‘Jeopardy!’ Fans Are Angry After Learning The Show Underpays Its Contestants

Jeopardy! fans are not too happy after they learned that the show underpays its contestants. The show has been around since the 1960s. Even though it has gone through many changes throughout the years, the second and third-place winners still don’t get paid nearly as much money as they accumulate throughout each round. Fans are calling for this to change.

While the second and third-place winners can sometimes accumulate tons of money throughout the show, they still don’t take home that much. The second-place winner often earns $2,000 while third-place gets $1,000, regardless of how much money they earn during the actual show. The only contestant who actually gets all their earnings is the first-place winner.

Fans often take to website Reddit to discuss the show. However, the conversation recently turned sour when fans started talking about Jeopardy! contestant earnings. “… The $1000 third place wins is often just barely enough, or not enough, to cover your expenses of coming to the show,”  one fan writes. They suggest that it’s now time to increase the amount of money that second and third-place winners walk away with. Others agreed with this, noting that they have even less “after taxes.”

Fans in the forum also continued to debate whether points should also convert to dollars or not, since this is how it’s done for the first-place winner. However, one user counter-argues this by saying that if this were the case, the second and third-place winners may not “try as hard” during the rounds, knowing they’ll walk away with their fair share anyway.

This article is from Do You Remember. Click the title to hop over there.

Last Man Standing has officially been renewed for a 9th season and fans are rejoicing everywhere! In light of the news, Tim Allen has opened up on his thoughts about Kaitlyn Dnver leaving the show. He reveals that her departure hit close to home for him as Denver has been part of the show since the beginning.

She transitioned to a recurring role in season 7 when she decided to wanted to work on growing her television and film career. The show ended up having to write her character out of the show by sending her character to the Air Force Academy. The show would then welcome her character back in at random times when Dever’s schedule allowed.

Tim Allen gets candid about how Kaitlyn Dever leaving the show affected him personally

“We had an episode…where we had to change Eve’s [Kaitlyn Dever] room and it reminded me of real life. You know, your kid’s not coming back. They’ll visit, they’re not going anywhere, but they’re not coming back to the bedroom they grew up in. It was really a hard one for me to do based on my oldest daughter, when she left,” Allen reveals.

Allen often channeled his own, real-life experience when playing Mike Baxter on Last Man Standing. Because of this, the sting of Dever leaving the show hurt just as much as it would’ve normally. Additionally, considering how long the show has been running, they’ve had quite a bit of time to form a relationship, so letting go of it all must be bittersweet.

Getting excited for Season 9!

Dever did return for the show’s finale episode of season 8. This episode was not originally supposed to be the season finale episode as the ongoing pandemic put things off for filming. That meant the show had to end at an awkward stage in the middle of the season’s storyline.

Are you excited for Last Man Standing to return to TV screens for season 9? We sure are!

You Can Catch ‘Schoolhouse Rock’ Streaming On Disney+ This June

This article is from Do You Remember. Click the title to hop over there.

  • Schoolhouse Rock comes to Disney+ starting on June 19, 2020
  • The educational animated program features popular, informative songs like “I’m Just A Bill” and more
  • Currently, Disney+ will host the first season of Schoolhouse Rock, but the show has seven seasons in total

 

One trip down memory lane reveals the power of nostalgia. As the world navigates the pandemic, people turn to sources of comfort to offset uncertainty. Fortunately, Disney+ has one new source of nostalgic fun coming up. Later this month, the streaming service shall host Schoolhouse Rock.

The news comes from The Hollywood Reporter. Naturally, it spread with great excitement and anticipation. Since the virus shut everything down, kids found themselves spending school days at home…still learning. Older citizens know the educational power of Schoolhouse Rock and can now share it with their children.

‘Schoolhouse Rock’ is coming to Disney+

After buying numerous big brand names and studios, Disney now really has something for all audiences. But Schoolhouse Rock alone provides a lot for every audience imaginable. First, it attracted older viewers as a childhood staple when it came out in the ’70s. Remarkably, the animated show had enough staying power that it became a classic across multiple decades. Many baby boomers and millennials can recite “I’m Just A Bill” from heart.

But now, it can still become a childhood staple for the youngsters growing up through the pandemic. Schoolhouse Rock gained a name as an educational program with catchy songs and engaging animation that informed on an array of topics. Schooling may have been disrupted by the virus, but Schoolhouse Rock provides parents with a quality, familiar way of engaging their kids in a meaningful way. Those with a Disney+ subscription can watch the first starting on June 19.

