‘Jeopardy!’: Who Could Possibly Replace Alex Trebek?

https://variety.com/2020/tv/news/jeopar ... 234826467/
As an archivist I would not want the new host to have too common of a first name (Sorry, Mike Richards fans) as archiving in such instances as host/contestant sharing a first name requires spelling out the last name in all cases for comments and misses by either person. A common first name along with the new host having an unfriendly to type last name would be no fun.
perhaps you would prefer Rolf Benirschke?
If we're going with unlikely choices, I vote for Steve Wojciechowski.

In any event, I'm sure first name plus initial will work in most cases.

https://www.instagram.com/p/CHWqOb2FiZV ... 9afcu751ww - From October 5, 1984, just barely several weeks into the current Jeopardy! run, the Raleigh (NC) News and Observer had some harsh words for it:
“The new Jeopardy is a disgrace”
This was a syndicated review that ran in a bunch of papers, so it technically wasn't the News and Observer that had the words -- Mike Duffy was the TV critic for the Detroit Free Press. It's probably been posted in this thread before, in fact.

Ryan Reynolds discussed his final phone call with Alex Trebek a couple of months ago. Reynolds read some clues for the show that appeared in the final GOAT game that aired in January and in a regular play game that aired in February. It seems like Alex wanted Reynolds to return to do some more reading but Reynolds's schedule did not permit.

In the past I've posted pages from TV Guide that had something about J! Six full pages (plus a portion of the front cover) is a very nice tribute to Alex in the Nov. 23 - December 6 issue though too much to share online this time. If you see the mag at the checkout line (Is that still a thing? For both shoppers and the publication?) then it's worth a flip through. If the clerk is like the one in The Queen's Gambit then you touch it, you buy it... unless you filch it.

Ken Jennings: “Don’t Neglect the Thing That Makes You Weird”
It was only in his late twenties that America’s favorite brainiac began to seriously embrace his love of trivia. Now he holds the “Greatest of All Time” title on Jeopardy! Steve Levitt digs into how he trained for the show, what it means to have a “geographic memory,” and why we lie to our children.

Ken Jennings Scores a Grammy Nomination for Alex Trebek: The Answer Is Audiobook

In other news, Jennings announced today that he will "go for the EGOT" in 2021. In addition to this morning's Grammy nomination and his upcoming guest-host stint on Jeopardy!, Jennings will write the screenplay and play the title role in the Netflix movie Braniac in February. In March, he begins rehearsals for Maphead: The Musical, which will displace the long-running Wicked at Broadway's Gershwin Theatre.

Here's the competition:
BEST SPOKEN WORD ALBUM (INCLUDES POETRY, AUDIO BOOKS & STORYTELLING)

Acid for the Children: A Memoir, Flea
Alex Trebek - The Answer Is..., Ken Jennings
Blowout: Corrupted Democracy, Rogue State Russia, and the Richest, Most Destructive Industry on Earth, Rachel Maddow
Catch and Kill, Ronan Farrow
Charlotte's Web (E.B. White), Meryl Streep (and Full Cast)
If Meryl Streep weren't in the lineup I'd say Ken bags the Grammy easy on sympathy vote alone. Then it's just a hop, skip, and a jump to EGOT, baby.

Maybe they will show the 1991 College tournament to pick up the 20 clues missing from the final.

Is the current crop of Netflix shows really leaving Friday?

Every time I play one, it says "Leaving December 17" - specifically I'm on Josh Hill's run, the "last" one listed numerically, but the one on the top of the menu.

I wonder if recent events might have caused Netflix to try to extend the dates.

I remember that the previous collections were originally announced to leave on June 27, 2020, but they didn't leave until July 27, 2020, and then the current collections were added the next day, July 28.

Probably wishful thinking... my sense is they have a preference for the post-HD content

Maybe they will put together a series of episodes with full credit rolls.
