The producers of “Jeopardy!” have made a change in the way they will honor their late host, Alex Trebek. The last episodes Trebek recorded were originally supposed to air the last week of December, but those have been pushed back.

According to the announcement, ten of Alex Trebek’s best episodes will run the weeks of December 21st and December 28th. Then his final shows will air during the week of January 4th.

Beyond that, the plan is to resume production of new episodes on November 30th with various interim hosts. The new shows will begin airing Monday, January 11th with the game show’s all-time champion Ken Jennings (below) taking the helm first. Could this actually be his audition for a shot at becoming the permanent host?
