I much preferred LeVar when he showed modesty when people were campaigning for him just after Alex died. Now, he's just become another campaigner and it's really... narcissistic, I agree. I also find some of his followers really pushy.
I don't want to see/read the meltdowns when he is not chosen.

He's got his guest-host spot. He should shut up now until he gets his week to audition, then people can see if he's any good.
Besides Burton, Rodgers, and Jennings, have any of the upcoming guest hosts actually said they're auditioning to be permanent?
|by Anonymous||reply 6||04/26/2021|
No, r6. I don't think any of them have stated a desire.
But if they do want to host, they are keeping quiet, unlike LeVar.

I thought Anderson has been doing a decent job. He's stopped putting on the ridiculous, manly deep voice and gone back to his natural, slightly higher speaking voice. He's able to engage with the contestants in a personal way that none of the other guest hosts have been able to do so far. He's not going to be the permanent host, since there's no way he's moving to LA to do it, but he's been refreshing.
Tonight's game was exciting. An edge of your seat nail biter.

Bill Whitaker is doing the same thing that Anderson Cooper did. After the contestant answers with a question, you don't know if its correct for the time it takes for the host to look down at the screen to see the answer. So you don't know if its correct or not. Just too slow. Bring back Aaron Rodgers.

Latest reviews show Anderson Cooper had the lowest ratings of any host even Dr Oz. Ken Jennings has had the highest rating. After Bill Whitaker's 2 weeks then the hosts will be Jeopardy contestant Buzzy Cohen, then Mayim Bialik, Savannah Guthrie, Dr, Sanjay Gupta, and George Stephanopoulos. The final four guest hosts for the season will be Robin Roberts, Levar Burton, David Faber and Joe Buck.

I suspect the ratings are just going down in general because the majority of the public don't like the revolving hosts. Falling ratings don't have as much to do with the specific guest host as they do with they fact the show is going this guest host route.

Of the many people serving as guest hosts since January, most already have other jobs and aren't available to serve as the permanent host.

Compare Jeopardy with TPIR. The host there, whether Bob or Drew, is actively involved in the game -- the star of the show actually -- and there's a lot of variety in the game. A fun gig for the right person.

I think all "real jobs" have a lot of routine in it, but being on camera host of a quiz show like Jeopardy has less than most. All the glam/tedious details and variables of TV production and continually changing selection of new "customers" (contestants) and forever seeing a range of new categories - history, art, media, wordplay and languages, geography, science, music, popular culture etc. etc. National media reactions to what you and the show are doing.

Nobody said it's a "horrible" career, simply that once you look into it there's not much there. Sure, beats most other routine jobs. But not high-flying ones.

I hate to admit it but Anderson Cooper has been the most competent and unobtrusive guest host thus far. He will not want the job so Producer Mike or Ken for the win.

We haven't talked about it much, but the Sony people are no doubt concerned about the show's demographics -- the average viewer age is about 65 -- and will be looking for a somewhat youthful host to broaden the show's appeal. Anderson, Katie, Oz and Bill don't do that.

I thought that FJ American history answer/question was easy tonight, but only one contestant got it completely right.

R144 Partially right never really counts.

R144, I thought it was obvious. Surprised the champ got it wrong, but she won anyway.
Bill Whitaker is so bland, bring on Buzzy!

r144 Yes, it was obviously Washington and Adams. No doubt. Don't know why others were throwing Jefferson in there. He was the third president.

I'm always amazed when the FJ is a biblical topic. I know nothing about it. Tonight, two contestants got it right. Good for them.

New champ Jeff seems much too tough on himself when he responds incorrectly.

I can see thinking they were notifying the winner and loser of the election as opposed to the winner and his veep. Of course, Jefferson was not the loser. Washington was unopposed.

I like the new champ. I won’t miss Jeff’s sighs.

Jeff gave me anxiety with all his reactions. I mean, I get it, it meant a big deal to him but it was uncomfortable to watch him sigh or roll his eyes or beat himself up.

R151 It was very neurotic. Seeing that on the first date one would assure there is no second.

Ha ha Jeff. Bye bye. He was annoying.

R152, I wouldn't want to be one of his students.
