Trebek’s final chapter achieved No. 1 in all of syndication. TV ratings were also up 29% compared to the previous week. Interestingly, Trebek’s last Jeopardy! did decline compared to early 2020. At that point, there was added viewer interest due to the ABC primetime tournament Jeopardy! The Greatest of All Time. 

According to Nielsen data, Trebek’s final episode aired on Friday, Jan. 8, 2021 and drew 14 million viewers. Trebek’s farewell show was the most-watched episode since James Holzhauer finally ended his incredible winning streak. (About 419 days.)

Trebek shared that he was diagnosed with stage 4 pancreatic cancer in March 2019, and the iconic game show host lost his battle with the disease on Nov. 8, 2020. After his diagnosis, Trebek continued to host Jeopardy!, and he even left viewers with a message of wisdom and kindness.
