Jeopardy! fans took to Twitter to discuss Ken's break from the game show.
While some people are content with Mayim serving as the temporary host, other people appeared to be upset by the announcement.
One angry viewer tweeted, “If Mayim Bialik comes back as [the] host we will not watch Jeopardy until Ken Jennings is back. She is the worst host ever."
They continued, "She really needs to go back to acting because she doesn’t know how to host. You are going to lose a lot of viewers.”
