Read to Me

This Friday, November 13, at 9PM | 8C, MeTV pays tribute to legendary game show host Alex Trebek with a special presentation of two sitcom classics. Watch as two cherished characters of television comedy play as contestants on Jeopardy!

First, at 9PM | 8C, Vicki Lawrence's Thelma "Mama" Harper heads to Jeopardy! in the 1987 Mama's Family episode "Mama on Jeopardy!"

Then, at 9:30PM | 8:30C, tune in for a special airing of Cheers, when know-it-all mailman Cliff Clavin plays Jeopardy! in the unforgetable "What Is… Cliff Clavin?"

Trebek plays himself, the host of Jeopardy!, in both episodes, which rank as favorites amongst fans. 

The longtime host of Jeopardy!, who began hosting the game show in 1984, passed away on November 8. He was 80 years old.

See the MeTV schedule for more details.

I will watch the two shows with Alex Trebek, even though I don't like ''Mama's Family''. I do however like ''Cheers'', and miss it on TV. I wish MeTV would pick it up and put on their schedule. For instance, remove The Flintstones at 6 pm and Happy Days at 6:30 pm weeknights. And also put Gilligan's Island 3 hour tour on Sundays followed by The Monkees.

I keep thinking about the SNL “Celebrity Jeopardy” skits with Will Ferrell as Alex Trebek and Darrell Hammond as Sean Connery. Eerie that Connery and Trebek passed just days apart. “Suck it Trebek! Haha”. RIP

Bea Arthur's character on Golden Girls was also a Jeopardy contestant with Alex Trebek.

I personally could question allot of answers, never in the form of a question, Alex was the ultimate professional and I believe our current leaders could and should learn from his example. Smart people don't have to tell others how smart they are, and don't believe the person who has to tell you how smart they are. Alex always down played his intelligence and allowed the viewers to be the judge. RIP Alex we will miss you terribly. To early to talk replacing Alex but Laura Coats should be considered.

Alec Trebek announced the Ottawa Senator's draft pick at the last NHL draft in October. Did it as a Jeopardy question.
