In addition to the usual College Championships, Teen Tournament, and other annual tourneys, the season will kick off with a special Kids Week Reunion. 15 past Kids Week participants from 1999 and 2000 will return to the show, allowing us to catch up with what they've been doing since their initial appearances.
The Tournament of Champions will offer something special as well, recorded live at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, in January. Recorded on the consumer floor of the event, the newly built set will include the newest in electronic equipment.
Celebrity Jeopardy! will return, and will also be filmed live in Las Vegas at the Consumer Electronics Show. Both of these tournament shows will air in the spring of 2009.
We're also told that there will be celebrity matches throughout the season, during which celebs will compete to win money for their favorite charities.
