Aaron Rodgers needs to be the new host of Jeopardy. We like Ken Jennings and have been annoyed at the celeb hosts...until A A Ron. His personality and professionalism are on full display, it's awesome. We're both amazed it works, but it does.
The Dr. Oz news was enough to make me stop watching completely until they get their heads on straight. I'm not even very wild about Ken Jennings, and that's before he had his little embarrassments.
Speaking of him, the new version of The Chase with the three Jeopardy big dogs as the guys to beat is fucking woeful--the old version with Mark Labbett (aka "the Beast") had some charm and he was genuine enough. In the new version, none of those guys are really able to do banter in that format well, and cutting to the green room with the two who aren't in the hot seat to hear their dull commentary is just awful. They needed to come up with a twist--say that the contestants could burn a bit of money in order to force a switch between one of the hosts, or maybe if one person was by himself in the chase part, they could burn half their money to recruit one of the two inactive hosts to be on his team. Something to liven it up. They had one episode where none of the contestants could even GET to the chase and then they let them all come back in with a much better pot than they would have had if one of them had made it, which is just stupid--"yeah, you lost, so we're going to reward you for losing so horribly because we don't have a plan about what to do when a team is performing that badly".
