Patrick, host of The Dan Patrick Show, said that Sports Jeopardy! has a "great starting lineup" and added that the show is "the only game show that rewards you for the hours you spend on your couch watching sports and being anti-social, so reward yourself, tune in, and play along." 

Sports Jeopardy! will include interactive components, including a 99-cent mobile app that will allow viewers to follow along with the show. Crackle says more than 30,000 people registered online to audition for the show over the summer.

Jeopardy!, Sports Jeopardy!'s father show, first appeared on the air in 1964. Current host Alex Trebek began hosting the program in 1984.
