Various sources are reporting that J! is going to have another Super Jeopardy! style tournament, but get this:

150 players will play for the chance to go up against Jennings. Three, including Jennings, will enter the finals -- one shall leave with $2M. $500K is for second place, $250K for third.

Trebek is calling the tourney "The Quest for Ken." No words on if Malibu Barbie will get a provisionary invite.

From a TV/Master Control standpoint, this is going to be a pain in the ass. Episodic TV doesn't get any better than this.

It would almost appear that Jeopardy! seems to be coming to it's end. After they go out with this Quest thingy...what next? Then again...maybe a little change wouldn't be a bad idea, change it up a bit, then go back to the way it's been played for a while.

I don't think it's coming to its end -- this isn't the first time where they've had a "super" tournament. Count the ABC network version at least a decade ago and the Million-Dollar Masters tourney, and you have two tourneys -- all before Ken.

It's a stunt and nothing more. We'll see what happens.

Trebek is calling the tourney "The Quest for Ken."

He should call it "the Quest for rating now that Ken Jennings has lost and the show is in the same place it was ten years ago."
