Since Alex Trebek passed away this past November, there has been a ton of talk regarding who will be his successor.  The shows that Alex had pre-recorded were scheduled to air through the Christmas holiday, with Christmas Day being the last show.  Those shows were pushed and the last one actually aired this past Friday, the 8th of January.

This week began the guest hosts who are in contention to be the permanent new host of Jeopardy. The "G.O.A.T" player of Jeopardy, Ken Jennings, is the first one.  He has been hosting the show this week. I did watch it yesterday, he does a fairly good job.  I mean, he gets it.  He was on the show for a record number of weeks, plus coming back and playing the championship games as well.  Next week will be Katie Couric.  To me, that's an odd choice.  I don't know why I think it's odd, but I do.

There have been some other people mentioned to be in the running.  And yesterday, Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers announced that he will be guest hosting as well.  It's not clear when that week will happen, but one would assume sometime mid-February? Rodgers said he's always been a fan of the show and was on a special edition of the show "Celebrity Jeopardy".  He actually came out as the winner.  He won $50,000 for his charity of choice, AACC or Athletes Against Childhood Cancer.  Rodgers was talking about the hosting gig on the Pat McAfee Show.

Will you watch when he tries out his hosting skills?
