What is the Future of Jeopardy?


Nobody can replace Alex Trebek as the host of Jeopardy, but someone will eventually succeed him as the host of Jeopardy.  I am certain that by now the producers of the show have privately had discussions.  Will the next host be "grandfatherly" as Alex was, a younger man, or a woman.  There is an online petition to appoint Levar Burton as the host.  Some people think Ken Jennings should be the new host. I proposed Brooke Burns as she has experience as the host of two quiz shows that have featured Ken Jennings and James Holzhauer.

Jeopardy shows with Alex as host were pre-recorded until October 29 and will air until Christmas Day.  There are options for the producers:

  • Air reruns until a permanent host is appointed
  • Make someone an interim host until a permanent successor is found
  • Give applicants trial runs as host as part of their interview
  • Appoint a permanent host immediately
Some viewers equated Alex with Jeopardy and may not watch the show again.  We will have to wait and see what will happen.
