    In my market (Houston), they're not even on the same channel. J! airs at 11:30am on the ABC affiliate, and WoF at 6:30pm on the CBS affiliate.

    For me it's the other way around though I only watch the one.

    He didn't start that. It was started by someone named Joshua Sanders.

    My bad. He didn't start it but he's sharing a link and is kind of promoting it

    I don't care what the facts are. Jennings and Richards both want it too, but you don't see them being uppity about it.

    I listened for a while but got distracted, did she have a guess for permanent host?

    In a conversation about three individuals, I'm not sure I'd ever choose to use the term uppity to refer to the one who's black...

    I feel like most anyone would do that -- he's acknowledging his fans.

    Let me hang a lantern on it.

    We have three individuals, each making no bones about the fact they want the job, but for two of them that's just fine & dandy and only one is being raked over the coals (not so much here but all over; for example accused of starting a petition and shamelessly and publicly campaigning for this thing). Let's just hang the word on it so we can see what's going on.

    No, she doesn't make any predictions. But I think she said Ken Jennings has been presumed as the front-runner since before Alex died. She did talk about her interview with Aaron Rodgers and being surprised about how much he actually wanted the job (I figured that wouldn't even be a possibility due to his "day job.")

    It's interesting, because LeVar Burton was among the top contenders for a replacement host - along with Ken Jennings and a few others. Yet he's not on the guest host list.

    I don't blame him. He was in top 3 or top 5 potential replacement hosts, and the rest of them are on the schedule. Of course, a perfectly innocent reason might be he has a crappy agent or Sony blackballed his agent...

    I think Lavar would be an excellent host. I can't think of a specific example, but I feel like he has hosted or narrated a bunch of PBS type shows. Maybe he's done all the other projects that interest him and wants to settle down?

    I do worry that a bunch of the potential candidates (as suggested by the public) are getting up there in age. Levar is 64, which is the age Johnny Carson was when he retired IIRC. I don't think many people would want to hang around until 80 like Alex did.

    The Levar Burton thing brings up an interesting issue. Not a single one of the guest hosts so far has been black, and only one of the announced ones going forward is (Bill Whitaker from 60 Minutes).

    I'm way behind in my recordings again, but finally got into the Mike Richards episodes. He seemed a little bit stiff at first, but he's pretty good. I think it was that Reliable Sources episode where I found it out, but I hadn't realized he actually has hosted things before.. since they announced him as executive producer, I thought he was just a behind the scenes guy.

    It's interesting to see the different guest hosts' personalities in adding comments after a wrong answer or more info, etc.. I can't think of specific examples, but Mike said a few things that were interesting. I was already used to Ken's personality.

    Interesting, but not surprising, I guess. He's 37, so so the number of years he has remaining as quarterback are pretty limited.

    In other host campaign news, Mark L. Walberg - of "The Price is Right LIVE" touring theater show, “Antiques Roadshow” and “Temptation Island” - has tweeted that he wants into the mix.



    I liked him as host of “Russian Roulette" but he wouldn't be my first choice here.

    Aaron Rodgers doesn't have the personality to host.

    I can't say I'd be comfortable with LeVar Burton but I'd have to see him. He has such a sophisticated style of acting that doesn't seem like it would be right for hosting this show. People complained before Dr. Oz that they didn't like eh idea of him saying how much he knows. It's sort of like that.
