The Roku channel just announced they have dropped more episodes of Jeopardy into the J! Channel.

Of note, select episodes of Season 36, 2019's ToC and James Holzhauer's run were specifically mentioned.

Pluto and Roku Channel both have added both seasons of the half hour syndicated Are You Smarter than a 5th Grader on demand

The Pluto On Demand section for Wheel of Fortune has added more episodes, most of which are holiday/winter-themed. The episode numbers for the classic episodes (1984 through 2000) in the batch are 271, 273-275, 463, 661, 662, 1251-1255, 1446-1450, 1641-1645, 2416-2420, and 3371-3375.

For what it's worth, these were in the on demand feed in November/December, usually in early mornings. 

Honestly kind of surprised to see them wait til now to add them to On Demand.

Any reason why we haven't seen any Season 5 all-cash episodes (and any Season 6 episodes) on the On Demand section? I'm thinking Sony can't clear "I'm a Wheel Watcher" (when Pat would introduce Vanna) for streaming yet...

Speaking of, they're in the process of dumping in at least a couple hundred new episodes. So far there are 21 shopping era adds (including the entire 4th nighttime taping), and 143 total shows added spanning 1983 to 2020 (including Fred Rogers' 1998 appearance, Betty White's 2008 guest spot, and the 5000th show from the following spring). In general the uploads are still hewing fairly close to previous themes: Shopping episodes, entire weeks from road trips or special contestant weeks, randomly curated themed weeks from the 2000s/2010s, and one-off "really interesting shows".

Includes several more shopping and early-era cash shows from seasons GSN previously skipped (3, 4, 8, 9) because I know those tend to be the two eras folks like the most. Quite a few other 90s-2010s shows seeing light for the first time since semi-contemporary reruns too.

Still nothing from the cash end of season 5, or from season 6 at all. These episodes are clearly going through an edit bay anyway, if Vanna's entry song is the issue, feels like it wouldn't take much effort to overdub Vanna's entrance with the 80s theme and an applause track.
