Sad news. Probably is the equivalent to Brucie here - a fixture in US living rooms for decades.


I think Regis Philbin, who passed away earlier this year, may have been a bit closer to being a US equivalent of our Brucie.

This may seem obvious but Bob Barker.

Alex was one of my first "TV Dad's" I watched him every chance I could on Sky with Classic Concentration and Jeopardy. I can remember when Sky stopped showing it and watching Jeopardy any chance I could after that.

I was lucky enough to watch the whole Ken Jennings run on Jeopardy and I hope the rumours of him taking over are true.

Looks like his last work has been released early Razz





Can only stream in the US though.

I imagine it'll be shown on Boomerang and CITV in due course.

Jeopardy! is to resume filming next week with interim guest hosts. The first one will be Ken Jennings.

They've also added two weeks of reruns now so his last episode will air in January rather than Christmas Day as previously announced.

Be nicer and more tolerant to each other. Them's the rules.

I wouldn't be surprised if the guest hosting is so they find a potential permanent host. That's how they found the male hosts for Live with Kelly and Michael/Ryan

And good to see a photo of Alex in the opening titles...
..he may be gone, but he still appears on the show.

It may have a bigger prize budget but it makes Countdown look like The Price is Right.

I presume that's because they haven't changed the titles? Doesn't make sense to do so until they have a permanent new host.
