Jeopardy! is produced by a division of Sony. Presumably they can find enough money in the sofa cushions to cover his winnings. Plus this sort of thing is huge publicity, especially among the general public. Lots of people like my mother who aren't regular viewers are tuning in and long term, the show may acquire new viewers. I think Ken Jennings is still known among the general public.
