Re: Jeopardy! Interim Host Thread

I agreed with the ranking all the way through to 2 (I rate the person ranked 1 in the bottom 3). Odd how the writer manages to rank Guthrie when we've only seen two days of her hosting. I mostly agree with your ranking, although I put Rodgers ahead of Cooper and Ken just barely ahead of Buzzy. Mike...

Re: How Did Mayim Bialik Do as Host?

Performance-wise Mayim was in the top 3, I thought. Maybe not top 1. I agree - I still put Buzzy at the top, followed closely by Mayim and Ken...but I could live with Aaron. Me too - Ken and Mayim are so close for different reasons I can't separate them, and Buzzy was about as close to perfection a...

Re: How Did Buzzy Cohen Do as Host?

Ken - who I thought was an excellent host - has been the benchmark against whom I measured every other guest host. Some (Oz, Whittaker) performed poorly, some were forgettable, one or two came close-ish (Rodgers, maybe Cooper). I was particularly disappointed by the poor performance of the guest hos...

Re: Wednesday, May 26, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

This board felt easier than the last two. Buzzy has been my favorite host so far, but I have to say that it sounded like he cut off Jennifer before she had completed her response for the clue on the dog breed that was at the bottom of the board. I joined the contestants with the negs of "fencing" a...

Re: Tuesday, April 27, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

For what it's worth, Snopes says it wasn't a white power gesture. https://www.snopes.com/fact-check/jeopardy-hand-gesture/ And they quoted in evidence Andy's tweet which has since been deleted because he changed his view of the gesture. The lack of disavowal of white supremacy from Kelly is a huge ...

Re: Jeopardy! Interim Host Thread

I suppose it’s not the end of the world if the show selects an older host but I wish that they would select someone in their 30’s or 40’s. So far Mike Richards has done the best job, followed by Mehmet Oz. Couric was dreadful. Rodgers got better over the two weeks. Cooper isn’t very good but he’s b...

Re: The 2021 Tournament of Champions Is Happening Next Month

Considering we are entering a new era for the show, and had the GOAT already for the previous era, I suspect nobody from the Alex days are going to be back for future tournaments anyway; other than maybe someone from this upcoming TOC. If no other former champions have guest hosted other than Ken a...

Re: How Did Katie Do as Host?

I came to these two weeks as someone who has has heard Katie Couric's name but knew nothing else other than that she is a journalist. I had never seen her before so had no idea what to expect. I felt that she was rather stiff in the first week, but relaxed more and seemed more comfortable in the rol...

Re: Poll on Boardies Covid-19 Impact

Above, Cailin mentioned the term "long-haul" symptoms. I'm seeing more and more in the news about COVID long-haulers, e.g., people who survived COVID but who have been told by their doctors that they have to be on oxygen for the rest of their lives, or for whom chronic fatigue symptoms have not sub...

I'm very glad to hear this, Bamaman. I really hope neither of you has long-term problems from this. Well, we are now COVID survivors. I went back to work yesterday (an overnight shift) and got through it. My wife also went back to her job. She drives a school bus so she was worried about being alert...

Re: How Did Mike Richards Do as Host?

5 though hesitated over giving 6. As others have said, he felt like he was trying too hard and needed to dial down a few notches. His "be kind" speech at the end was a nice tribute in theory but felt clunky the first time (reading from a script rather than a heartfelt sentiment) and after the second...

Re: J! in the Media

Thank you for posting the Mike Richards interview, Mark. It's definitely given me a new appreciation for him; I may not care for his hosting but I now very much believe in his love for the show and for Alex.

Re: Monday, February 22, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Count two in this household who are almost ready to skip these two weeks; Mike Richards grated on us annoyingly, despite the lovely Alex monologue.

I was not going to miss the Canadian river, since I cross over it twice each way on my journey to work in normal times.
