Wheel of Fortune confirms no one is watching CNN
ABC

Posted on 10/04/2003 10:34:32 PM PDT by stephydan

Was anyone else watching Wheel of Fortune Thursday night?

The phrase on the board was completely exposed except for two letters. It looked something like this:

CNN ANCHOR _OL_ BLITZER

What happened next was hilarious. The contestant guessing letters couldn't figure it out and guessed "D". Now that's pretty bad, but it gets worse, the next contestant didn't know what it is either and guessed "S".

After the second person couldn't figure out the puzzle, host Pat Sajak (who has a show on FOX News) chimed in "well, I guess that confirms the ratings!

Saw that-- Sajak's comment was hilarious, but seemed to go by most of the audience.

Pat is a great conservative. A decade ago I went to a dinner for Clarence Thomas, and Pat was one of the featured speakers.

If the missing letters are T and H, this could be referring to Arnold. :)
