Alex comes calling for Betty
Well, one sitcom, anyway. Alex will guest as the narrator of the Hot in Cleveland season debut this Wednesday. It's a live premiere and Yahoo TV notes that Trebek has done many similar cameos over the decades. It's only appropriate that he finally turns up on Betty White's show. She's the ageless doyenne of our little genre, after all.
The linked story also notes the parade of guest stars who have dropped by the TV Land comedy. I never knew Huey Lewis showed up once, but I'm afraid I'm not a big fan (or any fan) of the show.
My favorite Alex cameo was his stint on Sesame Street. He works well with puppets, especially large red ones. But they should have gotten the genuine Jeopardy think music.
