LOS ANGELES � January 2, 2006 � Powerhouse game shows Wheel of Fortune and Jeopardy! were renewed through the 2011-2012 season, it was announced today by Roger King, Chief Executive Officer of CBS Television Distribution.

�These new sales reflect what the ratings prove every week � Wheel of Fortune and Jeopardy! are two of the most valuable properties in syndication,� King said. �It�s a real tribute to our production partner, Sony, and executive producer, Harry Friedman, that after more than 20 years, these are still two of the highest-rated shows in syndication, and station demand for them remains high. We can�t think of a better way to kick off the New Year than with this announcement of many more years of Wheel of Fortune and Jeopardy! to come.�

Emmy award-winning Jeopardy!, now in its 23rd season, has ranked among the top 3 syndicated shows for 22 years and is watched by more than 37 million viewers a week.

�The Wheel of Fortune and Jeopardy! production teams are simply the best,� Friedman said. �With these unprecedented renewals, we will continue to infuse our classic games with energy and originality through 2012 and beyond.�

�Wheel of Fortune and Jeopardy! continue to lead syndication into the future,� said Steve Mosko, president of Sony Pictures Television. �Thanks to a superb partnership between Sony, King World and the wonderfully talented Harry Friedman, stations can look forward to several more years of America's favorite game shows, and with advances like our recent move to High Definition, viewers will enjoy the best possible viewing experience.�

Both shows are renewed through 2012 in about one-third of the country, with stations from ABC, CBS, Post-Newsweek, Hearst-Argyle and Sinclair�s station groups signing on for two more years.
