Kent Syverson letter: Let the 'Jeopardy' hosts prove their worth
Summary: Letter writer backs new 'Jeopardy' hosts
There's a rumor going around that not everybody is happy with Mayim Bialik as the current host of "Jeopardy!"
I'm not surprised.
Ken Jennings has also hosted the show from time to time. I haven't heard anything about him yet, but it wouldn't surprise me if some people weren't happy with him.
And no wonder. They are both being compared to the late Alex Trebek.
I remember the original "Jeopardy!" back when it was hosted by Art Fleming.
When Trebek started hosting the current version, he was probably being compared to Fleming.
It wouldn't surprise me if some people thought, "What? No way!" But Trebek proved his worth.
He continued to host the show until three weeks before his death, according to the media.
The producers of "Jeopardy!" did the right thing, by bringing in a variety of guest hosts to finish the season.
Bialik and Jennings both won the rights to host the show. Alex Trebek is gone now. It's impossible to bring him back. Let the current hosts prove their worth.
