Seems like this Mike Richards guy is a bit of a jerk, he’s basically been angling for the hosting job, any hosting job, for years, and he rigged to competition.
Also, he totally screwed over Ken Jennings.

I hear Mother Theresa was unavailable.   ;)

Seriously...had Rodgers or Burton gotten the gig...people would be coming out of the woodwork to go after them too...for whatever...and who knows what Jennings has in his closet?

That said...I'm guessing this guys tenure will be cancelled before the sun goes down...

Jennings already apologized for past controversial statements.

Just hire Joe Rogan and be done with it.

If he comes accross as a jerk, the show won't last. A likable host who can fade away into the background makes the show work

at first, when folks said Mike Richards would host, I thought of Michael Richards (Cosmo Kramer).  I know he  had some questionable improv at one of his club appearances.  This stuff with the new host sounded like up his alley.   Maybe Mike thought his remarks would get attributed to Cosmo.

The actor who played Kenny Banya should get the nod.

Watched AEW's PPV tonight. If any of you were fans of wrestling in the 90's/00's Monday night wars / attitude era, AEW has brought back that level of programming.

I can live with that for now.  What an ordeal this has all turned into.

Or how badly the entire process was conceived and executed.

I think Trebek would have been happy with Ken. He left his cuff links and a personal note for him right before he died.

It’s clear to me the Mike Richards really wanted to be on TV and basically rigged it to get what he wanted. And it would have worked if he hadn’t done that stupid podcast. Why he felt the need to even do a podcast is something beyond my comprehension.

Attention whore does podcast, seeking attention. News at 11. I agree, anyone with half a brain probably would not have made the choices he did.

I wanted it to be him, but he was just too excitable.  Not sure if nerves, overcompensating or what, but I wish he'd had another week to work it out (not sure why he got short-changed)

Alright I have to know - why?

Has any come over to my way of thinking on Matt Amodio on Jeopardy? I.e. that he is as annoying as F—-.
