    Sadly, the show has been cancelled due declines in viewership.
    I saw a thing on that this past Sunday morning on CBS. I could be mistaken, but I thought they also said that since the show's host has been the one man for the past 50+ years, and he's retiring now, that it also caused the cancelation. They did mention that while it's still popular with older generations (basically, those older than the Millennials) it's viewership is skewing older and older - like almost all TV shows these days.

      I thought the only reason it was cancelled was because he was retiring, in the sense that he's like Carson, Stewart, and Bob Barker combined in that the show literally has no chance to survive without him.

      That being said, I know some Spanish and still have no idea what's going on. Latino variety shows are confusing.

          What's confusing about boobies? I don't think you need any Spanish to understand those shows fully.

              You know, I'm kinda surprised that Celebrity Jeopardy didn't inspire more of that now that I think about it... It's a great way to get the most out of your 30 seconds....

                It might, but remember, they still cut and edit the show.
                Never really developed a taste for tequila. Kind of hard to understand how you make a drink out of something that sharp, inhospitable. Now, bourbon is easy to understand.

                  Yeah, for the Celebrity Show I'll bet they had a lot of "OK (heavy sigh). Let's shoot that again."

                    I enjoyed the first episode of The Bastard Executioner, of course it's the type of show I like, I'm looking forward to BBC's The Last Kingdom as well. I just watched Empire for the most part I enjoyed it, the part I didn't like, all the rap music, is the reason I didn't watch it when it aired originally.

                      I must be slipping. I didn't find Mr. Robot all that compelling.

                        I had Tivo-ed The Making of the Mob and finally got to watch the first episode last night. Enjoying the docu-drama style of the show. Looking forward to the reat of the series (and going they follow up with Chicago as was planned).

                        Have also been watching Sex & Drugs & Rock & Roll. Enjoying it, but I really hope they're doing old age make up on Denis Leary. John Corbett was nailed the aging guitar player character. Love the daughter's voice as well.

                          I've heard Trebek personally hates when people goof off on Final and the production staff specifically discourages it.

                          It's kinda like the occasional chucklehead who gets on The Price is Right and keeps bidding $420.

                            That really happens? That's so dumb.

                            Edit: Looks like it happened only once. By all rights everyone should always do it, from now on.

                              I watched the series premiere of Blindspot last night. The guy playing Spec. Agent Kurt Weller (lead man) needs acting lessons, or the director needs to give the man new direction in how to portray the character. It's one issue or the other, and it's detracting from the entire show. Jaimie Alexander, the lead woman, did all right. NBC is really trying to titillate with obscure shots that hint at nudity, and playing that game could get old fast.

                                Yeah, I love the premise. I think the actress is good. You're right though the leading man leaves much to be desired.
