I watch it almost every night, but did not watch it the past couple of days. Why did he do that?

It really threw me because he was talking continuously, but 2 seconds later the camera showed him fully trousered. It hit me this morning that it had to be an April fools prank!

Oh, yeah, I guess that would be the answer. :)

Haha…no, I haven’t watched Jeopardy for about 2 years, gosh, I love that show, I had forgotten how much.

He did that during the Ken Jennings days. I wonder if it was a clip thrown in as an April Fool’s prank.

Wow. I hate to be the one to tell you, @stanleybmanly, but you really missed a lot.

** They started with an old shot of Alex coming out without pants, but cut back really quickly
** On the first Daily Double, numbers were mirrored on the contestants’ lecterns
Jeopardy was misspelled Jepardy in the lower left corner during the second segment
** A cameo appearance by IBM’s Watson
** They had some shots where Alex gave the correct response, but looked a decade younger when doing so, with a moustache
** A Daily Double where the full screen was upside-down
** Using Wheel of Fortune sound effects on a Daily Double
** A cameo from Ken Jennings responding “What is turquoise?”
** There was a shot at the start of Final Jeopardy from an international version (Estonia)
** Milton’s wrong answer in Final Jeopardy was met with the Wheel of Fortune Bankrupt sound
