Matt Lauer, game show host?

According to a new report, it could happen — in a few years.

With Alex Trebek’s “Jeopardy” contract to end in 2016, the “Today Show” host reportedly tops the list of possible replacements.

Lauer’s morning show contract goes through 2015, potentially making him available for the gig.

He may have some competition, however, as Anderson Cooper is also a potential contender, according to the New York Post.

Nothing is confirmed at this point, and much could change in the years ahead.

Who would you like to see replace Trebek?
