Ken Jennings is taking over as the new Jeopardy! host... for this week.


Last night the game show veteran served as Jeopardy!'s first guest host since the passing of beloved host Alex Trebek.

In a promotional video for the show, Jennings said:

"Sharing this stage with Alex Trebek was one of the greatest honors of my life. Like all 'Jeopardy!' fans, I miss Alex very much."

Known as 'The Greatest of All Time," Jennings is no stranger to taking the Jeopardy! stage. He holds the record for most consecutive games won and highest winnings in regular-season play.

Acclaimed journalist Katie Couric will also serve as a guest-host for the season. The show has yet to announce a permanent replacement for Trebek.
