Season 33 (2016-2017)Edit

Season changes:

  • The opening credits have changed to a water-like museum, where many photographs are shown in glass cubes before finally finding its place in the Jeopardy! logo at the end. Finally, the Jeopardy! logo then zooms forward, in which the "A" reveals the 2013-present set.
  • There is a new sound effect for the dollar figures popping in on the game board. It is also used for Saturday reruns of Season 32.
  • The gray border around the game board is now beveled.
  • The Teen Tournament finals will have $100,000 for 1st place, $50,000 for 2nd place and $25,000 for 3rd place. Eliminated semi-finalists will get $10,000 and eliminated quarter-finalists will get $5,000. It's the same cash payout format since the 2004 College Championship.
