Jeopardy airs on over the air stations, not cable, though perhaps your local TV stations don't air the show?

I was curious as to what difficulty this question was. It was the 3rd out of 5 ($1200) in double jeopardy. So, they gave it moderate difficulty level I'd say.

Difficultly is in the eyes of the beholder. If you know the answer, its an easy question. If not, its difficult. Contestant who got the CP answer was from Indiana. Makes sense that someone from the Midwest (particularly Ohio, Michigan and Indiana) would have heard about CP. Even if he/she never went to the park or even heard of Steel Vengeance.

Would’ve been an impossible question for me before 2007. Wisconsin resident here never heard of CP from 1971-2007, until we saw a travel channel special. We’ve been going and bringing new people several times a year ever since.
CF does absolutely no marketing in the Green Bay Area ever, I’d imagine they have data on that. Not sure if Tony’s former Milwaukee market gets any advertising or not.
We grew up with Marriotts Great America which was beautiful and a nicely maintained park until Six Flags took over. We didn’t go to SGA for years, been to the Florida big guys several times in those years. When we went to CP it was an absolute shock at what a park can be.
Being from Wisconsin it’s great to find people who have been to CP, someone overhears CP in a conversation and there’s an immediate bond. People who haven’t been, ask if it’s like Six Flags and anyone that’s been to CP tells them nothing like Six at all.

Technically it would have been an impossible question before August 2017. :-)

^ XS, as they say, "a place like no other."

Not sure where Skyhawk06 resides, we are in Sandusky. I have difficulty getting the over the air stations with my antenna here, the Cleveland as well as the Toledo stations. We use a firestick and apps on it. I prefer the Cleveland news, 5 and 19 have free apps that work for news but no other programming, we pay for Sling TV app and get the popular cable channels on that for $27.00 a month. That way we can watch Chopped, Worst Cooks, Come Dine With Me, wife can watch Real Hosewives of ___. With YouTube app. we can watch all the past Judge Judy's & Peoples Court to see the best of American culture as well as Hogans Heros, Green Acres, NFL Films, Looney Toons, nearly any show you want, just not in real time. I miss Jeapordy, used to watch it daily for years when I worked 2nd shift.
