Are you missing new episodes of Jeopardy! or Wheel of Fortune? It looks like new shows are in the pipeline,and they’re being recorded in a different way.
The sets of both shows have been redesigned to make sure social distancing is observed among the hosts and the contestants. On Wheel of Fortune, the wheel has been redesigned to make sure there’s plenty of room between the contestants and Pat Sajak. Meanwhile, on the Jeopardy! set, the players will be separated even farther than in the past, and will be more distanced from Alex. Only essential staff and crew members will be allowed on the sets of both shows.
Jeopardy! Shoots five episodes a week, two days a week, and will start new shows this week. Wheel is hoping to start shooting next week.
Jack and Carolyn talked about this on The Morning Breeze. Listen here:
