Response to malaise (Reply #18)

19. no idea - never dug into details like that

IIRC the season ends somewhere @ Labor Day - that is all I know.

That is @ 12 weeks @ 5 games per week - July 4 = 59. No idea if there are any tournaments in that time.
I once had it figured he would pass Jennings @ July 19th, but didn't factor in the Teacher's tourney.

So he has won 28 - IIRC Jennings won 74 so that leaves him 46 short. So it look like sometime in August?

Here is an interesting tidbit from wikipedia:

He (Jennings) also holds the record for the highest average correct responses per game in Jeopardy! history (for those contestants with at least 300 correct responses) with 35.9 during his original run (no other contestant has exceeded 30)[1] and 33.1 overall including tournaments and special events.[2] That record is currently in danger of being broken by James Holzhauer,[3] who is averaging 36.5 correct responses per episode on a currently active winning streak, though his final actuals will not be known until his streak ends.
