Jeopardy! Season 29 Preview

By September 10, 2012

Follow me on:

Jeopardy! kicks off its 29th season next week (Monday, September 17th to be precise). Last season the show earned it's 30th Emmy award (setting a record), scooped up a prestigious Peabody award, and swept the 2012 About.com Readers' Choice Awards.

This season we'll see the return of lots of tournaments plus a new theme week. The tourneys include:
  • Teacher's Tournament, November 7-20
  • Teen Tournament, January 2013
  • Tournament of Champions, February 2013
  • Kids Week
  • College Championship
During this 29th season we're also in for a great theme week: Military Week. Alex Trebek will be making a trip abroad in October to visit military bases and audition potential contestants. Trebek is no stranger to USO tours, having participated in 12 of them since 1987. On this visit, however, service men and women will have the chance to play Jeopardy! and win some money.

Don't forget to tune in on September 17th for the season opener - check your local listings for show times and channels.
