Mike Richards & Mayim Bialik to Split 'Jeopardy' Hosting Duties

It’s official: Jeopardy has two new hosts!

Mike Richards and Mayim Bialik will both be taking on hosting duties for the famed quiz show.

Mike will be hosting each of the daily shows, while Mayim will be taking on primetime and spin-off specials, like Jeopardy! National College Championship, set to air on ABC in 2022.

“We are thrilled to begin the next chapter of America’s Favorite Quiz Show with Mike hosting our daily show and Mayim hosting new versions of Jeopardy!,” Ravi Ahuja, Chairman of Global Television Studios and Corporate Development for Sony Pictures, said in a statement. “We took this decision incredibly seriously. A tremendous amount of work and deliberation has gone into it, perhaps more than has ever gone into the selection of hosts for a show – deservedly so because it’s Jeopardy! and we are following the incomparable Alex Trebek. A senior group of Sony Pictures Television executives pored over footage from every episode, reviewed research from multiple panels and focus groups, and got valuable input from our key partners and Jeopardy! viewers.”
