Jeopardy! really needs a comedian as host, says Olivia Craighead. "You either need someone who has professional TV hosting experience (and a personality) or you need someone who’s dry and funny and whose main job is talking to people he might not always be that interested in. Byer or Maron could turn Jeopardy! back into what (Alex) Trebek made it — a rousing game that felt more like a sporting event than a bar trivia night where three sad, lonely people showed up."
