Jeopardy' To Host Robert Gibbs for New Washington 'Power Players' Segment


The popular television game show Jeopardy appears to have decided there's one demographic it hasn't yet monopolized nearly as effectively as it could - namely, Washington insiders. To that end, the game show is devoting an entire week to hosting Washington's biggest names on the show, calling it the "Power Players Week."

However, some of the people who have been announced as contestants might be better suited for other game shows - like "Are You Smarter Than a Fifth Grader?" The Washington Post brings us the first announced lineup, which includes some familiar and cringe-worthy names:

First up is former White House press secretary Robert Gibbs, MSNBC’s Chris Matthews and CNN’s Lizzie O’Leary.


Some of the other people who will apparently appear on the show include Fox News' Chris Wallace, comedian Lewis Black and New York Times columnist Thomas Friedman. Presumably, news stories and (in Friedman's case) "stories heard in cabs" will not be accepted as proposed categories for questions.
