Welp, it is official.
If you are a fan of Jeopardy!, you know that the show has been having guest hosts change every week or two weeks ever since they started taping again after the death of long time and beloved host, Alex Trebek.
The ratings are officially in for when Anderson Cooper guest hosted Jeopardy last week and YIKES....not good. The ratings are 7% less than the previous lowest guest host ratings, that is back when Packers quarterback Aaron Rogers hosted the show.
Safe to say, he will not be the full time replacement when the time comes. Successful guest hosts, in terms of ratings were Katie Couric, producer of the show Mike Richards and Ken Jennings.
Nobody in Buffalo, that remembers when he mocked out Western New York and Dyngus Day on national television, has any sympathy for the guy.
It has been several years since Anderson Cooper ticked off just about everyone in Western New York after he made fun of Dyngus Day during a segment called "RidicuList". Buffalo, the Dyngus Day capital of the world, didn't appreciate the mockery Anderson was making.
A description of Dyngus Day traditions, including girls striking boys with a pussy willow branch, is what got Cooper giggling. He tried to cover it up saying that he thought his laugh was "so stupid" and not the actual event itself, but we don't buy it.
He later apologized saying that he was going to come to Buffalo to experience the massive day-after-Easter celebration here in Western New York.
P.S....he still has not.
Coming up to do hosting duties will be former contestant, Buzzy Cohen, The Big Bang Theory star Mayim Bialik, and Today show co-anchor Savannah Guthrie. Currently, 60 Minutes correspondent Bill Whitaker is filling the role of hosting duties this week and next week.
