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.

At 8:46 a.m. on Tuesday, September 11, most national news outlets took a break from their regular programming to air a special "moment of silence" from New York City and Washington D.C. to honor the victims of 9/11. We say "most" because, as it turns out, not everyone was a participant. While FOX, CBS, ABC, CNBC and MSNBC went quiet at this time, which was the moment 11 years ago when the first plane hit the Twin Towers, NBC continued on with the 'Today' show, which just so happened to feature an interview with Kris Jenner of 'Keeping Up with the Kardashians.'
