Default Jeopardy finally names new hosts!!

Mike Richards who was the show's executive producer, and certainly a fave frontrunner, has been named the next host of Jeopardy. But since there was a huge fan backlash that supposedly turned nasty, the show has also named Mayim Bialik (Big Bang Theory actress), who will also share some of the hosting duties such as College Championships. CONGRATS to them. I'm so pleased, are you?

They selected my favorite 2. Very happy that Ken will not be the host.

Was hoping for Ken Jennings but Mike Richards did well as sub host.

I think it was a mistake to leave the permanent position open for 8 months. No one is irreplaceable.

Whoa, I even forgot about Ken!!! I wanted him to host when Alex passed, but I'm very happy with the 2 choices they made.

They made two great picks. These were the best of the candidates IMHO.

Never watch the show but heard in another forum that the long time winner, is that Ken and Joe Buck were selected. Must have been a joke…

Is it true if those past player guest hosts can not play again in any championship series?

Check the credits tonight Ken Jennings was on them last night. I think he is replacing Mike Richards.

He is being brought in some sort of behind-the-scenes position, not as a host.

Well I'm confused from some of your posts. I look forward to seeing what is really going to happen.

Joe Buck has the best personality of the bunch. But he probably wouldn’t leave the sport world if asked.
