Alex Trebek is no stranger to rapping on Jeopardy!, and America’s favorite former Canadian took on the flow tonight when lyrics to the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air theme song turned up in a first round category. He got in one little fight, and his mom got scared.
When it comes to famous wrong Final Jeopardy! responses, most people think Cliff Clavin. But tonight’s Jeopardy! champion, Choyon Manjrekar, made his bid for infamy with a tremendous response to a clue that stumped all three contestants:
Nightmarish, perverted furry Clark the Cub is still struggling to catch on among piss-soaked Wrigley fans—and trivia nerds, apparently, as none of the three competitors tonight on Jeopardy! were able to respond correctly when prompted to name the team Clark represents during the Final Jeopardy! round. Perhaps Alex…
In January, CBS acquired the rights to air NFL Network's Thursday Night Football through the first half of the season. That slate turned out to be some of the shittiest professional football ever put on television, and it was a financial catastrophe for the Tiffany network. But prime-time national NFL broadcasts…
"Pro Sports Teams" was a category on Teen Jeopardy this evening and none of the contestants wanted anything to do with it. The rest of the board slowly vanishes while the Sports column remains menacingly unselected.
I am a Thought Leader of Television, and so I've been asked to ruminate on the Big News that Jeopardy!—yeah! the exclamation point! is officially part of the title!—beat Wheel of Fortune in the ratings a coupla weeks ago, the first time in over a decade, and is this perhaps an indicator that maybe America is trending…

Arthur Chu's streak of Jeopardy! wins has ended at 11, as he failed in tonight's show to answer Final Jeopardy correctly after a miserable game that left him in third place entering the final round.
When Arthur Chu got the call saying he'd been selected to go on Jeopardy, his first move was thorough and decisive: He went to Google and typed in "jeopardy strategy."
You think you know how to play Jeopardy!, don't you? Answer in the form of a question, study your butt off, capitalize on anything that feels trendy, and press the buzzer when Trebek stops yapping, not before. It's worked for hundreds of people. But a new champion is showing that there's a better way, using game…
354 wins did not overcome the controversy as this ex-Red Sox pitcher didn't make the Hall of Fame cut in 2013. Who is Mark McGwire? (Trebek snorts mockingly.)
Today's episode of Jeopardy! featured a category of famous rap lyrics. So here's video of Alex Trebek rapping famous lyrics, featuring the words of Dr. Dre, Public Enemy, and Biggie.
If you thought Jeopardy! was going to just sit idly by and let the likes of Barry Bonds sully the good game of baseball and the legitimate heroics contained therein, you thought fucking wrong.
It's Jeopardy! Kids Week, which is heartrending enough with the amount of pressure put on small children—there's more than a little bit of the Roman Arena in tuning in to watch tiny dreams be crushed. But last night's Final Jeopardy was a shitshow from top to bottom.
How many of these answers from tonight's Jeopardy! can you get? All of them, probably.
Come on, Trebek. I mean, I know the specific technical details of Jeopardy answers are important and all, but really? REALLY? Zelda is perfectly fine. Nobody actually calls the game The Legend of Zelda. As Stephen Totilo just said out loud in the office, "THIS IS AN OUTRAGE!"
