We asked folks across the industry about who should be the next Jeopardy host. Here’s what they had to say.
SVP, Original Programming
TBS, TNT, truTV
“● Triumph the Insult Comic Dog – I think he brings the kind of warmth and understanding that contestants are used to and America wants to invite into their homes.
● Tom Brady – There’s got to be something he’s not good at!
● Morgan Freeman – I could listen to him say ‘may I have that in the form of a question?’ all day.”
“Samuel L. Jackson would be an ideal host for ‘Jeopardy,’ if for no other reason than to hear him quote Ezekiel before chastising a contestant for not giving the answer in the form of a question. Also, as he has shown throughout his career, he can wax philosophical on almost anything, and really isn’t that what you want in a host?”

“Levar Burton deserves to be the new host of Jeopardy. It seems only right that a figure head who is known for focusing on the importance of education and children’s literacy would be the person to fill the late Alex Trebek’s shoes. Not to mention Levar executed a great social media campaign that outlined all the reasons why he should be the no brainer choice, which was greatly received by people far and wide. “
