The only one I needed to watch was Ken. He was as great as I knew he would be!
Mike Richard's, Dr. Oz, Ken Jennings, A. Rogers - in that order. Anxious to see the rest, but any of those 4 would be fine replacements for Alex - he would be pleased.
Had a bad taste in my mouth when Dr. Oz was announced. Tried to give him a chance but I wasn't impressed. I find Ken Jennings too cocky, although he wasn't as bad as I expected. Mike Richards did a good job but not sure if he's the best fit permanently and, I understand, he doesn't want it. Katie Couric did well... nice change, but too conversational. We didn't get through as many questions. Let's keep looking.
KEN JENNINGS is the best by far. Dr. OZ has his own show already, Mike Richards doesn't want to be in front of the cameras, even though he did a good job. Katie Couric was too slow after the contestants answered, with a long pause and made viewers think the answer was wrong like she has to be prompted to say 'correct'. BRING KEN BACK!!!!!!
I thought Oz was great very sharp. Could not stand Couric and we don’t need a lib out there promoting their agenda. We never knew Trebek’spolitical persuasion and that is what we need. Every show has been so political , of course, ABCis still promoting BLM, which is just a fascist group trying to ruin our country, nothing to do with Black lives. Get someone with no political agenda so I can continue watching please. I thought the producer was good also. Ken Jennings, of course, has let his politics be well known.
I think Mike Richards did a fantastic job. Ken was ok, but lacked the personality and chrisma of Mike. Let's see the other candidates
I can't stand oz or curic, she talks like a communist,
, talking about reprogramming peoples minds in an interview. I havent watched jeopardy since curic started. I don't know what the last two will be like but I'll let you know !!
Mike Richard was the best, second is Katie c.
Others are boring.
So far Dr Oz has been the best. He has stage presence and whit Both impeccable traits. He is comfortable on stage and connects with the contestants. I love him. He seems to be the most like Alex... very smart and does the different language accents. Not as good as Alex but tolerable and for sure would likely improve over time. None of the other hosts had the IT factor and were very rote no personality and just said things like. CORRECT. THATS RIGHT. NO. with no other commentary. Personality-less. . But no personality or whit. As a comparison to a reporter I found them to be reading rather than reporting in their own style. I also have an affection for Ken Jennings because of his history on the show. He was better than the others. Second to Dr Oz
I really liked Ken Jennings. He was respectful toward Alex, quick witted like Alex, soft admiration toward all contestants similar to Alex, and extremely knowledgeable and brilliant like Alex. Who’s left. None compares to Alex except Ken. He is my only pick. Perfect replacement for Alex
So far Mike Richards and Ken Jennings have been the best. They were both professional, intelligent ,focused ,and same style and statue as Alex.
I would like to see Ken Jennings be the permanent host. Other than being highly intelligent I like his sense of humor and one in one with the contestants. Last but not least his personal touch about Alex at the end of the show.
Dr Oz was awful, the others just didn’t seem to fit the part.
Mike Richards is my top choice followed by Dr. Oz. Ken Jennings would be last choice...have never cared for his personality or the sound of his voice.
Ken Jennings, hands down!
I am eager to see Makim and how she does. She is smart and has a good voice. I don't know how to spell her name, sorry. I like Ken Jennings. Oz did a good job, but I’d prefer someone else. Katie was too slow and measured. The producer was ok.
Mike Richards was the worst. Although I am not a Katie Couric fan, she surprised me. I am 78 years old and have been watching longer than most of you. At this point, you should pick Ken Jennings, but am hoping there will be some better choices in the future weeks.
Dr. Oz was great and looked better than I had ever seen him. ????
Katie Couric was Also good. Second choice.
Ken Jennings, Katie Couric and Mike Richards.
Dr. Who? ????
I liked both Ken Jennings and Mike Richards. Oz was good, but Couric was bad. Need to have non political host.
I love Dr. Oz. But he has a big job the way it is. His show and surgeries.
I will only watch if Ken Jennings gets the job.
This should not be political..
Ken Jennings is our Family's Favorite
Ken Jennings is by far the best choice!
Ken Jennings is my favorite so far and I don’t see
Anyone on the list that would be better than him!
Ken Jennings - he really put Jeopardy “on the map” with his historic run and he won against other great champions. Jeopardy is really about the contestants knowledge not the personality of the person asking the questions!
