Many of the TV Questions in our highly popular TVLine column are posed largely for fun. But, at times, when possible, we do like to hunt down an answer. Such as to the question, “Why doesn’t Alex Trebek have a say in his potential, one-day successor as Jeopardy! host?”

Speaking of whom, TVLine in turn asked Jeopardy! executive producer Harry Friedman about Trebek’s role (or lack thereof) in helping scout out the game show’s next host. “[Alex] really has no interest in being involved in that process,” said Friedman. “We would welcome his opinion, obviously, but he feels like it’s really not up to him.
