Alex Trebek Details How 'Jeopardy!' Is Being Filmed As Production Resumes

Jeopardy! was one of the many television shows to shut down production as the coronavirus pandemic swept over the nation.

In the past, five episodes of the competition quiz show have been filmed each day, with two days of taping every other week.

Now, that filming schedule is changing a bit, according to host Alex Trebek.

“We’ve redesigned our set to separate the contestants and myself a little bit more from them,” he shared in his interview with Good Morning America. “So we are taking all kinds of precautions. Our testing procedure now is done online.”

Alex continued, “We’ll do three and take a short break, and then do the last two. And we’ll see how that goes, and if it’s too much for me, we can always cut back a little bit, maybe do four a day.”

There is still no set date for Jeopardy!‘s return, however, Alex is looking forward to getting back to work.

“It’s the best kind of reality television I feel. And people watch it, and if they come up with one or two correct responses in that half hour, they feel pretty good about themselves,” he added. “And that’s great.”

If you missed it, Alex joked about the only celebrity he’d like to replace him.
