Tuesday was the first scheduled production day at the game show since the announcement, and Trebek was there, making sure contestants answered in the form of a question.

A spokeswoman for the show confirmed his participation in the day's taping.

"Jeopardy!" usually tapes just two days a week - multiple episodes of the show are produced on a single day.

When Trebek told the world about his cancer diagnosis, he promised that he would keep working.

Last fall, he extended his contract through 2022.