This program makes learning fun

Grammar, history, math, government – kids have a lot to learn! But one program covers all of those topics in a way that makes learning fun. The show came during a time needing some fillers between other bigger programs. Whole regular TV specials could get longer slots, typical Schoolhouse Rock episodes reached about a few minutes in length.

The show got seven seasons in total. So far, there is no word on when – or if – Disney shall release any further seasons. But this first season shall include “I’m Just A Bill.” Other catchy numbers like “Conjunction Junction” and “Three Is A Magic Number” appear in the seasons that follow. For now, season one of Schoolhouse Rock joins a lineup of more titles added to Disney’s streaming service. This summer will provide kids a unique way to learn reminiscent of how their parents might have. After all, formulas and processes can be difficult to learn. But as advertising executive David McCall noticed, his son faced none of his usual mathematical hiccups when it came to memorizing Rolling Stones song lyrics. And for those who already heard and learned the material, McCall’s revelation helped lead to a nostalgic treasure just when we need some happiness.

Necco Wafers Making Major Summer Comeback After Main Factory Shut Down

This article is from Do You Remember. Click the title to hop over there.

  • Necco Wafers return to shelves this June
  • They originally disappeared in 2018 after the factory responsible for making them closed
  • Spangler Candy Company bought the brand out of bankruptcy and is launching the Necco Wafer’s comeback to major pharmacies and drug stores

 

Two years ago, the factory responsible for making Necco wafers closed down. Its absence also brought the absence of the colorful circular tablets. This summer, though, expect to see them on shelves again just as stores return to work as well.

New England Confectionery Company launched these divisive treats all the way back in 1847. In 2018, people stopped seeing them altogether when the Revere, Massachusetts factory shut its doors. But this June shall see their return, thanks to Spangler Candy Company. Keep an eye out for this nostalgic treat!

Necco Wafers are returning with everything else

Just as states start to reopen from the coronavirus pandemic, Necco Wafers are returning as well. Two years ago, the factory responsible for making the wafers, based in Revere, Massachusetts, suddenly closed. Apparently, the brand faced bankruptcy, like many big name retailers around it today. But Spangler Candy Company bought the brand out of said bankruptcy. Not only that, but that same company is behind the Necco Wafer revival this summer. Expect to see these on shelves again for the first time in two years starting this June. In particular, they can be found in many major pharmacies and drug stores.

Spangler Candy Company CEO Kirk Vashaw says the timing is fitting. “Just when comfort food is experiencing a resurgence, Necco Wafers is back with that very kind of familiar, comfortable feeling we all seem to be craving,” he stated, adding, “We are delighted to bring Necco Wafers back into production and to share in their sweet return with fans old and new.”

Candy history stretches back decades

The Spangler Candy Company isn’t quite as old as Necco’s rainbow wafers. But it started all the way back in 1906 and made quite a few iconic treats we enjoy today, including candy canes, lollipops, and more. When it eventually absorbed Necco from a private party, it took in even more famous treats, from Candy Hearts, Canada Mints, and, of course, Necco Wafers.

These pastel-colored disks get pretty divisive reception, much like candy hearts. But, overall, Vashaw knows the sentimental value candies can hold. he explained, “We know fans have been waiting anxiously for the return of Necco Wafers and anticipate high demand. Our production lines will continue to run as fast as possible to keep stores in-stock.” When a nostalgic shopper tastes one of these, they shall likely be tasting the same treat from ages ago, as 7 out of 8 variations have the same formula. Chocolate has a whole new cocoa flavor!

Writer and producer Derek Wayne Johnson releases a statement about the documentary. “The documentary is a golden nugget for ‘Rocky’ fans and casual audiences alike,” he says. “It’s a charming piece of film history narrated by Rocky himself, Sylvester Stallone, and will give audiences an intimate, and at times, emotional experience. We’re proud of the film, and audiences can expect new stories and new footage that they’ve never seen before in a blend of director John Avildsen’s home movies, rehearsal footage, and behind-the-scenes footage from the making of the ultimate underdog film.”

This also won’t be the first time that the Rocky franchise is explored deeper than the films. Johnson previously directed the 2017 film John G. Avildsen: King of the Underdogs. The film was about the director behind Rocky and Karate Kid.
