    At some point James will probably start doing that all the time and also ripping loud sauerkraut farts just because he can.

    The game show drew a bigger same-day audience than any primetime show in the week of April 29.

    James Holzhauer's 22-game Jeopardy winning streak continues to push the show's ratings higher.

    The syndicated game show drew its best household rating in 14 years in the week of April 29. Jeopardy's 8.3 mark among households was its highest since March 2005.


    Jeopardy averaged 13.28 million daily viewers for the week. That was better than the same-day audiences for every Nielsen-rated show in primetime, including CBS' broadcast leader The Big Bang Theory (12.49 million viewers) and the initial tune-in for HBO's Game of Thrones(11.8 million, not including streaming).

    Jeopardy's ratings have climbed steadily during Holzhauer's streak. In his first full week of shows (April 8-12), the show averaged 10.09 million viewers. It grew to 10.67 million the week of April 15, then 11.97 million and 13.28 million — a gain of almost 32 percent over those four weeks. Household ratings have gone up by nearly 30 percent (6.4 to 8.3) in the same time frame.

    Incredible.

    This just does not happen.

    I’d love to know what his medication treatment is. I’m sure it’s chemo but there has to be a radical new drug or pilot study as well.

    That would surprise me, too. That's roughly the most I've ever lost on a bet and he's much more of a high roller (pre-Jeopardy run) than I am or will ever likely be.

    That said, back in the day he was big on futures and then hedging them out. So he might put a big amount on futures on a baseball team at the beginning of the season and then hedge it either by betting other futures over the course of the season or by betting against them in the playoffs.

    He also focuses on live betting now where it would be hard to get more than 20k in play in a single game since limits aren't super high compared to pre-game lines.
