Washington, US - September 29, ANI : Actor Mayim Bialik recently discussed her new gig as the interim host of 'Jeopardy!' alongside Ken Jennings for the remainder of this season.According to Fox News, Sony Pictures Television had previously confirmed that Bialik will host several weeks of shows that will air through November 5. After that, she and Jennings will split hosting duties as their respective schedules allow while the show looks for a permanent replacement for Alex Trebek after Mike Richards was forced to step down.The former 'Big Bang Theory' star appeared on 'The Late Late Show with James Corden' on Tuesday where she discussed the immense public interest the hunt for a new 'Jeopardy!' host has amassed. Speaking to the late-night host, she noted that she wants to avoid the behind-the-scenes drama and simply do right by the fans when she's on-screen.She said, "Who knew that people were so passionate about the host of 'Jeopardy! I mean, I'm just trying to read the clues, you know? Just let me read the clues!"Despite the immense public interest in who the new host of 'Jeopardy!' will be, Bialik made her way to the podium with relatively little fanfare. When Trebek died in November of 2020, she was among the first celebrity guest hosts to take over the show. She was largely considered a fan favourite but did not really campaign for herself the way that some other guest hosts did.
