As of Friday, Trebek has hosted 6,829 episodes of the game show, which has been on the air in its current form since 1984. The show is in its 30th season and will begin its 31st season in September.

"It's an honor to hold the Guinness World Record for hosting Jeopardy!, which I've often said is the best of reality TV," Trebek said in a statement.

The 73-year-old Trebek's current contract runs until 2016, but last year the host said that reports of his imminent retirement were unfounded.

TIME FOR LULLABIES

Kelly Clarkson’s own little Miss Independent is here, People.com reports.

The singer welcomed her first child with husband Brandon Blackstock on Thursday, she announced Saturday on Twitter.

“Our baby girl River Rose Blackstock arrived on June 12th!” Clarkson, 32, tweeted.

Following weeks of pregnancy rumors — and a few hints from the mom-to-be — Clarkson confirmed the pregnancy four weeks after she and Blackstock tied the knot in an intimate ceremony in Tennessee.
