Headline Goes Here

You know you’re addicted to television when… you phrase the start of every conversation in the form of question to honor Alex Trebek.

Jeopardy host Alex Trebek has set a world record for hosting the most episodes of a single tv game show.

Friday night's episode will mark the Guiness Book of World Record-setting 6,829th episode of the iconic quiz show.

"It's an honor to hold the Guinness World Record for hosting JEOPARDY!," Trebek said. "We have had incredible support from our viewers for the past 30 years, and without them, I wouldn't have set this record."

Jeopardy will begin its 30th season this fall and airs on Local 4 weeknights at 7:30 p.m.
