Big Show Fall TV Game Show Preview Featuring Jason Block

Monday, September 14th

Our game show expert Jason Block joined us to preview the fall TV game show season!

We start off with two of TV's biggest game shows: Jeopardy! & Wheel of Fortune

Both seasons were just cut short due to Covid & Jason points out there's a new Producer Mike Richards taking the helm of both shows.

Both shows have re-designed sets for social distancing and are not taping in front of audiences.

Jason is curious to see how KEN JENNINGS is incorporated, he was brought in as consulting producer for Jeopardy (with no traveling for Clue Crew, he's going to be a category reader).

Is Ken on board for a test run to be the potential Alex Trebek replacement? We will find out soon!

Jason also runs though other shows coming back soon or working on it, here are some of his notes:
Family Feud is taping in Atlanta with social distanced podiums
25 Words or Less has Meredith Vieira working on the East Coast (in her home) and the contestants are shooting in LA.
Big Brother All-Stars were in Quarantine for two weeks.
No words as to when Price is Right and Lets Make A Deal will start up again due to their heavily audience based participation.

Listen for more of our TV game show preview along with some reality show banter mixed in, like Carole Baskin competing on DWTS!
