Host Mayim Bialik is reportedly withdrawing from “Jeopardy!” recordings for the remainder of the season


Ken Jennings, the show’s other host, will replace her in the final episodes of the season, which the broadcaster said will be taped May 16-19 on Sony.

“Danger!” uses Writers Guild of America writers demonstrating over pay and working conditions. The show notes were written well before the union’s May 2 strike began, Deadline reported.

“Our words are on the screen every night,” “Jeopardy!” writer Michele Loud recently told Variety. “Without writers there is no ‘Jeopardy’. Without us, it’s just a blank blue screen.”

HuffPost did not immediately receive a response from representatives from Jeopardy! or Bialik.

Bialik, who also starred recently cancelled The final block of episodes of the sitcom Call Me Kat was scheduled to take place before the summer break.

The joint hosting agreement between Bialik and Jennings became permanent this season after a tumultuous search for a replacement for late host Alex Trebek.

Producer Mike Richards briefly held the job, but resigned in August 2021 after racist and sexist comments came to light.
