Watch 'Jeopardy' Pander to Millennials with a 'Rick and Morty' Round
Published Jul 05, 2018Every so often, Jeopardy tries pandering to the millennial crowd by referencing contemporary pop culture, usually in the form of host Alex Trebek rapping things. This time, the long-running quiz show is courting a far nerdier sect: Rick and Morty fans.
In the "Double Jeopardy" round of tonight's episode, all six categories are named after several of many catchphrases and iconic lines from Rick and Morty, including "Show Me What You Got," "Keep Summer Safe," "My 'MAN,'" "You Pass Butter" and "& That's the Way the News Goes," plus one flat-out titled "Rick & Morty," for good measure.
Hopefully this goes better than the time McDonald's tried to cash in on Rick and Morty mania by reviving its limited-edition Szechuan sauce, which resulted in riots.
