Just as I was complimenting Slashdot on the occasional useful article, they run this to prove me wrong.
I've been a fan of Jeopardy for many years, and frankly, I think Ken Jennings is one of the worst things that's happened to the game. Quite probably, any of the other previous 5-day champs could have gone this far if they had been allowed to continue indefinitely.
More power to Ken -- may he strike the million mark -- but for viewers like me, the game has become dull. The addition of new players once a week (or so) used to keep it fresh. No longer.
