I've never considered the option of these daytime game shows NOT being renewed.

That's true, I feel like they've always been there and always will be until the hosts die or something.

But, to be fair, I haven't watched either of these shows for years.

Jocelyn use to watch WoF a few times a week before we had Evie and had better cable. She would do better than most of the contestants #mywifeissmart

Jocelyn's dad DVRs every episode of Jeopardy and watches them later. I guess that's why he's the best trivia person I've ever met.

'Jeopardy!' Host Alex Trebek Diagnosed with Stage 4 Pancreatic Cancer

Trebek shared the news on YouTube from his Jeopardy Studio in Culver City, California, telling his fans,
"Hi everyone, I have some news to share with all of you and it’s in keeping with my longtime policy of being open and transparent with our Jeopardy! fan base. I also wanted to prevent you from reading or hearing some overblown or inaccurate reports regarding my health. So therefore, I wanted to be the one to pass along this information.

"Now, just like 50,000 other people in the United States each year, this week I was diagnosed with stage 4 pancreatic cancer. Now normally, the prognosis for this is not very encouraging, but I’m going to fight this, and I’m going to keep working," he added. "And with the love and support of my family and friends and with the help of your prayers also, I plan to beat the low survival rate statistics for this disease."

In classic Trebek fashion, he closed the video with wit and humor, saying, "Truth told, I have to! Because under the terms of my contract, I have to host 'Jeopardy!' for three more years! So help me. Keep the faith and we’ll win. We’ll get it done."

Was totally shocked how he presented it with the exact same composure he has on the show. Very sad.

James Holzhauer breaks Jeopardy record with one-day earnings of $110,914

He went into final Jeopardy with $72,600 and wagered $38,314 specifically so that his winning total would be his daughter's birthday (November 9, 2014). The absolute mad lad

For context of how nuts this is, the previous one-day record (by Roger Craig) was $77,000. He ended up breaking the record by just over $33,000, and was already just $4,400 shy going into Final Jeopardy.

If you are not watching Jeopardy right now you need. The current 9 game champion has broken the all time single day score 3 times!

The all time score was $77,000
James has scored more than that 3 times in 9 games. Twice making over $100K
James sets a new single-day cash winnings record of $110,914.

James is easily the most dominant player the show has ever seen. That's not hyperbole. He is now the 2nd highest earning player on regular season games (not including the all stars that play for $1M). The guy he unseated earned $430K over 19 games. James now has $566K in 9 games.

Some notes on his strategy:

-In single jeopardy, he starts with the highest value clues and then goes down. He picks all the $1000 clues first. This is very unusual. Most people like to get a feel for the category before choosing the highest value clues.
-In double jeopardy, he starts from the $1200 clue (in the middle of the category) and then goes up in value from there. He is clearly hunting the daily doubles.
-In single jeopardy, if he hits the daily double, he always bets it all.
-Depending on when he hits a daily double in double jeopardy, he will either double or pick a high dollar amount. He never bets small.
-He bets big in final jeopardy, but he is usually so far ahead that he is not risking losing the game, just what he will win.

He is just crushing people. I think only one of his games was not a runaway at final jeopardy.

That's all sooooo cocky!

How can someone be so smart?! Like I said before, I don't watch this show and don't generally care about it, but it would be fun to watch his run. I won't of course do that, but it would be fun.

Half a million second all time. The guy in third was on 25 more episodes though

Poor Jamie! She buzzed in first one time and then got it wrong.

This is from 2014. Surprised it took 4-5 years to get on Jeopardy. This dude is impressive.

I'm impressed by the host reading them so quickly as well. I think she was the host of Dog Eat Dog?
