  2. I got the final Jeopardy question right (yay!) so I googled the full list. They would have had a problem if someone had guessed Stan Lee, though, because this Slate article from 2011 has Stan Lee at #25: http://www.slate.com/blogs/browbeat/2011/03/11/bond_beats_bront_who_s_the_most_adapted_author_in_cinema.html

    • Hi, John:

      It’s quite possible that they elected to add the word “novelist” to the clue to pin the question, I think you have an excellent point.

      My suggestion would be to go to the show’s contact form at:


      and select “Feedback About A Show”.

  3. I missed last night’s episode and don’t own a DVR. Where can I watch it online?

    • Unfortunately, you can’t.

      (Jeopardy relies on revenues as provided by local television stations in order to produce the show, so there is no streaming option).

  4. They seemed to have skipped Fridays show on the west coast. We got Mondays pre-empted and they started Tuesday with Mondays show and continued so Thursday show on Friday.
