Hallmark of Game Shows ?
When Merv Griffin, or should I say his wife, created "Jeopardy", it was never conceived to reach the heights of intellectual standards it has achieved today. What separates "Jeopardy " from other game shows, are its tough rules which allows limited chances for success and repeat winners. Over the years , this game show has pinnacled many contestants, from all walks of life, some very knowledgeable and some jacks of limited trades. Every week , people would come from out of the darkness to test their skill in the arena of television, against two other unknown combatants. With much success "Jeopardy" provided its viewers with fresh challenges, to joust our minds and prod us to reach new levels within ourselves. There were good players, very good, and then there was "Ken Jennings." An unassuming software engineer from Salt Lake City, Utah. His reign started in June of 2004, it ended on Nov 30th , 2004. For 75 episodes he dazzled us with a staggering display of intellectual prowess, often signaling in, before the answer appeared to register. Often he would make the challengers play catch up, but in one episode, when he was dead last going into Double Jeopardy, like the champion he is, he roared back to take a commanding lead, and left the others in the dust, scratching their heads, and wondering what happened. There will be other champions, they will come and they will go, but when you think of Ken Jennings, you will say ," there he goes , the best there is , the BEST there ever was...."

"Jeopardy", will never be the same, and neither will we.......
