Andy Richter Controls the Board

As anyone who knows me is already aware of, I’m still waiting for my chance to either do well or flame out spectacularly on JEOPARDY! And while I wait, I get email from HQ about special events.

Your favorite celebrity contestants return to compete in the “Jeopardy! Million Dollar Celebrity Invitational!” Each month, three bright stars battle it out to raise funds for their special causes, with one million dollars serving as the grand prize. The first round of the star-studded competition begins this Thursday, September 17th with CNN host Wolf Blitzer, actress Dana Delany, and comedian Andy Richter.

The show’s doubtless already been taped, but I have absolutely no inside information apart from the fact that there’s no way in hell I would consider Wolf Blitzer a “bright star.” I don’t know enough about Delaney to gauge her intellectual chops, but just the law of averages says she’s gotta be smarter than Wolf. I didn’t watch Richter on Conan O’Brien’s old show, but based on what I saw in the sitcoms Andy Richter Controls the Universe and Andy Barker, P.I., my money’s on him for the win.
