The studio at Sony where Jeopardy records has officially been renamed the Alex Trebek Stage.

Just curious, do any other programs tape on the Jeopardy! or Wheel of Fortune stages, or are they exclusively home to those two programs?
There is a fifth dimension beyond that which is known to man. It is a dimension as vast as space and as timeless as infinity. It is the middle ground between light and shadow, between science and superstition, and it lies between the pit of man's fears and the summit of his knowledge. This is the dimension of imagination. It is an area which we call the Twilight Zone.

I believe that stage, formerly studio 10, is exclusively Jeopardy's. Sony's website states that studios 7, 10 and 11 are "occupied by long-term clients and are unavailable for the foreseeable future."

I'd wager the whole thing that 11 will become the Pat Sajak Stage as well, just like how 33 at TVC is for Bob Barker. Still, J! is very fortunate that it has Matt Amodio still around, since during these superchamps, the focus turns away from the host and more towards the players, and after all, its the contestants who are the stars.

The set also got a freshening, along with the theme. The category during Final Jeopardy! now also appears above the clue during the 30 seconds. But I'm definitely content with more guest hosts or even an acting host for now.

Here's the link, courtesy of TMZ

As mentioned elsewhere, just name Trebek's successor on a permanent basis already!

That aside, I like this move.  They originally announced Mayim with Mike earlier, and they can't go back on that.  Ken was always going to be the definitive choice.  Maybe not a favorite to several, but I think of Ken before anyone else as it relates to Jeopardy (save for Alex of course, even Johnny).

Still, great decision.  I don't need to see another year of guest hosts

Using just Mayim and Ken for the rest of the year is a very good move. Perhaps later in the year one of their schedules will clear up more so one could host on a permanent basis. My gut feeling is Ken becomes the permanent daily syndicated show host with Mayim continuing to do the primetime specials/spinoffs unless Mayim's show on FOX gets cancelled which would allow her to become the full permanent host.

Mayim would be the permanent host if her schedule allowed it, or Ken if his was clearer.

They are exclusive to those shows. In addition to practical considerations, keeping those sets up full-time means there's always at least one recognizable set for the Sony tour guides to show.

I just hope when Ken does guest host later on he will be allowed to say "Thank You Alex" at the end of FJ..   

I also like this move.

In an interview on last night's The Daily Show with Trevor Noah, LeVar Burton has revealed that he does not want the hosting job at all. And I loved the analogy Trevor gave that "the shipwreck that leads you to the magical island."

As for Ken and Mayim sharing duties as guest hosts for the rest of the year, I think it's a great idea they are doing. And for now, avoids the cavalcade of the (insert name here) should be a guest host on Jeopardy!.

To be fair, the guest host thing was a pretty good idea.  While not all the hosts were fantastic, it was a unique experience.  It was diverse (while risky).  Doing it for another year would not have been ideal.  Would've become stale.  If you have 16 hosts, you don't have one.  Or two.

I don't see Mayim quitting her acting career if her FOX show bombs.  She's been rather successful, and she isn't old.  If it doesn't work out, she'll move onto what's next.

If anything, I can see Ken hosting both versions, but in time, if it's Ken for SYN & Mayim for the specials, that would be great.  Plus, Ken could host a primetime special which would be a one-time thing

I feel like they are using Ken to guest host when Mayim schedule is busy and if her show tanks then they will announce her as the new host. I can't believe this is going on for over a year.

Do you think Ken will get the job as the host Full time and Mayim doing the specials?

I know Ken has The Chase and one other game show I believe on GSN... Mayim has own show on FOX.
