Final Jeopardy: TV in the 2000s
The Final Jeopardy question (10/3/2014), in the category “TV in the 2000s” was:
A key scene of this sitcom’s 2014 finale after 9 seasons was actually filmed in Season 2.
New champ Shawn Choe won $7,200 in yesterday’s game with that awful FJ! In the last game of the week, he is up against these two fellas: Dan Ford, from Cincinnati, OH; and Sam Barker, from Carlisle, PA.
Round 1: Dan found the Jeopardy! round Daily Double in “Nights on Broadway” under the $600 clue. He was in the lead with $1,400, $1,200 more than Sam in second place. He made it a true Daily Double and added an “s” at the end of the day of the week. That made it WRONG.
Mandy Patinkin was the first to play artist Georges Seurat when this musical opened in 1984. show
Dan finished in the lead with $4,800. Sam was second with $2,400 and Shawn was last, in the hole for $1,400.
Round 2: Dan found the first Daily Double in “Vocabulary” under the $1,200 clue. He was now in third place with $6,400, $3,000 less than Shawn’s lead. He bet $2,000 and had no idea, so he was WRONG.
The name of this great grandson of Noah can mean an idiot or a great hunter. show
Shawn found the last Daily Double in “The 20th Century” under the $1,600 clue. In the lead with $10,600, he had $1,000 more than Sam in second place. He bet $600 and thought it was Robert Kennedy. That was WRONG.
On April 3, 1968, he said “So I’m happy tonight. I’m not worried about anything. I’m not fearing any man.” show
Shawn finished in the lead with $10,000. Sam was next with $9,600 and Dan was in third place with $6,400.
TWO of the contestants got Final Jeopardy! right.
“The final scene with Ted’s teenage kids was filmed eight years ago around the start of season 2. This was primarily done because the creators knew the two actors playing Ted’s kids would age as the show moved forward…. [Craig] Thomas elaborated more on the pre-recorded ending back in 2008 to Zap2It. ‘We’ve had a plan since the pilot and we actually shot a little piece of it at the beginning of season two, using the kids, because we knew if we waited until the finale of the series, the kids would have aged like six years. So yeah, part of our plan for how we want to end it all has already been done.'” (Business Insider: Final HIMYM Scene)
Dan got it right. His $4,000 bet brought him up to $10,400.
Sam thought it was “The Family Guy” That cost him $3,201. He finished with $6,399.
Shawn also got it. He bet $9,200 so he won this match with $19,200 and now has a 2-day total of $26,400.
So how did Shawn make that nice comeback after the first round? First he caught up to Dan in the “”D’ in Science” category by getting 4 of the clues right. He picked up the $1,200 one asking for the meaning of DNA after Dan got dinged for thinking they only wanted the ‘D’ part. (They wanted the whole meaning — but it was a bit misleading with the ‘D’ in quotes in the category). Then Shawn got the last 3 clues right in “Legal Matters” (remember, he is an attorney) and that put him in the lead.
