Jeopardy! (1984)

``Jeopardy!'' is a classic game show -- with a twist. The answers are given first, and the contestants supply the questions. Three contestants, including the previous show's champion, compete in six categories and in three rounds (with each round's ``answers'' being worth more prize money). In the third round, ``Final Jeopardy,'' the contestants can name their own jackpot -- as long as it's within the amount of money they've already earned. If a player finishes the second round with zero dollars, they are eliminated from ``Final Jeopardy.'' The first version of ``Jeopardy!,'' which aired from 1964 to 1975 on NBC, was hosted by Art Fleming. Alex Trebek is the current host; he began with the program in 1984 (at the start of its syndicated run).
