Mike Richards Out: “Jeopardy!” Should Alternate Between Ken Jennings and LeVar Burton


Mike Richards is out at Jeopardy. No one is surprised. The staff didn’t like him, neither did the viewers. After all the revelations, Sony TV should completely remove him.

So now what? More guest hosts? No thank you. That’s enough. Let Ok en Jennings and LeVar Burton a alternate two weeks at a time. The fans want them. Sony TV has to grow up now and end this saga.

What a mess. Alex Trebek and Merv Griffin would be horrified at the incompetence.
