    I tune in to Jeopardy to see the contest, not the moderator. I think that's exactly what Alex wanted. I hope they find a replacement for Trebek that is as good at serving the show as he was.

    I wouldn't be able to put up with his voice reading all the clues.

    Somehow, I think they're going to do a "host auditions" video out take and that would happen. There they'd show snippets from auditions, and I guess Watson would be one of them. They'd probably have some fun with it.

    Rather than search for the topic about the man, I'll just post here.

    Last night's 10:00 SNL was the one where Martin Short was Jerry Lewis, along with Sean Connery and Burt Reynolds. It didn't appear to be the one shown in the ABC special because it was obvious they just inserted a scene with the real Alex and Will Ferrell along with Sean (and Martin didn't thank Alex at the end). This was followed by what looked like clues from the show, with the actual font on a blue background. Something like "The greatest game show host of all time" and then "Who is Alex Trebek?" and then the screen went black. I wish it had been the actual episode where Alex appeared, but it was really funny because all those celebrities were such idiots. Even Burt Reynolds couldn't figure out the name of his movie when "cannonball" and "run" were in the clue.

    Ken Jennings to serve as interim host. Production will resume next week.

    Seemed like the obvious thing to do.

    I saw it as “first guest host.” That implies there will be more.

    Yes, a series of interim guest hosts. I bet they do this for the rest of the season and name a permanent host to start next fall.

    Last week the four-time champion did not go on to win five. While a four-time champion can appear on the Tournament of Champions, knowing there could have been a second five-time champion reminded me we now know Alex will not be around for that.

    They've changed the schedule...

    Alex Trebek’s Final ’Jeopardy!’ Episodes Will Air In January

    First, the show will air ten of Trebek’s best episodes during the weeks of Dec. 21 and Dec. 28, referring to “anticipated preemptions around Christmas and New Year’s.” From there, however, Trebek’s last week of episodes will hit the air during the week of Jan. 4, 2021, before the guest-hosted shows begin on Jan. 11.

    Makes sense. Hard to end around the holidays with syndication and all. Also kind of a bummer to end on Christmas Eve as it was going to work out.

    Christmas Day, actually (Friday, December 25). Because of that scheduling, it was probably going to be preempted on a fair number of stations (ABC affiliates in particular, since ABC is probably going to be showing NBA basketball that day).

    I’m not convinced there will be NBA yet.

    Of all things, my DVR didn't get J! at 7:30 tonight because my affiliate played it and Wheel in the wrong order. :rolleyes:

    I really expected an amendment after the ad break. Did the clue have a adverb vs verb (?) clarifier?
