Season 31 (2014-2015)Edit

Season changes:
  • The opening credits have changed to a tower with all the dollar figures from the Jeopardy! and Double Jeopardy! segments fading into various photographs on a blue to pink sky background, with the Jeopardy! logo in gold on top of the tower. Finally, the Jeopardy! logo then zooms forward, in which the "A" reveals the 2013-present set.
  • Aimee Seligstein, who played against Julia Collins last season, joined the Jeopardy! staff as a contestant coordinator sometime before the 2014 Tournament of Champions.
    • Around this time, long-time contestant coordinator Robert James took a leave of absence from the show.
  • The closed captioning sponsors includes not one, but two promos; before the Double Jeopardy! round.
  • On November 24, 2014, after the 2014 Tournament of Champions, in the case of a two or three way tie after Final Jeopardy!, tiebreakers are now applied into regular play, where ties were no longer allowed in regular play. This occurred after ties resulted in co-champions four times in the first two months.
  • This is both the last season with ties allowed and the first season with tiebreaker rule in place.
  • On episodes with a full closing credit roll, the split-screen backdrop is a blue and orange gradient space backdrop.
  • Starting this season, the Sony logo appears on a black background, then a light flashes to reveal an edited version of the Sony Pictures Television logo. This also occurs with sister show Wheel of Fortune.
