[ # ] Jeopardy will resume production with guest hosts
November 23rd, 2020 under Jeopardy

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.
