    • The last time we had three consecutive two-player Final Jeopardy! rounds was July 2, 5, and 6, 2004.
  3. Dal Higbee | March 2, 2017 at 6:08 pm |

    One of the times that we had three two player Final Jeopardy! rounds in the same exact week was the week of January 13, 2003 (on Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday).

    • Frank Smith | March 2, 2017 at 8:43 pm |

      Yeah, but those weren’t consecutive. The consecutive ones were actually Ken Jennings games 23, 24, and 25.

  4. john blahuta | March 2, 2017 at 6:48 pm |

    so, did Nil not make it to FJ or did he have $ 3.000.00????

  5. john blahuta | March 2, 2017 at 7:06 pm |

    oh, it was MINUS 3.000.00 Did not see that the first time, or maybe it was missing? (the minus sign).

    • Andy Saunders | March 2, 2017 at 7:14 pm |

      I think you just missed it the first time. 🙂 No worries, and better to check. I’ve been known to make mistakes!

  6. john blahuta | March 2, 2017 at 7:11 pm |

    …and 2 runaways back to back for Rob! 3 two contestant finals in a row and the last 2 were runaways….what are the chances??

  7. My local station decided to run an infomercial instead of Jeopardy tonight. Is there a way to watch the show on the internet?

  8. It was not broadcast on Ch. 13 KRQE in Albuquerque, NM.

  9. As usual, I tuned in to Jeopardy tonight and it is not on! There is some ongoing commercial for cosmetic products. Why isn’t my favorite program on??? I live in Santa Fe, NM with channel coming out of Albuquerque.

  10. Thanks very much for providing the match’s details. The only TV station I have found via my cable provider which carries Jeopardy! again preempted it for an informerical, Last time when that happened, I asked about a possible later broadcast, but there was none.
