It's bad enough to come in last place on any game show, but when you're one of the top personalities of a cable news channel who gets absolutely demolished by a comedian and an actress, you might want to rethink your career.

On Thursday's Jeopardy Million Dollar Celebrity Invitational, CNN's Wolf Blitzer was matched up against comedian Andy Richter and Emmy-winning actress Dana Delaney.

Embarrassingly, Blitzer actually finished Double Jeopardy with a score of -$4,600 (video embedded below the fold):

Those interested can watch the entire massacre blow by blow:

Nice job, Wolf!

*****Update: Having now watched the entire match, I have to conclude that Blitzer was either really nervous, hung-over, or is an amazing dope. Here's a perfect example from Double Jeopardy, category is about decades in the U.S.:

A. The 1850s saw a bad one of this 5-letter word that refers to an economic crash and the fear-driven rush to sell.

Blitzer's question: What is a crash?

I kid you not!!!
