ABC already has a game show on the air that requires three contestants... "Press Your Luck."
And it would be awesome to see the three go head to head on that show.

What's in store for the 3 Jeopardy giants after GOAT?

Apparently, Ken Jennings announced he does not plan to return to the Jeopardy! set after the GOAT tournament. And Brad Rutter finally lost to a human, to the same person he defeated in the Ultimate Tournament of Champions and the Battle of Decades tourney. James Holzhauer is still in his prime, so I...

Re: GOAT Tournament Day 4 (1/14/20) Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

The key to this game was basically James finding dd3 in the second match. If he had known Final Jeopardy, he would have won the match, and it would have been an exciting contest tomorrow with both Ken and James facing elimination. I correctly answered Iago myself and am amazed that all three of the...

Re: GOAT Tournament Day 3 (1/9/20) Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

As much a fan of James as I am, it's getting hard to deny that Ken is easily the GOAT player based off his performances so far. I may not really care for him as much as I do James or Brad, but objectively speaking, damn, he truly is something else. Of course Brad or James could easily turn things a...

Re: GOAT Tournament Day 3 (1/9/20) Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Updated probabilities: under the "totally random outcome, evenly matched players" assumption, Ken is now a strong favorite to win the tournament (19/27, or about 70%), James is at 6/27 (22%), and Brad at 2/27 (a little over 7%). How credible is that assumption? I think for Ken and James, it seems v...

Re: GOAT Tournament Day 3 (1/9/20) Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

And DAYUM, Ken! Nicely done! Not looking good for James...sigh. I don't think he's going to win the tournament; I see his legacy getting tarnished. He may not win, but James has had a run of bad luck. The only one whose legacy might be getting tarnished is Brad, and that could be due to playing aga...

Re: GOAT Tournament Day 2 (1/8/20) Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

And by the way, it was Bleeding Fingers Music who scored the music package for GOAT. More like Bleeding Ears Music, in my insignificant opinion. I believe this arrangement of the Jeopardy! music is heavy sounding because of the tournament featuring the three legends going head to head (GOAT is a lo...

Re: GOAT Tournament: The Return of Super Jeopardy!-Style Points

Moderator note: Spoilerized comments about GOAT tournament results. I watched both matches, and I have to say that so far it does look like the best tournament ever, even more prestigious than a regular ToC. James and Ken are both really good players, and really fun to watch going head to head again...

Re: GOAT Tournament Day 2 (1/8/20) Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

James got his redemption and beat Ken Jennings tonight; but at the same time, they both beat Brad Rutter on the signaling device. And Brad finished DJ! with a negative score in the second game, and couldn't play in the FJ! round. However, he was still at his lectern, and normally, the player elimina...

Re: GOAT Tournament Day 1 (1/7/20) Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I hated the jazzed up version of the music as well. I wonder if the new music package that was created for this event will carry over to the syndicated series starting next season. - The current music package has been in use for more than 11 years. - Season 36 may be the last season with Alex hosti...

Re: GOAT Tournament Day 1 (1/7/20) Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I'm rooting for James to win the next match tomorrow and then take the next two after that. That said, I thought GOAT was going to use the current music package from the syndicated series. But I was impressed by the new arrangements of the main theme and think music, especially since they're both in...

Re: GOAT Tournament: The Return of Super Jeopardy!-Style Points

I was a bit confused at the time when I read about the tournament being like the two day finals of the ToC and at the same time being a best-of-seven series. But when I read more information about each match being a two-game affair, I was no longer confused.

Re: 2010s Decade Recap for Jeopardy!

What did you guys think of the 2010s so far? I think it's safe to say, it will likely remain my favorite decade as far as the show is concerned. :lol: I can say the 2010s had more memorable moments than the 2000s did, especially Season 30 and later, because there were more big-time champions (Julia...

Re: GOAT Tournament: The Return of Super Jeopardy!-Style Points

According to James's Facebook page, each GOAT episode is going to last an hour instead of the usual half-hour. So does he mean that there are more rounds in the game in addition to Jeopardy!, Double Jeopardy!, and Final Jeopardy!? I assume each episode is a two game total point affair, like a TOC f...

Re: GOAT Tournament: The Return of Super Jeopardy!-Style Points

According to James's Facebook page, each GOAT episode is going to last an hour instead of the usual half-hour. I just did some research, and found out that episodes will be an hour long because a match covers two games. The person with the highest combined score from both games wins a match, just li...

Re: 2010s Decade Recap for Jeopardy!

It was a good decade with James Holzhauer & all the special tournaments. Really fun then the 2000's, 1990's & 1980's The 2000s were memorable but in their own way. 2000 began in Season 16. During the College Championship in February, the Rock & Roll Jeopardy! think cue is used for the FJ! segment. ...
