Ken Jennings

Thirty-time "Jeopardy" Champion Ken Jennings broke $1,000,000 on tonight's broadcast.

When "Jeopardy" announced they had abolished the five-time win limit last year, I knew it was only a matter of time before a really dominant champ came along. However, I had no idea he would be this dominant.

How long do you think he can go?

6 more years until the car from Night Rider beats him in the finals of a 64 man Jeopardy tournament.

The questions on "Jeopardy" are easier than the ones on shows like "Who Wants to be a Millionare", but that's part of the style of the show. It's about knowledge, reaction time, and rapid-fire participation.

Me and my friends always joked that Stephen Hawking would do horrible on that show.

On topic, 30 times...Jesus. It must suck to be the other participants against him. Just think what they must be thinking:

"I can't believe I'm gonna be on Jeopardy! I might win some money! Oh fuck beans...it's that guy...."

He'll be beaten eventually, but he's so quick in his delivery, and his knowledge is so widespread, it's not even funny. I think he might be able to make it to around 1,500,000.

Its too fishy if you ask me. People are smart, but to be that smart about everything possible? If the questions seem too easy, it's probably for a reason. I don't know, I've always been skeptical about things like this.

I'm also skeptical. I haven't watched the past few episodes (I think last Thursday's episode was the last one I saw - I usually watch the Law & Order re-runs on TNT, unless its an episode I don't like or have seen a lot of times), but there was one episode where he hit the buzzer a little too fast on a question. And it was a fairly hard one.

Incidentally, on one episode, the $64,000 Question was one of the answers. :D

At any rate, I'm sure the 5-time limit will be back next season, if Ken Jennings is legit.

He's kinda like the HHH of Jeopardy.

Been on top too long

NEVER wants to do the Job

And has kept the title to the point that it's become boring

Am I reading a little too much into this?

I'm shocked that people would say Jeopardy is "getting boring" or that they'll switch back to the five-time limit. Because of Jennings, the show is getting all sorts of mainstream publicity, and I can only imagine the increase in ratings.

People will do anything to keep something that's slowly failing afloat. If the ratings were going down and magically after the 5 win rule disappeared this guy comes long.... too fishy. I used to remember a time where everyone I knew watched Jeopardy every night, and now I don't know anyone that's watched it in the last year.

If they need to do something to save the show, they'll do it, regardless of legacys.

Hell, look at the Price Is Right, they have weekend specials 4-5 times a year now with ungodly huge prizes to draw in some audience back.
