A set of five “Jeopardy!” episodes with late host Alex Trebek are scheduled to air from Jan. 4 to Jan. 8,  marking the last new installments of the series to include the beloved host.

Taped in late October, the upcoming episodes took place just before Trebek died on Nov. 8. The first episode in the week’s set of content will feature a message about the importance of the holiday season of giving. The last episode, airing Jan. 8, will also include a tribute to the show’s decades-long host for his contribution to the staple series.

Though Trebek will no longer be able to host “Jeopardy!,” the show will go on in following weeks. Guest host Ken Jennings, known for his status as the contestant with the longest win streak on the show, will take over beginning Jan. 11.

Trebek revealed his stage-four pancreatic cancer diagnosis in March 2019, but went on to continue hosting the popular game show throughout his battle with the disease. By his last day in studio filming on Oct. 29, the host had taken part in over 8,200 episodes over the course of 37 “Jeopardy!” seasons.

His work on the show has landed him a record from Guinness World Records for hosting the most episodes of a single game show. He also earned five Daytime Emmy awards due to his role on the long-running show, as well.

“Jeopardy!” is still on its 37th season. It is produced by Sony Pictures Television and distributed domestically by CBS Television Distribution. International distribution is headed by ViacomCBS Global Distribution Group.

20 must-read health books
The Health section of your local bookstore or online book retailer looks different than it did a couple of decades ago, when titles like Food-Free at Last: How I Learned to Eat Air or The South Beach Diet Supercharged were popular picks. Still today, authors—including would-be physicians, B-list celebs and underqualified fitness experts—dole out “health advice,” trying to convince readers that running themselves ragged with dieting and strenuous exercise will make them thinner, prettier, and happier. In fact, it has had an adverse effect, especially on women. The cruel dieting culture, incessant calorie counting, and little to no representation of health experts from diverse communities, along with the unrealistic standards set by the beauty and fashion industries, have led to eating disorders and severe mental health issues. Today, coupled with wellness, the topics covered in health and well-being books focus more on making healthy choices daily, keeping active, practising self-care, and being mindful of our mental health. Thanks to the body positivity movement, and some notable influencers in this space, we know that healthy bodies come in all shapes and sizes. This is also a time when we are hearing from more underrepresented voices in this space, making health advice and wellness tips more inclusive and relevant for all. Start the new year off with motivation, stories, and advice on how to live a healthier, happier life that works for you. Get moving by adding these 20 must-read health books to your cart.
