[ # ] What is, Jeopardy is going with two hosts?
August 11th, 2021 under Jeopardy, Mayim Bialik, Mila Kunis

Jeopardy has been on the search for a new host, and today they named the two people who will replace the late Alex Trebek. The daily host is Executive Producer Mike Richards, while the host of the primetime special National College Championship is going to Mayim Bialik.

“We are thrilled to begin the next chapter of America’s Favorite Quiz Show with Mike hosting our daily show and Mayim hosting new versions of Jeopardy!,” Ravi Ahuja, chairman of Global Television Studios and Corporate Development for Sony Pictures said to The Hollywood Reporter. “We took this decision incredibly seriously. A tremendous amount of work and deliberation has gone into it, perhaps more than has ever gone into the selection of hosts for a show – deservedly so because it’s Jeopardy! and we are following the incomparable Alex Trebek. A senior group of Sony Pictures Television executives pored over footage from every episode, reviewed research from multiple panels and focus groups, and got valuable input from our key partners and Jeopardy! viewers.”

Ahuja continued, “We knew early on that we wanted to divide the hosting responsibilities and it became very clear that Mike and Mayim were the undeniable choices. They were both at the top of our research and analysis. Mike is a unique talent, at ease behind the podium and a double threat as producer and host. Mayim has a wonderful energy, an innate sense of the game, and an authentic curiosity that naturally represents the Jeopardy! brand. We are excited to get to work with them both and are confident that they will carry on the legacy of this iconic show.”

What do you think of Richards as the new host? He reminds me of vanilla and Wonder Bread. I am not saying that because he is white, I am saying it because he is boring and forgettable.

Bialik is Bialik, you either like her, or you don’t. I don’t.
