I do love the wheel's sharpness for reverting to its original red walls! I just wish that the little red bulbs would return or have the Pricedown dollar signs in gold, but it is very pretty as the HD resolution of the show would make the color scheme look even better!

I daresay I quite like that look for the wheel. Less busy than the square pattern. The gold was fine and made sense for the 50th anniversary but red has always been the wheel's definitive color.

This thread has not been updated in a few weeks, and I'm not sure if this will continue to be utilized into Season 39 onward, but there's a plethora of updates regarding the show!

First off, Second Chance will take place from October 17-28 in two week-long spurts. Each of the two weeks will consist of three qualifying games, with the winners advancing to a two-day final, with the winners of each week advancing to the TOC. The link to the players and bracket can be found below.

Inside Jeopardy! launched on Monday, August 1, will release weekly episodes on Monday around roughly 10:00 pm on the east coast. Michael Davies and Sarah Witcomb Foss host the show.


Over the past two weeks they've talked about a LOT:

- Ken and Mayim will do their first ever joint interview on the podcast towards the beginning of S39.
- A J! book club, which was hinted at in February, is still in the works.
- The teen tournament may be revived/rebranded as a high school week.
- Ed Coulson, who competed during the final week of S38, was the professors tournament alternate.
- Davies attributes the uptick in superchamps to the changing and evolving nature of general knowledge, while Sarah attributes it to the "game show gods".
- There will be a new TOC structure, which will be unveiled on next week's episode, in which Buzzy Cohen will appear.
- Davies discussed about Jeopardy! Masters League, which he would like to do live, whether in Primetime or on streaming, he's also open to the idea of Ken, James, and Buzzy playing again, in spite of bending the host/contestant rules.
- Johnny's home studio is referred to as "Studio J".
- One of the initial changes Davies made was how Mayim would look over to where Johnny was in spite of him not being there, and redirecting her to the front camera, citing its lack of authenticity.
- The staff thought Amy would lose her tenth game to Pam Schoenberg, as she had 4 more correct responses heading into final than Amy.
- Sarah and Davies talked to Sadie Goldberger about the whole Harriet Tubman controversy and replayed her writing out her response several times to be sure they were making the right call.
- The show makes judging decisions with "sound logic and equity".
- The stylus pen times out with the FJ! music.
- Contestants have 5 minutes to make their FJ! wager, with a 30 second warning given.
- Ken is known to watch old footage of Alex to pick up tips and pointers.
- The inaugural Jeopardy! Honors will be held at Stage 10 on September 19, the day before the TOC tapes. Tony Griffin and Jean Trebek will be in attendance.
- Alex Trebek, Merv and Julanne Griffin, Harry Friedman, and Johnny Gilbert will be part of the inaugural Jeopardy! Hall of Fame class.
- Michael has great respect for Harry Friedman as a producer and called him to make him aware of his induction.
- Sarah called Johnny personally
- Future HOF classes will include superchamps.
- A dedication to Art Fleming is not out of the question.
- Award categories at the J! Honors will include best sportsmanship, best dressed, and best penmanship.
- The podcast will eventually be offered in video form on Youtube.

Small change for the big wheel this season, plain red instead of gold behind the $.

I love the return of the red walls. They look great behind the big dollar signs.

Are you implying that the show continued to evolve and change after season 41? No, I'm pretty sure the world revolves around my own personal experiences.

Now if you'll excuse me, I'm off to petition the show to bring back Check Game.
Next you'll petition for Mike Richards to be removed as executive producer.
