Well then. Actually going in numerical order from top to bottom this time would have worked. Credit where it's due, that is an unusual gambit.

Had a feeling the accessories were a trap this time...

Both Michael and Kevin are in danger of banishment, and at least one of them will be, but one of them can still save themselves from ignominy -- and Kevin has the advantage. Let's see what comes of this...

What a weird day, winnings-wise...
Quick programming note: I have on my schedule that tomorrow is a Grandparents' Special. See you then...

3 comments:

  1. Actually, tomorrow's TPIR episode is a rerun of the May 2013 Firefighters episode, the Grandparents episode is rescheduled for January 2, 2014.

    1. I almost hope it has been. After the day I've had, I could do with the long weekend...

  2. According to PIR.com, tomorrow's Grandparents Special has been replaced by a repeat of last season's Firefighters Special. The Grandparents Special has subsequently been moved to Jan. 2. No reason given for the change, and frankly none come to mind. However, CBS.com still has the special airing tomorrow.

    So...it'll be fun to see who was right, the network or the show.
