    He's very pleasant, he and the producer are the only one's I've cared for so far.

    I saw where LeVar Burton (Jordie),Star Trek, is looking for a go at it.

    Classic! The guy asking about the field goal was pretty good too.

    I think he is doing a good job as host. Ken Jennings voice is grating or something just not comfortable. I kept expecting Katie Couric to cut in with a breaking story. The producer just seemed to be too stiff.
    Yes, I do watch most days.

    I hope they find a worthy permanent host. The guest hosts so far have been pretty bad. It’s Hollywood, really shouldn’t be that hard.

    I'd like to see Mr. T give it a go.

    Rodgers has been a weekly guest on Pat McAfee's show this year, and they talked about this. Aaron really took this seriously and put in a lot of work to get ready for hosting.

    I think Aaron Rogers is good, very laid back relaxed.

    Liked everyone but OZ- trying to act personable, but it comes off more like lecturing.

    I personally would have no problem with Ken Jennings or Brad Rutter being permanent hosts.
    Just big fans of both. Smart, conversational...

    Plus ( just me), would like to move on from the 'celebrity hosting' fascination, and get back to the game.

    My watching Jeopardy predates Alex Trebek. My dad and I ( one of the few things we seemed to do together/bond) used to watch host Art Fleming on B&W TV ( still!) in the late '60's.

    We try to always catch Jeopardy every night, but I'm often missing Fridays- gigs ( but that's good!)

    He does not seem natural in the role and my wife hates him as the host so that settles it.
    He certainly is intelligent though.

    Now that he's settled in, Rodgers has been my favorite and I hope they bring him back since he is apparently quite serious in wanting to be considered for full time host.

    That said, with the exception of the abysmal Dr. Oz, I think all of the guest hosts have done about as well as could be expected and each got better as they went along.

    Dr. Oz is a douchebag.

    But that really bugged me yesterday when the category was
    "Major," the clue was "Person leading a marching band, sometimes with a baton" and Rodgers gave the responder credit for "Majorette." The correct response, IMO, should have been "Drum Major." Those big sticks drum majors carry are indeed called "batons."

    But not as infuriating as when Dr. Oz permitted "brotherly love" as a response to "Agape." Brotherly love is "philios," not "agape." (I might have spelled philios or filios wrong.)

    With ALL due respect, I disagree with Recce and think that producer Mike (not the Kramer guy) Richards did the best job. I like how he moved things along. Just me.

    What is "I would make a terrible host"?

    I watched that too, with my grandma. I think they should bury the show with Alex Trebek, though, and put something else in that time slot, like a short late-night show for those of us with early bedtimes.

    I doubt that acceptance (or not) of a given answer is in the hands of the host.

    I don't care for Rogers delivery...and he carries a bit of "smarmy" in his corrections.

    I liked Ken J. and the producer. Katie couldn't make the switch from "talking head" and the quack left me feeling icky.

    I kinda like the guest host format, esp that they've kept it to a two week stint.

    The host doesn't decide on the correct answers. They've got a list of possible correct answers on a monitor in front of them. The judges can weigh in to fix...something they should have done with "majorette".

    I gotta have my Jeopardy!

    IMO, the show could hold its integrity with Ken J. as host.
    But I do like the guy, and he truly seems gracious and respectful, humbled when it comes to Alex T.

    Alex often did, as well.
    Either that, or head-patting pity :p
