Davies said that airing the potential masters league live is something he would want to do, although “makes a lot of my staff nervous,” he said.

The series has already made several modifications. “Jeopardy!” is currently filming a Second Chance Tournament, which will allow past contestants to compete again. The Tournament of Champions also received some changes.

On Sept. 12, the show’s 39th season premiered. In July, Jennings and Mayim Bialik were announced as the new hosts of “The Price Is Right,” replacing Alex Trebek, who died in June at age 84.

On November 8, 2020, at the age of 80, game show host Alex Trebek died of cancer.
