Jeopardy is back and so is host, Alex Trebek.
Jeopardy began its 36th season on the air Monday evening. “I’m happy to report that I’m still here” announced Trebek at the open of Monday’s season premier.
Earlier this year Trebek announced that he had stage 4 pancreatic cancer. Trebek then updated in May during his interview with People Magazine that some of his tumors had “shrunk by almost 50 percent” and that he was near remission.
He credited his fans for their “good thoughts, their positive energy directed towards me and their prayers.”
Trebek added, “I’ve got a lot of love out there headed in my direction and a lot of prayer, and I will never, ever minimize the value of that.”
