‘Jeopardy!’ fans in an uproar after it’s revealed Mayim Bialik will host game show throughout summer

Jeopardy! recently its upcoming host schedule, and once again fans are not happy about it.

Producer Sarah Foss shared the news on Monday’s episode of the “Inside Jeopardy!” podcast.

“Ken Jennings will be back on March 10, and then he will continue the rest of his syndicated run, which will take us through April 28,” Foss said. “Then Mayim [Bialik] will take over on May 1, and she’ll take us all the way through the summer.”

Currently, Bialik is hosting the game show’s High School Reunion Tournament.

Jennings and Bialik have served as rotating hosts for Jeopardy! after taking over the role from former executive producer Mike Richards.

So many weren’t pleased when it was announced Bialik would continue her hosting duties after Jennings returned for a quick stint before he was off again until September.


Angry fans did not hold back.

“Can we for the love of god just have Mayim host Celebrity Jeopardy! One of the contestants even admitted that her pacing and the way she reads the clues is just plain bad. There’s literally no reason why she should be hosting syndicated J!” one fan wrote.

Another viewer questioned the show’s motive for keeping two hosts.

“Why are they so hellbent on keeping Mayim on the regular syndicated show?? She has absolutely no chemistry whatsoever with regular contestants.”

“Great! I’ll put it in my calendar for when I can resume watching @Jeopardy again,” someone else wrote.

Are viewers getting heated for nothing or do you think Ken Jennings should host Jeopardy! more often over the summer?
