More information about Final Jeopardy:
In an article at artofthetitle.com, logo creator Brett Wickens said that when he was given the script for The Sopranos, he thought the title referred to opera singers and didn’t look at the script for a few days! Once he read the script and realized it was about mobsters, Wickens realized he needed something “symbolic to steer it into the right territory”.

Tournament of Champions projections:
With a projected 152 regular-play games to go prior to the Tournament of Champions cutoff, after 500,000 simulations, our model shows:
An average of 4.2651 5+-time champions (standard deviation 1.7292).
An average of 7.7523 4+-time champions (standard deviation 2.1483).
An early cutoff took place 23.078% of the time (or a 5-game winner will be left out).
Jessica Holloway qualified 10.712% of the time.
Dave Leffler qualified 49.264% of the time.
Jonathan Dinerstein qualified 22.567% of the time.
Alex Schmidt qualified 8.536% of the time.
Jackie Fuchs qualified 1.421% of the time.
Mary Ann Borer qualified 0.164% of the time.
- Both “The Portrait of Dorian Grey” (on July 1, 2013) and “The Origin of The Species” (on February 4, 2016) have been ruled incorrect in the past. The latter is incorrect because while you can add leading articles to titles, internal articles may not be added or changed.
- There are going to be a lot of home viewers who got this Final Jeopardy! correct and are going to be shocked that two players did not. But that’s not particularly fair to the players. Alex was not just being charitable: it was very much a clue where if it doesn’t come to you right away, you’re going to struggle with it for a long time.
