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.

Good grief. I hope this is not true. The comments are hilarious though.

Apropos of nothing, but i met Joe Buck once; the year was 2003 and i was in the Quarter with some friends drunk as the proverbial skunk.. as we passed one of the ***ty bars on Bourbon, someone in our group said ”There’s Joe Buck!’.. he stepped out of the lobby to talk to us for a minute, and I remember asking him: “Joe- we are Saints fans.. Please tell us somehting, ANYTHING positive about our team”.. He looked at me and said, “Well, ya got a helluva running back”.. referring to Deuce McAllister.. we all, of course, cheered and agreed..... also, Joe Buck is much bigger than you’d expect, i guess he looks small on the teevee since he’s usually next to Aikman.

BTW, i love Jeopardy, and I’d prefer Buck as the permanent host over Rodgers.. Somehting about Rodgers has always annoyed me, and for me he would detract from the Jeopardy viewing experience.

I don't know why people seem to despise Joe Buck so much. I can see him doing very well in this role. He's engaging, has a calm demeanor, and has some of the same dry wittiness that Trebek possessed.

Sorry, but, to me, Buck projects as a smug feminine hygiene product with zero humility. IMO, comparing him favorably to Trebek in any way is criminal.

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.
It's no secret I don't like Aaron, but I thought he did okay given how he's never done anything like this at all and he apparently loves Jeopardy as much as I do. His voice is just too flat, though; and while his pregnant pauses weren't as bad as Oz, he did seem to have some delay.

Anderson's my favorite so far and I missed half of today's program. And, though gay, he may not be diverse enough for today's climate. I mean, as a male Vanderbilt, he's poster child for white privilege.

He's an awful (NFL) commentator. From what I understand he's much better covering MLB games. I don't watch baseball so I have no idea.

Levar Burton should hands down take over Jeopardy

Gotta disagree with you there. One of the networks needs to give him a lifetime contract to make Reading Rainbow till the day he dies.

Jeopardy would be so much better with physical pvp instead of a daily double.

Cooper, to me, has felt the least conspicuous, if that makes any sense. He just sort of blended into it far better that any of the other guest hosts. However I'm still Team Burton.
