    Young Man Wins Jeopardy! Teen Tournament With Best Answer Ever [Video]

    If you watch Jeopardy! regularly then you know how the rules work. If you don't watch Jeopardy! regularly, you need to reassess your priorities because you're missing a perfect half hour of television. If a contestant goes into Final Jeopardy with more than twice as much money as their opponents, they can not lose. That was the case last night when Leonard Cooper won $75,000 in the Teen Tournament by giving one of the best Jeopardy! answers of all time, because he knew his answer didn't matter.

    Watson Comes Back with a Vengeance in Part II of Human-Robot Jeopardy! Challenge

    Punny questions and determined human opponents may have ground IBM's Watson supercomputer to a tie in the first part of its televised Jeopardy! match, but part two saw it regenerating like an angry T-1000 and blowing its former Jeopardy! champ competitors out of the water. Whereas the score ended at $5000-$5000-$2000 after part one, Watson won the match with a final score of $35,734 to its opponents' $10,400 and $4,800. You can watch Watson's whole remarkable performance below. Still, there was one odd glitch on Final Jeopardy. You can see what happened at the 6:30 mark of the second video below:

    After a month of buildup, anticipation, and Skynet-induced fright, IBM's Watson supercomputer made its big Jeopardy! debut on TV, and the result was (SPOILER ALERT) a tie. But an interesting sort of tie. Watson and human Brad Rutter both ended round one of the quiz show tied at $5,000 each, with former Jeopardy! champ Ken Jennings trailing at $2,000. Earlier in the match, though, things looked a lot grimmer for mankind: At one point, the score was $200 for each human, $5,200 for Watson.

    Alex Trebek Loses All Dignity With His Own Auto-Tune Category on Jeopardy [Video]

    Outside of very specific cases, auto-tune and old TV personalities or public figures don't really mix. Last night's episode of Jeopardy was not one of those cases. Last night in the Double Jeopardy round, one category was "Alex Meets Auto-Tune," wherein Alex Trebek would sing the lyrics to songs in Auto-Tune with some fresh beats pumping in the background, and contestants had to identify the song. I don't want to spoil any of the fun by telling you the specific ridiculous bits before you watch, so let's get straight to the video:
