“Jeopardy!” Has Announced Two Permanent Hosts

“Jeopardy!” announced its permanent hosts yesterday.  And yes, I said HOSTS, because there are TWO of them.  As expected, executive producer Mike Richards has been tapped as the main host.  He’ll do the regular, nightly syndicated show.

But Mayim Bialik from “The Big Bang Theory” will host primetime specials and spin-offs for ABC, including the upcoming National College Championship.

According to an official statement, “Mike is a unique talent, at ease behind the podium and a double threat as producer and host.  Mayim has a wonderful energy, an innate sense of the game, and an authentic curiosity that naturally represents the ‘Jeopardy!’ brand.

Then went on to say, “We are excited to get to work with them both and are confident that they will carry on the legacy of this iconic show.”
