I hope he is recovering well.

If for some reason he doesn't, the thought of a replacement has never crossed my mind.

Wonder who it would be. Can't picture the show without him.

To Carlos - you should have seen Jeopardy when Art Fleming hosted it and the "answers" were not dumbed down as they are now. Fleming actually knew the material. Good luck to Trebek but remember Regis Philbin is always out there!!!

It's fairly obvious you like seeing your name in print, so I thought I'd help you out a little.

I nominate Ken Jennings for Alex's replacement. He knew more about the material than anybody.
