LOS ANGELES, Calif. —
CNN host Wolf Blitzer may know his news, but when it comes to “Jeopardy!,” he may need to hit the trivia books.
In a scene seemingly taken from the “Saturday Night Live” parody, the “Situation Room” host had trouble with a number of questions on an episode of “Jeopardy! Million Dollar Celebrity Invitational Tournament” on Thursday, landing at a score of negative $4,600 at the end of Double Jeopardy.
Wolf flubbed questions about a type of pasta, King David and Jesus’ hometown, an accused person in court, the word “excerpts” and 1850s economics.
Meanwhile, “Tonight Show” sidekick Andy Richter won the show with $68,000 for the St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital, while “Desperate Housewives” actress Dana Delany also had a successful round, finishing second.
