  1. whoa! First!

  2. I'm going to miss him. Mike Richards better not mess up the show when he takes over. I'm not a fan of Richards' previous work, especially 'Weakest Link'.

  3. Did Harry Friedman hate being on wheel and jeopardy which is why he’s leaving?

  4. Where’s Vanna’s Name on the Star of the Sidewalk Star?

  5. Great to see peter in the crowd. Did harry write the rules for him?
