A general view on the set of the "Jeopardy!" Million Dollar Celebrity Invitational Tournament Show Taping on April 17, 2010 in Culver City, California.
This is JEOPARDY!  Alex Trebek passed away in 2020, and Jeopardy fans haven’t stopped complaining.

They’ve had a lot to say about Mayim Bialik and Ken Jennings, who have been sharing hosting duties over the past few months. This past week they were named the permanent hosts of the show.

Many were happy with the news, but others were definitely not. And they made it known by announcing it on Twitter with the hashtag #BoycottJeopardy. Ahhh – social media!

One fan wrote, “Will not be watching Jeopardy until Ken Jennings becomes the primary and only host. This switching stuff sucks! #BoycottJeopardy…  they have idiots running it. What a mess,” Another tweeted, “No one is thrilled to see Mayim co-hosting at all, if you’d listen to the people most of us preferred Ken as the full-time host over Mayim …when viewership goes down when Mayim hosts &  goes up with Ken you guys will regret the co-host crap.”

Mayim has her own fans who aren’t thrilled she is sharing duties with Jennings. One said, “Mayim is way better… Ken isn’t a public speaker let alone a TV host. Trivia and Twitter nerds are the only Jeopardy viewers that prefer Ken…” Another wrote, “I think she’s funny & cute & I love when she walks out! I love to look at her outfits and her hair I think she’s amazing!! And I don’t understand all the hate for her!!”

Not everyone is upset though. One viewer is team Mayim and Team Ken:  “This is a winning hosting team that Alex Trebek would be so proud of.”

When the new season of Jeopardy premieres next month, Ken Jennings will be hosting. He’ll continue hosting through the end of the year. In January, Mayim will be back as host.

Jeopardy is an iconic show, and I think the most important thing is that it is still on the air. It could have easily gone away with Alex Trebek. Our grandparents watched it, our parents watched it, and WE watch it. Can we just be grateful about this one simple thing, and stop being so petty? #firstworldproblems
