I'm sure that it's height of popularity is gone, but none the less it still get's substantial ratings. Starting tomorrow it's Man VS. Machine. That's right, two of the show's mega-champions, Ken Jennings and Brad Rutter are going to face a computer in the ultimate intelligence test. These two gentlemen will be pitted against IBM's newest computer named Watson, which is designed to play Jeopardy at the highest level.  Does man have what it takes to compete against Watson? Tune in tomorrow on your local channel and at the local time and watch the as the games begin.
