Art Fleming Biography
Art Fleming hosted the original version of the TV quiz show Jeopardy! from 1964 to 1975. The show's popularity and distinctive format -- contestants were given an answer and had to ask the right question -- made Art Fleming one of TV's best-known quiz hosts. He hosted a brief revival of Jeopardy! during the 1978-79 season. Jeopardy! was resurrected in a syndicated version in 1984, with Alex Trebek replacing Fleming as host. But Art Fleming remained a fan favorite, even making an appearance in the 'Weird Al' Yankovic music video parody "I Lost on Jeopardy."
