    Bland & boring choice. Burton would’ve been better.

    A Couple of the guest hosts would’ve been better picks (including Burton) but I’m excited to see how Richards does. Good luck to him!

    The rotating host would have been a better idea, but I guess they wanted someone who was comfortable with the ins and outs of the game

    He was in my top three choices so I’m happy.

    For the record my thoughts on them all were:
    Ken Jennings: Great player BUT as a host came across as too annoying for me.
    Mike Richards: Solid Host and did it all well.
    Katie Couric: Solid Host but really exceled in the latter half of her run.
    Dr Oz: He wasn’t good.
    Aaron Rodgers: He did ok.
    Anderson Cooper: Did great but you can just tell he didnt want the gig full time.
    Bill Whitaker: Loved him but overall he didnt scream fun either
    Buzzy Cohen: He was my pick for the gig.
    Mayim Bialik: My second choice for the gig
    Savannah Guthrie: Did ok.
    Dr. Sanjay Gupta: Did ok.
    George Stephanopoulos: Did well
    Robin Roberts: Did great BUT we all know she wouldnt leave GMA
    LeVar Burton: Did well
    David Faber: He is Ok

    ON DECK:
    Joe Buck

    All of those great choices, only to pick in-house. How lame and boring.

    It does seem a little like home cooking, but Richards did an excellent job managing the game (as he should).

    I probably liked Ken Jennings the best overall. Mayim Bialik and Aaron Rodgers were great, but they were never going to be the full-time host.

    Dr. Oz and LeVar Burton were actively terrible and distracting. The rest were meh. I dread Joe Buck next week. And while I’m complaining, the current champion is stupendously annoying.

    Sad for Alex Trebek to be followed by someone so completely ordinary.

    I agree with every word.

    Mike Richards wouldn’t have been my first choice, but I liked him. Once you rule out the people who probably weren’t viable options (Mayim Bialik, Robin Roberts, Aaron Rogers), he’s a very good option. I was pulling for LeVar Burton, but I agree that he wasn’t great. But I expect that after a couple of weeks, the things that were rough about his hosting would have disappeared. He mostly seemed to be trying too hard. (As opposed to Dr. Oz, hands down the worst I’ve seen so far, who I think would always have been bad.) I found Ken Jennings a little irritating, and find Buzzy Cohen incredibly annoying any time he’s on screen.

    Interesting! I wonder if this will cause Jeopardy! to pivot, since the deal hasn’t finalized.

    Interesting development — Mike Richards was officially hired by Sony to be the syndicated host. Mayim Bialik will host primetime specials and tournaments to air on ABC. (This seems odd, with her currently having a sitcom on Fox, but I’ll take it because I thought she was a fun guest host.)
