Jeopardy! fans slam ‘spoiler-filled commercials’ for taking the ‘fun’ out of watching the game show
JEOPARDY! fans slammed "spoiler-filled commercials" for running the "fun" out of watching the popular game show.
While ABC is currently airing re-runs, fans claimed in an online thread that they spotted ads that supposedly give away the champions from Final Jeopardy! rounds.5Mayim Bialik will continue to co-host Jeopardy! in Season 39Credit: ABC 5Ken Jennings has switched hosting duties with MayimCredit: ABC
An angry viewer claimed to have watched an ad that revealed monumental moments from Season 38, such as contestant Amy Schneider winning 40 games in a row and contestant Matt Amodio winning 38 straight.
Another viewer claimed: "Our station has been running that ad the whole time."
Followers were unsure if the "spoiler commercials" were "Jeopardy's doing or my local network affiliate."
A follower explained: "Jeopardy! has a six week offseason every year around August and September.
"Those are the only repeats shown on weekdays throughout the season.More Jeopardy!KEN YOU BELIEVE IT? Jeopardy! fan leaks 'remarkable' moment with Ken during show taping'DOING OUR BEST' Jeopardy! execs break silence on player's 'painful loss' after fan uproar
"This is the second of those six weeks. Plenty more repeats to come."
The follower concluded: "That's why you're seeing the promos right now - these aren't new shows."
Fans also claimed they did not know the quiz show was in re-runs due to the hosts switching back and forth between Ken Jennings, 48, and Mayim Bialik, 46.
The network is currently airing re-runs because the show is filming its next season.Most read in Entertainment‘SO COLD’ Anne Heche’s friends furious over Ellen's ‘horrible’ reaction to ex’s fatal crashACTRESS GONE Donnie Brasco star Anne Heche passes away after fiery car crashRIPA-ED FROM THE HEADLINES Kelly reveals major career move as she steps away from LiveGONE TOO FAR?

The new episodes for Season 39 will start airing on September 12th.
When the program returns, viewers will notice the show has finally opened back up to live television audiences.
The show will also have two new permanent guest hosts and many spin-offs to watch.
The executive producers at Jeopardy! decided that Ken and Mayim will continue to co-host the show together.
The duo has been named as the permanent co-hosts for the upcoming season 39, but they will not be switching every other week.
Ken will host the TV show, which is expected to start taping in August, from September to January.
Mayim will then take over the reins in January and host until the end of the season.
The Big Bang Theory actress will balance her hosting duties while filming her Fox comedy, Call Me Kat.
Mayim will also host Celebrity Jeopardy! and the special tournaments, while Ken will host the Second Chance Tournament and the Tournament of Champions.COMPETING AGAIN

"But I wouldn't close the door completely from Ken playing in the future, though he seems to have closed some doors himself."
He added: "If Ken came to me desperately and said 'this is it, I still want to play Jeopardy!, I can't say I'd close the door on Ken playing any form of Jeopardy! at any point in the future."5Fans claimed ads have ruined the Final Jeopardy! roundsCredit: ABC 5Moments from Season 38 were given away in the adsCredit: ABC 5Fans claimed they have been watching spoiler commercials during rerunsCredit: ABC
