Mayim Bialik and Ken Jennings Will Continue to Split 'Jeopardy!' Hosting Duties

Variety reports that Ken Jennings and Mayim Bialik will continue to split hosting duties after Sony Pictures Entertainment entered into long-term deals

The news came shortly after after Mike Richards -- the show's former executive producer who was initially named as Alex Trebek's successor after the longtime host died in 2020

In March, Bialik spoke to ET about what an honor it is to host the program in which she's "lived season to season, since I was about 13 years old."

“I think being a female is its own mark,” she explained. “My grandparents were immigrants to this country, so I think for me, being in two generations

Bialik noted that there's no one who could replace Trebek, who hosted the show for 37 seasons from 1984 until his death in 2020

"I got to meet them when we dedicated the stage and just feel so humbled around them,” she said of Trebek's family

"Alex did not want Jeopardy! to end, the show's got tens of millions of fans, Jeopardy! needed to call somebody up and I got the letter in the mail
