Ken Jennings' First Episode Hosting Jeopardy | January 11th, 2021

1 310 Դիտումներ 135հզր

This is Ken Jennings' first episode as Guest Host of Jeopardy. I think he should be the permanent host if I am being completely honest. We will see. I don't own any of the rights to this video. All rights go to Jeopardy, Sony, and CBS Television Distribution.

Recorded at 3:30 PM on WPSD 6, Paducah, KY via Mediacom Cable

      @Nicholas Mohr Oh, almost forgot: you didn't mention whether you'd be posting Aaron Rodgers' host gigs. Hope you do-- I'm a huge fan of his. (Been a Packers fan for ~40 years). Alex Trebek can never truly be replaced. How does anyone replace a legend? Always liked Ken Jennings, which is why I watched this video (and tolerated the commercials). He did a bang-up job of hosting-- very impressive. Can't wait to see Rodgers in the role!

      @Crusty Curmudgeon hi. The reason I was excited over 100k views is, I’m just a 16 year old posting random videos and sharing what I love which is Jeopardy and never expected it to hit this high. And about the commercials, I have no idea whatsoever how to edit out commercials. I have no video editing software whatsoever and am not good at using it. I can’t pause the recording either because I’m just using a 2 1/2 year old Ematic Digital converter box from Walmart. It’s all I have.

      Mr. Mohr: Over 100k views was certainly to be expected for Ken Jennings' inaugural run as guest host. (He did a fabulous job!) And I know I'm not alone in eagerly awaiting Aaron Rodgers' run in the spot-- which I dearly hope you will also post. But... but... but... you gotta know what I'm gonna say, here: can you PLEASE edit out the commercials before posting?

    Ken has earned his stripes to be the next great host of Jeopardy! Art Fleming was the Czar of Jeopardy! Alex Trebek the beloved King of Jeopardy! Ken Jennings is the crown Prince of Jeopardy! If the producers want another 3 decades of this amazing game show then Ken Jennings is their best chance. He is obviously brilliant, affable, and most importantly credible. Obviously he needs to get more comfortable and show some of his humorous and conversational side. Fleming and Trebek were polished television host professionals. They were in command of the medium. But that's not what made them great and unique. It was that their love for the show format of trivia and respect for the contestants' knowledge and TV audience shone through the camera. Ken does have those attributes. Jennings will learn all the other stuff with experience. Forget all the other "celebrity" folks auditioning for host. Aaron Rodgers is interesting but his first love is the NFL. We need a host who has Jeopardy! running through their veins--and that's Ken Jennings. As I was writing this it became clear by listening that Jennings is very easy on the ears. Let's close the deal. Jennings as the new host of Jeopardy!

He is respectfull intelligent and has earned it. if you replace jennings with a far left asshole this show wil become hatefully political and divide everybody instantly.

    This is the last week that Ken is the Guest Host of the show, I seriously hope that After this string of Guests hosts is long and gone, I hope that Ken decides to become the Permanent new host of the show, because I feel like he is almost as good as Alex Trebek. I most especially enjoy the part when he signs off, he always thanks Alex!

    What better host for a fitting? His voice is unique and his presence is fitting for the show. He's the greatest Jeopardy player of all time. No one else needs to apply because he is definitely the perfect host for the show. It's like he was slowly cultivated to be the host of Jeopardy over the past few decades.