Did NOT watch any of Oz
Ken Jennings should be full time host. He’s our very best!
Dr Oz is the best host so far. Ken Jennings too boring and scared looking. Couric is a big no. The producer was very good maybe even better then Oz
The only hos
I think Pete Carroll..Seahawk coach should be guest host
He looks a lot like Alex
Ken Jennings was the best. He was relaxed and would be a great permanent host. Dr. Oz was my second choice , Katie tried way to hard and made us uncomfortable watching our nightly show.
I found Mike Richards to be loud, patronizing much like a slick phony salesman and just trying too hard.
Katie Couric reminded me of an elementary school teacher-not Jeopardy material.
Not a fan of Oz because of his tendency to tout questionable and unresearched products. Though not bad as a host, I don't trust him because of those aforementioned tendencies.
Though I didn't care for him as a contestant, so far, Ken Jennings has been the best host. He appears to be relaxed, speaks softly so as not to make a spectacle of himself and he's a pretty smart guy. #1 to date
I'd like to see the others before I decide. Actually, I'd like to see a longer list with more women.
I found Dr. Oz annoying. Doesn’t have a good voice for the work. Katie Couric did a decent job and after a tentative start I warmed up to her. Ken Jennings has been far best, knows his stuff, comes across as kind and caring, good voice. Can’t believe anyone else will surpass him!
In my opinion my choices so far would be:
I really didn't like Katie (too fake), Dr. Oz(thinks he is all that). Not looking forward to Aaron Rodgers but I will give him a chance just like the rest.
Nobody can ever replace Alex!????????????
Doctor Oz was the best so far K.Jennings has no character Katie curic was ok the producer was passable I think Pat sanjak should get the job with his sense of humor!!
Dr. Oz did great and should host Jeopardy over the others, to date. He has that "personality" voice too. I liked him best so far!
Dr. Oz did great and should host Jeopardy over the others, to date. He has that "personality" voice too. I liked I'm best so far!
Dr. Oz did an extremely good job hosting Jeopardy. He's smart and obviously comfortable in front of a camera, despite all the controversy over some of his opinions. I believe his intend is to offer options, and let an intelligent audience make its own decisions on hot topics. Plus I was swayed by the fact that Alex Tribeck and Dr. Oz were friends, which I think makes quite a statement. I would enjoy Jeopardy if permanent host.
Ken Jennings earned the spot! Look at all the comments! You could feel his connection not only being the host of the show but to Alex and the Jeopardy Family as well!
Ken Jennings we all know, love and admire; however, based SOLELY on performance, Dr Oz, a newcomer to the Jeopardy scene, did an amazing job! His poise and delivery, without a hint of superiority, reminded me most of Alex Trebek, of those seen so far.
So far, all of these fill-in hosts have been good:
Jennings- folksy good
Exec. Producer-game show host good
If Anderson Cooper is still one of the planned future try-outs, it will be fun. He himself admits that he's not intellectual or sophisticated, despite his family pedigree.
Ken Jennings for permanent Jeopardy Host. He earned his way on to the scene, the others are tv personalities that couldn’t answer those questions on a bet. Give it to the man who earned the spot.
KenJennings is the obvious choice. Not only was he good at hosting but Alec himself wanted him. Go Ken!!!
Mike Richards was the most professional & I loved him. He's my 1st choice. Ken Jennings is my 2nd choice. If anyone else gets it I won't be watching the show anymore. Yay for Mike Richards!!!
Is the host for jeopardy
The spectators relate to Ken, he’s one of us. Ken Jennings is our host.
I have found all of the guest moderators very competent. They all reflect that they host the show, but the real stars are the contestants. I would be equally happy if a permanent moderator were selected or if the show continued with guest moderators. The one thing to remember: who the real stars of the show are!
It absolutely should be Ken Jennings.
Ken Jennings should be the next host of Jeopardy. He has such a long connection with the game and Alex Trebek. It is only natural that he should carry the torch.
Jennings should be host ..he did a great job.. Thank you...we watch the show every night.
Dr. Oz and Katie Couric were not Jeopardy host material.
Ken Jennings and Mike Richards were very good as Jeopardy hosts.
I feel that given some time, Ken Jennings could do the job very well.
