From “Blossom” to “The Big Bang Theory” to “Jeopardy!”
Mayim Bialik was chosen to record three weeks as the game show’s temporary host after Mike Richards was ousted.
Bialik had previously been selected as a host for specials and spinoffs. She was thought to have no time for regular hosting because she is involved in the second season of her Fox sitcom, “Call Me Kat”.
But it looks like she succeeded. A week of âJeopardy! Tapes in one day, so that’s three working days for Bialik, which is equivalent to three weeks. And who knows? Maybe the two shows will complement each other and raise each other’s ratings.
Richards recorded two weeks of shows before he was forced to step down, so those shows will air first, then Mayim’s shows will follow. “Danger!” says there will be more hosts to come. Maybe they’ll give Laura Coates and Alex Faust shots as well.
