IBM's Watson wound up in a tie on Monday, as the first round of what would normally be only a half show was stretched with promotional videos touting its real language artificial intelligence capabilities.

On Tuesday, Watson's dollar total dwarfed the human competitors, but it got the night's Final Jeopardy geography question wrong.

The man with the longest running win streak on "Jeopardy!," Ken Jennings, talked about battling fellow human Brad Rutter & Watson.

The match concludes Wednesday night. Andy is still employed.

Videos: MSNBC, Slate & TBS.
