LAS VEGAS, NV (January 8, 2009)-In celebration of its 25th anniversary season, Jeopardy!, America's Favorite Quiz Show�, kicks off the New Year by taping 11 special episodes this week in Las Vegas from the floor of the world's largest consumer electronics trade show, CES.

In collaboration with Sony Electronics, Jeopardy! is building a set which will be part of the Sony booth, allowing visitors to check out Sony's newest products as well as one of its signature television series. The customized set includes a game board featuring 36 of Sony's latest HD-LCD monitors, as well as OLED technology and other Sony design innovations.

"Jeopardy! was the first quiz show to produce episodes in HD, and we continue to embrace the newest broadcast and interactive technologies. We look forward to sharing this dazzling Sony Electronics-inspired set with the CES attendees, as well as with our millions of Jeopardy! fans", said executive producer Harry Friedman.

CES will play host to two Jeopardy! audience favorites: Celebrity Jeopardy! and the Tournament of Champions. Celebrity Jeopardy! will feature Tom Bergeron ("Dancing with the Stars"), Elizabeth Perkins ("Weeds") and Aisha Tyler (Bedtime Stories) as contestants. Each celebrity player is guaranteed a minimum of $25,000 to be donated to their special cause, while the show's winner is guaranteed a grand prize of $50,000.
