Hit and Miss: Watson wins on 'Jeopardy!'

God created man. Man created Watson. Watson went on to crush man on the TV game show "Jeopardy!" But Watson hasn't declared itself God ... yet. For now, the IBM-created device is reveling in its $77,147 haul after blowing away former "Jeopardy!" champions Ken Jennings, left, and Brad Rutter. For a ratings ploy that made the 27th season of "Jeopardy!'s" current run a headline grabber, it's a hit. For a snapshot of the coming battle of humans versus the machines, we give this one a terrified miss.
