Yeah in a short time Mayim has turned into a pretty great host. When I turn it on and see Jennings I'm not excited to watch it. They created a problem with this split hosts thing because people are going to naturally compare them.

And I noticed when announced, Ken Jennings get “hosting Jeopardy…” while Bialik gets “now you’re host of Jeopardy…” What’s that about?

I'm the opposite. I much prefer Ken.

So far, they've only listed them as sharing the duties, but also mentioned something about Bialik hosting specials (tournaments?)

Mayim was already announced as one of two new hosts of Jeopardy (along with Mike Richards) earlier this year, so she gets to be "the host of Jeopardy". Ken is currently only guest hosting Jeopardy while the producers are still trying to figure out what they're going to do permanently, so he only gets "hosting Jeopardy".

Ken is not an EP, as you mentioned earlier. He is only a consulting producer. I do like both Ken and Mayim hosting, and I have to imagine Ken is a front-runner at this point. I hope they just continue split hosting duties.

Amy is on fire. Yesterday was the rare time where it wasn't decided before FJ, but no problem for her. She's 4th in wins all-time.

My wife and I much prefer Mayim.

Ken really, really likes Amy. He's praising her constantly. I don't know why he even bothers introducing the other contestants, he might as well just say "good luck to our two losers for today - ok Amy, let's go!"

Screw those people. She's an icon for trans representation and the women of Jeopardy have been showing their support for her. It's kinda silly that anybody thinks about sex segregated records in a competition that isn't sex segregated anyway. Keep laughing all the way to the bank, Amy!

Even not getting the three daily doubles couldn't stop Amy from kicking ass!

Amy was given a pass today on a bad answer. She should have been required to answer with the name of the party, instead of just being allowed to say "blue and white".

I don't really remember the question or the answer, but isn't the party in question called "Blue and White?"

Watching Amy is as boring as watching Matt, although at least Amy is willing to do a category at a time (I complained heavily about Matt's hopscotching to find DDs), so I'll just have to live with it.

I thought the Sarah Jessica Parker/Ethel Merman Broadway title character one was pretty easy.
