Ken Jennings' 'Jeopardy!' Ratings Slip 5% in Week 2
Week 2 of Ken Jennings' (temporary, for now at least) "Jeopardy!" tenure slipped 5% in ratings from Week 1, according to Nielsen. That rate of retention is not bad at all, and with the 5.9 rating, the Sony quiz show remained No. 1 in syndication for the week ending Jan. 24, 2021. But "Wheel of Fortune" and "Family Feud" are getting closer as "Jeopardy!" settles down. The Pat Sajak-hosted puzzle show drew a 5.7 rating in the same week. Steve Harvey's game show had a 5.6. Survey says it's gonna be tight for the near future. For penultimate week of January, "Judge Judy" was somewhat close behind the game-show competition with an average 5.1 rating.

Ahead of his guest host duties, Richards spoke torevealing that he only found out he would be stepping into Alex Trebek's shoes days before filming.
"I didn’t know I was going to be doing it until three days before, and so I had not prepared myself to host in the way that I know other guest hosts are. So there was just a lot to unpack. Plus, I also only owned one suit, so there was a little bit of scrambling there,” he said.
Adding, “It was very fun; humbling doesn’t begin to describe the feeling. It hit me like a ton of bricks when Johnny Gilbert announced my name. That’s of course the last thing you hear when you start to walk out. … and it was overwhelming in the moment.”

I like this Mike Richards guy as a Jeopardy host. Not overbearing or distracting, and perfectly pleasant. It should be nice to see him get more comfortable and test the water over the coming days. Thinking maybe a relative unknown might be a decent lock.

10 min in & I feel Mike Richards has not only hosted a game show as a previous career but was also a stand in for Jon Hamm in the early seasons of Mad Men. I like Ken Jennings but I’m also very ok with Mike becoming the new host if he doesn’t want to be the EP anymore
