Not solely did he co-create and star in Schitt’s Creek together with his father Eugene Levy which took off in reputation all through the pandemic and went on to win all of the Emmy awards, however Levy was not too long ago the reply to a Jeopardy! query. Even although the contestant mispronounced his title (extra on that later), you already know you’ve “made it” whenever you’re a Jeopardy! reply.
The nice Jeopardy! host Alex Trebek handed away final yr and since then, there’s been a revolving door of visitor hosts. There have been, erm, surprising visitor hosts (like Aaron Rodgers) and there might be nice upcoming hosts (like LeVar Burton!), however this this week Anderson Cooper was internet hosting the present when the Schitt’s Creek class got here up.
During the “Supporting TV Characters” class, Anderson Cooper learn the $600 clue: “In 2020, this actor was all over the Emmy cast, including accepting his own for the supporting role of David Rose.”
This is true, Schitt’s Creek gained each comedy award on the 2020 Emmy’s (9, in complete) and Levy was always having to trot over to the rostrum to just accept one other award.

I’ll say, kudos to the Jeopardy! social staff for the on-par Twitter copy. “Ew, David” is correct. What self-respecting Schitt’s Creek fan doesn’t know the best way to pronounce our boy’s title? But it’s all good Kimberly, generally I overlook his title is Dan Levy, as a result of in my thoughts he’s at all times David Rose and likewise low-key my finest good friend, anyway the place had been we?
Cooper politely corrected her saying, “Dan Levy is correct,” whereas ensuring to emphasis that it’s pronounced “Leh-vee.”
Levy, at all times so humble, responded to the name-check by writing on Twitter, “Anderson Cooper with that gentle last name correction…also, [mind blown emoji].”

The finest a part of the entire thing is that on December 31, 2020, Cooper hosted the CNN New Year’s Eve present with good friend Andy Cohen. During the present they talked about issues they needed to go away behind in 2020 or throw within the “dumpster fire” of 2020 and one of many issues that Cooper needed to go away behind was “people telling me I need to watch Schitt’s Creek.”

“I mean, I know it’s a great show, I love everybody in it, they’re great actors and everything and I’m gonna watch it, I know, it’s on my list, I just don’t have time. Please stop telling me I need to watch it,” Cooper ranted.
Dan’s father Eugene Levy then tweeted on the CNN host, writing, “Hey @andersoncooper. I’m not one of those people telling you that you need to watch @SchittsCreek but you need to watch Schitt’s Creek.”
