The 53-year-old CNN anchor is one of the guest hosts who are filling in following the death of longtime host Alex Trebek last year.
Anderson recently talked about the phone call he received from Trebek shortly before his death.
“I got a call from him probably about a month or two before he died,” Anderson said. “He was asking me about some other stuff, but I used it as an opportunity just to say to him how much I appreciated him, and what he had brought to my life and to the life of so many people. So I was really glad I got the chance to do that.”
A lot of people are already calling for Anderson to be named the full-time host after seeing just one episode of him as the guest host. Some are even bringing up his previous work as host of The Mole!

Not a big fan of Anderson Cooper, but he’s doing one hell of a job on Jeopardy tonight

Anderson Cooper, my third favorite news personality, behind Dan Rather and Steve Kornacki, is hosting Jeopardy tonight and I’m not sad.
I am, however, concerned that being 40 means that I have a ranking of news personalities.

Anderson Cooper is hosting Jeopardy and I’m reminded what it’s like to have someone with inflection host the show!

Yes, Anderson Cooper is hosting Jeopardy right now, but can we please put some respect on his original game show hosting endeavor, The Mole.

Anderson Cooper is doing a fine job but waiting just a little too long to respond, it’s giving me edging anxiety #jeopardy
