NEW YORK (AP) -- Quiz-show king Ken Jennings has broken another record on "Jeopardy!"
Jennings won $45,099 on the episode that aired Wednesday, bringing his total earnings to $2,197,000 to make him the top TV game-show winner ever.
He beat the previous record of $2,180,000 set by Michigan engineer Kevin Olmstead on ABC's "Who Wants to be a Millionaire" in 2001.
Jennings, a 30-year-old software engineer from Salt Lake City, began his streak on the episode that aired June second.
TV Week reported in September that Jennings lost after his 75th straight win, amassing a total of about $2.5 million. "Jeopardy!" episodes are taped in advance.
