On Twitter, Buzzy Cohen wrote, “I don’t usually get political on here, but isn’t amazing that there are these… these pairs that appear: Vermont & New Hampshire; Arizona & New Mexico; Jeopardy! & Wheel of Fortune…”

When you take the states mentioned by Buzzy on Twitter, it is easy to see how someone might think he is being negative. Because each of the states is side by side, many people associate them with each other. Vermont and New Hampshire, for example, are very different politically. The same can be said of Arizona and New Mexico.
Some people may argue the politics of one place is better than the other. As Buzzy said, he doesn’t usually get political, but the thing he mentioned was Jeopardy! and Wheel of Fortune. Many fans took this to mean he was throwing shade at the other game show.
Like other television shows that air back-to-back, viewers have come to associate Jeopardy! and Wheel of Fortune with each other. To fans, it seemed like Buzzy was throwing some shade by saying that Jeopardy! should be ashamed to be associated with the WOF.
Fans React To Buzzy Cohen’s Tweet
“And strange to think that in some cities Wheel of Fortune airs BEFORE Jeopardy…” one fan responded to Buzzy. “Dave AND Busters,” another wrote. Others were quick to jump in with comments like “Ken and Mayim,” a shot at the two current hosts of Jeopardy!
A few folks mentioned that Pat Sajak‘s conservative political views did not align with their own, which led them to stop watching WOF. One person jokingly warned Buzzy that what he said was a “hot take” and that he may have to go into hiding.
All jokes aside, it seemed like Buzzy was throwing a little shade at Wheel of Fortune, saying that Jeopardy! was the better of the two game shows. Both programs undoubtedly have been on the air for decades and have their own fan bases.
What do you think? Was Buzzy Cohen purposefully throwing shade at Wheel of Fortune or was the Jeopardy! star just making a comparison? Let us know what you think in the comments!
