Anybody watching Jeopardy?

I was thinking that too...But I dunno if he'd do it.  Guy seems pretty happy writing books and living off the Jeopardy windfall

He's made like 5 million on Jeopardy.  When ABC offers that much PER YEAR I think he'll take it.  It's not like you work that much anyways.  Show up for a couple weeks, tape 4 shows a day, then go home and come back in a month.

Plus he would actually know all of the answers instead of pretending to know them like Trebek. 

 

I guess I don’t watch much network tv anymore. I have not heard of this tournament at all other than from this thread. Other than Jennings, I don’t know the contestants.

I had never heard of Brad Rutter before.  I don't have time to watch Jeopardy much any more but used to back when Ken was originally on.  That's why I was rooting for him to win this.  I had heard of James just because he was in the news almost every day during his Jeopardy run breaking some record.  Plus he's a professional gambler and I've played a bit of poker so I could relate.  Was worried his style would make it hard for Ken to keep up.  As I noted above it was interesting seeing Ken adjust his game.  I was disappointed in Brad's poor showing in this tournament.

Yeah.  That's a good point

Check out Elise Nussbaum from the other night. Looked to have a tight body & way more librarian hot than the pic.

The wife and I used to watch Jeopardy religiously until 10 or so years ago, then just kinda phased it out, I guess. I plan on watching this week, though. :(

In thought the Brayden guy was going to go on a long run. He played terribly his last game.

Classic hit the buzzer expecting the answer to come and then not having an answer......over and over again.

The quick montage at the end was nice.  RIP Alex

Agreed...  Going to be weird to hear Johnny Gilbert announce Ken Jennings on Monday's show...

I would expect them to change the beginning as well...

Surprised Michele Obama wasn’t brought up as a replacement. They throw her name around for everything else.
