George introduced a story the team has been covering over the past week regarding Amy Schneider’s history-making streak on Jeopardy.

He then cut to TJ, who was helming the story in the studio while describing her run, and introduced him by cheekily saying: “TJ is on our Jeopardy beat. Hey TJ!”

As his co-hosts started to chuckle, TJ simply shot him a slightly annoyed look and retorted: “Hey, don’t start with me George,” which left everyone in hysterics.

The dig was a reference to a running joke the two had about how often they’d covered Jeopardy-related stories on the show.

They even had another exchange about it during a segment of last week’s GMA while introducing the previous story about Amy’s run.

Before beginning his story, TJ started off by saying: “You all might remember, George, you said to me here on the air not long ago ‘TJ, did you ever imagine that Jeopardy would be a news beat that you would cover?'”

The comment had many in the studio laughing, including George, who could just look on and hilariously respond with: “You had a good year of it!”

TJ then went on to explain that it was because there was a huge influx of stories around the show over the past year, including the search for a new host and several winning streaks being made.
