I was hoping they would just go ahead and name Mayim Bialik, since she was already named for the College championship. Guess not.

I didn't like her. I haven't followed her like a lot of my friends have on her nerd series. I didn't like how she dressed....( I know, right??) No one on Jeopardy is up to date as dressers....One host anchor was...I really loved Robin...whatshername. She dressed very well and was so quick and warm too.

Alex Trebek reruns were on ....what's that about???? I want to see that kid from Medina, Ohio win a million bucks and buy himself a nice house............

Default Jeopardy - Mike's already out

Well Mike Richard's sure didn't last long. I wonder what he said 30 years ago?

we have not watched Jeopardy since Alex's passing. And probably now, will not start. Can only imagine the backstage happenings the last week or so.... I would bet good $$$ that the 'permanent new host' will pass all of the P.C. background tests. If that is the case, J-watching is once again out. The many months 'testing' of the try-out hosts was unwatchable for us. Now, the search for a pristine, non-controversial, and no doubt...the correct 'class' continues... nope.

Totally agree. I thought she was perfect for the job.

You’re thinking of Robin Roberts. I liked her, too. Who knows what the network is going to do? Maybe go back to guest hosts for awhile?

Well…… lol….. there’s an entire wardrobe department that dresses the hosts. She doesn’t pick her wardrobe. Also, i never watched that series either but remember her from her own series called Blossom in the early 90’s.

He was a great pitcher some years back. Hope he is up to it.
This new guy who had to quit didn't follow the leadership of the last few Supreme Court justices .ratings would be sky high on the first few shows as he apologizes for something he did in the past.

Apparently he said some rather upsetting things in a podcast he used to do.

One would have thought they would have very carefully vetted Mike Richards before giving him the job.

Now they have to have him as host for about a weeks worth of shows he already hosted and than back to more guest hosts.

Don’t know but back then it probably wouldn’t have offended anyone; nowadays crybabies are offended by any little thing….

Same here. Not only was The Big Bang Theory a great show, but she is actually one of those brilliant "nerds" - in real life.

Lots of decent people "back then" were offended by disparaging remarks toward Jews, women & Asians (which Richards did). I'm personally very pleased that it's not as acceptable now, as it used to be. At least he's apologized, unlike so many others.

I agree.

Also, I really don't understand how such a high-profile position, with that much money on the line and they didn't vet him better. It sometimes amazes me how stupid people are,
