'Jeopardy!': James Holzhauer, Ken Jennings to Return in Primetime

The Greatest of All Time will bring Ken Jennings, Brad Rutter, and Jamez Holzhauer together to face off in a true battle of Jeopardy champions. The Greatest of All Time will feature last season's phenom James Holzhauer going up against Ken Jennings and Brad Rutter for a $1 million prize.

In this tournament, the first player to win three matches will take home $1 million and be declared the show's all-time greatest player, per The Hollywood Reporter.

Rutter is the top all-time money victor with $4.7 million, followed by Jennings with $3.4 million and Holzhauer with $2.7 million. He won the show's 2019 "Tournament of Champions" earlier this month. The two non-winners will each receive $250,000.

But after committing a false start on a third & one, Winston had a pass intended for wide receiver Mike Evans fall incomplete. In the four games since the Bucs' trip to Louisiana, he has 36 catches for 556 yards and three touchdowns.

The three top winners in "Jeopardy!" history are set to compete against each other during a prime time event on ABC in January. "These three players have won close to $10 million in 'Jeopardy!' prize money, and over 100 games among them, so it was logical". Jennings won a record 74 games straight, Rutter hauled in the most money, and Holzhauer holds the title for top single-game winnings.

"Based on their previous performances, these three are already the 'greatest, ' but you can't help wondering: who is the best of the best?" He also holds the record of most money won in USA game show history with $4,888,436. Rutter has never lost to a human contestant, but both Jennings and Rutter lost to an IBM computer platform designed specifically for the game show in 2011. "It's been a long time in the making - we wanted to create a unique experience sure to wow not just our fans, but all audiences", said Mike Hopkins, Chairman, Sony Pictures Television.

7 at 8/7c, the Jeopardy! tournament will air for at least three consecutive weeknights through Thursday, Jan. 9.
