Everyone is always Alex Trebek, that Canadian is so great on Jeopardy.
And while I agree, I think he was at his REAL peak from the years 1987-1991 when he hosted the game show Classic Concentration which aired weekdays at 10:30a on NBC. I watched this show every day of school vacations from third to seventh grade. It showed the lighter, softer side of Alex because let’s be honest matching prizes is a lot easier than being wicked smart.
Instead of being all, Literature on TV for $500 Alex! “This 1930s novel featured a character named Homer Simpson who may have served as inspiration for the donut and Duff-loving dad on The Simpsons” and me being all “What is The Day of the Locust by Nathanael West?” a contestant on Classic just had to remember what was behind each number. Easy peasy. I was super good at this game show since I was a master at Memory.