I’ve loved Jeopardy since I was a child with Art Fleming and have been a faithful follower. I hate that it has become political. Alex was the most sincere “game show” host and canNOT be replaced so stop trying! Focus on who can do the best job for the show and leave their political views at the door. Ken is definitely the front runner to host, unfortunately he already has a gig on another show. I liked Mike Richards, but I think he’s got a few irons in the fire already and may be stretching it too thin—he would be good. Coric and Oz ????????????????
Mike Richards is by far the best person to become the new Jeopardy host. HE WAS GREAT!!!!!!
All of them were good guest hosts In general but Ken had enthusiasm, knowledge of how the show works, and reminded me of Alex the most. The others are famous in their own rights and are either on other shows or have their own shows. I would 100% watch if Ken hosted. Jeopardy would not be a regularly watched show for me if any of the others were the host.
Ken Jennings is the best person for the hosting position!! He has a better understand of what the show is all about.
Hosts have shown quality in a declining order
We started with proponents of the show legendary on their own right and only two months in we have charlatans hijacking the lecturn to pedal products, leech attention, and launder money into their private charities. Mr. Oz was an espically low blow to Trebek's legacy. I refuse to allow the distinction of "doctor" because he cares for the hippocratic oath as much as he does for children in our public school system.
Couric wasn't much better - the second she started to plug her podcast was the second I turned off my screen and ventured off on a journey to find my lost patience.
I am not thilled with the current roster to say the least, but if they wish to capture lighting in the bottle as they did with Alex then they should reexamine how he came to be.
Up until he took that seminal first step on stage, Alex was just someone who worked production - someone you maybe have only recognized for his few substitute roles in the past. He wasn't a football player, media mogul, a snake oil salesman, or any other kind of celebrity of waning fame desperate for another fix of relevance. He was just Alex. It was through his own charm and hard work that he and the site became one; a monument to the curious spirit of mankind and testament of the American dream.
The position of permanent host will need to be one of commitment and distinction. They will not only need to BE Jeopardy, but also have a slate clean enough to fit such a title and the character worthy of it.
Ken is the closest we have so far.
Ken Jennings has the best personality for Jeopardy. He understands the show and is fun to watch.
Dr. Oz did a much better job than I expected. He has his own show though. Love Katie in real life, to cheery for hosting job. Didn’t care for Mike, could tell he is a behind the scenes guy. Ken might be a newbie, but he is my choice. Rogers isn’t real nice, just ask his family. Won’t watch his stint.
I love Katie Couric
Dr. OZ was better than Couric. Did not watch her, because of her nasty comments on Republicans.
Ken Jennings is the only one thus far to live up to Alex's genuinely friendly, modest style that always places the contestants as the stars of the show. Mike Richards came across as a loud, smooth talking snake oil salesman that drew the attention to himself. He may be a genuinely nice guy, but he came across as anything but genuine. Couric and Oz did fine presenting the material, but neither have pleasant voices or demeanors to listen to. Only Ken Jennings hits all the right notes, especially the genuine joy that you can see in his eyes and hear in his voice.
Better than Couric
My least favorite ???? is Katie Couric. I didn’t watch after her first appearance. Resume watching with Dr Oz. I think I’d rank:
Katie Couric I wouldn’t even rank. People may like her but she’s too perky and acts surprised when the contestants were correct, almost sounded condescending
Bring mike Richards back!!!! He was great. He has the personality along with rapport with the contestants. He was the best
Ken Jennings should be the host. He's excellent and very personable! Bring him back and forget everyone else.
I think Dr.Oz did an excellent job on Jeopardy. When I'm watching the show, I dont think about his opinions otherwise. I'm just watching and enjoying the show. I don't think about the contestants opinions on things otherwise, either. Boy, that would really ruin the show. And I think people being so petty about Trebeck's replacement risk ruining the show. Another example of the saintly vocal minority deciding for everyone else.
I don't care what products he pushed before his host duties. I thought he did an excellent job of
handling the contestants, introducing the topics & questions and moving the show st a faster pace, which I think the show needed.
Love Doctor Oz !!
Professional and comfortable as the shows host!
Permanent for me
I vote for Mike or Ken! Either one would be a good choice.
YES to Ken Jennings and second is Mike Richards
NO to Katie Couric and Dr Oz
The rest of the guest hosts should be eliminated before they even begin.
If Dr Oz is picked as the permanent host in I will no longer watch the show.
