NOTICE: SHUTTING DOWN 4 JAN 2015

On January 4, 2015, I will be shutting down the server that hosts The TV IV website. It has been a very long time since I've been able to put any decent amount of time into the site, and ad revenue is plummeting. I think it is time to shut it down or hand it off to someone who can keep it going properly. If you are interested in taking over the site's code and data, contact administrators at tviv.org. --CygnusTMtalk

The All-New Jeopardy! is the third incarnation of the popular game show Jeopardy!. It was the second version to run on NBC and was the final one to feature Art Fleming as the host. The announcer for this version was John Harlan. A couple changes were made to the rules, as stipulated by the network, which Merv Griffin did not like. Particularly, an elimination format was used as well as a different bonus game. This version only lasted five months as a result of these changes and fierce competition.

The first round was played like the original show except the money values were $25, $50, $75, $100 and $125. The low scorer after this round was eliminated from the game but got to keep any money scored. The two remaining players participated in Double Jeopardy, with the money values $50, $100, $150, $200 and $250. The top scorer went on to the Super Jeopardy! bonus game, where the object was to run the board once in each category in sixty seconds for a $5000 cash prize.
