Alex Trebeck’s latest episode of “Jeopardy!”, Which airs tonight, will end with a touching tribute to the legendary host of the show, who died on November 8.
The minute-and-a-half package includes videos from his earliest days on the Danger stage 37 years ago in the modern era without a mustache, showing Trebeck in his most charming and playful way – dressed as Kiss’ Gene Simmons and the Statue of Liberty and talking kindly to the participants.
The homage ends with a dedication to Trebeck, “Forever in our hearts, always our inspiration.”

Trebeck’s final episodes this week began when he called on viewers to “build a better, gentler society.” And like Diversity Television critic Daniel D’Adario said that “Trebeck’s public mourning is not just about the lack of familiar presence or veneration of a person suffering from dignity and stoicism in the eyes of the public. In a media landscape that has recently rewarded the search for attention Trebeck’s acting as a reflector of fame was rare and special and will be missed. “
Monday’s episode will begin with a series of intermediate guest hosts, beginning with a familiar face and “Danger! Danger!” The greatest of all time ”tournament champion Ken Jennings. Recently, the press for ABC “The Chase”, in which Jennings participates, told interesting facts Diversity that he’s “with the audience because he doesn’t want to see me or any other guest host there, because in a perfect world it would be Alex every night, that’s who I want to see.”
“But it’s a show with a huge fan that relies on it every night as a ritual, it’s a show that Alex wanted to outlive,” Jennings said. “So I’m not excited about it, but I’m happy to play my part for my country and my show and fill in as long as they need someone in the chair, but it’s a difficult transition.”
