Mayim Bialik, Ken Jennings to Host ‘Jeopardy’ Through 2021 After Mike Richards’ Exit

....Mayim Bialik and Ken Jennings will host the remaining episodes of “Jeopardy” for the rest of the year, Variety has confirmed. However, the search for a final, permanent host is still ongoing.

Bialik will take over hosting duties for the first few weeks, starting September 20 and running through November 5. She and Jennings will then trade off as their schedules allow. The two of them will tape enough episodes to get “Jeopardy” through the end of the year.

The news comes after the short-lived hosting tenure of former “Jeopardy” executive producer Mike Richards, who was named host, then stepped down nine days later after insensitive comments he made on a past podcast resurfaced, along with two previous discrimination lawsuits from his time on “The Price Is Right.” Eleven days later, Richards was fired from the show, and the few episodes he filmed during that brief timespan began airing this week.

Alongside the initial announcement that Richards would be “Jeopardy” host, Bialik was also named as the host of the show’s primetime specials and spinoff series. She was later recruited once again to fill in as the daytime “Jeopardy” host after Richards exited. Michael Davies, executive producer on “Who Wants to Be a Millionaire?” took over interim production duties from Richards, who was also fired from “Wheel of Fortune.”

After legendary host Alex Trebek died on November 8, 2020, “Jeopardy” filled in the main emcee duties with a series of guest hosts, which included Bialik, Jennings and Richards. Other guest hosts included LeVar Burton, Katie Couric, Robin Roberts, George Stephanopoulos, Anderson Cooper, Buzzy Cohen, David Faber, Aaron Rodgers, Savannah Guthrie, Dr. Sanjay Gupta, Bill Whitaker, Joe Buck and Dr. Mehmet Oz.



for rest of the calendar..........year.......?!

The way they have screwed this up, I'm just glad the host isn't Pat Sajak with Vanna White pointing at the clues
