Looking to find out who won Jeopardy! tonight? Today’s Jeopardy! results will go up on this page late afternoon, with full stats early evening. They will be seen in the comments section at the bottom of this page.

The Estates-General was ostensibly an advisory body to the King of France, but its duties had been effectively replaced by a Parliament (which had been a rubber-stamp body for the King in the 17th and 18th centuries). When Parliament attempted to assert its independence, it found itself dissolved and the King attempted to replace it by the then-archaic institution known as the Estates-General in early 1789, representing the three “estates” of French society (the clergy, noblemen, and commoners). The Third Estate’s assertions of dominance in defiance of the King’s wishes held up proceedings and the French Revolution followed shortly thereafter.

    I am impressed that there was a correct answer. Usually when it comes to European history/politics/geography the pickings are rather slim.Yesterday’s “Europe” category was rather easy and only one got it (I guess nobody is watching the Olympics?….)I thought today would be a strikeout. Good for Todd, it has been a while that the leader (and a runaway to boot) got FJ right.

  3. I thought this was a difficult question missing context information. I expected Alex to mention the French Revolution with the correct answer.

  4. john blahuta | March 8, 2017 at 2:13 pm |

    IMO the clue was also poorly worded. Instead of “this year” it should have said “that year”. When I read the clue first, I was thinking “this year=2017″….

    • Andy Saunders | March 8, 2017 at 3:07 pm |

      Seriously? Jeopardy has been using the “this x” construct since time immemorial.

  5. Could we get Shawn’s stats?

    • Normally I reserve this “running total” for the people who become champs, but:

      13 correct
      2 incorrect
      2/2 on Daily Doubles (Net Earned: $6,000)
      0/1 in Final Jeopardy
      19.23% in first on buzzer (10/52)
      Average Coryat: $6,400
