"Jeopardy!" may be considered one of the smartest shows on television, but even smart shows can make a boneheaded decision or two.
Take Monday's edition of the Alex Trebek-hosted game show, whose category "What Women Want" has touched off a social media firestorm.
"What Women Want" isn't a bad idea for a category, actually, but the "answers" proved incendiary when they indicated ladies largely desire jeans, exercise and vacuum cleaners.
Twitter users (including "Chicago P.D." actress Sophia Bush) jumped all over the category:
Sounds like what women (and some men) really want is a do-over.
This isn't the first time the venerable game show has come under criticism for the way it's handled women, either as category topics or as contestants. A March article on Salon noted that Trebek seems a little tone-deaf to women's success on the show, while in 2013 the same publication suggested that the category answers trend toward featuring men (except for ones like "Someone's In the Kitchen").
A "Jeopardy!" rep told TODAY they had "no comment at this time."
But there is a small glimmer of light: (Spoiler alert!) A woman, Elisa Korn, was the big winner on Monday.
