"Why would I retire?" he also previously told PEOPLE. "If I did, my wife would probably say I was home too much and getting on her nerves!"

In the months after his death, the long-running game show launched a search to find his replacement. Aaron Rodgers, Robin Roberts and LeVar Burton were among a long list of stars to guest host before executive producer Mike Richards was initially selected as the new permanent host.

Richards, 46, resigned shortly after as his past offensive comments resurfaced. Because of this, Mayim Bialik and Ken Jennings were tapped to split Jeopardy! hosting duties.
