Hulu now offers “Jeopardy!”
Sit back with Alex Trebek
For the last 35 years “Jeopardy!” has lived happily on syndicated television but now the popular game-show is joining the Hulu library. To celebrate the premiere of the series on the video-streaming service, Hulu has curated collections from some of the “Jeopardy!” special events that have taken place over the years. Hulu has included a Tournament of Champions, a College Championship, and 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, like all-time money winner Brad Rutter and long-running champion Ken Jennings.
With a weekly audience of 23 million viewers, “Jeopardy!” is the top-rated quiz show on television and has won numerous awards and distinctions over the course of its 35 years on the air, including the 2017 Emmy for Outstanding Game Show. The show holds the Guinness World Records title for the most Emmy Awards won by a TV game show (coming in hot with 34 Emmys); it is also the recipient of a 2011 Peabody Award. “Jeopardy!” fans can look forward to the 35th anniversary season, which is set to premiere on September 10th.
“Jeopardy” is produced by Sony Pictures Television, a Sony Pictures Entertainment Company; it is distributed domestically by CBS Television Distribution and internationally by CBS Television International, both units of CBS Corp.
Last month Hulu confirmed that it had picked up the final season of “UnREAL”. Season four of UnREAL follows Rachel (Shiri Appleby) and Quinn (Constance Zimmer) as they return to the set of Everlasting for an “All-Stars” themed season. With former contestants, and a new format, this season is poised to be even more dramatic than ever. Co-creator Sarah Gertrude Shapiro and showrunner Stacy Rukeyser both return for Season 4. New cast members include François Arnaud, Natalie Hall, Meagan Holder and Alejandro Muñoz. Constance Zimmer returns as director for one episode, and Shiri Appleby directs two episodes, including the series finale.
Following its first season, UnREAL quickly became one of the standout drama series of 2015, winning a prestigious Peabody Award and earning spots on “Best of” year-end lists including TV Guide, The Wall Street Journal, New York Times, Variety, Hollywood Reporter and Buzzfeed. The series has also received an AFI Award, two Emmy Award nominations, and Critics’ Choice Awards nominations, including “Best Drama Series;” “Best Actress in a Drama,” Shiri Appleby; and won for “Best Supporting Actress in a Drama Series,” Constance Zimmer.
