Ken Jennings Says NBC Invited Then Uninvited Him to Quiz Show

Told him he could fly himself though and wouldn't have to wait in line


A million seconds is a lot to keep track of, so it makes sense that NBC's Million Second Quiz has seen some choppy waters in the ratings department. In what Deadline calls a "last-ditch stab for momentum," the show contacted Ken Jennings, (Jeopardy! champion, real-life Quiz Kid Donnie Smith) about coming to appear on the show. Travel plans were quickly assembled, then immediately dissembled.
