Most Mainers Won’t See James Holzhauer on Jeopardy! Tonight
Fans across the nation and the world have been watching each night as contestant James Holzhauer shatters records and crushes opponents on Jeopardy! If you live in Maine though, you won't be seeing Jeopardy! tonight. As popular as James winning streak is right now, there's something even more popular: The NFL draft.
ABC affiliates will be showing coverage of the draft beginning at 7 p.m. meaning that Wheel of Fortune and Jeopardy! will not air on Friday night. WMTW 8 in Portland and WVII 7 in Bangor are ABC affiliates which also air Wheel and Jeopardy! The only station in Maine showing Jeopardy! Friday night will be WAGM 8 in Presque Isle, a CBS affiliate.
Jeopardy! fans, who would not be able to answer any questions in the category "Talkin' Football," like the contestants on this episode, are going to be disappointed.
If you'e been following James run on Jeopardy! you know he now stands at a 16-day winning streak with big Daily Double and Final Jeopardy wagers to give him a total of $1,225,987. So far, no one has even come close to catching him.
Luckily Portland's WMTW 8 will show Friday's episode of Jeopardy! on Saturday, April 27 at 7:30 p.m. Bangor's WVII will move Jeopardy! to Fox 22 on Friday night at its usual time. If you don't want to be spoiled, you might was to stay off the internet until then.
