CNN’s Anderson Cooper Guest Hosts On Jeopardy! Game Show – Flops In The Ratings

CNN’s Anderson Cooper recently guest hosted on the iconic TV game show Jeopardy! but very few people tuned in to watch.

As a host on CNN, Anderson is probably used to this, but it still must have been a disappointment.

This probably means he won’t be asked to take over the show permanently.

Anderson Cooper’s ‘Jeopardy!’ debut flops, draws lowest guest host ratings in show’s history

CNN host Anderson Cooper’s first week as the “Jeopardy!” guest host pulled in lower ratings than any other guest host in the history of the show.

Ratings reportedly fell by 7% during Anderson’s first week, claiming the lowest debut for any of the Sony game show’s guest hosts, according to The Wrap.

The iconic game show lost its longtime emcee, Alex Trebek, in November after he died following a battle with pancreatic cancer. He was 80 years old at the time. Until a permanent host is announced by Sony Pictures Television, interim hosts have been stepping in.

The Wrap reported that Cooper’s 5.1 rating dropped “Jeopardy!” out of the top game show spot that week, falling behind “Family Feud,” which pulled in a 5.5 rating.

Cooper’s score was just below Dr. Oz’s 5.2 rating during his own debut week, which had previously been considered the lowest score for a “Jeopardy!” guest host. Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers began with a 5.6, but drew a 5.5 rating his second week.

How awkward…

Cooper is going to have to stick to not being watched on CNN. Oh well.
