Jeopardy! makes streaming debut on Hulu
Hulu made the announcement Friday, saying it will continuously refresh its lineup of episodes, but gave no indication of how often or how many shows.
Currently, the episodes available are 25 episodes each from seasons 29 from 2012-13, 30 from 2013-14, and 10 episodes from season 31 in 2014-15, all hosted by Alex Trebek (pictured) since 1984.
To kick off the premiere, the 60-episode set comprises collections of some of Jeopardy!’ flagship special events, including a “Tournament of Champions,” a “College Championship”, a “Kids Week,” as well as “Battle of the Decades,” which features some of the show’s fan-favorite contestants from its 35-year history.
With a weekly audience averaging 23 million viewers, Jeopardy! is the top-rated quiz show on TV. It holds the Guinness World Records title for the most Emmy Awards won by a TV game show with 34, including the 2017 Emmy for outstanding game show. Jeopardy! also received a Peabody Award in 2011. The syndicated show’s 35th anniversary season will premiere Monday, Sept. 10, but not immediately on Hulu.
Hulu has been viewable on Apple TV since June of 2010 and the services app – which airs both Hulu and Hulu with Live TV – is available through the AppStore.
