’Jeopardy! The Greatest of All Time’: Who won the first round?

Holzhauer finished in second place after the first round of the tournament, which continues Wednesday and Thursday at 8 p.m. on ABC. The faceoff of Jeopardy! champs Holzhauer, Jennings and Brad Rutter kicked off their best-of-3 showdown for a $1M prize. Rutter ended the night with the measly $10,400 from the first game. That changed in the second round.

Ken Jennings got a chance in the first game to double his winnings with the Daily Double, and though he hesitated at first, he made a decision to put all his winnings on the line to try and take a sizable lead. It's worth noting that Rutter too tried the James Holzhauer strategy of going all in on Daily Doubles, but lost his winnings a couple times in doing so. All three men are in the "Jeopardy!".

Jennings and Rutter said they studied footage of Holzhauer to prepare.

In the third round, Jennings correctly identified the name of the woman encountered by the hero in A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court, but missed a clue related to Elvis Presley.

Everything came down to the final category, which was astronomers. Each night's competition will consist of two standard games.

Jennings, who holds the "Jeopardy!" record with 74 straight victories, got a big win in the first game, getting 45,000 points, topping Holzhauer by 16,600.

Jeopardy's! earning record is still held by Brad Rutter, who won $4,788,436 over a five day winning streak in 2000, as well as two cars.

Answer: This television game show, airing in its current incarnation of daily syndication for 35 years after first premiering in 1964, has won a record 33 Daytime Emmy Awards, a Peabody Award, and, in the last few months, revealed itself to be one of Peak TV's must-watch shows.
