In a world full of uncertainty and chaos, calm reigns in simple anecdotes and facts.
It has always been one of the Dangerthe main selling points. For 37 years, viewers have also been able to find solace in the knowledge that Alex Trebek – the man who has become synonymous with the No.1 Ranked Quiz – always stood behind the podium with his index cards and unfazed sound.
Tonight, Trebek fans will see his last show. Trebek died in November after being diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in March 2018. After the diagnosis, Trebek, who was very public on his fight against the disease, continued to host the show for a year and a half. He finished filming on October 29, 2019; no one knew then that it would be his last day in the studio.
Danger has yet to name a permanent replacement for Trebek, but next week guest hosts of what the show calls “in the Danger family ”will take over. The show’s executive producer Mike Richards said Trebek believes in the importance of Danger and “always said he wanted the show to continue after him.”
