The Current Version Of TV’s “Jeopardy” Began In 1984. Pop Culture TV History.

From the mrpop archives of July 25, 1984:

Interesting – “Jeopardy” – which has been seen on-and-off daytime television since the mid-1960’s is coming back -this time a night time version is being readied for syndication. The show will be produced by Merv Griffin Enterprises which recently sent around a pilot and Jeopardy’s new host, Alex Trebek to talk about it. The new Jeopardy will be more splashy and supped-up – a different look and feel then its predecessors. Look for brighter flashing lights and high-tech TV monitors among otherthings.
