It’s been quite the ride this year for “Jeopardy”. Between honoring the passing of long-time host Alex Trebek, to a slew of celeb guests hosts, the gameshow finally has a permanent MC.

Since Alex Trebek leaves some large shoes to fill, going forward the show will now have TWO hosts! And for the first time ever, a woman will be among them. Mayim Bialik and Mike Richards will take the reins for the 38th season to start in September.
