Game show

The Emmy-winning quiz show features a unique answer-and-question format.

Matt Roush says...

The greatest quiz show ever returns under a cloud for its 38th season, marred by a scandalously botched recruitment process for a permanent host to replace the iconic Alex Trebek. The show is trumpeting the return of 18-game champion Matt Amodio—who has polarized some viewers with his tendency to use “what” for every answer—a Ph.D. student whose $574,801 bank places him third behind only Ken Jennings and James Holzhauer in regular-season winnings and currently ranks fifth for consecutive games won. Missing in Jeopardy!’s announcement is any mention of Mike Richards, the disgraced and ousted executive producer who was initially chosen to host the show and taped the first week before being fired. All of which makes Amodio a godsend for Jeopardy! for as long as he holds on, attracting some positive attention during one of the show’s darkest periods.
