Get rid of the puns.

Like 80% of the questions (er, answers I guess) are stuff that could be hard except it's just an obvious pun.

I'm assuming "suck it Trebek" is also not on the list.

How about just get rid of them instead, no one cares and it's a waste of time.

Get rid of him. He is such a douche. Honestly love the show, but can't stand the guy and his stupid pronunciation.

Well, call me a bit of a traditionalist if you want, but it seems to me there wouldn't be much of a show without contestants.
 
2012-08-27 12:10:03 PM  
Just wait a couple years. When Trebek retires, lists like this will just be some obsessed nutjob yelling BRING BACK ALEX TREBEK! THE SHOW WAS PERFECT WHEN HE HOSTED IT! HIS MUSTACHE HELD THE CURE FOR AIDS!

'Throw away Trebek's razors" doesn't seem to be on that list. It's all a bunch of inconsequential tripe that this person could avoid by not watching game shows.
 
2012-08-27 12:24:39 PM  
Add one more contestant, and make it like "Chopped" or "Sweet Genius" (with the worst contestant eliminated after each round). That way, Final Jeopardy will be between the two best people in a winner-take all showdown.
 
2012-08-27 12:29:36 PM  
Give contestants the option of appearing in funny hats and signing in with funny names.

I love how Trebek is an enormous cock. Jeopardy wouldn't be Jeopardy without his obscenely arrogant french bits. Love him.

Throw in oil rasslin' for Final Jeopardy, and I'm in!

/like the way you think

1. Make Contestants Tell Better Anecdotes.
Yes. All women must tell stories of three ways and/or first lesbo experience or fantasies. Lacking that, first time someone got to second base with them.

2. Jeopardy! Prison Edition.
This could be fun. Take the minor non-violent offenders. Instead of money, each question is wagered in years. So lifers would have no point in playing. Those on death row can either take the years won towards delaying their execution or moving it forward, their choice. Winners successfully reduce their sentence. Those who clearly suck at the game add years to their sentence. "Jack, you were here for a three year sentence for grand theft auto. You finished Double Jeopardy in the negative, so you are here for an additional one hundred years."

3. Jeopardy! College Edition for Poorly Ranked Schools.
Better to see the winning poorly ranked school go against the winning Ivy League school. My money is on the poorly ranked school over Harvard.

4. Give contestants "RSTLNE" in every question.
I'd rather see the removal of some categories. Like 'The Bible'. If you're a Pagan and you're on the show and a category is 'The Bible', there is a category that you're not going to know anything about. Same with Sports.

5. Response must be in the form of an incredulous, snarky reply.
I'd expand that to be that, or in a variety of other ways: Chandler from Friends "What ARE the Visigoths, Alex." your best Shatner impression, or the 11th Doctor "What are bowlers, Alex, bowlers are cool."

6. Allow heckling.
Yes

7. Jeopardy! The Reality Show
NO

9. Mixed Martial Arts edition.
I was actually thinking the Double Dare physical challenge. But we could combine this. "John, you found the daily double. You can either answer the daily double in the category of '2011 Tax Regulations changes from 2011' making it a true daily double by wagering everything, or you can wager any amount of money by facing this two time title belt winner in this cage for three minutes."

10. Allow contestants to Put Their Mortgages up for Daily Double and Final Jeopardy
Or student loans, car loans, etc...
 
2012-08-27 01:15:40 PM  
I remember a Stand-up Stand-up that pieced together comedians comparing Wheel of Fortune and Jeopardy.

quite a long time ago

Congratulations! You have invented "Win Ben Stein's Money!"

/Ben kicked my ass, hard.
 
2012-08-27 01:29:22 PM  
I still insist that to really make it hard, the "answers" have to be grammatically correct.

"What is Bill Clinton" would be wrong, for example. "WHO is Bill Clinton" would be right.

"Who is Richard Nixon" would be wrong. "Who WAS Richard Nixon" would be right.

THAT'd be awesome to watch.

That

I guess it's supposed to make them look well rounded and not just robots that memorize shiat, but more often than not, it just makes them seem even less human.
 
2012-08-27 02:44:37 PM  
More like the top 1 way to make a shiatty, last-minute, top 10 list.
 
2012-08-27 02:50:19 PM  
Or just make your own damn show dipshiat.

Politicians week would be fun tho.
 
2012-08-27 03:02:38 PM  
the way to fix jeopardy is the exact same way to fix nfl football.

1) steroids mandatory.
2) winner or winning team eats the losers.

OldManDownDRoad: 1. Electric shocks for wrong answers


This is also on my mind.
 
2012-08-27 03:31:38 PM  
Buddha, yes for #1. Do they run those tidbits past anyone first? Does it sound good in their heads ahead of time. But, I do love the Trebek "awkward" look.

Take #3 & make it into a drinking game... for the contestants, as they are playing. I'm sure they will be familiar with the rules.

And #5 & 6 I already do at home. Having 4 generations of my family in one room playing is not for the weak-hearted or sane.
 
2012-08-27 04:23:12 PM  
I put Jeopardy on the DVR because I can fast forward past the contestants' stories.
