SALT LAKE CITY — “Jeopardy!” remains on break for another week as it runs through its annual teacher's tournament.

Current “Jeopardy!” champion James Holzhauer will look to continue his winning streak when the show returns on May 20.

The show will air at 5 p.m. MT.

But, according to Philly.com, “Jeopardy!” has seen a dip in viewership while it has been on hiatus.

Currently, nine teachers are battling in the teacher's tournament, looking to grab $100,000 in grand prize winnings and a spot in the Tournament of Champions for the show.

When “Jeopardy!” returns, Holzhauer will look to continue his 22-game winning streak, which is the second-longest all-time behind Ken Jennings.

Holzhauer has earned about $1.69 million since he started competing on the show. He makes about $76,601 per game, according to my report for the Deseret News.

Jennings is the only one who made more on the show with $2.5 million during his 74-game-winning run, according to the Deseret News.
