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.
Alex Trebek brought joy to millions and will be greatly missed. Recently, Alex and the @ScoobyDoo gang teamed up to solve a mystery in a new @Jeopardy! episode of Scooby-Doo and Guess Who - stream for free as we celebrate our pal Alex Trebek https://t.co/YNj7LEj65P pic.twitter.com/X0ugXMukN9— Boomerang (@BoomerangToons) November 13, 2020
Can only stream in the US though.
There will only ever be one Alex Trebek, but I'm honored to be helping Jeopardy! out with this in January. https://t.co/2m2b5IQnkw— Ken Jennings (@KenJennings) November 23, 2020
