Will I be called? If called, did I help? Hurt? Tune in and see, and wish Andrew retroactive good luck. --Bob

Good to have some BAM-related news around here. Good luck, Andy!

If you were on his PAF list, I'd say the odds are pretty high that you weren't called.

Now, if you went to Vegas to be his +1...

I did, and used the opportunity to audition. --Bob

This is from your taping just after TCONA last August? I'll bet you've been taping your fingers. :P

I thought so. I didn't know his bored name. BTW, it was good seeing you again. Are you going to TCONA again this year?

I was only there last year because of the taping. Absent a taping, I'm skeptical I'll make it this year. --Bob

Can't wait to see how you did, green room buddy!

I'm still (im)patiently waiting for my call...

Now a serious question: Who was the person that called you--your producer, local affiliate, etc? I'm going to be in Japan again the last 2 weeks of March and won't be able to use my phone at all. I might get voicemails when I have WiFi in the hotel, but won't be able to respond to them. I have a sinking feeling that I'll be getting the call when I'm there and will have no way of knowing it, especially since everything WWTBAM-related has happened during or around my international travel schedule.

Kerry, Kyle here (also part of "Water Pipe Burst Class of 2016"). I can't speak for Andrew, but I suspect he got the exact same email I did. No call of any kind, just an email giving us the entire week's schedule of shows and who appears on them. I'm Thursday/Friday, Andrew follows me directly. My guess is that it's a pretty standard practice for them to send out that email every Monday with the week's schedule for 2 weeks from that Monday. Just my $.02.

Now, to somewhat hijack the thread, anyone know of a good place to obtain a digital copy of the show? I can't DVR it, as the St. Louis market never did come to an agreement with Millionaire. So as of now, I have no way to watch my own show (absent driving a little more than an hour to the next market). Really stinks as I own a restaurant/bar, and was planning a big viewing party. Anyone have any thoughts?

Thanks, Kyle! That definitely calms my nerves a little...

I know on J! Board, there are a few members in the Millionaire thread that are willing to tape and upload an archival quality video to a Google Drive. Might be worth a shot checking it out.

It'll be on youtube within a couple of weeks. Someone out there posts a week at a time. I don't know how they get away with it, I can't even post a few minutes of my episode of MSQ without it being taken down.

I can do a transfer from my TiVo to my PC if it's not protected. I've done it before but don't know if it's now protected. I'll check.

If you happen to be recording that week anyways Bob, it'd be immensely appreciated if you could get my episode as well. I don't have any way of capturing it at the moment (maybe I can upgrade after the check arrives).

Henrix77 is correct. I got an email around 4:30EST Monday, and had to reply letting them know I received it. Recognized his name on there didn't want to break any news on his behalf!

I can do both easily. I checked and the shows are still unprotected.

I'll create them in MP4 format which should work on any platform.

Kerry, I was in the same boat when my episodes aired. I spoke with my PA, and she was kind enough to make sure I got a tape of my shows on the same day they aired. Not sure if they will still do that, but its certainly worth asking about. Best of luck (retroactively)!

Total agreement on this. Because I steadfastly avoid political discussion, it is hard to find something to comment on here these days.

Good Luck Andy.

Well, I'll just have to wait and see if I get the email about my air date any time soon. I have no evidence other than my woman's intuition that it's going to air during the last 2 weeks of March when I'm waaaay out of the country. They were really accommodating when I was in Japan around the time I was supposed to tape, so I would hope they would try to help a sister out. At this rate of radio silence from the WWTBAM people, I'm beginning to doubt that I even was on the show and it was just an elaborate Ambien-fueled jet lag dream.
