Season 24 (2007-2008)Edit

Season changes:

  • At the beginning of this season, CBS Television Distribution is now currently producing Jeopardy!, its sister show Wheel of Fortune, and other syndicated shows. The CBS Television Distribution logo first appeared on the September 27, 2007 episode. For the logo's first appearance, the 1998-2006 KingWorld audio cue is still heard instead of the normal one; afterward, it is discarded in favor of CBS Television Distribution's own music cue, a synthesized violin fanfare.
  • This is the last season to have the 2001-2008 theme, and the 1997-2008 "Think!" cue.
  • This is also the last season where the 1984-2008 "Board Fill" sound effect is used.
  • The opening credits have changed to a bluish-black starry night background and a game board with orange lines forming the Jeopardy! logo as the camera pans around it. After that, the camera pans out as it reveals the completed Jeopardy! logo in gold. Soon after, the game board dissolves as an orange line quickly forms behind the Jeopardy! logo. In the last stretch, the Jeopardy! logo then zooms forward to reveal the 2002-2009 set.
  • The show is now currently produced by CBS Television Distribution, rather than KingWorld in the first 23 seasons.
  • The gameplay round title cards are redone to match the season's title card.
  • The "DOUBLE" and "FINAL" in Double and Final Jeopardy! are changed back to Impact; the "DOUBLE" now appears in gold, while the "FINAL" is reverted to a previous red coloration.
  • The contestant introductions and Final Jeopardy! winnings indicators are changed to cyan strips with black text in a font resembling Arial, appearing somewhat similar to the ones used in Season 20.
  • The contestant introductions background resembles a blue grid.
  • The split-screen background changes to the same blue starry background in the first full closing credit roll episode of the season, which is the season premiere, and the Sony Pictures Studios credit fades in on the center-right, then the split-screen still cuts back to the full-screen closing sequence.
  • By the December 31, 2007 episode, the text on the right becomes larger and the Sony Pictures Studios credit fades out after fading in before the closing sequence zooms back in to fill the screen.
  • Bob Sofia became coordinating producer.
