    I was thinking "Eire" which according to a clue from a crossword I did this week is the official name in Ireland's Constitution.

    Edit: from the source:
    The name of the State is Éire, or, in the English language, Ireland.​

    Half credit?

    I got Spain and France right away, but it took me a bit to get Greece, but I got it just in the nick of time. I’m always proud of myself when I get a Final Jeopardy right. It doesn’t happen all that often.

    I don't see how Alex and the judges were able to understand that one man last night. I had a lot of trouble.

    We knew it was coming, but super sad nonetheless. A true American icon. RIP

    I wonder how this affects tomorrow's episode. Will they just have a brief statement or will we get an entire half hour devoted to remembering him?

    His last ep is December 25th...My ABC station has to carry the NBA....maybe the NBA shifts the 5:30 game to Turner?

    Obviously there were no Ray Bradbury fans competing. I would have got it right, but I'm surprised to find out it's that old.

    It will almost certainly be just a brief tribute, similar to what they did this summer when they aired a Regis Philbin celebrity episode right after his death. Given Alex's stated preferences, I seriously doubt they have a half-hour tribute episode in the can -- and even if they did, pre-empting an episode wouldn't be fair to the contestants (and sliding episodes back a day would cause a lot of problems in terms of Alex saying things like "we'll see you Monday").

    I almost can't believe I'm responding to this... but they're not going to move an NBA game to another network just because of something related to a syndicated program that happens to air on some ABC affiliates (yes, even if it's the owned-and-operated affiliates). The various local stations are going to have to figure out another time slot for that "Jeopardy!" episode. I can already predict that it's going to be 9:00 P.M. on KABC in Los Angeles.

    So sad to hear this. My thoughts go out to his family.

    The end of an era.

    The new EP Mike Richards was on CNN yesterday. He said they only shot 3 and 2 episodes on Oct 28 and 29, instead of 5 each day per usual. Sounds like Alex was very much in decline at that point, although he didn't choose to say goodbye as he had previously discussed.

    On the ABC special it looked like he had decided how he would like to say goodbye to his fans and recorded it.

    If you missed the special last night, it is on Hulu as a 20/20 episode. Also on the ABC app.
