I like Ken Jennings. Ken Jennings is a great host of Jeopardy. But Ken Jennings has decided to fill in for Mayim Bialik, who was taping the final week of season 39 of Jeopardy. Bialik stepped aside in solidarity with the WGA.

Unfortunately, Ken Jennings is stepping in.

It’s not because Jeopardy is unscripted television, either. They have writers. They have writers who are currently picketing. The questions they wrote, however, were written before the strike. Bialik decided to stand with the writers anyway. Jennings did not.

That’s disappointing, even to former Jeopardy contestants.
