Fans of American television game show 'Jeopardy!' are not happy with host Mayim Bialik  and want her fired. Fans have a variety of complaints with Bialik, with some finding her 'unwatchable'. The 46-year-old actress took over as host of the long-running show after executive producer Mike Richards resigned as the host.

Though it was initially announced that Bialik would be a three-week guest, her contract was extended to seven weeks; later it was revealed that she would alternate with Ken Jennings for the rest of the calendar year. In December 2021, it was announced that Bialik and Jennings would continue to host Jeopardy! for the rest of the 2021–22 season.

Prior to Richards, Alex Trebek served as host of the game show's daily syndicated version from its premiere in 1984 until his death in 2020. Longtime fans of the popular game show are not happy with Bialik's hosting and have made it very clear. While some users pointed out Bialik's pausing, lack of charisma, and slow pace, others are hoping to see Jennings as the permanent host instead of alternating with the 'Big Bang Theory' star.

While one user joked, "If #Jeopardy was a restaurant... Customer: I'll have Ken Jennings. Waiter: Would Mayim Bialik be okay? Customer: Uhh, would Monopoly money be okay?" Another fumed, "OK there's a lot of dangerous awful shit going on, but meanwhile Mayim Bialik is absolutely ruining Jeopardy. Calling time before it's time, saying correct answers are wrong, and generally just being an absolute BOIL on the public ass."

Another felt, "Mayim Bialik makes Jeopardy almost unwatchable." A third added, "Incredibly, for the second day running, only one contestant gets a Final #Jeopardy that I get immediately.
