when they
    came back from the break, the final question was entirely different, being one from 10/21/2014 on “the 18th Century”, dealing with Souchang (Tea)
    and the Boston Tea Party. This mishap I had not seen before. Somehow KJAR/KAJ in Missoula (about 130 miles south of here) slipped in the
    wrong clip. I’m sure they’ll get complaints. Thank you for supplying the final question.

    I actually saw that whole Aaron Spelling category last night at around 10:30 pm. on Jeopardy!’s Twitter account and since it was the last category in Double Jeopardy!, you could see that Liz had a runaway. Obviously, it was a mistake and they took it down. I wonder if they will put it back up later or tomorrow.

    Here’s a link to 10 clues from this game

      That was weird (AS category on Twitter).

      Although not at all difficult, I was impressed with the triple-solve FJ. Sometime in April, there was a Central America category that totally bombed.

        Still I was surprised that Trebek made that remark “What we discovered about a month ago on our program was that many people in the United States do not know much about Central America” before revealing the answers. First of all, you’re right — the Central American Capitals category was on April 13th. Secondly, there was another one back on April 10, 2014 where 4 out of 5 clues in a Central America category went unanswered. It’s an April thing, Alex. In June, many people know. :):)

        Also, they missed 4 out of 5 in the Earth Science category today. I shudder to think what he would have said if the FJ category had been something similar.:0 LOL!

          Wow! I went to let a friend in during the think music and missed the remark. Well, I shudder to think what he thinks about American’s knowledge of Canada.

          “It’s an April thing, Alex. ” LOL.

    Well, the only other countries bordering Mexico are the U. S. and Belize, so it was not that difficult. Unless you fall for the “Donald Trump trick” and think to say U. S., of course.
    By the way, what type of category is “Tough Aaron Spelling Women”?
