  • Anyone else been watching him wreck Jeopardy? Over $2,000,000 in 27 games. He's less than $500,000 away from Ken Jennings winnings record, though he still needs 47 more appearances to match Jennings win streak.

  • Been watching him from his first win. Amazing amount of knowledge.

    We watch Jeopardy almost every day if we can.

  • The reigning champ easily won a 30th straight game to bring his total to $2,323,971 ― approaching Ken Jennings’ non-tournament record of $2,520,700.

  • We've been watching the last couple of weeks.

    I was rooting against him most shows when people would get close (which wasn't often), but now that he's close I'd like to see Holzhauer break Jenning's record.

    He seems like a good dude too, which makes it easier to root for him.

  • He's still the champ. He will pass Jennings, maybe this Monday.

    The guy is amazing. I LOVE watching his awesome knowledge of so many topics. Much respect.

    Sometimes it appears to me he lets the other contestants answer obvious questions, he's that good.

  • There won't be another person like James to come along if ever on jeopardy.

    Unfortunately the person that beat him probably won't win the next show.

    Holzhauer will be in the next Tournament of Champions, and I would bet dollars to donuts Jeopardy will set up a Holzhauer vs. Jennings vs. Rutter match next season.

  • He will come back for a championship round possibly vs Ken Jennings. Speaking of which, latter has to be breathing a sign of relief over that streak.

  • He's back this week on tournament of champions. Don't know which night. I have trouble seeing anyone else beating him.

  • How long til they have another "All-Star" Tournament of Champions so they can pit him against Ken Jennings? Sometime in 2020 I'd guess. Holzhauer = ratings

    Jennings AND Brad Rutter. Rutter has beaten Jennings every time they've faced off except when IBM Watson beat them both.

    Yeah forgot about him.

    Since you guys have seen all 3 what's your opinion on who'll come out on top? I mean I get that a lot of it depends on categories and maybe more importantly, who lands on the Daily Doubles but just interested in your opinions.

    Well, based on adjusted scoring, where they take wagers out of the equation, Holzhauer was outperforming Jennings by about $2,000 per game. But that doesn't really matter when you're talking about how smart they both are. What really matters is how fast they are on the buzzer. I'm really not sure who is king there.

    Yep. ABC beginning January 7th.
    Sadly I have a feeling it could be Alex's last hurrah as host. Just a guess.
