Current information[edit]

This article makes no sense. Obviously Pat Sajak has been the host of what people know as the Wheel of Fortune for a very long time. If I were an alien I would have no idea of that reading this article. This makes it sound like he quit as the host in the 1980s. The caption for one of the pictures even says Sajak and White have hosted the syndicated version since 1983 yet there is no link to a page for the syndicated version. Which makes no sense because nobody give a sh** about any version of Wheel of Fortune that doesn't have Pat Sajak and Vanna White hosting it. So if the one currently airing is technically the syndicated one then this article should be ABOUT the syndicated show with whatever came on before being relegated to a footnote. Honestly, I think this is vandalism. Will somebody please fix this? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 98.230.1.159 (talk) 04:49, 2 October 2013 (UTC)

This is hardly vandalism. The network daytime version (1975-1991) used to be the subject of a separate article which was merged into this one. Sajak left the daytime show in 1989 but has been on the nighttime version throughout its run. Yes, the current show is the syndicated one, as is made clear within the first few sentences of the article, and the overwhelming majority of the information in the article is about the current version. 32.179.50.207 (talk) 10:29, 2 October 2013 (UTC)

The show is still on the air. Need current host information. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 70.109.56.32 (talk) 00:19, 6 December 2011 (UTC)

37 years but 30th anniversary?[edit]

The current version of the show doesn't count the daytime version as part of its history. The nighttime show is in its 30th season. JTRH (talk) 01:13, 30 October 2012 (UTC)

picture of set[edit]

The picture of the set is really outdated, could someone possibly find a picture of the current set.207.224.196.27 (talk) 03:08, 26 January 2013 (UTC)

Citation needed tag[edit]

Re: the citation needed tag added yesterday with the edit summary "a GA with unsourced parts?": my understanding per WP:GAC? is that the only statements requiring inline citation are "direct quotations, statistics, published opinion, counter-intuitive or controversial statements that are challenged or likely to be challenged, and contentious material relating to living persons". WP:GACN goes to to specify, "Inline citations are not decorative elements, and GA does not have any "one citation per sentence" or "one citation per paragraph" rules." I won't revert the tag that's in place, but thought I'd explain my own reasoning. I'll leave it to the regular editors of the article from here. Cheers, -- Khazar2 (talk) 10:52, 10 June 2013 (UTC)

How do we watch the show?[edit]
