Today’s Final Jeopardy answer was, “The creator of this comic strip did not like its 1950 change in title, believing it suggested insignificance.” All three contestants got the correct question, and Stephanie Jass has tied the women’s record of seven consecutive wins. So far she has won $147,570.
P.S. Stephanie lost on Wednesday.

The somewhat bitter memory of the IBM Watson computer match on Jeopardy! has been wiped out by a five-game winning streak by Tom Kunzen. He’s cannily won by one point — twice — and in another game he was the last player standing for Final Jeopardy! Very impressive.
Follow-up: A sixth win didn’t happen for Tom.

Samjay says that yesterday I missed the funniest thing he’s ever seen in all his years of watching Jeopardy!
By the way, I saw the second and third days of Jeopardy!’s Watson computer challenge. When IBM announced the contest I asked Larissa Kelly about it, and she said that she was looking forward to watching it herself. Considering the drubbing that Ken Jennings and Brad Rutter suffered, I guess I’m glad Larissa wasn’t a contestant!

Click the picture to see the blog stats for May.
This is yet another record month for the site. I have almost none of the videos posted that got me into trouble with my former hosting service, for using too much of my “unlimited” storage. I’m now streaming video from YouTube as much as possible, and yet nearly 30 GB of bandwidth was consumed. Why? Because of one set of videos I uploaded after switching the hosting service. I wanted to be sure they were online before the Jeopardy! Tournament of Champions aired. The hits and the bandwidth were, once again, for Larissa Kelly.
The last time the site stats set a new record was when Larissa’s appearance on the 2009 Tournament of Champions was re-run. Before that, the tournament with Larissa blasted the previous record, which was set when her original appearances were re-run, and before that…. well, you get the idea. You know how Stephen Colbert likes to boast about the Colbert Bump? This site gets the Larissa Bump.

I’ve noticed a sudden increase in hits related to Jeopardy! contestant Larissa Kelly, and now I see why. The Tournament of Champions from March is being rerun. Tomorrow they’ll have the show with Larissa’s loss to Dan Pawson.
