Jeopardy Features Host Alex Trebeck For the Last Time
December 31, 2020
The popular television game show "Jeopardy!" will air the final episodes with Alex Trebek as host on CBS Monday, January 4 through Friday, January 8.
Trebek died of cancer earlier this year.
His final episodes were recorded in late October; at the time, no one knew they would be his last.
The episode to air Monday will have Trebek deliver a message about the season of giving, with the final recorded episode Friday will have a tribute to the life and the memory of the longtime host.
New episodes are expected to continue airing January 11 with former contestant and multi-time show champion Ken Jennings as guest host.
The stage has been upgraded and now allows for more space between the three contestant podiums; the podiums will also be at a safe distance from Alex at his lectern. Additionally, production has protocols in place in accordance with current government guidelines to protect contestants, staff, crew, and talent from the spread of COVID-19.
