Producers cite an expanding demographic audience and the reasons for having two hosts.

“With all of our plans for ‘Jeopardy!’ — which is more ‘Jeopardy!,’ not less, more versions — we’re visiting need, multiple hosts to represent the entire audience, to represent the whole country, to take this franchise forward,” executive producer Michael Davies told Variety in June.

It was recently announced that Bialik’s Fox sitcom Call Me Kat would air for a second season. Also, Bialik had recently been tapped to steer the new season of Celebrity Jeopardy!

Ken Jennings recently returned to host the ultimate two weeks of the show before the end of the current season.

The look for a new host after legend Alex Trebek’s death has been rough for show-runners. Producers initially used a roster of celebrities to guest host. They included a good range of hosts like Katie Couric and LeVar Burton to round out the 2020-21 season.

Producers thought they had landed on a final host in long-time executive producer Mike Richards. However, he stepped down just a fortnight after uncovering some controversial remarks he had previously made.

For instance, in a recent episode, an error by Bialik almost cost a contestant $4,000.

Now, in her response, contestant Andie begins with the wrong response. However, she corrects herself before her time runs out.

Mayim, however, cut her off mid-sentence to declare her response incorrect. Luckily for Andie, the judges reviewed the choice and reversed it. She was awarded $4,000.

However, many fans didn’t hold back when responding to Bialik’s mistake on Twitter. “Response time was everywhere the place today. Two seconds, maybe seven, who knows,” one fan complained.

“Mayim hesitates on obvious correct answers, then jumps everywhere Andy before she even can finish her answer.

Glad the judges did the proper thing. Now it’s time for the EP to try to do the right thing and get Ken back,” another wrote.
“Once again, Mayim Bialik is simply an all-around poor jeopardy host. What percentage times is she gonna call it wrong??” they wrote.

Ken Jennings returned to Jeopardy! as host on Monday, July 18th. He returns to host the ultimate two weeks of season 38. The season concludes on July 29th. Fans will then need to wait until September for the next round of new episodes.
