I've been forgetting to watch.
I think I remember a blind guy from a few years ago though, was it that guy?

Blind Eddie bet all he had in final, got it right, but the guy who was in the lead ended up winning.

I've actually been watching some of these (haven't watched much Jeopardy! since Ken lost), and I have to agree with most people that a lot of these questions are pretty difficult.

Can't wait til Ken comes back for the ultimate showdown.

Hey Turd, that's a funny hat. It's funny because it's ah, bigger than, ah...you know, a normal hat.

Sorry, couldn't resist on a Jeopardy thread.

Thank you. This should be fun to watch. Ken might actually be sweating this time...actually being human.

So I was watching Jeopardy the other day and I couldn't believe how easy the questions were. Have they dumbed it down a lot? 10 years ago that guy would have never won so many in a row.

Well, the rules on return appearances being what they were back in the day, I'd say you are certainly right.

But to your meaning, the contestants in a given game have to answer the same questions. So if they are more difficult, I would think the better player would outclass lesser opponents even moreso. If the questions were quite simple, it would be all about the button, and anyone with good timing could be a thousand time champ. But with more difficult questions, you have to think about and believe you know the question before you just automatically buzz, and a truly smarter player will win every time over a good button presser who would probably end up with a vastly negative dollar amount. Obviously the best result will be by someone good at both, and that is Ken to a T.

Hey, don't worry about that. I still record on a VCR. Seeing as I am a poor person who is in college. I would rather just buy dvds and beer instead of TIVO and a dvd recorder..

Wow. I must be really dumb then. Cause I get confused as to how these people even know that random stuff.

Especially the geographical or historical questions...

The Al Pacino category last night I kicked their asses on though

I believe I read Ken should be on 05/23-05/25? (Which I think corresponds with the last three days of sweeps)

Semifinals begin tonight. A pair of two-day, total point matches. The two winners here will proceed to the Finals and face-off against the most successful contestant in game show history: Ken Jennings. At stake is a two million dollar Grand Prize and the title of Jeopardy! Ultimate Tournament of Champions winner.

The 3-day total point final begins next Monday.

I've been watching most of the shows during the tournament, it's entertaining. I like that chick Pam, she is pretty cute.

I think Pam is pretty hot. She's cute and has a very intelligent look to her. I hope she kicks Ken's ass (unless she lost today...I taped it and haven't seen the result)
