Alex Trebek sold his soul to the devil last night when the categories on Jeopardy! were lyrics to Carly Rae Jepsen’s pop hit “Call Me Maybe.” The episode of Teen Jeopardy! was clearly trying to be hip in an era where a game show that revolves around guessing things you could just Google has lost some of its relevance. If they really wanted to stay in vogue, the categories should have been something like: The Kardashians, Yolo, LOL Cats—you know what never mind that’s too depressing to contemplate.
