    Ken Jennings should be the next host. Great voice, calm, upbeat, polite. Didn't understand Dr Oz a few times and did not like his rude comments!

      If you do it in the Jeopardy! round, your response will be accepted but you will be reminded to remember your phrasing. In the Double Jeopardy! round, the response is not accepted. Final Jeopardy! nowadays has contestants write “Who is/What is” during the break.

    This was the best way Ken could honor Alex. He voiced what we all were feeling, he made clear he knew no one could replace Alex, and he kept it short and went into the game because he remembered that Alex always said the contestants, not the host, are the stars of Jeopardy!. I'm sure this is how Alex would want to be remembered.

    I am not someone who watches this show regularly, but when I do catch it, it's quite a treat. I think you really should keep Jennings on as the long time host. And forget putting Doctor Oz in any role of authority or knowledge, that is just unacceptable.

    Is Ken perfect? No. Is he Alex? No. But he's a great host, will get better and grow with the viewers, and probably the current best choice. But please Jeopardy, I beg of you, do not let that awful bitch katie couric host this. She is mean spirited person who will kill the ratings and destroy this great show.

    I didn’t like the guy because of his past statements he made. But he has apologized for them and has owned up for them. His tribute to Alex was beautiful. If he is going to be the next Jeopardy host, honestly, I’m good with it. He’s done a great job as the host. He should be the guy.

      about as close as it ever gets, I mean short of Alex coming back from the dead, Ken Jennings is probably the next best option (someone who was a legendary player during Alex's era, became his friend and is probably the second biggest Jeopardy Icon)
