“Jeopardy!,” one of the most popular programs in the history of television, has been an early evening staple in a number of markets for decades.
In at least 61 markets, viewers now will get “a double dose of game play with the debut of ‘Daytime Jeopardy!,’ according to an announcement from the show’s producer, Sony Pictures Television. “Jeopardy!” is distributed by CBS Television Distribution.
The announcement says beginning this month “ ‘Jeopardy!’ will air afternoon reruns on ABC stations in several markets, including New York, Los Angeles, Philadelphia and others across the country.”
Besides those three major markets, “Daytime Jeopardy!” will also air in Dallas, San Francisco, Atlanta, Houston and Detroit, among other markets.
