In what might be a dose of reality for cable news, none of the contestants on Wednesday night’s episode of JEOPARDY could identify House Intel Committee chairman Adam Schiff.

“One-53rd of California’s House delegation is this intelligent committee chairman,” host Alex Trebek said over a photo of Schiff.
The contestants remained silent before the sound indicated none had successfully answered.
“His name is Adam Schiff,” Trebek said.
A December Harvard Harris poll found only 63 percent of registered voters have heard of Schiff, despite wall-to-wall coverage amid impeachment hearings.
The same poll found he has a 28 percent approval rating among respondents.
