Season 27 (2010-2011)Edit

Season changes:

  • The opening credits have changed to multicolored glass panels stacking on top of one another which forms the Jeopardy! logo with the camera panning out from the right. As the Jeopardy! logo is completed, blue glass panels above and below the Jeopardy! logo move in from the right and left simultaneously. Then the show's logo zooms forward, in which the "A" reveals the 2009-2013 set.
  • This is the last season where Alex Trebek stands in front of the game board, when the Final Jeopardy! category is revealed.
  • The Teachers Tournament is held for the first time in May.
  • During the quarter-finals week of the opening introduction of the Teachers Tournament, Johnny Gilbert introduces the teacher contestants by announcing a brief description followed by their location and name. It looks just like the Kids Week introduction. This would remain in use until Season 29.
  • The color scheme in photograph clues and Daily Doubles changed to light blue with tinted horizontal streaked lines.
