    This tournement is great. The questions are way Fucking harder than any other regular or tournement jeopardy game and these guys are mostly nailing them. James missed more questions in game 3 than in probably all his previous not GOAT games combined.

    I actually feel a little bad for Brad. And I always hated Brad. Lol. I still want Ken to win, but I feel bad for Brad. He has inadvertently been keeping James in check by finding DDs early in the games. In game three, he basically gave the match to Ken by finding the last one and said your welcome. Lol

    I think the make-is likely due to Alex’s treatments. I’m glad they got to do this while he was still able.

    I am all in on Ken being the new Jeopardy host when Alex leaves. I think he’d be great and a nice legacy nod to players.

    SAVAGE.
    I've concluded that DJSapp was never DJSapp, and Not DJSapp is also not DJSapp, so that means he's telling the truth now and he was lying before.

    Last night would have been a great way for Alex to sail off into the sunset and retire from Jeopardy forever... I watched until the end just in case.

    I have a feeling he'll wrap it up after this current season--assuming his health allows him to make it that long. I imagine taping ends sometime in the Spring.

    How can none of tonight's three recognize Adam Schiff? Does not bode well for this country, no matter which side you're on.

    The show was probably taped before the House inquiry really got going.

    I think the same and was almost expecting an announcement at the end of GOAT

    Ken Jennings was played brilliantly and is truly the GOAT. I truly hope he takes over for Alex when he leaves. I wouldn’t have believed it, but I felt bad for Brad and actually started to like him. WTF jeopardy. He was not at the same level as his usual tournament play. It really ended up James vs Ken. I was kinda shocked James missed the final and 2-2 would have made for some gripped play in a game 5. Great tournament. I don’t know how future ones will measure up. It was grad school jeopardy vs college. I liked all the hat tips to Alex and the comraderie. And the savage burn from James was good too


    And ya, I missed the game but how does any jeopardy player not know who adam schiff is?

    Seattle Times has a story about Ken:
    https://www.seattletimes.com/enterta...g-on-the-show/

    I find it interesting that Ken says he thinks he's done competing on the show. A possible hint that he'll be taking over for Alex when Alex steps down? I think he'd do a great job as host.

    Jeopardy thread- LETITSNOW

    Well, Alex did say at toward the end that this would be the last time these players competed. Or something to that effect.

    I would be extremely disappointed if they brought in an outsider when Ken clearly has the chops and likability to be host.

    The only mark against Ken is that he know lots of former contestants and others in the trivia community. This could be a conflict of interest that would be unacceptable to standards and practices.

    Today is Alex Trebek’s 80th birthday! he’s still contracted for 2 more yrs and from a recent interview I saw, he wants to continue on as long as possible but admits he has some memory/ brain fog from all the meds.

    Did you guys see the first episode that they aired earlier this week? funny stuff how the questions were basically the same.

    I watched the first and second episodes. The questions seemed really easy. Episode 2 with Cliff Claven was fucking hilarious. Apparently the only time all three contestants ended at $0.

    Alex suggested Betty White be the next Host...

    And last night they had one of the very old reruns and the NYC Cop won too much money and had to declare a charity for money over $60K - I guess it happened a few times before they changed the rule for maximum monies earned.

    We were watching one of the old shows they're running now. One of the contestants was an Aussie who was working on software so that you could take pictures with your phone or play games on it. Anyone know how that turned out?

    My wife said the exact same thing. Specifically Kathy Griffin's annoying character on Seinfeld. And is it me or is she (Griffin) starting to look more and more like Carrot Top?

    By the way I posted in the other Jeopardy thread last night:
