Re: Jeopardy! Interim Host Thread

I will watch whoever is hosting but I just don’t get the love for Burton. Nothing against him personally.

None of this last group really excites me. Just an actor with a rabid internet following and some talking heads on various TV shows. I think all will do a decent job.

Even speculating he could do both is ridiculous.

Re: How Did Aaron Rodgers Do as Host?

He may have a lot of respect for the game, but I doubt he would be able to host the show and play as quarterback at the same time because it is possible that he has to play a big game on the day of taping, so Ken still holds the top spot for me as the new host. I think it is highly unlikely that th...

Re: Tuesday, April 20, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

In Atlanta right now and Biden’s speech ended just in time to see the bonus round on WOF and all of Jeopardy.

No real guess on FJ. Started with Little Mermaid and then Cinderella’s castle.

I thought Anderson did a great job. My job on FJ wasn’t quite as good as I had American Gothic.

Re: How Did Aaron Rodgers Do as Host?

Seems like most everyone is giving him high marks for effort so I have to be the one with the hot take that he was the worst of the guest hosts. His reading/presenting voice ranged from nervous-kid-reading-book-report-at-the-front-of-the-classroom to Eeyore. When not behind the lectern he shifted b...

Re: Jeopardy! Interim Host Thread

I wonder how he got the job. The other guests are mostly all talk show hosts or interview people on TV for a living. Dr. Gupta and Bailik are exceptions, but he has been a medical expert on CNN giving commentary and she is an actress. What was it about Rodgers that caused Jeopardy to reach out to him?

Re: How Did Aaron Rodgers Do as Host?

9 from me while I would have checked 8.5 if that was available. Aaron's 10 games were enough to demonstrate the QB can be like Mike (Strahan) and have a TV career post NFL. Aaron needed a little more gusto as his energy level seemed to be some kind of intentional low key. I gave him an 8 but also w...

Re: Friday, April 16, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

My first thought was Young but thought he was dead by then and didn’t actually found BYU. He was still alive but it seems he didn’t directly create BYU. I think I had heard this about Stanford before so I got it right. I did get a chuckle from Aaron’s last FJ being about a school “Cal beats all the ...

I had low hopes of getting FJ when I saw the category and my hopes sunk lower when I saw the answer. Put down velocity just to have something.

Re: Wednesday, April 14, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

The list of Hamlet adaptations didn’t list this one.



Hamlet was my first thought and only briefly considered Othello.

Disappointed Aaron didn’t say Robert Burns with a Scottish brogue.
