Google, 'Jeopardy!' play home game
Empty"Jeopardy!" has answered the question of how to integrate the online world with the classic game show through the Jeopardy! Google Daily Challenge.
Beginning Friday, viewers who log on to Jeopardy.com will find an additional clue/answer drawn from one of the featured categories from that day's broadcast, to which they can use the Google search application to find the correct answer. Online participants will be entered into a sweepstakes for a chance to win the daily $100 prize or the $25,000 grand prize.
The contest, which will continue through July 13 with a new clue posted each day, was made possible through a collaboration between Sony Pictures Television and Google.
" 'Jeopardy!' and Google are the perfect complement to each other," "Jeopardy!" executive producer Harry Friedman said. "America's top-rated quiz show provides the answers, and the Web's No. 1 search engine helps you find the correct question."
"Jeopardy!" is produced by Sony Pictures Television, a Sony Pictures Entertainment Co., and distributed by CBS Television Distribution, a unit of CBS Corp.
