Yeah the questions definitely seem harder than usual.



I like it that way. Sort of like how the obstacle course on American Ninja Warrior gets really crazy for the championship, it should be a challenge to all of them. Even so, the three seem to be able to produce the correct questions for almost every answer.

Both are now on Hulu, and abc.com. sorry the latter is blocked for you, Charlie.

Is there a British version of Jeopardy!?

Not that I'm aware of. There are a number of question based programs; Mastermind, Only Connect, The Chase spring to mind.

I used to think the questions were harder.

But maybe that was when I was 13. ; )

If you’re watching the program at home with a friend who can consistently reel off the correct answers faster than you, even if you also know many of the answers you can still feel kind of dumb.

Edit - questions gee.

Go James Go!

I wonder how the taping worked in real time? Do they usually do five regular shows in a taping day? Since these are "double length" matches consisting of two games each, did they tape three "matches" (6 regular games) in one day?

They did one match (two games) in the morning, one match in the afternoon.

At this point, I'm hoping Ken wins it all, so our bet pushes.

Ratings for the show are thru the roof. 14 mill for Tue, 14.4 for Wed, 15.3 for Thur. Hopefully tonight will be even bigger. First in the time slot all 3 nights, they were 2-3-4 best ratings of 2020, after the Grammys. Last night CFBC might have beat them, haven't heard.

ABC is looking at other Jeopardy! show formatd to broadcast prime time. They can't believe how big this has gotten. And totally not expected. Fun!

Jeopardy test is Jan 28-30. Do it, people!

I was surprised Ken left himself open to be caught by not betting anything on the second Final Jeopardy. Do you think he did it:
A) To extend the game,
B) He thought he would miss it.
C) He thought James would miss it.
