Ken Jennings Gets a Can of Gasoline and a Book of Matches...

...and burns Jeopardy to a crisp.

Sometimes when something helped make someone rich and famous, they will gently tweak that very same thing in a playful way, and through gentle humor you get a little chuckle about some of the foibles of that person or institution.

This was not friendly... but it was funny as all hell. It was in layman's terms a huge bitch slap. When I read about the new categories he suggested, like "Skanks from Reality TV Who Got Naked in Men’s Magazines," I just about died.

After seeing it from the inside as the show's biggest winner, he did get so many things right. It was a thing of beauty truly it was, and I would love to see some angry bees, ventriloquist’s dummies and a Clues Crew survivor game. Who wouldn't?

Yeah, I do think Jeopardy could use a reimaging.

Kyle: Yes, because look at how many times Wheel of Fortune has changed over the years.

AA: If they are getting trapped in the woods, I would have a few choices as well.
