Jeremiah loves to watch Jeopardy. He loves it so much that he records it everyday (DVR is a great invention) and we try to watch it before we head off to dreamland. I thought it was kind of corny at first, recording it and then watching it together. But it's kind of fun.
Jeremiah is very intelligent academically and I seem to be pretty current on pop-culture - we generally answer about the same number of questions. One thing we didn't expect to happen was a silly contest that has little to do with the game. We noticed that each day, after Final Jeopardy, the commercials always seem to be the same ("promotional consideration provided by...") Now when Jeopardy is over, we pause it and guess what commercials will be next. The most recent advertisements include RenewIn, Gold Bond foot powder, denture adhesive, Aspercream and Icy hot. (That alone should tell us that we are not the demographic targeted by those at Jeopardy.) Every once in a while we're surprised by some other ad that we just didn't see coming!
As I said, it's kind of silly, but the night hardly seems complete without it. Besides, if you can't be silly with your spouse, who else is there?
