Jeopardy! Overthrows Family Feud: Most Popular Game Show? [YouTube]

Did Jeopardy! overthrow Family Feud in the ratings? Fans say it’s the most popular game show. The two classic game shows have been fighting for ratings lately. Family Feud isn’t dealing with a host shakeup like the quiz show. A series of celebrity guest hosts filled in for the late Alex Trebek for the past year. Now, it’s down to Ken Jennings and Mayim Bialik.

The new permanent host should be announced by the end of Season 38 in July 2022. Fans have been sharing their thoughts on Jennings and Bialik. Some support the show’s “true host” as they criticize Bialik’s every move. Those fans argue that she’s not the right fit for the show. She’s been slammed for her slow pace and constant blunders.

Who will become the new host of Jeopardy?

Fans are impatiently waiting to see who will become the new host of Jeopardy! There has been buzz that the position could go to Mayim Bialik. For instance, she’s been doing a lot of heavy promotion for the show. She’s doing most of the heavy-lifting while Ken Jennings is on an extended hiatus.

The champion has other matters to focus on. Jeopardy! fans had a feeling that he performed for an orchestra in London. He also announced that he will be one of the celebrity contestants on Pyramid. Some were concerned that this would distract him away from the other game show in his life.

Jennings is a very busy and in-demand man. He’s also a Chaser on ABC’s The Chase. But, Bialik is just as busy. She has her own mental health podcast and she stars on Call Me Kat on FOX, which has been renewed for a third season. This could take her away from standing behind the podium. In fact, Bialik is so busy that she mixed up her personal Instagram page with her professional one.

This caused her to apologize to Jeopardy! fans. There have also been whispers that Bialik could become the new host of Celebrity Jeopardy!, which will air this summer. Both Bialik and Jennings will be taking over ABC’s “Summer Fun & Games” with their appearances. Yet, it’s hard to tell who will end up with the coveted position.

Jeopardy! beating out Family Feud in ratings?

As TV Shows Ace previously reported, Jeopardy! wasn’t a match for Family Feud. Fans noticed that the Mayim Bialik-hosted episodes had a slight dip in ratings. This was apparent during the Memorial Day weekend. It’s likely because most people were on the road during that time.

Jeopardy! has once regained a lead over Family Feud. One fan noticed on Reddit that had an uptick in ratings on Ryan Long’s final game and during the next five games with former champ Eric Ahasic. It’ll be interesting to see if those fans will stick around for Megan Wachspress, who has created controversy with her lucky streak.

Some fans argued that Jeopardy! is better than Family Feud, which has become “silly at this point.” What are your thoughts? Which game show do you think is better? Sound off below in the comment section.