The anti-Oz comments are based on politics and personal dislike. When it comes to his actual hosting he did quite well. I disagree with much of his medical stances, but an unbiased viewer would have to acknowledge he looked comfortable, professional, and engaging.
As for permanent host, I like having someone who knows what it is like to be there, so I vote Jennings on 1 condition. As much as I worship trebek, Ken has to stop saying 'and thank you Alex' every single show. It is a bit much to make that permanent. And Richards' lengthy repetitive diatribe was even worse.
No Jennings. Boring
Dr. Oz has a history of touting unproven cures. He should be disbarred. None of the front line workers watched him or Couric. Why are you ruining Alex's legacy with these kooks?! Both shouldn't even be on TV. No wonder Jeopardy's ratings are down. Get your act together Jeopardy, for the sake of Alex! Ken or your producer will be the final choices. Forget all the others in your line up!
Yes to Mike Richard's. Definitely NO to KenJen. Lacking in personality, is too involved in other shows, and seems "full of himself." Won't watch if Jennings is selected.
Ken Jennings did a wonderful job, but so did Mike Richards. Both had been watching Alex Trebek for years and knew how things should go. Katie Couric just talked down to the contestants and it was like what do you mean you don’t know that answer. Dr. Oz Has been much better than I thought he would be. I didn’t say I wanted him full-time, but he has been much better than I had thought. I could deal with him if I had to, but I do not want Katie Couric.
Oz is a snake oil sales shuckster, a total rat. And he's not fun to watch, in fact he's disturbing. EWWWW! Get him off there. He doesn't need it either, he's already raked in all the big bucks he needs. Don't inflict him on us.
Ken Jennings is the one that should be hosting Jeopardy. My husband and I have watched Jeopardy together many years. We have not watched any of Jeopardy sinced Dr. Oz has been host. We loved Alex he was a great host for Jeopardy. I think he would like Ken Jennings to be the host and what I have read on reviews everybody else would like Kim Jennings also.
I dont follow Dr. Oz, not do I agree with his science or politics...I really didn't want to like him. Other than his odd movie gangster-like accent he was actually an easy to watch/listen to, congenial and engaging host.
I'm waiting for Bill Whitaker.
Oz is a Trump lackey and promotes only himself. While health care providers have sacrificed themselves, Oz has done nothing to help people suffering from the pandemic. He is not deserving of Alex’s place. Get Ken back.
Ken Jennings has been the best host and should be the permanent host
Ken Jennings is the obvious choice. Please avoid celebrities that are known for a political bias and don’t have any history with the show. Ken is THE Jeopardy celebrity and has immense credibility. Please keep it in the family. We love him.
Mike was definitely the best! He has such a pleasant style and voice. He was so respectful of the contestants and not at all pompous.
Ken is best by a long shot!
Definitely Mike. I thought he was phenomenal. He has a huge personality but is taking the position to heart.
Ken Jennings is by far the best.
Dr. Oz is the worst. Why did you even consider him?
Ken Jennings should be the next permanente host.
Katie Couric was HORRIBLE!
Ken Jennings was GREAT!!
Ken is the best!!!!!
Ken Jennings should be host
Ken Jennings seems to be the obvious candidate to host Jeopardy! Alex would choose Ken! Ken seems to have the Spirit of the game! If he is willing, the sooner you get him back the better for everyone! Thank you for considering him!
Hands down Mike Richards was the best. I do like Ken Jennings however considering Mike Richards position. Katie Couric did well and Dr Oz did ok. I’m not sure why Dr Oz has gotten so much criticism. I so know it was due to his own show but we’re not talking about that and a should judge him on his performance on jeopardy. Like I said, just ok and nothing special. Ken Jennings would be my pick. Only because Richards is the producer. Jennings is very popular and knows the game well.
Ken Is hands down, the best. I bet Alex would agree.
Ken was the best
Definitely Ken with Mike in second. Dr Oz wasn't too bad regardless of whatever jeopardy fans are crying about but he just didn't seem like he can carry a game show. Katie is just terrible imo
Ken Jennings should be the permanent host.
I cast a strong vote for Ken. He carries the knowledge and respect of Alex. The rest off the newbies are knocking down the integrity of the show that Jeopardy and Alex worked so hard to create! Go, Ken!
Ken does ok but just doesn’t have the stage presence needed for success.
Dr Oz has done a good job, much more at ease that K Couric. He didn’t need notes as Katie did. He is much more empathetic towards the players.
