    I like Jennings the best of the 3, but initially all have poor timing when it comes to telling contestants that they got the right answer on certain questions.

    I think the reason I liked Katie, was because as a female she was so completely different from Alex I didn't feel like she was trying to mimic him. Ken definitely got better as he went along and I liked Mike although I can see that people might think he's a little smarmy.

    I didn't mind Katie Couric's delivery, but I felt like sometimes the shows dragged. There were weirdly long pauses sometimes between the contestants giving an answer, and Katie answering in the affirmative / negative so we could move on.

    The next two guest hosts are very much "....nope" so looking forward to Anderson Cooper in a month.

    Quick review ... handled the transitions poorly but was smoother than Katie already. He also did the player interviews without note cards.

    A pox on Oprah’s house... she made those charlatans (Oz and Phil) household names.

    I just don't like Dr Oz, whether it's on Jeopardy or on anything else

    Aaron Rodgers is pretty good so far. A little understated, but not bad at all.
