Do you yell at TV contestants with the right answer when you watch?

Asked by babaji (1440points) February 27th, 2010

Do you yell at them?
Honestly, if i watch one of those shows, i’m always yelling at them, “You Idiot, that’s not right” or a number of other things.
Do you…“get involved” when/if you watch these Game shows?

Yep, when it’s stupidity to an extreme. @ucme it’s the same in my house during sports! I do yell more for sports, but my husband would be caught red handed if you asked him :)

If I yell loud enough, they sometimes they say the right answer.

Yeah. During Jeopardy or Who Wants to Be a Millionaire?, it’s always “Oh come on! I couldn’t gotten that!”

Yes. But only when sitting in the studio audience.

I used to when I watched those shows. Especially The Price Is Right. I’m a good shopper. I even reckoned to consider the average retail price, when one considers that a can of Liquid Pledge or a 12-count box of Little Debbie snack cakes costs more in LA or NYC than Fayetteville, Arkansas.

“Higher! Higher! THE CORRECT RETAIL PRICE IS HIGHER, YOU DUMBASS!”

“Damn you, you should have bid $1! You’ve been stuck in Contestants’ Row the whole damn show, you dumb shit!”

“Oh! My! GAAAHD! There is no way that that Showcase Showdown is worth $45,000! F’kin idiot!”

Well, yes I do.

I’ve watched “Wheel of Fortune” and “Jeopardy” nearly every weekday my entire life. I was glued to “Jeopardy” during my first birthday party – there’s video evidence!

Of course I scream the answers at the television screen! Heck, every so often, my husband and I keep score, and bet random things on Final Jeopardy.
