    Lance Reddick should be given an opportunity to host Jeopardy. For those unfamiliar with him....currently he is the Host of America's Book of Secrets and he showed an outstanding performane as the Concierge of the Continental. Hotel in the movie John Wick. His personality and ease of grammar is very articulate, comfortable and relaxed JUST LIKE the Late Great Alex Trebek.

    Buzzy is the best most natural jeopardy host so far this year - he would be great as a permanent host

    Buzzy Cohen was great as Contestant, he's doing a very well as Guest Host

    Buzzy is a GREAT guest host and I like how he told the former champions how the strategy of the game was and coming from the words of a former contestant, I give Buzzy credit and he knows his stuff and it's a drag he's not guest hosting the regular-play games, because he's doing a good job and I just can't stand some of the celebrity guest hosts and even though I'm a Republican AGAINST Trump, I just don't like some of their attitudes towards the contestants when it comes to dismissing them whether they're in the red or at zero and that's the reason!

    Watching Buzzy Cohen host Jeopardy Tournament of Champions. My opinion is he is the one to replace the incomparable Alex Trebek. Excellent professional and warm, spirited presentation.

    What do you know... people like people who are "Safe" and PC. Just what a geeky show like Jeopardy! already needs: Another geek as ambassador.

    He did a great job hosting today. Unlike the other hosts that took a few days to warm up & find their rhythms, he seemed like he's been the host for years. IMO I think he should be made the new permanent host.

      Buzzy is the best host over all the others. He should get the host job permanently

    I want Buzzy to be the permanent Jeopardy host. Great charisma and energy. Love the Buzz!

    • blue33

      @Linda Fischer I guess it's different strokes. I find Buzzy to be wrong for the role of host. I've tried watching him but end up turning it off after a few minutes. The way he barks, "CORRECT!" "RIGHT!" is unnerving. For me, it's Aaron Rodgers or Mike Richards. *I would love to see them try James Holzhauer or that bartender guy (forgot his name.)

      @Kevin Chau Aaron Rodgers is BORINGGG!

      Buzzy Cohen is awesome but Aaron Rodgers should be Permanent Host of Jeopardy

      He's pretty good, but there won't be an official host until September

    Buzzy Cohen isn't a tool, he's the entire goddamn toolshed. It's painful to watch anything including him as a contestant, let alone as a host.

  • Riley Hun

    I honestly didn't really like Buzzy from the beginning, but starting to warm up to him. He was also a good captain in the All Stars Games. Still would have preferred Ken to be the host of the ToC and eventually permanent host.

    This video has me smiling! Something tells me that he’ll easily become one of my top 3 choices for the permanent host. Knock it out of the park, Buzzy!

  • theR0nin

    Looking forward to watching! The other guest hosts have been too reserved, too controlled, too hesitant to be themselves. I bet Buzzy won't have that problem!

    • theR0nin

      @JPuga I'm not thinking of how much they talk, but of _how_ they talk. A host should strive to speak confidently and naturally IMO. BTW I feel Buzzy is doing better in that regard than others have, but still has room for improvement.

    • JPuga

      But then everyone hated katie couric for rambling

    I still haven't forgotten the 2017 Tournament of Champions when Austin, Alan, and Buzzy made Johnny Gilbert laugh at the end of his introduction, especially when Alex joined in on the fun. And Alex was right: it's contagious! I loved that intro.
