    Just watched the first show of the new season and they did not show the spin I’d. Are they not doing it anymore? Sally W.

    When does new season for wheel of fortune and jeopardy begin?

  3. WTD says:

    Who cares? Whilst I do enjoy watching Jeopardy, even though it is the No. 2 game show in syndication in terms of average viewership, I cannot wait for Wheel Of Fortune to end once and for all, and it will when the time comes. Wheel Of Fortune is not the popular game show it once was in its heyday. Not enough contest and too much dog-and-pony show content featuring Pat Sajak and Vanna White.

    Oh yippee, more footage of Pat and Vanna shopping in Beverly Hills with lil Pat carrying her shopping bags around; or perhaps more of them trying to ‘hula’….ah yes, and more of them para-sailing, — No longer a ‘game’ show… Just less contest and more ‘Adventures of Pat and Vanna’….
