    When the time comes, who should be Alex Trebek's replacement? I think it should be Ken Jennings. I say so because he's the next most recognizable Jeopardy name after Alex's, he seems like a man of integrity, dignity, and maturity, and has always carried himself well in interviews that I've seen. To me, these are the right attributes for the future host of Jeopardy.

    Who do you think and why?

    Note - if you don't watch the show there's no need to respond.

      That I'm gonna agree with. Steve Harvey is busy, maybe they can bring Arsenio Hall back in the spotlight. :lol:

          I like him as my second choice. He does a great job with "The Price Is Right".

            Please not some dumbass that thinks he is funny. How about someone like Alex (who really makes the show good).

            Calm, intelligent, professional, respectful, witty.

            Never mind, we don’t have any people like that!

                  Seems game show hosts are always guys. Except Jane Lynch, who is awesome.

                    I think Jim Parsons (Sheldon from Big Bang Theory) could do a great job. He has already been type-cast into an intellectual, so it seems like it would be a good fit.

                      We’re running short on intellectuals in Hollywood so we may have to outsource it to China.... lol

                      I love trebec and it’s going to be hard to see anyone else up there. He made the show.

                        Or they could do the right thing and honor the man and the legend he's made and end the show.

                            That's what I was thinking - but then again it's Hollywood.....

                              That would mean altering the cameras to have a major fish-eye lens. :lol:

                              How about Ashton Kutcher....he's looking for a new gig now. :)

                                A while back the speculation was that Anderson Cooper was a candidate.
