It would probably draw the biggest Jeopardy ratings ever recorded.
That was suggested in an interview Jennings did, and although I don't think he ruled it out, he did say he's nowhere near as sharp and quick as he was back then (can it really have been 15 years ago?!?), and that he doubted he could beat Holzhauer now.

It was certainly that way for me after I won my one measly game in 1991 (age 35). It was as though my brain realized it had achieved its peak performance, and could start shutting down. Twenty-eight years later I can barely remember my own name!
