(CBS/AP) IBM supercomputer Watson took home the winning title on "Jeopardy!" Wednesday after beating TV quiz show champions Ken Jennings and Brad Rutter.

Watson won with an impressive lead of $77,147 after two exhibition matches.

Jennings racked up $24,000 while Rutter logged $21,600.

For crushing his rivals, Watson gets a total prize of $1 million, which IBM has said will go to the charities World Vision and World Community Grid.

The vanquished Jennings and Rutter get $300,000 and $200,000 respectively, half of which each said they would be donating to charities.

Jennings of Salt Lake City offered a sense of humor along with his final Jeopardy clue in Wednesday's show, writing, "I for one welcome our new computer overlords," alongside the correct response.
