So far it seems that Ken Jennings is doing yeoman's work with his turn at hosting the show. Big shoes to fill and he is not trying to be Alex.

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Katie Couric, Mayim Bialik and Aaron Rodgers are among the future guest hosts who will fill in for the late Alex Trebek on “Jeopardy!”

The show announced Wednesday that Couric, the journalist and former “Today” show host, will become the first woman ever to host the show.......

Ken Jennings isn’t the only former “Jeopardy!” winner given a chance to fill the shoes of the late Alex Trebek. Aaron Rodgers will also be posing the answers to panelists later this year.

“I’m really excited about it,” the Green Bay Packers quarterback said Tuesday, during a media session mostly devoted to his team’s upcoming playoff game against the Los Angeles Rams..........

This kills me. I'm a Jeopardy junkie and I can't not watch. I'll admit, ARod was a pretty good player; but the questions are dumbed down a bit for the celebs version. Gonna kill me to watch him but I will.

They are killing me. I guess Mayim will be okay (her new show stinks, though) but Kate Couric has become insufferable.

put me down as katie hater; fake friendly as always, not a brain in her head

producer guy b4 katie was also dreadful

ken j had shaken off the nerves and was coming into his own, engaging and encyclopedically witty

hope "the chase" tanks and kj gets the permanent gig

He was good .... alot quicker answering yes or no to an answer. I couldn't stand doc. OZ pregnant pause. In the final jeopardy one dude didn't know the answer so he asked Rogers "Who decided to kick that field goal. " Rogers started giggling. It was great.

I don't think he was that good. Aside from the reaction during Final Jeopardy he was flat and, dare I say it, limp. I understand that Rodgers is smart and can have intelligent conversations outside of football, but he has the personality of wet rope.
