I can't imagine why, but Jeopardy! was pre-empted by some weird cartoon on some weird network called "qubo." I watched the whole half-hour just in case (by myself in the basement, banished by my family), and I waited until the next half-hour to make sure it wouldn't start then. The onscreen guide said that Jeopardy! was going to be on, so I can't explain it. The only thing I could do is tweet my displeasure to the channel that was supposed to air it. If I hear back from them, I'll let you know.
But a promise is a promise. My exciting news is...I'm ringing in the new year with a new contest. This one will be like the last one: I'm asking you to post your Coryat scores in comments here. Here is a copy of the scoresheet, created by Josh Horstman from Indianapolis, Indiana. The more you play, the more chances you have to win. This time I will give you two weeks, so that is 10 chances! What is the prize, you ask? I'm giving you a choice of three things:
1) Jeopardy! for the Wii
2) A copy of Stephen Baker's Final Jeopardy: Man vs. Machine and the Quest to Know Everything (that is, once it comes out in February!)
3) A Jeopardy Challenger (the device I use to keep track of my score at home)
Like last time, you can post your scores all at once, one day at a time, or anything in between. Start Monday, January 3. Also like last time, I'll join you in using the Coryat method to keep track of my score. Any questions? This will be fun! Help me spread the word!
