    very good first match. this is gonna be entertaining. my boss said that his guide shows 4 more shows scheduled for next week. I'm guessing they went ahead and "planned" for them so as to not tip things in case they don't go to all 7 matches.

    True if watching live, the button won't do anything. Or no TiVo, in which case you wouldn't have that button on your remote.

    Ken went in big on that first DD. That and that James didn't get any DDs and Brad missing all of his allowed him to play more conservatively for the later DDs.

    James did miss at least 1 question, but it was not significant because it was a 400 clue IIRC. I think he missed another larger point value clue also, but that's the one I remember.

    My TiVo guide is still only showing one more game next Tuesday. I hope Wednesday and Thursday are wrong.

    It could be over in as little as 3 episodes, or it could go as long as 7 (if everyone wins 2 games).

    I loved the first episode, they are amazing at how quickly they can think on the spot. A couple of times I think Ken buzzed in without really knowing what his answer would be and then thought of it before time ran out.

    Speaking of which, they sure do give them a long time to answer.

    The first to three format is odd for a series like this because it does not determine how many shows they will do.

    It is odd since it was pretaped. ABC hasn’t even told the affiliates how many episodes that there will be.

    If they did that in itself would be a spoiler.

    My Tivo Guide shows a total of 4 episodes. Aside from last night, tonight, and tomorrow night, it has next Tuesday.

    That in and of itself is a bit of a spoiler on the part of ABC. It suggests that Ken Jennings doesn't sweep in three matches.

    My x1 has all seven listed now. Still doesn’t mean anything.

    That's my thinking, but we could be (hopefully) proved wrong.

    I know while not usual I have seen the same thing with best of 7 sports series where they don't list all the possible broadcasts.

    Unless they plan to play them all out as an exhibition even after a champ is determined.

    Wow.

    Brad didn’t get into Final Jeopardy in the second half of the second night.

    (Wasn’t sure about spoilers in this thread.)

    Well, that explains why the guide was filled with a pile of To Be Announced next week.

    Though, is it me or is it only Tuesday through Thursday? Friday doesn't have any episodes scheduled.

    But given my WMC switched to EPG123....
    There are episodes scheduled Tuesday through Friday next week. Whether this is because ABC scheduled it just in case, or it runs all 7 episodes is unknown.

    I probably should have rewound, but did I completely miss it, or did Ken not form the response "Rachel Maddow" in the form of a question? It was near the very end of the double jeopardy round in the second game of night 2. When it happened, I figured that they would deduct the points at the end of the round or when they came back just prior to final jeopardy, but nothing was ever said and, at that point, I didn't bother to rewind, which admittedly would have been more efficient than asking here if anyone else noticed.

    He didn't. Or rather, his answer was "Rachel Maddow??" with the inflection of a question.

    I figured this was like how NBA players are allowed to commit traveling and double dribbling infractions with impunity. :)
