Jeopardy! America’s Favorite Quiz Show March 29, 2012

Posted by Emma in Thoughtful Ramblings.

Created by Merv Griffin, the “thinking person’s” show Jeopardy premiered on March 30, 1964. Griffin also composed the show’s theme song “Think” originally as a lullaby for his son. Jeopardy was on the air from 1964-1975 and again from 1978-1979. The show returned in 1984. Over the years dollar amounts have changed; the amount of money a contestant can win has changed; and the number of times an individual may appear on the show has changed, but the basic premise of the show has never changed. Players given answers must come up with questions in the form of a question.

If you decide to try and become a contestant on Jeopardy, the library is a great place to check out materials to help you prepare for the online test. At my house watching the show has been a favorite past time for many years, and we’re all pretty good players as long as it’s in the comfort of our living room.
