Well, it's almost certain now that if he makes it to 30 years of hosting Jeopardy, he'll be retiring.

And, he's earned his retirement.
 
2012-06-24 04:14:20 PM  
What is "moving up your retirement date"?
 
2012-06-24 04:20:00 PM  
So who will be the next host? I vote for zombie Ray Combs

The best choice would probably be Ken Jennings.

Of course, Sony will probably follow the current trends and find a middle-aged stand-up comedian.

Lewis Black would be an interesting choice. He could mock the people when they give a stupid answer. They could invite Wolf Blitzer back on just so he could be shredded by Black

Lewis Black would be a great choice.

Unfortunately, he's old, too.

Oh, and if The Price is Right is any indication of how the hardcore, rabid fans will take a host change, expect a small, but vocal bunch of insane nutjobs to picket the Jeopardy studios and elevate Alex Trebek to sainthood after the first five minutes of Jeopardy he doesn't host.

/Crazy Price is Right fans are scary, and the online forum they hang out at has a very Freeper-like quality about it where you get banned for not following their "Bob Barker is God and everything that happened after he retired is worse than watching your mother starring in a German scat video" party line.

I worked in retirement/assisted living places the last 15 years, and those old ladies were devastated when Bob left. Near weeping of rheumy eyes, gnashing of (false) teeth, tearing out of (dyed) hair...it was quite the maelstrom for them-but then again, they never referred to the show as The Price is Right, it was time for "Bob Barker". They had to be finished with breakfast by 9 so they could gather to watch, and woe was anyone who came into the facilities for an activity for them when Bob was on.

When Drew Carey was finally announced as the new host, I let the ladies know, and I'll always remember one woman's reaction: "Why, he isn't handsome!!!".

Suggested replacements:

John Ratzenberger: but only if he does it in character as Cliff Clavin.

Patrick Warbuton: but he has to do his normal deadpan delivery.

Jeff Probst: he was okay as host of Rock and Roll Jeopardy

Also, every answer on the board must find some way to shoehorn in the phrase "Eh, it's a little known fact that..." regardless of how well known the fact actually is.

Would George Wendt be eating beans? Will there be a survey?

There might even be a movie!

Beans, George Wendt, and surveys could be involved somehow.

Damn. I'm sure he's earned a lot of money and it's not like it's hard work but I can't imagine doing that for three decades.

Ever noticed that when you're watching Jeopardy in private, you totally rock it? And then when you watch it in public (happy hour, likely) you can't even get the $100 questions right?

Trebek: "...this color commonly associated with infant boys."

Me: "Red!"

If Star Trek fans are called Trekkies, are Jeopardy fans called Trebekies?

I would only endorse this if the contestants get to through rocks at her every time they get a question right.

Why would that be entertaining? The nerds that make it onto the show have absolutely no muscle tone. It would be no worse than a five year old trying to punch Mike Tyson.

The audience getting to lob salvos of rocks on the other hand...

Oooh, sorry, but the famous Stephen we were looking for was Stephen Fry. Stephen...Fry...
