Photo: JPI

In the wake of Mike Richards stepping down as the host of the syndicated-version of Jeopardy! after much controversy, comes word that Mayim Bialik will step in for him in light of the series needing a guest host asap until they figure out who ultimately will get the nod.

Bialik was already tapped to host the primetime special and spinoff versions of Jeopardy!   Mayim will host episodes taping this week and she will tape three-week’s worth of shows equaling 15 shows.

Additional guest hosts will be announced soon, since the production is moving forward with its new season with new episodes to air come mid-September.

As the turmoil continues behind the scenes at Jeopardy!, it’s yet-to-be-seen who will ultimately be the successor to the iconic game show’s late host, Alex Trebek.

So, who are you now rooting for to become the main host of the syndicated version of Jeopardy!? Comment below.

Mayim Bialik / Amy Farrah–
She was/is awesome as Amy on The Big Bang..
She’d be great hosting the Jeopardy show..
It’s a daytime broadcast show..
I don’t understand that people are home
during the day to watch that show and on broadcast..
But there are —
I’ve never watched a full Jeopardy show-
I have seen some of it when visiting at g’mas
she is a watcher of it.
It’s like a trivia show..

I’m good with this alternate decision. She did a lively, professional job. I just hope this doesn’t mean that the disastrous Dr. Oz or LeVar Burton are back in the running!

Hi Soaphound 🙂
I’ve seen that Dr. Oz ..
I was home with a broken wrist for a while..
I surfed daytime tv,,
I watched about 3-4 of his shows..
He is a Quack,, snake oil dude..
really I was stunned the FCC allowed him on the air LOL ..
Mayim Bialik is above intelligent and she has a big personality..
I believe she will do very well..

And su000, why is every new whacky, fly-by-night product he hawks all promoted the exact same way: “This product is gonna change the way you live your life forever…..details right after this” (commercial). If it’s SO life saving, why should we have to wait until after a commercial?

I know she cannot commit full-time, but I am hoping TPTB will be able to convince her it’ll be worth it. It’s usually one day a week, or so.

It would not break my heart if she became the permanent syndicated host. She got my vote in the first place.

Nancy Lee Grahn Debuted 25 Years Ago Today as General Hospital’s Alexis Davis

Back on September 26th, 1996, (25 years ago today!) the new character of Alexis Davis made her debut on ABC’s General Hospital, and brought to the iconic soap opera, the talents of Nancy Lee Grahn.

Grahn, had already made a name for herself with her captivating portrayal of lawyer Julia Wainwright Capwell on Santa Barbara for which she won a Supporting Actress Daytime Emmy in 1989, in a tie with AMC’s Debbi Morgan.

Back in April, General Hospital, marked this milestone with a special episode for Grahn, that could be remembered come next year’s Emmys.

Alexis, or shall we call her “Natasha”, was introduced on GH as the daughter of Mikkos Cassadine and his mistress, whose throat was slit by Helena Cassadine, which has played into Alexis’ story for many years to come.  At the time of her entrance to the show, Wendy Riche was GH’s executive producer.

Through the years, viewers have witnessed Grahn’s portrayal of: a tough legal eagle, an honest depiction of a woman battling the bottle, failed romances, while all the time being a loving and faithful mother to her three daughters, Sam, Molly, and Kristina.

Nancy won her second Supporting Actress Daytime Emmy, this time for her role as Alexis in 2012, and has been a multi-nominee in the Lead Actress category for her performances on the ABC daytime drama series.

Here’s to Nancy for giving us 25 years of her on-screen work as Alexis!
