As much as I hate to say it, I'm very happy with the Ultimate TOC -- I mean Bob Harris has played and won (and also was a PAF for 250K on Millionaire the night after)... and Forrest is yet to play.

Yeah, it's a ratings stunt, but I'm all nostalgic. Too bad BABU~! didn't advance. Hearing Alex call on him all the time is classic.

It's definitely a shameless ratings stunt. However, as shameless ratings stunts go, this one's pretty good.

Any chance that The W's own Teapot was involved in the proceddings?

I'm shocked how badly they are doing on Final Jeopardy. The last two people to advance did so because they didn't lose as much as the leader going into that round. It's allegedly the ultimate tournament, and *I* am screaming the answer to these six numbskulls.

Same thing happened with Babu; he lost more then the person in second place after they both got the question wrong (on a very picky call by Alex, no less; I've seen him accept similar answers if he could follow the gist of the handwriting).

"All's Quiet on the Western Front" seems to be in the same class as "A Midsummer's Night's Dream," which people use as their answer on the show frequently, and that's always ruled incorrect.

I'm loving this tournament because not only do I get to see some of the old champions that I remember, but also the champions whom I'm familiar with online but don't have a face to put with the name, like Eugene Finerman, Doug Lach, Rob Slaven, Bob Fleenor, etc.
