    Jeopardy! producers are reportedly alarmed about veteran journalist Katie Couric’s anti-GOP comments ahead of her guest-hosting duties on the long-running game show. Days after Jeopardy! producers announced that Couric would assume guest-hosting duties, she appeared on Bill Maher’s show and showed support for former President Donald Trump’s impeachment and denounced Trump’s supporters as those who would need to be “deprogrammed,” the New York Post’s Page Six reported. “It is so shocking. … Not only are they not conceding, Bill, but their thoughts — that there might have been some collusion among members of Congress, some are refusing to go through magnetometers … to check for weapons. They’re not wearing masks during this siege,” Couric began.

    Katie Couric’s candid thoughts on Donald Trump’s supporters could create a sticky situation for her upcoming Jeopardy! gig, a new report indicates. The former Today co-anchor said during an appearance on Bill Maher’s show that the former president and other prominent Republicans had been spreading so many lies to his supporters that they now need to be deprogrammed. As the New York Post’s Page Six noted, Couric did not hold back in her remarks, which pointed to misinformation about the alleged voter fraud that Trump claimed cost him the election. “But I also think some of them are believing the garbage that they are being fed 24/7 on the internet, by their constituents, and they bought into this big lie,” she said. “And the question is how are we going to really almost deprogram these people who have signed up for the cult of Trump.” Though others have shared similar...

    "Jeopardy!" producers are reportedly concerned about Katie Couric's controversial comments bashing the Republican Party ahead of her planned guest-hosting duties on the long-running game show.  Last week, Couric appeared on "Real Time with Bill Maher" where she spent much of the show trashing President Trump in his final days in office. But what made headlines were her comments about Trump's backers on Capitol Hill who fueled the former president's election challenge.  "It is so shocking. ... Not only are they not conceding, Bill, but their thoughts -- that there might have been some collusion among members of Congress, some are refusing to go through magnetometers ... to check for weapons, they're not wearing masks during this siege," Couric began.

The former contestant called the experience leading the iconic game show "nerve-racking" and wishes the late Alex Trebek was still around.

    Ken Jennings has taken over as interim host of "Jeopardy!" after the passing of Alex Trebek but on Tuesday night's episode, he was trolled by a contestant. During the final "Jeopardy!" round, leading contestant Brian Chang answered a question with an incorrect response that was a burn towards Jennings. The category was business of travel, and the clue was, "Adjusted for inflation, the nightly rate this company put in its name in 1962 is now $51." The correct answer was, "What is Motel 6?" but instead Chang wrote, "What is H&R Block?" 'JEOPARDY!'

    Alex Trebek's fans have come up with a suggestion for cementing his legacy. An online petition has been created lobbying for the "Jeopardy!" stage to be dedicated to the late icon, who had hosted the iconic game show since 1984. Trebek died in November at 80 after battling cancer. The petition specifically names Sony, CBS and "Jeopardy!" in its call-to-action. "On November 8, 2020, George Alexander Trebek passed away at the age of 80 after an 18 month battle with Pancreatic Cancer. He inspired millions of his fans ever since he started hosting the syndicated version of 'Jeopardy!' in 1984 and hosted over 8,300 episodes in 37 seasons on the program," reads the Change.org petition. "His Canadian personality made the show unique and with his ability to fluently speak 17 different languages he was known internationally for his talents on television."

    LOS ANGELES (AP) — Katie Couric, Mayim Bialik and Aaron Rodgers are among the future guest hosts who will fill in for the late Alex Trebek on “Jeopardy!” The show announced Wednesday that Couric, the journalist and former “Today” show host, will become the first woman ever to host the show.
