Only one letter?

Years ago (many, actually), I vowed never to watch Wheel of Fortune again, after a contestant, confronted with a board that said "MICHAEL JACKSO__," guessed the letter P.  Really.

But this news story got my attention.  A woman on the show recently was given a seven-word blank clue.  She guessed the letter L.  It appeared in one space, in only one word, and she SOLVED THE PUZZLE!  The answer was "I've Got A Good Feeling About This."  

Part of the trick was that the first word, "__'__ __" could only be "I've" or "I'll."  When she guessed L and it was not in the first word, she knew it started with "I've."

That is kind of crazy.
