Ken Jennings had a nice tribute to Alex. I think he did a good job for his first episode. Any other watchers?

Not on yet here. I was kind of dreading it without Alex Trebek.

I saw it a little while ago. Ken sounded like he was kind of holding back tears which I completely understand. I can't imagine that was easy for him.

Ken Jennings hasn't been a very nice man. I hope he has changed or that he is not the regular replacement because I thought Alex Trebek was a real class act. Ken has said some awful things about disabled people and others.

Another no on Ken Jennings.

I am with Happygirl. I am not a fan. He came out and apologized last week for some tweets that he thought "were funny" but in retrospect, were offensive. I think he only did it because he wants to be Alex's replacement.

Missing Alex Trebek. Jennngs comments were good, I thought. He was OK, just OK I thought.

Here’s apologized more than once.

Can you imagine how incredibly difficult it would be to be the first person to follow Alex in hosting Jeopardy?

I think people should extend him some grace and be less judgemental.

Amen! I miss the days when mistakes weren’t preserved for posterity and used as battering rams.

It's sounds like they will be trying out several guest hosts before deciding on the official replacement.

I am glad he apologized, and I hope he is better for it. It really hit home some of the hurtful things he said so maybe I am just too close to it to be objective.

They are hard shoes to fill, but I don't think KJ is it.
