What Is Jeopardy: The Greatest of All Time About?
Jeopardy! The Greatest of All Time was a primetime Jeopardy! tournament featuring the three highest-earning contestants, Ken Jennings, Brad Rutter, and James Holzhauer, competing in a first-to-3-wins series with a top prize of $1 million to determine the greatest Jeopardy! contestant "of all time." The series is produced by Sony Pictures Television and executive produced by Harry Friedman, with Alex Trebek hosting.
Jennings holds the record for the longest winning streak on Jeopardy! with 74 wins and is the highest-earning contestant in regular-play (non-tournament) winnings. Rutter was and still is the highest-earning contestant (including tournaments) on the show, with a total over $4.6 million before the tournament. Holzhauer holds the top 16 single-game records for winnings. The three players have won a combined $10.7 million on the show.
The tournament began on January 7, 2020, on ABC, marking the first time in 30 years that Jeopardy! has aired in prime time on network television. (ABC's owned-and-operated stations carry the regular Jeopardy! series in the largest U.S. television markets, but the daily program is syndicated to affiliates of other networks in many other areas.)
The tournament concluded on January 14, after four matches, with Jennings winning three matches to Holzhauer's one and Rutter's zero. Not counting Watson's exhibition match, this marked the first time Rutter lost to Jennings (or any human opponent) in a tournament. Including winnings from other game shows, Jennings' total of $5,223,414 now exceeds Rutter's total of $5,138,436, making him the highest-earning American game show contestant of all time, a record he last held in 2014.
The tournament consisted of a series of one-hour episodes, with each episode a stand-alone match consisting of two back-to-back complete Jeopardy! games, using points instead of dollars. Each game included three rounds: Jeopardy!, Double Jeopardy!, and Final Jeopardy! The contestant with the most combined points from the two games won the match, and play continued until one of them had won three matches.
