New 'Jeopardy!' season begins with ousted host Mike Richards, viewers react

Richards, 46, was famously named as the show’s permanent host this summer after an exhaustive search for 亚历克斯·特雷贝克’s replacement.

It wasn’t long, 然而, 直到 丑闻 arose, and comments Richards previously made during a podcast – as well as accusations of poor workplace conduct – took headlines by storm.

After a few weeks, Richards stepped down as host but was set to remain an executive producer on the show – a position which he filled before being cast. 然而, continued backlash forced Sony and Richards to part ways completely, and he will no longer serve as either host or executive producer.

Richards had pre-taped five episodes of “危险!” before stepping down as host – which equates to about a day’s worth of filming, 根据 今天.

There are no retakes or re-shoots in the world of game shows, as any kind of re-do would allow for a different result to occur, and in a high-stakes game like “危险!,” that simply isn’t an option.

Richards will appear in five episodes – which will likely all air sequentially this week – before the show is once again without a permanent captain.
