I know that most people seem to want Anderson Cooper to be Alex's replacement for some reason, but I was thinking if it was someone like Danica McKellar or Mayim Bialik, there could be harder science questions since they could pronounce the terms properly without stumbling over them like many hosts would.
I identify as a Jeopardy! fan, and use who/what pronouns.

"Principia" from Monday's show. (I guess people understood what it was with his pronunciation, but I was surprised that he mispronounced it.)

I am pretty sure that, although it sounded like he said 'meatloaf', he probably meant 'Meat Loaf'.

If I had 50 cents for every math question I got right, I'd have $6.30 by now.

Probably.

Wolf Blitzer, however, would lose to meatloaf.

From Marc Berman's "Programming Insider:

Crackle to Launch on Xfinity on Demand This Wednesday
Crackle, Sony’s ad-supported streaming network, will launch a select menu of original programming on Xfinity on Demand on Wednesday, April 20. Crackle’s first content deal with a cable distribution partner will make its slate of entertaining originals available to all Xfinity TV subscribers across platforms on Xfinity on Demand. Crackle’s premium, original long-form content will be distributed for the first time as part of Comcast’s cable service, via Xfinity on Demand in the home. It will also be available for TV Everywhere viewing with an Internet connection via the Xfinity TV app and website.

Programming will include Jerry Seinfeld’s “Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee;” animated series “SuperMansion” starring and executive produced by Bryan Cranston; scripted drama “The Art of More;” and “Sports Jeopardy!” with Dan Patrick. Additional Crackle originals and licensed programming will be rolled out in the months ahead.

Will we still be able to see stuff on Crackle if we don't have that cable provider?

http://www.nytimes.com/2016/05/01/reale ... .html?_r=1

Article is about people in New York becoming landlords to make ends meet, which may be easier to do when your dad is the host of Jeopardy.
When Matthew Trebek, 25, decided to open Oso, a restaurant serving Mexican street food to debut soon in Harlem, he immediately began searching for a home in the neighborhood. Initially he and his agents, Jason Hernandez, a salesman at Douglas Elliman Real Estate, and Lesley Steiner, an associate broker there, looked for one-bedroom apartments. But their explorations took them to townhouses where Mr. Trebek could have more room, as well as steady rental income. He wound up with a five-story townhouse with an owner’s triplex for $1,915,000 and began a new adventure as a landlord.

His father, Alex Trebek, the host of “Jeopardy!,” lent a helping hand making updates and repairs.

“Oh, yeah, my dad is handy,” Matthew Trebek said. “He’s 75 now, but he is one of the hardest-working people. It’s, ‘Get out of bed, we’re going to Home Depot!’ He traveled here from L.A. with power tools.”

Monday's episode of "Jeopardy!" -- the first of the show's "Power Players Week" -- featured a category that should be no sweat for baseball fans.

I love Alex Trebek's cameo in the beginning of Short Cuts. Anyone remember that?
