What is, Jeopardy announced its next four guest hosts?
February 2nd, 2021 under Anderson Cooper, Jeopardy. [ Comments: none ]


Back in November, we sadly lost Alex Trebek to cancer. Even though he is no longer with us, the game show must go on. Therefore, Jeopardy is using guest hosts like Ken Jennings. He was the first one to get the job. Now, we know who will be the next after Katie Couric, Aaron Rodgers, Bill Whitaker, and Mayim Bialik. Those lucky four are Dr. Mehmet Oz, Anderson Cooper, Savannah Guthrie, and Dr. Sanjay Gupta.

There is an added benefit for them doing the show. The winnings of each episode they host will be matched and given to a charity of the celebrity’s choice.

This an interesting group of hosts, but I am still petitioning for Neil deGrasse Tyson to be a fill-in. He is knowledgeable, likable, and a cool nerd. He’d be perfect for the job! Another fun guest host would be Wolf Blitzer. He was so awful when he played the game; I’d love to see him fail as a host too.

Jeopardy names their next group of guest hosts
January 13th, 2021 under Jeopardy. [ Comments: 2 ]


Back in November, Alex Trebek lost his battle with pancreatic cancer. Then last week, his final episodes of Jeopardy aired.

Since, as Queen says, the show must go on, it did with guest hosts. This week Ken Jennings is hosting the show. In the coming weeks, Katie Couric, Aaron Rodgers, Bill Whitaker, and Mayim Bialik will be asking the answers.

That is an interesting group of celebrities to take over the hosting duties. Then again, I won’t be happy until they ask Neil deGrasse Tyson to do it. He would be the perfect replacement for the job.

Alex Trebek’s final Jeopardy episodes air next week
December 30th, 2020 under Jeopardy. [ Comments: none ]


On November 8th, Alex Trebek lost his battle with pancreatic cancer. On January 8th, two months after his passing, his final episode of Jeopardy will air.

He taped those episodes back in October, and no one knew they would be his final ones. I think that is how he would have wanted it.

Having said that, the game show promises they will be special. These episodes were originally going to air Christmas week, but they decided to hold them until the new year because of preemptions. Because of the original plan, Monday’s episode will feature a powerful message from Trebek about the season of giving.

Then on Friday, his final episode, Jeopardy will pay tribute to him and his 36+ years hosting the game show that made him one the most loved people in North America.

Get the tissues ready because we are going to need them.

Jeopardy will resume production with guest hosts
November 23rd, 2020 under Jeopardy. [ Comments: none ]


Alex Trebek passed away on November 8th from pancreatic cancer. Many of us assumed that it would probably be the end of Jeopardy. It is not.

Today, they announced that the show will begin production again on November 30th with guest hosts until they find a permanent one. GOAT winner Ken Jennings will start it off.

“Alex believed in the importance of JEOPARDY! and always said that he wanted the show to go on after him,” said Jeopardy! Executive Producer Mike Richards. “We will honor Alex’s legacy by continuing to produce the game he loved with smart contestants and challenging clues. By bringing in familiar guest hosts for the foreseeable future, our goal is to create a sense of community and continuity for our viewers.”

Trebek’s last episode was supposed to air on Christmas Day, but they have changed the date because of preemptions. They will air his top 10 greatest episodes between December 21st and December 28th. His final episode will now air on January 4th. Then a week later, new episodes will debut with the guest hosts.

Who would you like to see guest host? I would love to see Neil DeGrasse Tyson give it a try. I want a lovable nerd in that job. Someone a lot like Trebek.

What is, Jeopardy pays tribute to Alex Trebek
November 9th, 2020 under Jeopardy. [ Comments: none ]


Yesterday, we sadly lost Alex Trebek to stage IV pancreatic cancer. Before tonight’s episode of Jeopardy started, Executive Producer Mike Richards paid tribute to the beloved host.

“He loved this show and everything it stood for,” Richards said. “He will forever be an inspiration for his constant desire to learn, his kindness, and for the love of his family.”

Trebek loved doing the game show so much that he filmed his last episode less than two weeks ago. There are 34 more unaired episodes, and they will air between now and Christmas Day.

Thank you, Alex. What is, we will never forget you.
