Correct response: What is the Algonquin Round Table?
More information about Final Jeopardy:
The Algonquin Round Table is a famed group of New York City writers who met for lunch daily from 1919 until 1929 (and sporadically thereafter) at New York City’s Algonquin Hotel. The quote in the clue comes from its most prominent member, Dorothy Parker. The group has long been a favourite of the show’s writers, with J! Archive being littered with references to Parker, Robert Benchley, and Franklin P. Adams in clues about the group.
Since Alex Trebek’s diagnosis of stage 4 pancreatic cancer, many community members have been raising money. The Jeopardy! Fan Online Store is as well! All proceeds from any “Keep The Faith And We’ll Win” shirt sold will be donated to the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network. To date, over $440 has been raised.)

- Lower than normal Combined Coryat scores mean either tougher questions or below-average players. The anecdotal evidence I’ve seen from a number of viewers over the last couple of weeks (those of whom track their own personal Coryat scores daily) leads me to believe that the questions may be more difficult, as these home viewers are also struggling.
- A new feature: Beginning today, I’ll be posting the daily J!6 clues!
