Sony TV could not bring itself to declare a winner in the “Jeopardy!” host competition.
Word today is that beginning in September nothing will change. Ken Jennings and Mayim Bialik will continue to split hosting duties regardless of their respective ratings or popularity.
Jennings seemed like the obvious choice to be named permanent host. His ratings are better, and core “Jeopardy!” fans like him.
But Bialik has her fans. And Sony is frightened of insulting any group or turning anyone off. So as in most of TV taking no stance is the best way to go.
Hey– it’s certainly better than having revolving hosts from all over the place. It’s a win-win. Congrats to all contestants!
