While the initial news of Dr. Mehmet Oz guest-hosting for the next two weeks generated criticism last month, the reality of him hosting via a Jeopardy! promo released today generated renewed outrage. As Variety TV critic Daniel D'Addario put it: "Alex Trebek's final episodes gave us a moving, frank look at a real-life health crisis, endured with grace and no little difficulty. These were challenging and honest. Dr. Oz, by contrast, has suggested that drinking green tea with turmeric can prevent pancreatic cancer."
