More information about Final Jeopardy:
QVC (the letters standing for Quality, Value, Convenience), was founded in 1986 by Joseph Segel (also the founder of mail-order collectibles company Franklin Mint). It was a pioneer in home shopping television, where a host describes a product being sold, and home viewers telephone to purchase the product. It originally only broadcast live from 7:30 PM to midnight ET on weekdays (and all-day Saturdays and Sundays), and on its first broadcast on November 24, 1986, sales were $7,400. In 2015, its net revenues were $8.7 billion.
