** After a barrage of ties at the start of Season 31, the long-standing rule that ties for first place during regular play result in the tied players becoming co-champions was eliminated in November 2014. As is the case during tournaments, ties for first during regular play are now broken by a tiebreaker clue, though this scenario has yet to occur.

** Increasingly so in the 2000s, this is baked right into the clues themselves; where the game originally had straight-forward "answers" (ex. "He was the 40th president"), a bulk of the clues now give contextual hints in order to give players a hand (ex. "He was the 40th president, much to Doc Brown's disbelief 30 years earlier").

** On February 1, 2018, all three contestants failed to ring in for an entire American football-themed category (to tie in with that weekend's Super Bowl), prompting increasingly snarky and hilarious comments from Alex, causing the studio audience to have huge fits of laughter, and giving the media a field day with the story, reinforcing the Jeopardy! stereotype of egghead contestants who know zilch about sports.
