JEOPARDY! ROUND: Baseball, Fruit Stand, 5-Letter Musical Instruments, Time's Person of the Year; England, Scotland or Wales; Ways of Being

Pranjal starts with $600 Fruit Stand, finding the Daily Double in $600 5-Letter Musical Instruments. He made it a true Daily Double on this: "Pipedreams" is a public radio program devoted to this keyboard instrument. "What's the organ?" FOR THE DOUBLER, $4400! He ends up with $8600 to $4800 for Barbara. Zlatan has $2400 and the first clue in ...

DOUBLE JEOPARDY!: Daniel Boone Was a Man, Money Matters, Comedy Tonight, Literary Sisters, Beastly Appendages, Kick Out the "Jam"s

... with $1600 Comedy Tonight. Barbra finds the first Daily Double under $1600 Literary Sisters. She makes it $4000 to go on this: Suellen & Carreen O'Hara are a flighty pair of sisters in this novel. "What is 'The Sound and the Fury'?" No, it was "Gone with the Wind", leaving her with $7200. Pranjal finds the other under $1600 Money Matters. He bets $4600 on this: it's the basic monetary unity of Gibraltar. "What is the pound?" RIGHT for $14,400! He ends up with $13,200 to $10,800 for Barbra. Zlatan is still a factor with $4800.

FINAL JEOPARDY! in "20th Century English Nobility": In Africa on Nov. 26, 1922, he anxiously asked Howard Carter, "Can you see anything?". Correct response: who was Lord Carnarvon?

No one gets it, and to Pranjal, it proves deadly. Barbra plays conservatively to win $8399. Pranjal leaves with $139,088, but he'll be back.

Kevin Smith
"Geeking Out"
Kathryn Hahn
"Bad Moms"
Matt Mira
"Nerdist" podcaster

While you were hauling farm animals in Australia to the tune of Limp Bizkit, we were wondering where it was headed as we continue with @midnight Panderdome at the DNC. Tonight's #HashtagWars: #MotherhoodMovies, something that Kathryn knows a bit about. Kathryn and Matt are tied at 900 to 600 for Kevin.

In act 2, we have Shamilton (musical theatre as edutainment). Tonight's Live Challenge: AI Smithee. The world's first horror movie written by an AI is on the web. Pitch a movie written by an AI. Kathryn gets 1000. Let's make it happen.

First Man Duties is the subject for this speed game. Kevin is done, but we've found his doppelganger if that's any consolation.

FTW: Hillary Clinton is 24 hours away from becoming the official first woman to be a presidential nominee. In 1995, a Walmart pulled a shirt saying "Someday a woman will be president" because it was "offensive". Come up with another shirt that would offend the sensibility of Walmart shoppers. The winner: "Bush Did 9/11 And All I Got Was This Lousy Shirt". And Kathryn Hahn wins the Internet!

Today's funny becomes tomorrow's source material. Continue the game online @midnight.

Justin Adler

JEOPARDY! ROUND: All Things Being Eagle, The Preseason, Hall of Famers, That's Gonna Cost You, Movie Taglines, Wide World of Shorts.

Eric gets it going with 500 The Preseason, finding the Daily Double under 1000 Movie Taglines. He's going for it on this: 2015: "Your legacy is more than a name." "What is 'Creed'?" That would've been right, but he blanks and is blanked as a result. He recovers to 1000 to 2250 for Jaime. Justin, who is 250 down, will get the board as we put the stinker of a J! round behind us and move on to...

DOUBLE JEOPARDY!: All Things Being Eagle, Women Who Ran the World, Baseball Announcers, Are You Better Than A 5th Rounder?, MV"P", Howie Schwab's NCAA Memories

... with 500 MV"P". Eric finds the first Daily Double under 2000 Are You Better Than a 5th Rounder? With a 250 point lead, he bets 3000 on this: in 1977 the Expos took this 2B in the 5th round; 4 years later, he was in the OF & leading the NL in stolen bases. "Who is Tim Raines?" RIGHT for 10,000! Jaime finds the other under 2000 Howie Schwab's NCAA Memories. Leading by 250, he bets that much on this: Howie can't remember how many times he's seen this Big Ten coach who's been in the tournament every year since 1998. "Who is Tom Izzo?" RIGHT for 10,500! He ends up with that much to 10,000 for Eric. Justin has 1750 and can easily spoil.

FINAL SPORTS JEOPARDY! in "Receivers": an NFC East star 1980-93, he's the only receiver in the top 20 for all-time receptions who didn't play a game in the 2000s. Correct response: who is Art Monk?

The champ went all-in and was right. Jaime blanks, and Eric ESCAPES with another one at 20,000, giving him $25,000 for five.
