Ugh, I hate to semi-agree with EB, but in 2013 I went to a taping of Wheel of Fortune in Vegas when they were filming some episodes at the Venetian. It was quite boring



Try being an extra is a movie. Talk
about boring. Making a movie is
the exact opposite of what you see
on screen. Every scene takes forever
to set up and shoot. Hours sometimes,
and you stand around doing nothing.
The stars get trailers to sit in, we
just stood around on the lot.

The Jeopardy taping was fun. I've never really had any desire to see a show taping, but I've been watching Jeopardy since I was a kid and enjoy the show. That's probably the main thing. If you like/dislike the show on TV, the same will apply in person.

So I'd probably kill myself half way through a taping of Big Bang Theory but would have enjoyed a taping of The Simpsons during its peak.

I was never an extra but worked on a movie and have an IMDB credit. Also, my mom was a location scout. It's a good case of something that is what you make of it. You get great food and a lot of downtime. You can read a book, meet new people, or be a sour puss.

Their was actually a couple deifferent versions of that show It was on originally from 1956-1959 with hosts among others Jack Barry,Gene Rayburn and Bill Wendell. In later years, Wink Martindale and Jim Cladwell hosted. They had a champion at one time kind of like James Holzhauer who won on 45 consecutive shows and won $312,750. I believe he was air force if I recall correctly. he made an error in strategy and failed to see a block and his opponent correctly answered the question and defeated him. He didn't miss many questions. Most of this information is from the encyclopedia of tv game shows.

Did anyone else think of Nathan yesterday when a clue mentioned "sacre bleu"?
It's not whether you win or lose; it's whether or not you had a good bet.

Thank you for posting that. I forgot that it was this Wednesday that you are on. I already have the TV set to record all the shows this week.
