Good lord yes, and the 4th most watched syndicated show on TV (behind Judge Judy) with twice as many viewers per show as Dr. Phil and Ellen.

Nice back-pedalling there!

You certainly come off as an expert with your "of course, no way it could be" and the insinuation that the OP didn't know what she had seen (or, at least, you come off as attempting to be an expert). No mention that you were "simply repeating" what you were told in your first post either.

How could it be an old show? The winner on Wednesday was a contestant named Andy. In the mistake Final Jeopardy, Andy is shown as the Jeopardy champion. So unless he's been on more than once and by some strange coincidence that happened to be the old episode they showed, it was a new episode.

Update what exactly? Pretty evident what happened. Someone goofed and ran the wrong thing. What more is there?

I agree. Nothing really to be updated. We all know what happened.

Just updating whether the wrong ending was from an old show, or the next days show........that seems to be the issue in question for some folks still.

I think you're the only one that thinks it is from an old show. But please check with Sony and let us know. Maybe you can call Alex and see what he has to say.

I wouldn't waste your time-there is no question for anyone. Everyone understands it was clearly the next days show. People saw it.

The question is how did a single station get the ending to a future show if the shows are fed "day of".

Tvguy said the stations record the shows at 4am. They play them back later that day. So how did the Orlando(?) station receive and then air Fridays ending on Thursday? THATS the update I want to know.

I understand that. But that doesn't seem to be the question he is looking for an answer to.

Interesting that something like that happened.

That's the update I'd like to know as well. However, that is the question the "expert" wants to know...he's still claiming that the OP is mistaken in what she saw (since won't acknowledge that she did, indeed, see Thursday's show on Wednesday). Anything to avoid admitting he was wrong, I guess.

Somebody goofed? I have to admit I'm chuckling over this whole thread. But not in regards to you....

Well, all the rest of the posters just thought they saw they ending of the next day. They don't know what they were seeing either.

I find it quite interesting that a single episode would be sent each day. A friend acts on soap operas. They film at least 3 weeks in advance, so they have a cushion of shows in case there are problems, and of course, because the actors go on vacations & holidays. And when there was a stagehands strike a couple decades ago, they went into overtime, to film a good couple of months episodes to try to cover how long the strike might last. Of course, filming shows in advance is different from getting them sent on a feed to air each day.

What happens if something happens to the 4am feed? Either the signal cuts out & can't be re-established, there is a weather event like an earthquake, hurricane or natural disaster, like Hurricane Sandy which knocked out power for several days in some areas. So the whole country doesn't get Jeopardy, the 4th most watched syndicated show on TV, until the feed goes back up?

Strange that they wouldn't send out a whole week of shows. Maybe that area of FL, the OP lives in, is the ONE station that gets special treatment, and they get the extra episodes, in case something happens at Sony or where the feed gets sent from.

wait, so if it was an old episode, why would they have had TV spinoffs as the final jeopardy question twice with the same champion...

Because I watched jeopardy the next day.... and the question was TV spinoffs...
