'Jeopardy,' 'Wheel of Fortune' nix live audience

As concerns about coronavirus continue to affect the entertainment industry, two popular syndicated game shows are making changes to their usual protocol.

“Jeopardy!” and “Wheel of Fortune” will begin taping shows without a studio audience, to limit the spread of coronavirus, USA TODAY has confirmed, and will continue to do so indefinitely.

CBS’ daytime staple “The Price is Right” also aired a message during one of last week’s episodes about its travel prizes.

“This episode was recorded prior to the outbreak of COVID-19,” a disclaimer read during the credits. “Travel prizes in regions affected by COVID-19 may be fulfilled with alternative arrangements. For more information on COVID-19, please visit the Centers for Disease Control’s website.”

USA TODAY has reached out to “The Price Is Right” for comment.

More than 116,000 cases of the new coronavirus have been confirmed worldwide across more than 100 countries and regions, and more than 4,000 people have died as of Tuesday morning, according to data from Johns Hopkins University.
