  1. I really have no confidence in how tonight’s Wheel episode will play out. Maybe tonight’s TPiR primetime special could salvage this day (and maybe week). Or could things really take a turn for the worse?


  2. All I know Skipps is…this game show week is really headed South. Better on our DDs, but not enough to prevent a Cardinal Sinner. At least Jennings’ 3xS sweep in F! now won’t happen.

    Rating – same as Skipps’ (Losing Show, and indeed a losing week for returning champs)…BUT don’t write off this week yet, folks—we need all our remaining shows (incl. tomorrow’s C-edition) to win in order to salvage our week here.

    Meanwhile, on to WOF!
