    Since today's show hasn't aired for everybody yet . . .
    I don't know how they managed to keep this a secret for so long.

    If you're wondering what I mean by this you'll know after the show airs. I didn't think this was possible in this day and age.

    The show airs at 930 AM central time in Montgomery, Alabama, which is where most of the same day spoilers come from.

    The clip of Final Jeopardy was leaked online last night. No doubt by the production company hoping to pump up ratings.

    Probably, but the episodes are sent to stations a day in advance. Lots of people have access. (Today’s episode was sent out to local stations on Friday).

    Well, that's that. James' strategy doesn't work when he doesn't get the DDs. And is against an opponent who is as good as him on the buzzer.

    This post has nothing to do with today's show but may be a longer term spoiler that some fans might not want to know about.

    There are data guide services (I don't think Rovi) that describe upcoming episodes by listing contestant names.

    I'm still surprised they managed to keep it a secret for so long.

    I haven't seen it yet. I figured it was either he broke Jennings' record, or his run ended. From the comments, I'm guessing the latter. Which is ironic, because I was just saying to the family on Friday, that I guessed he made it through the end of the season, otherwise news of him losing would've leaked.

    I think it was the catamaran question.

    So sad--I was looking forward to months more of him. It is weird that they kept it secret until today--at least I didn't hear about it until this afternoon.

    Ok so, I don't get his betting strategy on Final. I mean, she bet enough to beat him even if James doubled, so he was losing either way. I just haven't figured out how he arrived at that number.

    He bet just enough to beat the other guy if he doubled.

    it was the correct bet. Online and on the radio, they are saying he lost because he didn't bet enough, which is wrong.

    I'm not going to pirate it. I'm just keeping track of the eps I'm missing.. when the James eps show up on Hulu or whatever in a couple of years, I hope I'll catch the ones I miss.

    Hopefully at some point Sony will wise up and put Jeopardy online.. Even with forced commercials, I'd use it to watch the preempted episodes.

    Though KGO claimed "they can't rerun" the episodes.. Yet as far as I could tell, last night's Jimmy Kimmel primetime ep didn't run at all (the game ran very long?).. But 10-11pm, they DID rerun two recent James episodes... not ones that were otherwise preempted.. at least I remembered the first one, I think I checked in for a minute or two during the 2nd one too.

    You know, you really didn't have to post that in the clear at 2:43 PM.

    That seems like a strange way to describe what happened. Did you think a different strategy would have resulted in a different outcome?
