What’s This TV Show About?
Airing on the ABC television network, the Jeopardy! National College Championship TV series is a primetime version of the syndicated Jeopardy! College Champion tournament. It is hosted by Mayim Bialik. In the show, 36 college or university undergraduates answer trivia questions and compete in one of a dozen quarterfinal matches (two games per hour episode). The winners of each match move on to the four semifinal games. The three players with the highest point scores from those matches then compete in the two-game final in hopes of winning the big $250,000 prize.
Season One Ratings
The first season of Jeopardy! National College Championship averaged a 0.58 rating in the 18-49 demographic and 4.64 million viewers in the live+same day ratings (including DVR playback through 3:00 AM). While these numbers don’t include further delayed or streaming viewing, they are a very good indicator of how a show is performing, especially when compared to others on the same channel. There can be other economic factors involved in a show’s fate, but typically the higher-rated series are renewed and the lower-rated ones are cancelled. Find out how Jeopardy! National College Championship stacks up against other ABC TV shows.
Will ABC cancel or renew Jeopardy! National College Championship for season two? I can’t see the network airing this competition every year but I think it will return at some point. Other Jeopardy! specials will certainly continue to litter the season schedule. I’ll update this page with breaking developments. Subscribe for free alerts on Jeopardy!
