Alex Trebek Dead Jeopardy Cheers

We here at TVLine are mourning the loss of Jeopardy! host Alex Trebek, who passed away on Sunday at the age of 80 after a long battle with pancreatic cancer. Of course, we’ll miss his effortless grace and sly wit as host of the syndicated quiz show, which he emceed for more than three decades — but we’ll also miss all the self-deprecating TV cameos he made over the years.

Trebek poked fun at his brainy persona on quite a few TV shows, with memorable appearances on all-time classics like Cheers, The Golden Girls and The X-Files. To honor his immeasurable legacy, we’ve pulled together a collection of his best small-screen cameos.
