This game just aired in Daytime last week.. Final Jeopardy: NOBEL LAUREATES (He was the subject of a 2014 New York Times article headlined “A Pioneer as Elusive as His Particle”). It’s going to confuse a great number of people who watch both Daytime and first-run episodes; I bet that at least one person online (other than myself) will say something about it!
Meanwhile, It’s probably a good idea that Keith is probably on hiatus today. The contestants can do whatever they so desire in Final Jeopardy, but I— let’s just say— would not have made the same decision.
