I live in West Philadelphia. When people discover this fact about me, they usually make some joke about me spending my days on the playground or guys that are up to no good making trouble in my neighborhood. What a perfectly hilarious and original joke that doesn’t get funnier every time I hear it! Having said that, Alex Trebek can rap the Fresh Prince theme song to me any time he wants, as he did on last night’s Jeopardy!
Forget the summer of George. It’s the summer of Alex . The Jeopardy! host continued his tradition of singing hip-hop songs with this wonderful rendition of Rihanna’s “Umbrella.” Eh-Eh-Eh.
For over 30 years now, Alex Trebek has been a constant presence in our homes as the host of Jeopardy, where he acts as the world’s most lovable know-it-all. In that time, contestants have given him some pretty funny responses. Since Trebek celebrated his 75th birthday this week, it seemed like the perfect time to look at some of the funniest responses of all.

On Wednesday evening, a Jeopardy! contestant named Talia won the hearts of the internet with her Final Jeopardy answer “What is the Love Ballad of Turd Ferguson?” referencing Norm Macdonald’s swaggering Saturday Night Live impersonation of Burt Reynolds to a straight-faced Alex Trebek and laughter-stifling audience. As we pointed out last night , it was “one of the finest moments in the history of this or any other game show.” But it gets even better because the reason why Trebek didn’t have a reaction to the joke was because Alex Trebek does not know who Turd Ferguson is.
John Oliver took some liberties while onstage at Sunday evening’s Emmys ceremony . Oliver presented the award for Directing in a Special Movie or Limited series, but first took a moment to fire some amusing shots at Alex Trebek:
“A limited series is, of course, a series that only runs for a limited time. Although, let’s be honest.
The last time we played this “Phone Booth” trivia game on The Tonight Show , Kevin Spacey took on Jimmy Fallon and ended up being trapped with a wide selection of guest stars, including NBA star Karl-Anthony Towns, Mae Whitman, and Big Bird. It must’ve been a success because it came back tonight with Shaq and Hugh Jackman stepping inside the booth for some trivia.

Meet Matt Jackson, a 23-year-old paralegal from Washington, D.C. who is currently crushing the competition in a nine-day winning streak on Jeopardy , and likely not going anywhere anytime soon. In a profile posted to Jeopardy ‘s website this week , Jackson says he was encouraged to try out for the show by his friend Sam Spaulding, who finished second place in the 2010 College Championship, winning $50,000.
It's not due to the rampant scourge of anti-Canadian prejudice.

Sometimes game show contestants are the only truly funny people on television. Case in point: Becky Sullivan, a contestant on an episode of “Jeopardy!”, couldn't think of the right answer to a Final Jeopardy! clue about flowers. Her response might be the funniest answer in the show's history.
The clue: “The flower pictured here is called this, also a disparaging term for people on the political left.”
Sullivan's guess: “What is a pansy?”
The October 12 edition of 'Jeopardy!' featured the show's host learning about nerdcore and promptly giving a verdict on the genre.
Another case of Alex flexing his rap knowledge to the world.
You never knew until right now that you want to hear Alex Trebek rap along to "Panda" by Desiigner, but your live will never be the same.
'Jeopardy!' may not have the immediate double entendre thrills of 'Family Feud,' but Trebek's game show still does must-see moments right.
If only the answer had been, "He's known for his deadly herpes and explosive diarrhea."
“Jeopardy!” always has supremely intelligent contestants, but that doesn't mean they're humorless. Over Alex Trebek's 30-year run as host of America's favorite quiz, we've seen a number of hilarious “Final Jeopardy!” responses that even caught the unflappable host off guard. In honor of Ari Voukydis, a recent “Jeopardy!” contestant who earned a huge laugh with his “Final Jeopardy!” response this week, let's take at 10 times we've seen some hilarious stuff come up on those little blue screens.
Alex Trebek is an American icon. A Canadian American Icon.

For Alex Trebek's birthday, let's remember the worst impressions from SNL's 'Celebrity Jeopardy!' that we still love anyway.
One more time for Alex Trebek's birthday, here are some great moments in geniuses messing up on 'Jeopardy!.'
“To Tell the Truth,” one of the greatest television game shows with a timeless conceit, is purportedly coming back to air. Fremantle is heading up a new primetime version of the series that puts “an update of the familiar format with a surprising new twist that adds action and suspense and raises the stakes.”
I'm all for it!

Alex Trebek”s mustache is making a “Jeopardy!” comeback
Trebek”s distinctive mustache hasn”t been seen since 2001. It”ll return for the new season kicking off on Monday.
Report: A doctor in Joan Rivers” entourage performed a surprise biopsy on her
The NY Daily News reports that such a procedure shouldn”t have been performed outside a hospital.

Larry David: “I guess the odds would be against” more “Curb Your Enthusiasm” – “probably 6 to 1”
Larry David tells Bill Simmons that he hasn”t given up on “Curb Your Enthusiasm,” but he says the “Seinfeld” finale “taught me a lesson that if I ever did another show, I wasn”t going to wrap it up.” When asked that it sounded like he wasn”t doing another season, David responded: “I guess the odds would be against it.
In what may have been a preemptive strike at The Simpsons , Stephen Colbert’s final Colbert Report sign off closed with a classic Colbert toss back to Jon Stewart, who then closed the show with a nostalgic Moment of Zen.
Did The Colbert Report standalone program even happen? Was it all just one long Daily Show remote?
Alex Trebek read the lyrics to "Girls, Girls, Girls" by Motley Crue on "Jeopardy!" last night, and he gave it the full Trebek.
