    I found him easier to take the last two nights, both of which I watched last night so I could watch two one-hour shows Tuesday.

    My Roamio gave the Wednesday episode title as "Aaron Rodgers" and the episode summary explained who he was. All the other episodes recently have had the original air date as their title.

    Day one was super low key. Day two better. He is a real lover of jeopardy. You can tell. Turd Ferguson reference.

    SIGH-last night, if 3rd place had not risked anything, she would have won!

    A triple stumper in FJ - one of several here recently!

    I told her not to bet anything, but I guess she didn't hear me! :p

    I'm pretty sure the show is rated TV-G and he shouldn't have done that.

    Having said that, one episode some years ago was sort of a "Best of" and had as many naughty moments as I have ever seen in one episode and probably should have gotten a TV-PG. it did not.

    Huh? He was referencing an SNL character name from the celebrity jeopardy skits. It’s a name.

    I don't remember what it was, but there was one moment that IMHO finally beat it out, but for a long time, Ken Jennings of all people said the raciest thing on Jeopardy.. and I'm not going to look it up, so I might not be exactly correct.. but from memory..

    Alex: This garden implement can mean a loose woman.
    Ken: What is a hoe? ('ho')
    WRONG
    (the correct one was "what is a rake")
    and one of the other contestants was IIRC a pastor or a priest, and they said they would have said the same thing (hoe).

    oh, and they finally referenced this on The Chase too.

    Close...

    Ken: "I'll take Tool Time for $200."
    Alex Trebek: "This term for a gardening implement can also mean an immoral pleasure seeker."
    Ken: "What is a hoe?"
    Alex: "No." *audience cracks up* "Whoa. Whooooaaa. They teach you that in Utah schools?"
    Other guy: "What is a rake?"
    Alex: "Correct, select again."

    Someone also mentioned that sitcom that won so many awards but that was the wrong response.

    Does anyone else now think less of LeVar Burton because of the degree to which he's shamelessly and publicly campaigning for this thing? It really rubs me the wrong way.

    I've seem him retweet a couple of things that others have posted. Has he done more than that?

    I am...quite surprised, yes. Unless it means he’s already been selected to do so, and is just drumming up interest ahead of the announcement?

    I can't imagine they'll just announce someone randomly without them having done one of these stints as a guest host. That would just be super weird decision making by the producers.

    I think the guest hosts are to fill the gap, not tryouts for the position.

    I don't think they're "tryouts" for most of the guests. But just like Ken Jennings and Mike Richards did guest stints and are at/near the top of the list for permanent hosts, I would be surprised if they didn't do the same for anyone else being seriously considered.

    There's been lots of speculation, especially on social media, but that's all it's been so far. I don't think there's been any official word from Sony on who is being considered. I wouldn't expect an announcement until the show goes on hiatus this summer.

    I think the search for the next host is ongoing. The reason for the guest hosts is to provide for show continuity while it happens. I mean, in normal times they'd probably suspend taping and air old episodes, but these aren't normal times. It's probably convenient they can get guest hosts in at the same time.

    I'm thinking there's a good chunk of the population that's just happy there's one thing they can still count on - Jeopardy! will be on right after Wheel of Fortune, and in the topsy-turvy world we're in right now, it's a reliable anchor fo life.

    Actually, in some markets, it's the other way round and Jeopardy! is first! My FiL in Florida often would comment on what happened in the show before it aired here in GA.

    As far as a new permanent host is concerned, none will be good enough - merely adequate - because they're NOT ALEX!
