Results will go up on the main page late afternoon, with full stats early evening. They will be seen in the comments section at the bottom of the main page.

I thought it was an easier Final Jeopardy! at home, but I also know that sometimes the show needs an easy Final like this in order to keep Final Jeopardy! strategy more balanced. Sometimes you get an easy Final, sometimes you get a hard one.
