Longtime 'Jeopardy' host Alex Trebek has a way with words ... or, at least, as Conan O'Brien imagines it, he has a way with saying his words. Trebek's consistent cadence makes it incredibly easy for Conan to splice together the game-show host's clues into a parody video of absolute gibberish, accompanied by a pack of slack-jawed contestants. Funny, right?
It's a tale as old as time that Alex Trebek has been the host of 'Jeopardy,' but like 'The Price is Right' host Bob Barker before him, there comes a time when all men must say, "I'll take 'Retirement' for $400." With rumors swirling that the 72-year-old Alex Trebek will step down from his post in 2016, the search has quietly begun for a next-generation host, with current reports claiming 'Today' host Matt Lauer might take the gig when his own contract expires in 2015.
While this past Mondays 'How I Met Your Mother' episode "Ring Up!" may have divided a few fans, longtime viewers will be rewarded with yet another Robin Sparkles reprisal for next Monday's all-new installment "P.S. I Love You." The episode will also bring with it a cavalcade of Canadian (or at least honorarily Canadian) guest stars, from James Van Der Beek to Alex Trebek, but how would you like a first look? See the Canadian stars come out of the woodwork for 'How I Met Your Mother' inside!
Alex Trebek gave new meaning to 'Jeopardy!' when the longtime game show host landed in the hospital on Saturday after what's been deemed a "mild heart attack."
