My opening statement can be paraphrased as "The two shows are targetting completely different demographics - Jeopardy is going after viewers with brains, Millionaire isn't so focussed".
Conor, unbeknownst to me, is a big fan of Millionaire (and Regis!) and so seemed to take offense. Neither of was able to convince the other of the error of his ways (much like many TEG chats) through subsequent discussion.
By coincidence, Jeopardy was playing when I got back to the hotel room. Final Jeopardy was:
"In 2005, Broadway's Virginia Theater was renamed to honour this late author, the first African-American so honoured"I think that pretty much sums it up - the average Millionaire viewer probably thinks "Broadway" is a particularly wide stock car track.
Conor, are you going to use one of your lifelines?
