Subject: Way OT perhaps, Is James Holzhauer's performance on Jeopardy killing the show?

To tell the truth i am feeling very sorry for the folks losing to James now. He seems to me to be enjoying running up his score and not just defeating the other contestants but absolutely CRUSHING them in the games. It has taken the fun outta watching the show the last few days, to the point i hope he goes all in on a daily double late in the game and gives the wrong answer.

He seems to lack some of the humility Ken Jennings had when he went on that win streak , which included Ken himself seemingly amazed how long that streak went.
Anyone else feeling this way?

I agree it's not fun to watch. He will miss a couple of Daily Doubles and eventually lose. I'm hoping the sooner than later though (NT)RussThursday, April 18, 09:52:11am
Agree. He's changed the way it's played, going for the highest paying questions and playing up the Double Jeopardies. I don't see how after he leaves, the game reverts to what it was. (NT)They need to put new limits in - maybe the pre-Jennings 5 day limitThursday, April 18, 11:50:36am
