Young Sheldon is coming to an end on May 16th, and it is going out with a big bang. As in, The Big Bang Theory’s Jim Parsons and Mayim Bialik will guest star as Old Sheldon and Amy Farrah Fowler.

This is the first time they have played their characters on camera since the TBBT finale in 2019.

And what they will be doing on this season finale is a mystery. And I can’t wait to see what happens in two months.


What is, Mayim Bialik is out of Jeopardy

Mayim Bialik woke up excited to go to the Daytime Emmys because she was nominated for being a host of Jeopardy, but she got some bad news before she hit the red carpet.

“As the holiday break begins in Hollywood, I have some Jeopardy! news,” she wrote. “Sony has informed me that I will no longer be hosting the syndicated version of Jeopardy! I am incredibly honored to have been nominated for a primetime Emmy for hosting this year and I am deeply grateful for the opportunity to have been a part of the Jeopardy! family.

“For all of you who have supported me through this incredible journey and to the fans, contestants, writers, staff and crew of America’s Favorite Quiz Show, thank you.”

The actress opted not to work on the game show while both strikes were going on, even though she was cleared to do so after the WGA strike ended.

Now that the strikes are over, she was ready to go back to work. But I think people realized that Ken Jennings is a much better host and so much more likable than she is.

Seriously, does Jeopardy need two hosts? I don’t think so, and it appears neither did Sony.

Don’t worry about Bialik. She will be fine. She gets Big Bang Theory residual money.

UPDATE: Jeopardy responded to Bialik’s firing. To see what the game show said, then click here!


What is, is Mayim Bialik out of Jeopardy?

I don’t know about you, but I don’t know anyone who likes Mayim Bialik as a host on Jeopardy. And now we know that she will not be back hosting Celebrity Jeopardy on ABC. Instead, Ken Jennings is taking over the role.

So, was the actress fired? “She wasn’t fired,” an insider told The Messenger. “She’s choosing to stand with her union, and because of that, she was told it is unlikely she will return for the rest of the year, even if the strike is resolved before then.”

So what about the daily show? She is hoping to split duties with Jennings again when the strikes are over. But will they want her? We know we don’t.


Call Me Kat’s 9 lives are over on Fox

Next week is the upfronts, and the broadcast television networks are making their decisions on which bubble shows will be back next season.

Today we found out that Call Me Kat which starred Mayim Bialik, Swoosie Kurtz, the late Leslie Jordan, Kyla Pratt, Julian Gant, and Cheyenne Jackson, will not be back for a fourth season.

“We are very proud of Call Me Kat,” a Fox rep told TVLine. “But, unfortunately, the audience response to it was not as strong as we had hoped. We are thankful for our partnership with Warner Bros. Television, That’s Wonderful Productions, Sad Clown Productions, BBC Studios, Mayim Bialik, Jim Parsons and the entire cast and crew for their work and dedication to Call Me Kat.”

I think they would’ve gotten another season if they featured the cats more. But since they didn’t, Jeopardy viewers might be getting more Bialik next season.


What is, Jeopardy and Wheel of Fortune picked up for 5 more years?

Jeopardy and Wheel of Fortune are the top two shows in syndication, and their contracts are up at the end of the season. Therefore, it makes sense that CBS Media Ventures wants to keep them around for a while. So they picked up both game shows for five more seasons.

While the series will be around until 2028, the press release does not mention if the talent will be. Pat Sajak, 76, has hinted he has wants to retire, but will he? And I can’t see Vanna White going anywhere because what woman doesn’t want to be a human Barbie doll and wear all of those beautiful gowns? When it comes to Jeopardy, I have no idea what they will newbies Ken Jennings and Mayim Bialik. They have only been hosting for two years, as compared to Sajak and White, who have been doing the job for 40 years and counting.
