'Jeopardy!' to honor 5,000th episode with New York celebrity edition

UPI News Service, 08/08/2006 

"Jeopardy" officials have decided to travel to New York to film episodes of the popular celebrity version of the show to mark its 5,000th episode.

A news release from King World said the special episodes will be filmed Oct. 5, 7 and 8 at Radio City Music Hall as part of the celebration of the game show's 5,000th episode milestone. The episodes will begin to air Nov. 8.

The popular California-based trivia show has been airing on TVs across America since 1984, when host Alex Trebek first asked contestants to phrase their responses in a form of a question.

Possible celebrity contestants for the episodes have not been revealed yet, but the show will donate a minimum $1 million to their favorite charities, the release said.
