    I guessed right! I liked the original show better, probably because today there are so many other shows (e.g., Scorpion) where people solve problems ingeniously in seconds. I’m eager to see if tonight’s contestants all get the right answer.

    • The last time we we had 5 consecutive wins over $20,000: Oct. 31-Nov. 4, 2016.
  3. Frank Smith | March 10, 2017 at 6:40 pm |

    The 10/31-11/4 $20,000 streak was a time with 5 different 1-timers.

    Too bad Annie couldn’t work out the right answer. She could’ve won huge.

  4. Andy, this is the tenth Friday in a row in regular game that the leader has not gotten the Final Jeopardy response right. What is up with that?

  5. I got it right yes I win well not on jeopardy
