Ken Jennings tees off

Post by bigmac »

Has anyone else seen this story?

The article did not have a link to the full post, so if someone knows it please post it.

If I were the producer of a long-running and successful show, I would be pretty hesitant to change it, too. Jeopardy is not trying to be quiz bowl, it's trying to get boatloads of people to watch it. And it does. Sure, some of his criticism about the show may be valid and I would like to read it in its entirety, but I am surprised he would bite the hand that fed him like that.

Is it me or does some variant of the robot/cyborg/inhuman joke get told a little too often in quiz bowl circles?
