Green Bay QB Aaron Rodgers scored a victory the week of April 11th hosting “Jeopardy!”
Rodgers returned the venerable game show from its series low ratings to 5.6 million viewers. It was a 14% rebound from the mess made by Dr. Oz the prior two weeks.
But don’t get too excited. Rodgers only equaled the numbers of Katie Couric. He did not return the show to the 6 million number maintained by Ken Jennings.
Still, Rodgers recovered the show from a miserable moment. We won’t know if this carried through for his second week until next Tuesday. This week and next, Anderson Cooper is the host.
“Jeopardy!” even with 5.6 million was the number 1 syndicated game show of the week.
