Made a fortune doing very little. Sajak is not an American name. Only in America can someone become successful (wealthy) hosting a game show. You would think that such a person would be grateful and at the very least, not support insurrection. Why so bitter?

I watch this game show. The sound of the wheel irritates. If a contestant pronounces the word vowel as "vow-wool" two syllables, I turn the television off.

Pat is so sick and tired of Wheel. He has such a dead inside character to him in recent years. Seacrest is going to be lame. I don’t think “Wheel” is long for this world in its current incarnation. It’s old, stale and boring.

It's one thing to have been a Republican in the past, but to be a full-on MAGA supporter is a big disappointment. He's lucky his career is almost over and that it's too late to harm his reputation.

. Who cares what his politics are as it never comes up on the show. You’d have to be heavily invested in him to now or care.. I’m just not. Wheel is probably one of those shows with a large following of Trump supporters as the audience seems old and rural. He’s an excellent host of a dumb show. We’ll see if it survives after him.

However, I loved its crassest early years when you had to choose home furnishings (including porcelain Dalmatians!) after you won money.

Obviously Pat's daughter will be 'introduced slowly' through Ryan's likely one season. This could be good in the sense that Vanna and Pat's daughter will ultimately clash, and Vanna will be replaced by a himbo.

Angry Black Woman is a invective used against that population.

But the blacks have a reason or two to be angry.

What is his problem?

A below average looking man, short of stature and of limited talent made millions of dollars in American money, for doing little. Merely hosting a banal game show.

Has life been unfair. For him? He is mad because others" took away opportunities from him that were his birthright?

So, Pat has done 9 stage productions with this guy, Joe Moore? I wonder if they were a couple when younger?

Sajak is set to reunite with his longtime friend and KHON-TV Hawaii newscaster Joe Moore for a stage production of Prescription: Murder. Rob Duval will direct the play, originally penned by William Link and Richard Levinson, who later adapted the plot into the pilot episode of NBC's hit detective series Columbo. The show, which ran for 10 seasons, followed a Los Angeles homicide detective who used a humble approach and keen eye to solve complex crimes.

Prescription: Murder marks the ninth time that Sajak and Moore have shared the stage. They first joined forces in 1993 for Moore’s original play Prophecy and Honor, with their later productions including The Odd Couple in 2001, The Honeymooners in 2004, The Boys in Autumn in 2010, Wrestling Ernest Hemingway in 2014, Dial M for Murder in 2018 and, most recently, 2023’s The Sunshine Boys.

I read “Vanna Speaks” about twenty years ago and she didn’t have a hell of a lot to say. Mostly boo hoos about the death of her mom and how she turned to crochet to cope.

Wheel under Ryan Seacrest will probably enjoy as much popularity as Price Is Right under Drew Carey (which for all I know might be doing as well or better than it performed under Bob Barker). I find the bleak solitude of a crossword puzzle in my cubicle on a rainy Tuesday morning more compelling than the most riveting installment of Wheel.

I'm hoping Seacrest makes it more fun. For as exciting as this style of show is, (games of chance/ risk), the presentation is BORING. Wheel has a special week where they feature clips from the international versions, and those versions have contestants jumping around excited, it's a contrast to the US contestants who have to fucking stand in one place like they're on Jeopardy! I will say that I've noticed the contestants vocally rooting for each other more, and the studio audience has been really rambunctious lately. They had a final puzzle recently that the constant didn't solve, and when the letters all came up afterwards, the audience booed! 🤣🤣 Seacrest will be good and probably bring more of that chaotic studio energy back. He's handled plenty hosting American Idol for how many years. He knows what to do, and I think him & Vanna will be great together.

Seacrest is a eunuch and they only hired him because he's just as ugly and bland as say Jack was and he won't confuse the elderly and mentally challenged who watch the show every day.
