"Jeopardy! fans can be found at dives across the country, from Washington D.C. to Kentucky," says Tim Donnelly, adding: "Jeopardy! fits snugly inside dive culture: Its air time catches the after-work crowd a few beers deep and eager to show off by yelling answers. It’s over before most sports get started in earnest, quicker than a baseball game and at times more fast-paced than even basketball. It doesn’t zap conversation for those disinterested in watching, unlike like pub trivia, but it can be interactive and full of promise: maybe you, sitting on a stool, two Budweisers in, are smarter than a Jeopardy! champion."
