“Jeopardy!” lovers still miss Alex Trebek, one year later

Alex Trebek died one year ago today at the age of 80. Even though I miss him, I’m glad he didn’t have to see the unfortunate drama this year surrounding his successor. Thankfully, “Jeopardy!” seems to have settled down for now, and I think Mayim Bialik and Ken Jennings are good choices as interim hosts. It’s also been cool to see so many recent multi-day champions, particularly Matt Amodio, who won more consecutive games — 38 — than anyone except Jennings. I hope the executives at “Jeopardy!” will spend some time today thinking about what Alex brought to the show and how they can honor his legacy whenever they do pick a permanent host.
