GSN is hosting a Jeopardy marathon Saturday from 9 AM to 3 PM ET. Highlights include the first two episodes and multiple Ken shows. Dates will be listed below and should be airing in chronological order:

#1, 9/10/1984 - First episode
#2, 9/11/1984 - Second episode and the first 3-way tie
#1932, 1/19/1993 - A $1 win
#3944, 10/25/2001 - 2001 Tournament of Champions Quarterfinals with Brad Rutter.
#4558, 6/2/2004 - Ken Jennings' first episode

Seems like a decent back of shows, even if it skews towards the 2000s.

How many were used on the flashback episodes seen in syndication months ago?

Just the first two shows.

First two shows were in the summer flashback.  Ken's first show was seen in the May reruns before they reran the GOAT tournament. The 2007 episode was on Hulu and Netflix for a while in one of their collections (part of the "Best of Alex").  It's also, as far as I know, the only episode of the twelve to never air on GSN before.

After that, have to go back a while.  Ken's other episodes haven't been seen since GSN ran them in 2008, the '06 show turned up a couple of times in the year or two after that, and that '93 show hasn't been seen since the network was rerunning that season during the so called "dark period" (no it wasn't) almost 25 years ago.

If anyone's recording this (particularly the '93 episode and Ken's non-first episodes) and is able to put it into a dropbox or Google Drive link, I'd be eternally grateful.  (and could probably toss the excel spreadsheet with what I've digitized your way to see if there's anything that piques your interest)

If I can figure out a way to do that, I can make it work.

The source code on GSN's schedule has been updated; the final episode is one of the Watson games. There's not enough information to suss out which specific episode it is, but seeing as how the first game was spread across two days, I'd think the second game is the most likely choice.

EDIT: Nope. They aired the first day, which had the first half of game 1.
