Jeopardy! Ratings Soar With Rodgers

By Adam Roberts – 4/22/2021

Answer: This weekly quiz show saw a noted spike in its ratings when a sometimes mustachioed quarterback served as a guest host.

What is Jeopardy!?

Jeopardy! was apparently in good hands with Aaron Rodgers calling the signals (and that’s not an Allstate pun, we all now Rahdgahs is aligned with State Farm). The game show’s Nielsen ratings jumped up 14-percent in the Green Bay Packers’ quarterback first week as the guest host. Ratings for the show had been declining with guests hosts after the death of Alex Trebek. Rodgers changed that as Jeopardy moved back into the top slot among syndicated game shows.

Anderson Cooper is now at the podium, followed by Bill Whitaker, Mayim Bialik, and Savannah Guthrie.
