My next several blog posts will be picks for the best episodes of this season for all of the TV shows that I currently watch: American Dad!, The Big Bang Theory, The Cleveland Show, Community, Desperate Housewives, Dollhouse, Family Guy, Fringe, Glee, Gossip Girl, How I Met Your Mother, Lost, Modern Family, The Office, Parks and Recreation, Saturday Night Live, The Simpsons, Smallville, 30 Rock, and V. Also, be on the lookout for an in-depth SNL season recap as well as extra coverage of Lost.
Last night’s episode of Celebrity Jeopardy!, featuring Michael McKean, Isaac Mizrahi, and Charles Shaughnessy, was the most competitive episode of Celeb. Jeop. I have ever seen (and indeed one of the most competitive episodes of any version of Jeopardy! ever). The celebrity version of the question-and-answer classic tends to be notoriously slow-moving, but last night there was not a single clue that they did not get to. Each of the daily doubles went to a different contestant. They all went into Final Jeopardy with scores higher than $15,000, and they could all have ended up close to or above $30,000 if not for a slip-up from Charles on an easy Final. Michael just barely set up himself up for the win by moving into the lead on the last clue of Double Jeopardy, which was a Daily Double. The former member of Spinal Tap looks to be the favorite for winning the Million Dollar Celebrity Jeopardy Invitational, which wraps up at the end of this week.
