Default Journalist Bill Whitaker hosts "Jeopardy".

Watch Bill Whitaker talk about hosting ‘JEOPARDY!’

I may watch some of these episodes with Bill Whitaker hosting Jeopardy.

I have been skipping some of the fill-ins and watching most if not all of some of the other stand-ins for Alex Trebek.

Did not see any of Anderson Cooper's episodes but did catch almost all of Aaron Rodgers'.

We DVR them and watch one at a time.

So far Ken is #1 and producer #2.

I like the producer Mike the most so far. Think Ken Jennings is busy with other stuff. Who Is Mike Richards? Jeopardy's Executive Producer and Guest Host Has Serious Credentials.

My wife and I did not care for Whitaker at all. Took too long numerous times to say correct or not and thought he added nothing to the show.

Will see how he does next few days but so far we might stop watching for the rest of his time.

Do like the three day champion right now and hope she keeps winning.

I realize it was his first day, but I thought he sounded a little stilted, or almost like he was reading off of a script.

So far I like the producer the best, Anderson Cooper second, and Aaron Rogers third. I would be happy with any of those three.

100% agree. All 3 are great.

Like a couple others, he is a little slow to say whether a contestant's answer is correct or not. That short delay is noticeable and distracting.

I wondered if that short delay is intentional in order to build some drama. Other hosts have done it too. Either that, or they're not quick at picking up what the judges off screen are deciding. If it's a drama feature, I hope they drop it.

If he keeps doing it will stop watching. Not fair to the contestants.
