The initial version of the game show aired on daytime TV and lasted until January 3, 1975 before transitioning to the current night time show. Amazingly, the show has had only two hosts:
The show has won numerous awards including 30 Daytime Emmy Awards. The show has also been granted trademark status as “America’s Favorite Quiz Show”. So the New Face of 50 salutes Jeopardy! on 50 years of quizzes.
