    Apparently fans are "clamoring" for executive producer Mike Richards to be permanent host after he filled in starting Monday?

    Story

    Is this true?

    I've only watched Monday's episode (Feb 22) but the guy did a more than credible job.

    I saw the episode on mute with subtitles. He did a good job. I’m not sure I’d pick him for permanent replacement.

    Yea he's done a pretty good job. Both him and Ken have done well. Out of all the future guest hosts though, I'll be skipping the Dr. Oz ones. The rest are ok.

    Agree though I think Ken Jennings' thanks to Alex is a better way to end the episode.

    LeVar Burton told MSNBC's Joshua Johnson tonight that “in many respects, I feel like I have been preparing my whole life for the job...should that job come my way, I would be exceedingly glad.”

    MAKE IT SO.

    Followed by Dr. Oz from 3/22-4/2, and Aaron Rodgers from 4/5-4/16. All the other announced guest hosts are still listed as TBA.

    Ugh, Dr Oz? Good thing it’ll be warm and sunlight after work by then. I’ve been using it as treadmill viewing. No I’m not going to watch any TV program in which a fake doctor partially at fault for antivax culture appears.

    So if Dr. Oz turns out to be a hit, will future guests hosts include Gwyneth Paltrow, Kevin Sorbo, Tucker Carlson and Piers Morgan? Maybe an NRA member too.

    I sincerely hope not. I hope the producers realize that would be setting it down a direction so far from the what Trebek worked so hard to create.

    Sounds like Oz was asked to be a guest host because he and Trebek were good friends.

    If not Levar,
    How about Mike Rowe?

    Not really excited by the lineup

    Any of the other guest hosts would honestly be fine so far.

    A backed-up septic tank would be a better host than Oz.
