One of our favourite television shows, The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, made it back to television last night.

The program that ran from 1990-1996 was created by Andy Borowitz, a member of our Jewish hall of fame, Benny Medina and Susan Stevenson.

On last night’s episode of Jeopardy!, the host of the show, Alex Trebek, sang the famous television show theme song to ask one of his contestants an $800.00 question.

The contestant ended up answering the question correctly even before Trebek finished his verse, which he did a pretty great job at, I might add, with great inflection and intonation. Looks like Alex may have a career in hip hop if he ever wants to go for a career change.

After this many years as a TV show host, it might even be a welcome change.
