Sony Dumbs Down Jeopardy With Google’s Help

jeopardy4.jpg

Sony’s launching an online Jeopardy game that basically encourages cheating. The Jeopardy! Google Daily Challenge lets online players use Google to search for an answer to a new question posted daily. Participants are automatically entered into a sweepstakes for a chance to win $100 daily or a $25,000 grand prize.

Winning is thus based on how well the player can match Google’s ideas of answers.

Jeopardy! Executive Producer Harry Friedman says “America’s top-rated quiz show provides the answers and the web’s number one search engine helps you find the correct question.”

So, will the TV program change format to let us watch people type in search terms? Snore.
