Season 24 (2007-2008)Edit

Season changes:

  • At the beginning of this season, CBS Television Distribution took over production of Jeopardy!, its sister show Wheel of Fortune, and other syndicated shows. The CBS Television Distribution logo first appeared on the September 27, 2007 episode. The logo consisted of a blue studio backdrop with spotlights and moving clouds, and the CBS eye with "CBS Television Distribution" written on it. For the logo's first appearance, the KingWorld "Star Shooter" music is heard; and then, a synthesized violin fanfare.
  • The opening credits have changed to a bluish-black starry night background, and a game board with orange lines forming the Jeopardy! logo. After that, 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.
  • This is the first full season to be produced by CBS Television Distribution.
  • This is the last season to have the 2001-2008 theme and the 1997-2008 "Think!" cue.
  • This is also the last season to have the 1984-2008 dollar figure loading pattern, and its accompanying sound effect.
  • The gameplay round title cards gained a new look 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 changed 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 became larger, and the Sony Pictures Studios credit fades out after fading in before the closing sequence zooms in to fill the screen.
  • Bob Sofia became coordinating producer.
