'Jeopardy!' & 'Wheel of Fortune' Will Not Tape With Live Audiences Due To Coronavirus Risks

Live audiences have been suspended at Jeopardy! and Wheel of Fortune.

Variety is reporting that the shows will not have live audience members for the see-able futures as coronavirus continues to spread.

There are three concerns when it comes to taping the shows with live audiences at the moment, with the biggest being that Jeopardy! host Alex Trebek has a compromised immune system as he battles stage 4 pancreatic cancer.

The other two reasons include that the audiences tend to skew older, and a lot of the audiences fly in from other places around the country to watch the show taping.

Both Wheel of Fortune and Jeopardy! will tape episodes through mid-April.

Alex just recently shared an update with fans about his treatment for cancer.
