Matt Lauer or Anderson Cooper May Replace Alex Trebek on Jeopardy

Don't worry, Jeopardy fans, Alex Trebek isn't going anywhere anytime soon. But the 72-year-old host is expected to step down in 2016, the New York Post reports, and Today show host Matt Lauer is being considered to replace him.

Matt has been struggling on Today and sources told the Post he's not expected to re-sign with the morning show when his $25 million a year deal expires in 2015. The site says Anderson Cooper is also being considered to fill Alex's clue-dropping spot, but Matt's name is currently at the top of the list.

What do you think? It's hard to imagine Jeopardy without Alex Trebek, but if the show must go on without him, who should take his spot?
