The pair of hit TV shows have reupped their contracts, reports Variety. Both will carry on with their respective hosts (Wheel's Pat Sajak and Vanna White and Jeopardy's Alex Trebek) — adding another two years to their existing contracts.

President of Sales for CBS Television Distribution, Joe DiSalvo said the number one and two syndicated game shows "continue to hit prime-time size ratings every night," with Wheel bringing in "more than 30 million viewers per week" and Jeopardy "25 million."
