NUMBER 5 - "JEOPARDY" HOST CLAIMS GUINESS RECORD
Move over Bob Barker! Alex Trebek is Guinness' new record holder for most game shows hosted by the same presenter. The "Jeopardy" host has been the show's leading man almost 7,000 times. According to Guinness, he's never had a sick day. The only time Trebek wasn't on the show was in 1997 for April Fool's Day. He and "Wheel of Fortune" host Pat Sajack switched places. Trebek has been hosting "Jeopardy" since 1984.

NUMBER 4 - DR. OZ TO TESTIFY AT SENATE HEARING
Doctor Oz goes to Washington. Mehmet Oz, the host of "The Dr. Oz Show," is among the witnesses in a senate hearing today, focused on false and deceptive advertising for weight loss products. The Federal Trade Commission is suing Pure Green Coffee, a company based in Florida. It's accused of promoting bogus weight-loss claims and fake news sites to market its supplement. The suit says the company was promoted on "The Dr. Oz Show."

NUMBER 3 - GM ISSUES ANOTHER RECALL
General Motors is recalling another three million vehicles over an ignition switch issue linked to eight crashes and six injuries. G.M. says this newest recall relates to a different ignition switch problem from the one linked to previous recalls. The new recall affects some Chevrolet, Cadillac and Buick models from 2000 through 2014. The total number of recalled G.M. vehicles this year now stands at more than 20 million.

NUMBER 2 - IRAQ CRISIS
President Obama met with the White House National Security Council late Monday to discuss the situation in Iraq. Militants from the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria, also known as ISIS are carrying out an offensive that has taken large sections of northern iraq out of government hands. A senior administration official says the president has not yet made a decision regarding a military strike against those militants.

NUMBER 1 - DEADLY NEBRASKA TORNADOES
At least two people have died and as many as 15 more are in critical condition after multiple tornadoes swept through northeast Nebraska. One of those killed died when a tornado picked up a car and dropped it. A hospital spokeswoman says they're expecting "many more" patients. It's unclear how many tornadoes touched down, but at least two occurred side-by-side at the same time. Nebraska's governor issued a state of emergency, putting the National Guard on standby.
