Perhaps the weirdest week of episodes in ‘Jeopardy!’ history just concluded, but one constant remained — Matt Amodio kept winning.
The show’s new host departed the day after he taped the first five episodes of ‘Jeopardy’s’ 38th season, leading to what will likely stand as its most awkward week ever.
The rationale to justify excluding Meredith Vieira from the ‘Jeopardy!’ audition process makes little sense, on multiple levels.
In order to save America’s most-watched quiz show, Sony must fire Mike Richards as producer and restart the search for a new host from scratch.
After trying out 16 different individuals, ‘Jeopardy!’ executives decided to appoint their own Mike Richards and actress Mayim Bialik as the new permanent hosts.
The past six months of auditions only served to reinforce Trebek’s subtle mastery behind the lectern, and illustrate the big shoes “Jeopardy!’s” next host will have to fill.
Burton’s performance as host was somewhat uneven, pushing the boundaries of a deliberately low-key show and with two notable flubs.
Embracing the contestant interviews, Roberts relished the ‘softer’ side of her hosting duties in ways other guest emcees did not.
Between talking about the honor of hosting ‘Jeopardy!,’ praising Alex Trebek, and plugging their charities, the guest hosts seem to spend more time talking about themselves.
With guest hosts rotating almost as quickly as contestants, it will be hard for players to build up a sense of timing with the host, let alone any momentum.
The switch from Mayim Bialik to Savannah Guthrie behind the lectern resumed the parade of leftist news anchors as ‘Jeopardy!’ guest hosts.
Bialik’s combination of experience in front of the camera with a background in academia gave her an authoritative yet engaging personality as a host.
Cohen did a workmanlike job, but ‘Jeopardy!’ should have postponed the Tournament of Champions until the show’s eventual new permanent host is in place.
Whereas Trebek deftly glided across material, Whitaker exhibited a slightly stilted approach in his bid to become the new ‘Jeopardy!’ host.
One word generally described Anderson Cooper’s first week of guest-hosting ‘Jeopardy!’: Meh.
NFL quarterback Aaron Rodgers had an eventful and entertaining first week as the latest trial host of ‘Jeopardy!’
Between his New York-ish accent and his up-front demeanor, Oz came off brash — a shot of espresso instead of a more appropriate ‘Jeopardy!’ decaf.
Beyond the political controversy that went unspoken on-air, ‘Jeopardy!’ viewers saw the bubbly persona that made Couric a fixture on NBC’s ‘Today’ show.
Unfortunately, replacing a host who served for nearly 37 years brings attention to every little detail distinguishing Alex Trebek and his successors.
