A Wrong! the producer has revealed the show’s secret and apologized for a “terrible mistake” in a recent episode.
On March 9, viewers watching the game show were left frustrated when a clip of the contestants’ final results was shown during host Mayim Bialik’s opening speech.
The moment ruined the entire episode, and now executive producer Michael Davies has revealed why the mistake happened.
Talking about the topic Inside Jeopardy! podcast, Davies said, “Right now, sorry to our entire audience.”
He continued, “We lost it at the top of the show. We made a terrible mistake when we revealed the final score at the end in the opening cut during Mayim’s monologue.
Davies, who offered a rare insight into the show’s production, then said that the show’s opening sequence is often reshot after the game ends, with the cut footage, including the final results of the contestants, replaced with the same footage from the beginning. .
He said that while “restoring the podium points to the original level is standard procedure”, for some reason “it didn’t happen” that day – and no one in post-production caught the mistake.
“It’s a series of mistakes and it’s kind of remarkable that they all happened,” Davies said, but assured viewers that protocols are now in place “to prevent this from happening again.”
He stated: “My thing is always to focus not to focus on what happened and why it happened to punish people. This is what happened and why it happened so we can build a protocol to make sure it doesn’t happen again.”
