NEW YORK (AP) — Matt Amodio's historic run on "Jeopardy!" has now netted him more than $1 million in non-tournament play, making him the third person in the show's history to pass that mark.
The only other contestants to win more than $1 million in regular season games are Ken Jennings, whose 74-game streak netted $2,520,700, and James Holzhauer, who earned $2,462,216 over 32 victories.
Amodio, a fifth-year computer science Ph.D student at Yale University, on Friday won $48,800 for his 28th victory, bringing his total winnings to $1,004,001.
Amodio's latest milestone came at the end of temporary host Mayim Bialik's first week back behind the lectern in the wake of the departure of host and executive producer Mike Richards. Bialik will share hosting duties with Jennings through the end of the year.

Before joining the establishment, Leno was the most brilliant stand-up on the circuit, griping about trivial matters in suits so loud that you reached for your sunglasses. His frequent appearances on “Late Night With David Letterman” were pivotal in making his future rival’s show the hippest joint on TV.
Booking your girlfriend can be tricky. Booking your ex-girlfriend can be downright dangerous. Jimmy Kimmel has done both with wild success. They’ve continued to have superb on-screen chemistry, although nothing can match her on-air “confession” that she was cheating on him with Matt Damon.
