I couldn't even keep track of what tournament it was or what the purpose of it was. Whenever I turned on Jeopardy, I just though, "Oh, Amy or the Steve Martin look alike is on again".

I was wondering if they were going to be having normal episodes this season, or if the whole year was going to be one tedious tournament after another.

Jeopardy Masters will be a primetime special series, while the daytime syndication will continue to show regular episodes.

Knowing this '80s pop song's lyrics was a most helpful clue.

Alison wins again to extend her streak to 5 games. I really like her and I'm glad to see her make it this far, but the last two games were a bit of a struggle for her.

Another easy one, but they got the year wrong in the clue. They were really created in 1984 and not 1983.

They were created in 1983, but they weren't published until 1984.

Damn it, I should have gotten that one.

But "fictional group created in 1983" put Spinal Tap in my head, and I knew that wasn't the answer (for one, 'Tap predated 1983) but it got stuck in there and I couldn't think of anything else.

I think they drew a design for a singular Ninja Turtle in 1983. They didn't flesh out a team of turtles until early 1984 from what I recall. That would be like saying The Avengers was created in 1962 because Thor first appeared in Journey into Mystery in 1962, even though the idea for the Avengers team wasn't formulated until 1963.

One night in 1983 — and neither can remember why — inspiration struck. Eastman drew a humanized turtle wearing a ninja mask and carrying a katana blade. The idea of a slowpokey turtle as a swift and wily ninja cracked them up. By the end of the evening the artists had created four tortoises. Eastman quickly christened them the Ninja Turtles, but then, in an absurdist wink at two of the most popular themes in comic books at the time, Laird lengthened the name to Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles…
