This episode of the game show “Jeopardy” was one of the first in history to see only one contestant make it to the final round.

Answer: What is Wednesday’s episode?

In a “Jeopardy” moment that host Alex Trebek described as “not one of our greatest days,” two of the three competitors finished the Double Jeopardy round with a negative score, meaning they would not advance to Final Jeopardy.

As a result, Kristin Sausville — the returning champion — found herself all alone on stage with Trebek.

“Kristin, I think you’re going to win,” Trebek said.

Still, it was close, since Sausville still had to contend with a question regarding FDR and the Social Security Administration.
