I honestly don't know if Jeopardy survives without him. It's been one of my favorite shows for years and I can't picture anyone else doing it. His courage in the face of a grim prognosis was truly admirable.

They've been priming Jennings to take over - and he's the guy the Jeopardy fans would accept. They had a week where he was reading the answers to a category. Seemed like a dry run.

Now is not the type obviously but the show will continue - as it should. It is one of the few shows that has a definite positive impact on the world.

Alex would hate for it to end just because of him.

What is ###### 2020?

Damn it. Grew up (well, from my teens) watching Jeopardy, then my kids started watching so they literally grew up watching him.

He had such a calming voice and cadence that made him a perfect fit for Jeopardy. I will always remember his appearance he had the XFiles.

RIP to a great Canadian broadcasting legend.

Ken would be fine, but the feel of show changes, much like The Price is Right was never the same without Bob Barker.

I met him on a Disney Cruise. I had a wee chat with him over lunch, and he seemed like a really great person. He will be missed.

Well, that's very sad. Glad he got to do that thing for the Sens at the draft before he went. Nice way to remember him at the end.

He taped his final episode on October 29 so it seems he kept his cancer at bay until almost the end which is something to be thankful.

They said his final episodes will be aired around Christmas. That will be must-watch TV.

edit: by they I mean CBC.
