Jeopardy goes to Washington in a political year. Somehow it seems fitting. At least the people in D.C. are waiting with interest. Tickets for all the tapings are long gone, though a local morning show will raffle off a few this week.
The venerable answer-and-question epic will tape the power player eps on Saturday, the teachers tournament Sunday, and the teen tournament Tuesday and Wednesday. As the screenshot shows, they've started making over the DAR Constitution Hall for Alex and friends. The stage already looks pretty impressive.
In the past I've grumped about all the Jeopardy stunts. Except for the tournament of champions, I doubt that any of the stunts really means much. But it's a way to vary the usual routine, and going on the road lets more fans into the studio audience, anyway.
There's another story out of D.C. with a game show angle, and it's a really odd one. The former exec producer of Cash Cab is agitating for a ban on leaf blowers in the area. I guess everybody has to have a cause.
