We may have lost Alex, but the show must go on. Alex wouldn’t want it any other way. Please, let’s remember him over the next six weeks of banked episodes, and then afford him the same respect to his successors that we afforded Alex when he replaced Art Fleming in 1984.

More information about Final Jeopardy: (The following write-up is original content and is copyright 2020 The Jeopardy! Fan. It may not be copied without linked attribution back to this page.)
Based on T.S. Eliot’s Old Possum’s Book of Practical Cats, the famous Andrew Lloyd Webber musical began its life as a 1980 song cycle at the Sydmonton Festival, known as Practical Cats. By the time the West End debut came around the next year, it dropped the Practical in the title. It’s the fourth-longest running Broadway musical and the sixth-longest running West End Musical. Interestingly, Judi Dench was originally cast in the dual role of Grizabella and Jennyanydots in the original West End cast, but an Achilles tendon injury took her out. Dench ended up playing Old Deuteronomy in the 2019 film.
