Here’s today’s Final Jeopardy (in the category French Literature) for Tuesday, November 17, 2020 (Season 37, Game 47):
An 1862 novel says this character “would have arrested his own father…and would have denounced his mother”
(correct response beneath the contestants)
We may have lost Alex, but the show must go on. Alex wouldn’t want it any other way. Please, let’s remember him over the next six weeks of banked episodes, and then afford him the same respect to his successors that we afforded to Alex when he replaced Art Fleming in 1984.
|Holly Bishop, a program director from Shafter, California
|Dan Burg, a stay-at-home dad from Santa Rosa, California
|Andy Wood, a writer originally from Ann Arbor, Michigan (1-day total: $26,799)

More information about Final Jeopardy: (The following write-up is original content and is copyright 2020 The Jeopardy! Fan. It may not be copied without linked attribution back to this page.)
Inspector Javert is the antagonist of Victor Hugo’s 1862 work Les Misérables, whose professional life intertwines with that of Jeal Valjean. Hugo chose the wording to demonstrate Javert’s devotion to his police work. Javert has been most famously portrayed by Terrance Mann in the original Broadway cast and Russell Crowe on film in 2012.
