Ken Jennings and Mayim Bialik are hosts for the rest of the year. While he was on his winning streak, I got sick of watching him win, so I stopped watching all together. But I like him as host. Bialik is so cheerful, you've got to like her.
With the changing backdrop and music, I've stopped watching at all. I don't care about the backdrop, but music should not be irritating, it should barely be above the conscious level and not be intrusive.
I liked Ken Jennings a lot...did not like Mayim Bialik at all. I thought Mike Richards did a very good job, but not as good as Jennings. During the trials I was not a Buzzy Cohen fan, but to be honest, he did a terrific job of hosting the championship...and I would be totally fine if he eventually gets the job.
Katie Couric fit the job excellently, and I would be satisfied if she got it.
But Ken is my number 1 choice.
Whoever designed the new backdrop should be fired immediately. It is so distracting, I comment to my wife on its deficiencies each night.
