When the show airs in the US varies around the country.



Years ago I lived in a location where I could watch it at 5 PM, and then see it again on another station in another program area at 6 PM.

I have a pretty decent memory and always thought it would be a riot to watch the 5 PM show and then have friends over for the 6 PM show where I would just magically know all the answers :)

Thank you. I came on hoping someone posted the results since I was at kids baseball game tonight.

If you google jeopardy and dailymotion (taking the slight risk of a spoiler if he beats his record or other newsworthy items) then you'll get a link to the video. That way you can watch it (doesn't have ads so only 20 mins long) before coming here. I posted a link earlier but here's another one

I am not sure if we should wish you luck on your audition. What would your feeling be if you showed up in 2 months and you see him there still. That means he would be on for about 5 months at that point



It's going to take luck and real smarts to beat him, no question. I don't think I'm good enough, head to head, to do it. But I could luck out on categories here and there, based on what he doesn't get right so far. I have to get through the audition to even get a shot, so I'm taking it a step at a time.

There have been a couple times he's been vulnerable, and a couple people who might have been good enough, but they were too cautious. I think it can be done.

This is not to dis him in any way. I'm filled with admiration at how he's doing. I just don't think he's infallible.

One thing that has to be tough is that he is getting all of this practice on the buzzer. That had got to lead to a decent advantage. I think his aggressive style is going to lead others to double up if they ever get a dd. That is probably what will eventually get him

With just one more win at his current average ($76,624), Holzhauer will already be more than halfway to the total amount Ken Jennings earned during Ken's 74 day streak. That's amazing.

Does anyone know the how many more episodes there are in this season? Also, does anyone know how long the break is and when the first episode of the next season is scheduled to air?

Anyone care to make a friendly wager how long he lasts? Just to throw out a number, I predict he makes it through April 26 at least. I absolutely promise I have no inside information.

This will be decided tomorrow. (Friday) That went by fast.

Assuming he wins again tomorrow, what's the next fair over/under?

My biggest question about him is, what took him so long to get on Jeopardy?

I read that in an interview he said that he took the online test 13 times (every year since it’s been offered) and had two in-person auditions before he was invited on the show. I also read that by the time you get to the in-person auditions, at that point it's more about personality than trivia knowledge.

do not diss the Holzhauer. When I made some observations, some thought I was taking a shot at him ... I felt like a pariah for a while there!
