Jeopardy! Will Re-Air Its Most Iconic Episodes—Including a Very Special Appearance by Martha Stewart
The entire country watched as Ken Jennings, Brad Rutter, and James Holzhauer competed in Jeopardy! The Greatest of All Time in January of this year. The beloved half-hour game show hosted by Alex Trebek is a household staple and has now re-attracted fans during quarantine. The game show recently announced that they will be re-airing 20 of the most popular episodes from the shows' 36 series history. While no one can quite play the game like Jennings or Holzhauer, there is one very special guest who's epsiode we can't wait to watch: Martha Stewart.
Our founder appeared on an early episode of Celebrity Jeopardy! alongside basketball player Charles Barkley and Jeff Probst, host of reality television show Survivor. The episode originally aired on February 6, 2001, but you can catch it this month on Wednesday, July 29.
The producers of Jeopardy! went through more than 8,000 episodes to create four weeks of unforgettable viewing. Starting on Monday, July 20, Jeopardy! will air a series of "firsts" including the first ever Jeopardy! episode, the first Jeopardy! with a surprising ending, first "super champion," the first $100,000 champion, and the first tournament final.
The following week will air five episodes of Celebrity Jeopardy! featuring guests including Carol Burnett, Regis Philbin, Harry Connick Jr., Jodie Foster, Wayne Brady, Eric Idle, and Cheech Marin. The final two weeks of reruns will air the "Million Dollar Masters" quarterfinals, semifinals, and finals.
Last week, Trebek announced that he will stop cancer treatment if the next round is unsuccessful, as reported by People. The Jeopardy! host was diagnosed with stage four pancreatic cancer in March 2019. "I am doing well. I have been continuing my treatment and it is paying off, though it does fatigue me a great deal. My numbers are good. I am feeling great," he revealed in a new video. His new memoir, The Answer Is…Reflections On My Life, ($23.40, amazon.com) will be released on July 21, 2020.
