I was excited to hear this is on ABC.
It's the only channel we can get over the air here.

Great first match last night. I was also having trouble keeping up with the triple clues. These guys are amazing.

Thanks. I'll check this out while trying to avoid this thread.

Doesn't matter who wins this thing. Brad is the GOAT and has proven it over multiple tournaments and Ken and James both know it and act like they know it. It's still incredibly entertaining to watch as all three are just incredible levels of smart.

They are really on top of their game. Extremely impressive.

Anyone else find it odd that James just seems to disappear and not ring in for 5 or 6 questions in a row sometimes? Even when he was on his winning streak I noticed this.

Feel bad for Brad. He is a good player, but James and Ken are at another level.

It is really going to come down to who hits the daily doubles and then if they get them right, along with a tougher final jeopardy question (the last question today was tough). I feel like James is slightly better than Ken, but I think the luck of the game will determine the winner.

Not sure what others think, but I'm going to suggest that people should try to hide same-day spoilers for the duration, and not worry after the same day.

Ah man, I'm just yelling at my TV through this. Absolutely the pinnacle.

Pretty good banter between the champs despite being completely clean and sportsmanlike.

My money was really on Brad, I've been surprised. He looks outclassed.

Also I think the New Testament is fair game period. Any Jew who would make it this far had better know the Bible, royals, Shakespeare, etc- the real bread and butter categories.
