News Brief: Jeopardy to Be Repeated Wednesday Night

May 24, 2005 – Fans of Jeopardy, don't despair. TV 2 says that everybody will be able to see Ken Jennings in the ultimate Jeopardy championship on Wednesday evening.
The show had originally been scheduled for 6:30 Monday, but when anxious viewers tuned in they were greeted by a Caribbean tourism production.
Josephine Lindquist, TV 2 producer, said Tuesday morning that the problem is the station's satellite feed for the show was changed. "I have been on the phone since Monday trying to find out what the problem is,"she said. "Kingworld Domestic Distribution, which handles Jeopardy, promised today that they have FedExed the tapes to us. They are supposed to be here tomorrow. Lindquist said tomorrow's lineup will cover the three championships shows with Jennings, along with the following two shows.
Wednesday's lineup:
– 6 p.m. first Jennings championship show.
– 6:30 p.m. second Jennings championship show.
– 7 p.m. TV 2 news.
– 7:30 Oprah (one hour).
– 8:30 p.m. third Jennings championship show.
– 9 p.m. – regular Jeopardy show.
– 9:30 p.m. regular Jeopardy show.
Lindquist said the above schedule is on tap "if all goes well." She said she has been flooded with dismayed viewers' phone calls. Monday night's show was the one Jeopardy fans have been awaiting for months. Lindquist said it is her hope that the distribution company will continue to FedEx Express the tapes until the satellite problem is resolved. She said, "We're keeping our fingers crossed."
Lindquist said she may be contacted at 774-2200, ext. 233.
