What is the turnaround time on these things, filming to airing? I don't know how long her run will be, but that had to be a trip for her to watch the legend grow into all corners of pop culture knowing she was the giantslayer.

I think the articles I've read said her first win was taped in mid-March, so 10 weeks or so?

I enjoyed the GOAT tournament. Too bad Brad was so outmatched.

Ann Curry and Gayle King are high on the list for Alex's replacement, according to the internet. That would be cool. Jennings and Holzhauer are also at least being thrown around. Holzhauer is a great contestant, but way too awkward to host. Jennings, I think, would be great.

Jennings would be a good choice. Tough act to follow.

Question answered: G.O.A.T. Jeopardy! contestant Ken Jennings has been named the iconic game show’s temporary new guest host, succeeding the legendary Alex Trebek, who died on Nov. 8 of pancreatic cancer. Additional guest hosts will be revealed in the coming days/weeks. A permanent host will be announced at a later date.

Jennings ascension to guest host was foreshadowed last September when he joined the show as a consulting producer. In that new role, he presented his own special video categories, developed projects, assisted with contestant outreach, and served as a general ambassador for the show.
