With the prospect of Anderson Cooper becoming the new host of Jeopardy!, fans have a lot to say on the matter.
He has big boots to fill, but Anderson Cooper is reportedly in talks to replace Alex the late Trebek as the new host of Jeopardy!
Alex Trebek sadly passed away last week after a battle with cancer.
Executive producer Mike Richards said.
“THIS IS AN ENORMOUS LOSS, FOR OUR STAFF, CREW, FOR HIS FAMILY, FOR HIS MILLIONS OF FANS,”
“(TREBEK) LOVED THIS SHOW, AND EVERYTHING IT STOOD FOR. IN FACT, HE TAPED HIS FINAL EPISODES LESS THAN TWO WEEKS AGO. HE WILL FOREVER BE AN INSPIRATION FOR HIS CONSTANT DESIRE TO LEARN, HIS KINDNESS AND FOR HIS LOVE OF HIS FAMILY.”
ABC news anchor George Stephanopoulos is also reportedly being considered for the role.
And this news has received mixed reactions.
Anderson Cooper or George Stephanopoulos taking over Jeopardy would be a travesty.

So Anderson Cooper may be hosting Jeopardy. As we've seen with Wolf Blitzer though, CNN anchors are not that great on the show.
