Lost on Jeopardy

Double Jeopardy, category is "Elvi"
Clue: "This rocker's backing band on 1977's 'My Aim is True' included members of The News, of Huey Lewis fame".

None of the 3 contestants even buzzed in.

Seriously?

Re: Elvis & The Sugarcanes, Atlanta (GA), April 26, 2010

Is the whole show general admission or just the floor? The few times I've been to the Tabernacle the floor is GA, while the balconies are assigned seating. Looks like only GA tickets are available for the presale. I'm going to wait till the regular sale tomorrow and see if I can get a good balcony s...

I find the complaints about the sound quality completely mystifying because the main album has not been remastered for the new release. It should sound exactly the same as the Rhino CD — and my copy, at least, does sound exactly the same. They also look the same when I compare the files with a wa...

Jon Stewart said something about the happenings during the commercial breaks would be available on comedycentral.com (or did he say iTunes?),...
