Why is 'Jeopardy! Masters' not on tonight, May 17, 2023?

Ahead of the series premiere, ABC made it very clear to viewers how the Jeopardy! Masters episode release schedule would work. The show will air three one-hour episodes a week, from Monday to Wednesday, all leading up to the nail-biting Jeopardy! Masters season finale on May 24, 2023.

So, with today being Thursday, May 17, that means Jeopardy! Masters is taking the next few nights off and will resume on Monday, May 22, at 8 p.m. EST. But don't fret; there's still plenty for you to watch!

For starters, you can tune in for the regularly scheduled episode of Jeopardy!, which will see reigning champ Ben Chan face off against two new contestants. His six-day total is $182,000, but can he extend his lead? Only time will tell, but you can find out when the episode airs at 7 p.m. EST.

Following the new episode of Jeopardy! is "America's Game" — Wheel of Fortune. There's nothing better than solving puzzles and yelling at the contestants who struggle to solve a relatively easy puzzle.

If that's not enough to lessen your Jeopardy! Masters withdrawals, there's always time to watch the Season 6 finale of Station 19, as well as the two-hour Season 19 finale of Grey's Anatomy. Both are sure to leave fans on the edge of their seats, but the latter episode marks the return of Meredith Grey following Ellen Pompeo's exit earlier this season.

Tune in to the semifinals of Jeopardy! Masters on May 22, 2023, at 8 p.m. EST on ABC.
