I'm still holding out for Eddie Timanus as host, even though they'd have to feed him the questions (and a small percentage of the answers) through a headset every question

Watching a weekend re-run with Alex. Reminded of how he always condescendingly says "Good for you!" after a lame contestant story.

I'm sure the format/show will continue but there is no replacing the viewing enjoyment that was Alex

Let's be real though, nobody tuned in to Jeopardy for Alex. You watch Jeopardy to test your knowledge, 'play' against the people you're watching with, etc. He was a staple of the show but nobody who enjoys Jeopardy is just going to stop watching.

Based on his twitter, I thought he'd have more charisma as host but he was kinda flat. Maybe it's something he would grow into...

I'm a few episodes behind, but I watched Jennings' first show. Pretty good for his first.

But his voice is not ideal. Not vocal fry, but he's more nasal-y. Trebek had a good, solid voice.

Wow I really like this Mike Richards guy as a host.

In any case, he's unlikely to be the permanent host because he's already the executive producer.

Katie Couric was not credible as host. Ken Jennings and Mike Richards did a much better job.

According to an article in the LA Times in January Mike Richards is actually one of the favorites. Though it is one of the most desirable jobs in Hollywood right now.

Ken was a decent guest host but his nasally voice annoyed my wife

Mike got better each show and his voice is slightly better.

Katie Couric's first show was actually pretty good, but I don't care for her personally and she is pretty politically divisive even more so than Ken.

She had several patronizing remarks about the intelligence of the contestants. We already know they're relatively smart. This is Jeopardy.

Mike Richards was good, but I grew tired of his identical closing remark quoting Alex each night. It's a nice aspiration, but the Jeopardy audience isn't the demographic that most needs to to hear and heed those words.

Dr. Oz? Are you serious?

LOL at Amal's furious buzzer technique tonight.

Especially on the clue about Dev Patel (answered by some white guy), and the final clue of Double Jeopardy.

^^^^^^^
Who’s the consensus? Jennings didn’t have the gravitas I hoped but maybe he could grow.

Levar Barton is interesting but he hasn’t been tapped as a guest host yet

Is jeopardy just getting a bunch of really terrible hosts and then going to surprise hire an actual good one?

Because these guests hosts ain't it, chief.
