He is a very nice guy in my experience.  I have a handicapped brother who is obsessed with jeopardy.  When he was young they said he would never be able to talk and he taught himself to speak watching

Thanks for trying @Galileo @Capella / @Frostillicus / the other 56,338 FBGs I pissed off - You guys are right & I was wrong. Very sorry about that (though I am a bit surprised by how qui

love spending other people’s money on the internet 

ive heard Levar Burton's name a few times now as a potential host.  which is interesting.

Oddsmakers put Burton in the top 5 to replace Trebek

Burton’s name is just one being bandied about as a possible new host for Jeopardy!  Former mega-champion Ken Jennings is considered the odds-on favorite for the job. He recently joined the show as a consulting producer and it has been reported that he was Trebek’s choice as a replacement.

Betting sites are paying even money for Jennings, but Burton is considered third most likely, paying 9-1 odds. Burton’s odds rank him third, behind Good Morning America co-host George Stephanopoulos, but ahead of scientist and Cosmos host Neil deGrasse Tyson and Wheel of Fortune host Pat Sajak.

Ken Jennings to be the first "guest host" until a permanent one is hired: https://deadline.com/2020/11/joepardy-ken-jennings-guest-host-schedule-alex-trebek-1234620780/

Quote

Producer Sony Pictures Television said Monday that a permanent host has not been named; rather, a series of interim guest hosts “from within the Jeopardy! family” will take the podium, beginning with Jennings when shooting resumes November 30. Other hosts have not yet been announced.

Meanwhile, Jeopardy! will air 10 of Trebek’s best episodes during the weeks of December 21 and December 28, with the last week of episodes that Trebek shot before his death (they were filmed in October) now set to air beginning January 4. They had been planned to air during the week of December but were shifted to avoid holiday-season pre-emptions.

The first week of guest-hosted shows featuring Jennings will air the week of January 11.

Not saying I'm a fan of Jennings. But everyone has a past event or events they are not proud of. Technology keeps everything from the past available for the present.

Jennings remark was in poor taste but is it how he should forever be defined? Its one fragment of his being what are the other parts?

The current champ, Brayden, has looked pretty strong in both of his wins. He could put together a pretty good run. It would be nice to see one last great run in the final Trebek shows.

The funny thing is that he looks really unsure about his answers, which are almost always correct. He definitely has a tentative manner for someone who is playing so well.

I’m pretty sure he’s making educated guesses on the ones he seems unsure about.

He's gotten lucky the last two games, missing relatively easy Finals but surviving.

How many trebek shows do they have left?   Hope they do something cool for the last one.  Make it an hour and have past guest do something special.

I think it's one more week. But, they're going to hold them until after the holidays and show two weeks of "Alex's favorite games" until then.

Did I miss something or was that anti-climatic

But the montage at the end. :cry:

Montage was great. Not sure what climax you were looking for. It was a regular old episode, I cant think of a more fitting way for Alex's tenure to come to a close.

He wanted to see Alex drag himself from a sick bed, out to the set, host the show, and after declaring the winner, collapse to the ground as doctors rush out to attend to him for a few minutes before tearfully announcing that he was gone.

Ken Jennings needs to slooooow down.

Was this his first show? Have not watched in months and the wife turned it on tonight and I saw his opening tribute to Alex. I thought he was tight but I have to imagine the nerves were through the roof. I imagine he will only get better.

I didn’t think he went fast. Seemed fine to me.

That would have been something.

I know that when he taped it, he didn't realize it was the last one he'd do...  nor do I think he'd have wanted to declare on camera that this was the "end".   Wouldn't have been good for the studio audience.

But what killed me was when he said:  "see you next week"...   wahhhhhh
