400 SHOWS ON IN 2017

The $400 clue about Famous Women is a PDD for Liz, who has an early score of $1200; Jon has a g-bar less & Sam’s $400 in the red. Here’s the $1K clue for the sole woman on tonight’s panel.

In 1983 she went where no American woman had gone before.

“Who is Sally Ride?” will double her early cushion.

HS:

Jon: $1,600/Sam: $200/Liz: $4,200

The last three screens for the 400 Shows On In ’17 will have to be turned off because those Beeps of Time say so.

SOLE ATTEMPTED TS: $200 (400 Shows On In ’17- both guys left off the 2nd word of “The Celebrity Apprentice”)
UNATTEMPTED LT: $4K
TOTAL LT: $4200

CS:

Jon: $4,200/Sam: $2,400/Liz: $4,600

DJ!:
OPERA & BALLET
U.S. BODIES OF WATER
BACK TO “BACK TO THE FUTURE”
LIFE
LIBERTY
THE PURSUIT OF HAPPINESS

Sam rips right into the middle of Liberty & the $1600 clue there (& 2nd pick this rd.) prompts him to go for a TDD just after stepping up to $3600.

On Christmas Day 1989 in this city, Leonard Bernstein changed the “Ode to Joy” into an “Ode to Freedom”.

“What is Berlin?”…makes him the new 1st-placer. Later, w/ $18,600, this game’s Jon’s to lose when DD #2 finds its way onto the $1600 Opera & Ballet answer, as Sam has $8K & Liz’s $200 behind the other challenger. Jon makes the $5 minimum bet.

In a ballet, Odette’s mother’s tears produced this body of water.

“What is ‘I’m glad I wagered $5’?”– thanks for making me laugh! For the record, the right response was what was Swan Lake? And Sam dives by $2K at rd.’s conclusion.

ATTEMPTED LT: $4400
SOLE UNATTEMPTED TS: $1200 (U.S. Bodies of Water)
TOTAL DJ! LT: $5600

CHALLENGER CORYATS:
Sam: $4K
Liz: $7K

FJ! #185: ANCIENT AUTHORS

His famous work culminated in accounts of Xerxes’ invasion & Greek victories at Salamis & Plataea.

SAM: “Who is Herodotus?” = $9,428
LIZ: “Who is Thucydides?” = $3.5K
JON: “Who is Homer?” = $18,590
