Jeopardy!: where and when

Since 2017, I've kept track of all the stations across the United States where Jeopardy! airs; Canadian stations airing the show are also now included. (Additionally, many cable providers in Canada carry affiliates of United States networks air Jeopardy! as well.) The show has its own "where to watch" page.

All but two U.S. TV markets have a local affiliate showing Jeopardy!; both of those two are among the smallest and don't have a full slate of Big Four network affiliates. Viewers in Zanesville, OH likely catch the show on WBNS (CBS Columbus), and I think it's available in Glendive, MT to cable subscribers on KUMV (NBC Williston, ND).

The four markets in Arizona and Hawaii are denoted with a caret (^), indicating they do not observe Daylight Saving Time. This sheet shows the offsets to Eastern time and aggregated data tables under Daylight Time; I have a separate version for Standard Time, which will appear in this space once DST resumes in March.

At the bottom, some breakdown tables. Perhaps someone can take this data and run an update on this blog post from 2014 graphically rendering this data.

For anyone interested: the list of ZIP Codes I used to accomplish this.

The main table is sortable; clicking on a column's header cell will sort in ascending order; clicking again reverses the order.

Canadian stations

The five stations listed below are are all members of a "collective" called indieNET, which I imagine negotiates a single syndication agreement for all of them. (indieNET has a sixth member, CHCH, but it has the same regional coverage as CITS.)
