The Associated Press reports:
“Jeopardy!” is back to guest hosts after the resignation of Mike Richards, and actor Mayim Bialik will return as the first one up. Sony Pictures Television announced Monday that Bialik will take the podium long occupied by the late Alex Trebek for three weeks of episodes.
When Richards was announced as the new host on Aug. 11, producers also revealed that Bialik would have an ongoing role as emcee for “Jeopardy!” prime-time and spinoff series, including a new college championship.
Sony’s news release Monday said other guest hosts would follow Bialik and made no mention of a permanent replacement. The episodes that Richards taped last week will air when the show returns for its 38th season starting Sept. 13.
