Jeopardy! fans have proof that Mayim Bialik is not the right host. She took over the quiz show while Ken Jennings is on an extended hiatus. Her fellow guest host admitted that he’ll be out for “months.” He should return next month when the new permanent guest host will be announced.
In the meantime, fans have been searching for clues on social media. They noticed something else hasn’t happened to the show in “months.” Viewers accused Bialik of forgetting to do this as they continue to argue that she was not the right fit for the job. Read on to see what the fans have to say now about the actress.
Did Mayim Bialik make another mistake?
Jeopardy! fans were already miffed with Mayim Bialik for making a mistake about the names of the segments. She insisted on calling the regular round First Jeopardy! But since there’s already a Double Jeopardy! round, it wasn’t necessary to give that round a name. Bialik owned up to that mistake and said she wouldn’t make do that again.
She already accidentally leaked the clues to future Jeopardy! episodes on social media. Fans took notice of one of her Instagram posts. Now, they noticed her latest blunder. She’s been hosting the game show for the sixth week in a row. The hosting slot will be announced by the end of Season 38 in July 2022.
In the meantime, Bialik has taken over the podium. Some fans noticed that she made another blunder. Arguably, she’s not entirely responsible for this fluke. For the first time in “nine straight weeks,” TV News Check reported that Jeopardy! fell behind Family Feud in ratings. For decades, it has dominated in its regular timeslot.
It experienced an 8 percent decrease for the episodes that started with Memorial Day and ended June 5th. Family Feud beat out the game show with a 4.9 Nielson rating. Meanwhile, Jeopardy! ended up with a 4.8 syndicated game show rating. Fans think it’s “proof” that Bialik is not the right person to host the show.
Ken Jennings is the true Jeopardy! host?
Jeopardy! fans took to Reddit to share the news of the ratings. They think it’s “proof” that Mayim Bialik is not the right fit for the show. Most agree that Ken Jennings is the true host of their beloved show.
“This has been a mega season of champions and I’m surprised by this fall in ratings,” one user posted.
“Bring back Ken! It’s what the people want!” another added.
