"THE TERROR makes Jeopardy!"
I scoffed at this whole idea, thinking that Jeopardy was pretty good even before the Terror question, so it didn't "make" Jeopardy. But then I overheard this guy who was saying that he never used to watch the show until someone mentioned the series. And then another time, it was a woman: She appeared to be saying exactly the same thing!! She had heard that it had been one of the questions. So don't quote me, but it may be true.
The kicker to all this is that Jeopardy viewership doubled afterwards, according to Nielsen, and our host said, "I'll not deny it" (AP report).
