Mayim Bialik will be the first “guest host” of Season 38.
Out of reports from Culver City today, the primetime host of the show will be taping three weeks’ worth of Jeopardy! episodes this week. Taping is resuming today; these episodes should be scheduled to air September 20 through October 8.
Further guest hosts will be announced by Sony in the near future, as the search for a permanent host continues.
Editorially: The fan reaction so far on Twitter has been one of “People are reacting in a misinformed fashion” to this news. Remember that Bialik is already a part of the team, by virtue of her being tapped as the primetime host. Please, give Sony a chance to actually recover from this. There was a 0% chance of anyone other than Ken Jennings, Buzzy Cohen, or Mayim Bialik being tapped to host these episodes, by virtue of the time crunch that the show is actually under right now to get episodes in the can. Moreover, Sony’s executives, including Tony Vinciquerra (who hired the now-disgraced Mike Richards), need to be focused on ensuring Mike Richards is removed as executive producer.
