Anderson Cooper’s Jeopardy ratings are the worst of all the guest hosts who come under Dr. Oz fall

Anderson Cooper had a tough job following Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers during his two-week Jeopardy guest-host stint, and the ratings showed.

The 53-year-old CNN anchor began his guest hosting stint on April 19, with ratings for that first week dropping to a 5.1, the lowest rating of any Jeopardy guest host, according to The Wrap.

The ratings would also be affected by extensive daytime coverage of Derek Chauvin’s murder trial on April 19 and 20, the latest of which was when the guilty verdict was announced.

The 5.1 rating also dropped Jeopardy from the top spot for game shows, with Family Feud taking over with a 5.5 rating.

Cooper’s 5.1 rating comes just below the 5.2 rating that Dr. Oz placed in his debut week, which was previously the lowest guest host hue

Cooper’s predecessor Rodgers achieved a strong score of 5.6 in his first week and a score of 5.5 in his second week.

The highest ratings of all guest hosts drawn up after longtime host Alex Trebek passed away came from the first guest host, former Jeopardy champion Ken Jennings.

Jennings achieved a 6.2 rating in its first week, but a slight dip in its second week with a 5.9 rating.

Trebek’s last week of hosting received a rating of 6.6, with the last episode drawing 14 million viewers, the most viewership in over a year.

Jennings was followed by Jeopardy executive producer Mike Richards and Katie Couric, whose second week marked the first time the show fell to second place.

60 Minutes’ Bill Whitaker started his first week of guest hosting on Monday, and he will be followed by former contestant Buzzy Cohen, Mayim Bialik and Savannah Guthrie.

The last guest hosts are Dr. Sanjay Gupta, Joe Buck, George Stephanopoulos, Robin Roberts, David Faber and LeVar Burton, who will close the current season.

Richards has said they have not yet made a decision on who will take over as regular host next season.

Even before he was named as the final guest host, there was a strong grassroots movement to get Burton to host.

Fans even started one Change.org petition to have the show’s producers name Burton as the permanent host, who has more than 250,000 signatures.
