Daily Double - Maybe

Coming across the Daily Doubles in the TV game show Jeopardy! can quickly propel contestants into the lead.  They do not have to compete with others to come up with the question and they can wager a large sum. In 2014 contestant Arthur Chu upset Jeopardy! traditionalists by bouncing around the board hoping to hit upon a Daily Double. Using data from the fan site J!Archive, Nathan Yau from Flowing Data has tabulated the locations of the Daily Doubles for 31 seasons totaling 13,633 Daily Doubles and shown them as relative frequencies. The darker the color the more likely a Daily Double for that position. Clearly, the fourth row is most favored by a small amount.
