As ‘Jeopardy’ Runs Out of New Episodes During the Coronavirus Pandemic, Reruns Come to Save the Day

The time has come to say goodbye to brand new Jeopardy episodes… for now.

Since the coronavirus pandemic shutdown halted production on every show and film, the game-show has understandably run out of pre-recorded episodes to air, according to Vanity Fair. 

Today, Friday, June 12, marks the last new pre-COVID episode of the Alex Trebek-hosted show for the near future (or until the shutdowns are lifted and production resumes).

Starting Monday, June 15, the series will dig into the vault to air reruns and encore presentations before airing a rebroadcast of  the 2019 Tournament of Champions starting July 6.

“For the first time, we have a chance to shine a light on each individual player before we revisit a big tournament,” executive producer Mike Richards said in a statement on E! Online.

“Some of these contestants played quite a while ago, so we hope that highlighting their biggest games will provide a deeper understanding of their specific strengths and how they earned their places in the Tournament of Champions.”

While many states are lifting stay-at-home orders, the game show has to be particularly careful considering Alex Trebek is battling stage 4 pancreatic cancer. Due to his compromised immune system, he is more likely to get infected with the novel virus.

But even Trebek is getting a little stir-crazy at home. Are we really surprised? He’s spent his whole life spearheading the game show and clearly enjoys what he does. 

“Alex is looking forward to resuming production as soon as we are able to do so. He’s told us he wants to be one of the first shows back in production,” a rep for Trebek told TVLine.

Safety first!

‘Schitt’s Creek’ Launching in National Syndication Following Emmys Sweep

Published

Schitt's Creek to Be Available for National Broadcast Syndication

The small town of Schitt’s Creek is going nationwide! 

After sweeping the Emmys on Sunday, September 20, the half-hour sitcom is coming to a TV near you. 

You’ll be able to watch the fan-favorite comedy anywhere as it’s being launched into national syndication across U.S broadcast markets starting on September 28, per the press release from Lionsgate’s Debmar-Mercury, who owns the domestic broadcast rights. 

Prior to Sunday’s show, the Pop TV original had zero Emmy’s, but now, it’s being referred to as a nine-time Emmy Award-winning comedy. Talk about bragging rights. 

During the 2020 virtual show, it won all seven of the major comedy categories and became the first to win all four comedy-acting categories in one year. 

QUIZ: Which ‘Schitt’s Creek’ Character Are You?

The cast includes Emmy Award winners Eugene Levy, Catherine O’Hara, Daniel Levy, Annie Murphy and Chris Elliott. Rounding out the cast are Emily Hampshire, Jennifer Robertson, Noah Reid, Sarah Levy, Karen Robinson, Dustin Milligan, John Hemphill, Rizwan Manji, and Tim Rozon.

Schitt’s Creek centers on an outrageously wealthy video store magnate, Johnny Rose (Eugene Levy); his former soap-star wife Moira (Catherine O’Hara); and their two adult children – the self-described black sheep of the family David (Daniel Levy) and career socialite Alexis (Annie Murphy). When the family suddenly find themselves broke, they have no choice but to move to Schitt’s Creek, a small-town Johnny once bought as a joke. Forced to live out of a motel, with their pampered lives a memory, they struggle to find jobs and relationships and, most importantly, figure out what it means to be a family in the loveable town they’ve reluctantly come to call home. 

Debmar-Mercury Co-Presidents Ira Bernstein and Mort Marcus, commented, “What begins as a fish-out-of-water story quickly develops into a nuanced love letter to family, delivered with warmth, humanity and perfect comedic timing. With a gifted cast and whip-smart writing, it’s easy to see why ‘Schitt’s Creek’ appeals to Emmy voters, critics and viewers, and has built a loyal and passionate fan base. We are excited to bring the Emmy Award-winning series to broadcast television stations and introduce the iconic Rose family to a new audience.”

Previously, Schitt’s Creek was available for streaming on Netflix.

The sixth and final season will be available on the platform starting Wednesday, October 7.

This Is Us Season 5 Moves Up Premiere Date - Find Out When You Can Reunite with the Pearsons!

The wait for new episodes of This Is Us is almost over. 

The show’s fifth season will premiere on Tuesday, October 27, a few weeks ahead of its previously announced November 10 premiere

NBC made the announcement during a commercial that ran during the season finale of America’s Got Talent on Wednesday.

The show’s official social media accounts also revealed the good news writing: “We just couldn’t wait any longer, but we have a feeling you won’t mind.”

The reunion with the Pearsons will be a two-hour event, which will hopefully answer some burning questions left behind by season 4 like who Madison’s doctor is and why Nicky was by Rebecca’s bedside instead of Miguel. 

Oh, Baby! ‘This Is Us’ Actress Mandy Moore Pregnant With First Child

The series has about a month to turn over new episodes as TVLine notes that the series is set to start production this week following a mandatory hiatus brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic. 

Like many shows including FOX’s The Resident, the season isn’t shying away from reality but will instead tackle the pandemic “head-on,” series creator Dan Fogelman revealed on Twitter.

It’s unclear how the public health crisis will play into the show’s narrative or how it’ll affect the tight-knit Pearson clan. Maybe that’s why Randall and Kevin haven’t seen each other for years? Yes, we’re trying to pretend that big explosive fight in the This Is Us Season 4 finale never happened! 

Turning it over to you, Cravers. Are you excited for the return of This Is Us?
