I've read the original blog post; Ken was joking. Whoever reported this blown it out of proportion. (He also suggested that Trebek use a Bob Barker-like signoff but for marijuana instead of pets :D) EDIT: Read his post that I pulled from Google's cache. (edited by JALman on 25.7.06 1708)

He claimed Trebek was replaced by a robot, for God's sake! In the real world, WWE believes that no matter what our race, religious creed or ethnic background in America, we all share the common bond of being Americans. American-Arabs are a part of the fabric of America, and they should be embraced by all of us.

I can't believe this fellow could be that back biting. Rusty Shackleford is just the name he uses to order Pizza with.

It seems no one is picking up on the joke, seeing as I've seen the story both on CNN and the Comcast homepage as "Jeopardy" Champs Jabs Show. Good Lord. "You know what you need? -- DJFrostyFreeze Some new quotes in your sig. Yeah, I said it."

Huh. I read it originally on CNN.com, and it was the
exact same fucking article,
except for between these two paragraphs:
"You're like the Dorian Gray of syndication," he says. "You seem to think `change' means replacing a blue polyethylene backdrop with a slightly different shade of blue polyethylene backdrop every presidential election or so."
A call by The Associated Press to "Jeopardy!" spokesman Jeff Ritter was not immediately returned Tuesday.
In a posting Jennings made Tuesday, he calls the entry "a humor piece."
So Yahoo can go screw themselves on this one as far as I'm concerned. What's more, Yahoo's article says that Jennings "blasts" Jeopardy, whereas CNN said he "jabs" it.

It was a bit of a let down, but I expected it to be since my expectations were sky high. I thought the laugh track was a nice FU to NBC for trying to fiddle with this show.
