LeVar Burton To Guest Host "Jeopardy!"


The final group of guest hosts for the 37th season of "Jeopardy!" have been announced, and LeVar Burton made the list!

There was a big push on social media to get the Reading Rainbow and Star Trek star as a guest host, and producers listened.

Burton posted on Twitter, "THANK YOU... to all y’all for your passionate support! I am overjoyed, excited, and eager to be guest-hosting Jeopardy!, and will do my utmost best to live up to your faith you in me. YOU MADE A DIFFERENCE! Go ahead and take my word for it, this time."

Ken Jennings is rumored to be the late Alex Trebek's replacement, but a there is a Change.org petition to have Burton become the permanent host which currently has over 246,000 signatures.

Burton is scheduled to host the week of July 26th, and Robin Roberts, George Stephanopoulos, David Faber, and Joe Buck were also announced as guest hosts.
