"Milwaukee, Wisconsin" will be featured as a puzzle on the Oct. 15 episode of "Wheel of Fortune."
"Wheel," which was in town recently for tryouts, marked the beginning of its 25th season on Sept. 10. The show, according to television ratings services, still pulls in 47 million viewers per week, making it syndication's longest-running, most successful series.
In March 2008, "Wheel" travels to Chicago, the hometown of Pat Sajak, to tape 15 episodes from Navy Pier. The three weeks of shows will air in May 2008. Producers also are looking at additional city visits for show tapings. Milwaukee might be in their plans in the coming years.
"Wheel" airs weeknights at 6 p.m. on Channel 58. So, watch it or set those DVRs. You'll easily, at least, be able to get one of the puzzles correct.
