Figured this was coming. He apparently filmed his last show on 10/29 so he stuck with it until they end.

New shows will continue to air through Christmas.

Wonder who the new host will be? Ken Jennings?

Sad news but he fought the disease with courage. 

As far as a replacement, Ken Jennings was indeed a rumored replacement.  I thought Jeff Probst would be a good host.  He hosted Rock and Roll Jeopardy years ago and did well.

Please everyone, if you're not feeling right don't ignore it

See your doctor. Don't skip your screenings.

Or else...

He was ok but lets be honest here, he was no Art Fleming.

And Johnny Gilbert is no Don Pardo. I wonder if Johnny will retire since he is about 95.
