ABC's primetime "Jeopardy! Greatest of All Time" tournament became a runaway success for the broadcast network last week, and it got there by capitalizing on a number of factors that led to a renewed fascination with the 56-year-old game show.

Essentially, "Jeopardy!" only works in threes, and this is the first time there have been three players of James Holzhauer, Ken Jennings and Brad Rutter's caliber around to compete head-to-head for such a high title as the long-running syndicated game show's "Greatest of All Time" a.k.a. GOAT.

"We're always trying to push the envelope and do something a little different, something a little more advanced, either from a technical point of view or from a content point of view," longtime "Jeopardy!" host Alex Trebek told reporters during ABC's presentation at the Television Critics Association winter press tour in Pasadena, Calif. last Wednesday — the day after "GOAT" premiered.

To air the "Greatest of All Time" tournament during primetime was a rare move for ABC, considering the last time the Sony Pictures Television-produced "Jeopardy!" broke out of syndication was in 1990 for "Super Jeopardy!," which was Trebek's first time hosting one of the game show's tournaments and involved 36 contestants competing at once for a $250,000 grand prize.

Ratings for regular-season play, which continues airing in syndication throughout the "GOAT" tournament, began to rise this summer as Holzhauer worked his way through a 32-game winning streak from April to June. The Las Vegas native set the record for highest single-game winnings with $131,127, and he came within a hair's breadth of beating Jennings' regular-season play winnings record of $2,520,700 — though he lost to Emma Boettcher in an agonizing last game.
