School of  Law professor Junichi Semitsu appeared on the TV show Who Wants to be a Millionaire? in mid-January for two nights. After correctly guessing the answer to the $25,000 question with the help of his “phone a friend” lifeline (turns out the Rosetta Stone features writing in both Egyptian and Greek), Semitsu ultimately came up with the wrong answer to the $50,000 question (“According to the U.S. Census Bureau, of approximately 197 million eligible voters in 2004, about how many voted in the presidential election?”). The professor’s guess was 85 million, but the correct answer was, in fact, 125 million. Nonetheless, Semitsu walked away with a cool $25,000.
