  • Ken, I am completely flabbergasted after following you for the past week, and, I’m convinced you are perfect and capable of filling Alex shoes. He would be so proud of you. You too have that special friendly and relaxing personality. God bless and protect you, keep up the good work👍☘️

  • R.I.P. Alex Trebek He became host in 1984, and continued to host until his death in 2020. No one will truly replace Alex Trebek, but we can still remember him by playing and watching Jeopardy.

  • At first I didn't want Jennings to land this gig. He's been a bit saucy and caustic at times for my liking, but that seems to have been toned down or gone. Maybe it was youthful swagger? He's done a wonderful job this week...very affable, kind to the contestants and keeps the show moving at a nice, brisk pace. Should he take on the job full-time, I would be totally fine with that, based on what I've seen this week. And, really...who else should/could it be? It may as well be the best player the game has ever known, and someone whose ties to the show are etched in everyone's minds. I know he takes the job, and responsibility, seriously. It shows. And that's really all I can ask. It will take some getting used to, for sure. But we all knew this was going to happen at some point. It's sad that Alex is no longer there as host, but his spirit/memory isn't going anywhere, and as long as the game is honored and maintained, it will go on just fine. I like what I've seen this week from Ken Jennings, so my mind has been changed.

  • Is Ken Jennings just filling in until they find another host? I've been watchin him and not even knowing who he is and that he's filled before, it almost seems that he should be the host. He's doing a wonderful job and it makes me wonder how Alex's first time went until he became the best at this show. And yes, one could really tell he loved the show. : ) 💖

  • personally i'm pulling for Ken to become the full-time host. he's done a great job so far. still doesn't seem real, though. we welcomed Alex into our home for a half hour each evening - still seems like he should come back next week or something. but since that's of course not happening, Ken's doing wonderful so far.

  • No one can ever replace Alex Trebek! He was and is Jeopardy. I'm having a difficult time watching Jennings. He was an excellent player, is brilliant, but is not a good choice to host Jeopardy. Her doesn't have the same class, charisma, charm, personality, etc., as Alex. I heard that Katie Couric might guest host and she would be an excellent choice as she has a personality that would compliment the show, she's bright, and being a woman, she won't be compared to Alex in the same way that a man would. I don't know who all they have in mind for guest hosts, but please move Ken along or after a lifetime of watching Jeopardy, I may have to watch something else.

  • Ken showing the emotions that all of us are feeling, Alex departing was hard for all of us, Ken knows that all too well, being one of, if not the most, prominent ones to share that stage and studio with Alex, a privilege every crew member, contestant, and audience member (including myself) was honored to have. Ken really empathizes with all of us, honoring and thanking Alex, and at the same time he maintains his composure and hosts very well.
