Aaron Rodgers apparently won’t be the next Jeopardy! host

Jeopardy Productions, Inc.

Packers fans have plenty to worry about when it comes to the future of quarterback Aaron Rodgers. It looks like they now have one less thing to worry about.

Via Cynthia Littleton of Variety.com, Jeopardy! executive producer Mike Richards is in “advanced negotiations” to become the next permanent host of the show.

It’s not done yet, and like any other deal of this nature it won’t be done until it’s done.

A Sony Pictures spokesman told Littleton that discussions are ongoing with several potential candidates to replace Alex Trebek, who died last year at the age of 80, after hosting the show for 36 years.

Rodgers guest-hosted the show for two weeks in April, and he has made no secret of his interest in becoming the permanent host.

After months of speculation about his football future, Rodgers showed up for training camp. He’s all in for 2021; after that, who knows?

  1. So after all that guest host nonsense, they’re just gonna give it to the executive producer? Lame.

  2. For me it isn’t about AR. I haven’t like ANY of them. I have watched the show since before AT and rarely watch it since he passed. No substitute.

  3. Apparently the only ones who thought he would become the full time host were football fans and writers. Maybe he can be the back up to daytime TV producer Mike Richards?

  4. There were stories immediately after his hosting that his ratings were below several of the other people so it’s no surprise he didn’t get the gig. But deciding on the executive producer is pretty lame after all the build up.

  5. David Faber crushed the other jeopardy candidates. going to make this richards guy look like a clown if he hires himself.
