Jeopardy! fans aren't convinced Aaron Rodgers should be the next host

  Jeopardy! fans aren't convinced Aaron Rodgers should be the next host In some good news for the Green Bay Packers, Jeopardy! fans want Ken Jennings to be the next full-time host and not Aaron Rodgers. This may be the big break Green Bay Packers general manager Brian Gutekunst was hoping for, and it's Jeopardy! related? It sure is. A recent study has found that Jeopardy! fans are hoping for Ken Jennings to be the next host to replace the one and only Alex Trebek. Aaron Rodgers, still furious with the front office, made some guest appearances and rumors have swirled he'd consider taking over the job if he indeed steps away from the game. As things stand, Jennings is the preferred host, though.

Future guest hosts include neurosurgeon and CNN medical adviser Dr . Sanjay Gupta; "Star Trek" and "Reading Rainbow" star LeVar Burton, who campaigned heavily for a chance at the job; "Good Morning America" anchors George Stephanopoulos and Robin Roberts; author and CNBC host David Faber; and sportscaster Joe Buck. And how soon will the show replace Alex Trebek? This article originally appeared on USA TODAY: ' Jeopardy !' guest hosts , ranked , from Savannah Guthrie to Mayim Bialik .

From the disastrous Dr . Oz to the clear front-runner. As a result, The A.V. Club has assembled the names of every guest host thus far and ranked their performances, beginning with the ones whose names should be removed from consideration and ending with the best candidates to succeed Trebek. We’ll be updating this list in the coming weeks as additional guest hosts enter the fray (George Stephanopoulos, Robin Roberts, the much-vaunted LeVar Burton), in order to place them in the rankings as well.

New details are emerging surrounding Britney Spears' thoughts on her conservatorship at least at one point five years ago.

On Tuesday, The New York Times released a report citing sealed court documents from 2016 in which the newspaper quoted from records, transcripts and reports from conversations between Spears and a probate investigator in her case. The documents - which the outlet said provide only a "snapshot" of Spears' "sentiments and situation" - were meant to remain confidential.

"She articulated she feels the conservatorship has become an oppressive and controlling tool against her," a court investigator wrote in 2016, adding that Spears reportedly believed the system had "too much control."

The Times' report comes as Spears is expected to address the court "directly" on Wednesday during a hearing regarding the status of her conservatorship.

Last summer, she made it known though that she is "strongly opposed" to having her father, Jamie - who stepped down from his role of overseeing her conservatorship in 2019 after more than a decade in the role - return as the sole conservator of her affairs and finances.

Spears said she "strongly prefers" that Jodi Montgomery, the licensed conservator who took over Jamie's post in 2019, "continue in that role as [she] has done for nearly a year," according to court documents.

During a public hearing last November, Judge Brenda Penny declined Spears' request to suspend Jamie from his role. At the time, Spears' attorney Samuel Ingham told the judge that Spears "is afraid of her father," adding that the singer - who has been on an indefinite work hiatus since January 2019 - "will not perform again if her father is in charge of her career."

Posting to Instagram again last week, Spears addressed whether she'll "take the stage again."

"I have no idea," she responded. "I'm having fun right now. I'm in a transition in my life and I'm enjoying myself, so that's it."
