    Jeopardy announced it will resume production and Ken Jennings is to be the first interim host.

    "A long-term replacement host for Trebek has yet to be named, and Jennings is only the first of what will be a series of guest hosts, the show said. The additional guest hosts have yet to be announced."

    That's what The Beatles should have done. Reformed and had a series of guests perform on different songs to replace Lennon, except not using Ken Jennings.

    Jeopardy will be in good hands with Ken Jennings. Short term or long term. I'd argue that the Beatles would also have been in good hands with Ken Jennings!

    Well, OK I guess....as long as they don't settle on Will Ferrell.

    "I'd argue that the Beatles would also have been in good hands with Ken Jennings!"

    You'd lose that argument.

    Go Ken!
    Maybe Brad Rutter too, up the road?

    Love Jeopardy!

    Ken Jennings is probably a very talented musician.

    Yes, man! Inspired yet utterly obvious choice. I hope he’s good at it and wants to do it for awhile.

    Jennings might be ok for now, but I think that as they settle on a permanent new host, there is going to be immense pressure for their selection to be more...inclusive.

    Well, Kenan Thompson has qualifying experience...even if the show takes on a little different tone.

    "Who will fill Sean Connery's shoes?"

    Burt Reynolds!
    oh wait...

    If they can talk Gilbert Gottfried into taking the job, I'd probably watch it.

    Watson could be a contender.

    I think Ken Jennings might be good long term host down the road. I like the idea of short term interim hosts until a replacement is chosen

    Ken was brought on as a producer recently and I imagined it could be as an eventual long team host

    No one could ever fill Sean Connery’s shoes

    It’s the end of an era for me/will never be the same

    Kind of like when BoB retired from Price Is Right

    Makes me sad :(

    I’m looking forward to seeing what Ken Jennings brings to the show.

    I’m not sure about replacing Lennon but he might be able to replace Roger McGuinn in the Byrds...

    He'll definitely uphold the high standards of the show, not letting it be degraded like the remakes of so many other good old game shows.
