    that's a pretty good comparison for an off-center pick that turned out well, but even Conan had a long history of performance. i like what Ken said about Trebek being like Cronkite: having an authoritative but smooth and comforting manner. That seems like the best fit to me and I just don't see that in Ken. I wonder if the show would be willing to make a choice like that and have Jeopardy be a little more edgy. Might make a lot of old people die.

    See, i’d say that all that you described him with would be why he would be a great replacement to Trebek. I’d rather have king of the nerds hosting my trivia gameshow than a news anchor with his non regional dialect and canned TV presence

    think Ken is too political to host the show. he'd immediately alienate the olds/Trump supporters because of prior tweets and whatnot. that's a massive portion of the shows audience.

    personally, I'd be fine with some random with experience in announcing/hosting.

    You think the olds/Trump supporters that would be alienated enough to stop watching have been following KJ’s tweets? They only even learned what Twitter was 2 years ago because of Trump in the first place

    for nearly a year his books on amazon had <2 star review average because he made a tweet about Barron Trump.

    all I'm saying is it will be quite the deviation to go from Alex, who keeps to himself politically/socially (or so it seems to me) to someone who has had his thoughts plastered on the internet for nearly a decade now.

    If the choice is between Ken and your straw man, then yeah gimme Ken. I just think the heir to Trebek should have a lot of his qualities that helped the show work so smoothly.

    I think this about the 5th time this season that a 4 day champ has not been able to seal the deal with a 5th win. That pressure to punch their ticket to the Tourney is the real deal, too.

    My older brother, Steven, is a contestant on Wednesday's episode. He's one of the smartest people I know, so I'm relatively certain he won't embarrass himself, but it has been an incredibly nerve wracking few months since he went to LA.

    We have both been huge fans of the show for a long, long time - so win or lose I'm super excited for him.

    He can’t tell you what happened? When was it filmed?

    He filmed either the Monday or Tuesday after the Super Bowl. He's been super secretive about how he did, so I wish I knew more.
