We now have the details for the Jeopardy “Power Players” edition that is coming to D.C. It tapes this weekend and starts Saturday morning. The first round will see MSNBC’s Chris Matthews battle Lizzie O’Leary from CNN and former POTUS Press Secretary, Robert Gibbs. Their game will tape at 10am ET. After that, Fox News’ Dana Perino will battle CNBC’s David Faber and basketball player Kareem Abdul-Jabbar. Because when we think Washington D.C. power players, we think Kareem Abdul-Jabbar. After that, BBC’s Katty Kay faces down Fox’s Chris Wallace and Dr. Mehmet Oz. Again, Oprah’s doctor isn’t the first person that pops to mind when we think D.C. Power Players but he can talk poop with the best of ‘em. Following that meeting of the minds, CNN’s Anderson Cooper meets MSNBC’s Kelly O’Donnell and NYT columnist and all-around big-brain Thomas L. Friedman. The final matchup tapes at 6:35pm ET and features MSNBC’s Chuck Todd, comedian Lewis Black and Chicago Tribune’s Clarence Page.
