It looks like Matt Lauer (yes, that Matt Lauer) (the one no one likes!) might be replacing Alex Trebek as the host of Jeopardy! once his $25-million-a-year (ugggghhhh that is so much moooneeeyyy) contract with NBC expires in 2015. Don’t believe me? Why? Why would I make up something so out of the realm of things that would benefit me? Ugh, sometimes you are just impossible. Read it from the NY Post, then:
The beleaguered host of the “Today” show is at the top of the list to take over the brainy game show when Trebek steps down, as expected, in 2016, knowledgeable sources tell The Post. …
According to sources with knowledge of the internal discussions, Sony is also strongly considering Anderson Cooper — whose contract with CNN reportedly ends next year — for the job.
But right now, Lauer’s name is at the top of the list, several sources say.
The list of JERKS?! Haha. “Right now, Lauer’s name is at the top of the list of people widely believed to be jerks. As far as his chances for Jeopardy! host go, we have no idea.” Anderson Cooper would be better, no duh, but I definitely want to doom him to a lifetime of standing in a stale room hosting Jeopardy! a lot less. What do you think? Who is your DREAM Jeopardy! host? Ted Leo? Tell meeee!
