WASHINGTON — The Newseum, the world’s most interactive museum, makes its debut as a game-show topic on the Oct. 1, 2008, broadcast of "Jeopardy!"

Producers of the Emmy Award-winning game show, which celebrates its 25th season this year, visited the Newseum last summer to videotape clues for a category in which the Newseum is the subject.

"It’s a great place to visit. I've been there," said host Alex Trebek. 

"Jeopardy!" was inducted into the "Guinness Book of World Records" for the most awards won by a TV game show. With nearly 39 million viewers a week, the series is the No. 1-rated quiz show in syndication and has held that title for more than 1,000 weeks.

"Jeopardy!" is produced by Sony Pictures Television, a Sony Pictures Entertainment Company. It is distributed domestically by CBS Television Distribution and internationally by CBS Paramount International Television, both units of CBS Corp.
