She will appear again on the popular TV game show on Thursday and Friday, when the two-part finals air at 7 p.m. on KGO-TV (ABC). As she has during each of the first two televised rounds, Peters will be with friends and fellow quiz show enthusiasts at Pappy’s on Telegraph Avenue to watch what happens. The show was taped last month.

In Friday’s round, Peters beat students from North Carolina State and Brown University. Her opponents for Thursday’s finals will be the winners of semifinal rounds airing tonight and tomorrow night.

Highlights of the quarterfinal round can be viewed on the Jeopardy! website.
