Last Night On Jeopardy!: Chuck Caps Clarence and the Comedian

Last night was night four of the “Jeopardy!” “Power Players” week, which features journalists and Washington D.C. elites playing for charity. The contestants were “Daily Show” regular and comedian Lewis Black, NBC News White House correspondent and MSNBC “Daily Rundown” anchor Chuck Todd, and columnist Clarence Page.

As usual, the “Jeopardy! writers had some fun with the categories, which included “The Daily Rundown” (about important days), “Page Turners” (about books and authors) and “Fade to ‘Black’” (clues where the answer had “black” in the name.

All three were strong competitors, with no real missteps, though Todd this miss a fairly obvious answer in the “Daily Rundown” category about Thanksgiving.

The final category was “Sporting Events,” which seemingly gave an edge to Todd, given his history with outlets such as Sports Business Daily. Nonetheless, every player failed to guess the correct answer, The Kentucky Derby, with Todd and Black guessing the U.S. Open.

Todd had garnered just enough of  a lead over Page so as he couldn’t be caught, even with the wrong answer in Final Jeopardy!, and the result was $50,000 for his charity.
