Jeopardy!'S Alex Trebek Sets Guinness World Record For Most Game Show Episodes Hosted!

Name a "Jeopardy" producer who now holds three Guinness world records.

Who is Harry Friedman?

Friedman was honored by the organization as he set the new record for most game show episodes produced, with 11,128 as of March 31.

"The moment means a lot, especially when I look at this certificate and it has an actual number on it of 11,128," Friedman said in a video of his ceremony. "And that was as of March 31, so now it's even higher. And we'll keep going, at least for a while longer."

Friedman also holds the world record for most Emmy nominations for a game show with 37. He has won 11 Emmys in his career, which is also a world record.

Friedman has worked on "Jeopardy" since 1997. He has also worked on hit game shows such as "Wheel of Fortune" and "Hollywood Squares."

Alex Trebek, host of the "Jeopardy!" quiz show, speaks to an audience of primarily media about an upcoming "Jeopardy!" show featuring an IBM computer called "Watson" in Yorktown Heights, N.Y., Thursday, Jan. 13, 2011. It's the size of 10 refrigerators, and it swallows encyclopedias whole, but an IBM computer was lacking one thing it needed to battle the greatest champions from the "Jeopardy!" quiz TV show - it couldn't hit a buzzer. But that's been fixed, and on Thursday the hardware and software system named Watson played a competitive practice round against two champions. A "Jeopardy!" show featuring the computer will air in mid-February, 2011. (AP Photo/Seth Wenig)
