The show “Jeopardy!” continues even after the long-time host Alex Trebek passed away in November.

As a result, the program has yet to name a permanent host and is seeing a rotation of guest hosts. Next on the list of guest who will host the show is CNN’s Anderson Cooper and NBC News’ Savannah Guthrie.

Each guest host appearing this season will have a donation made to the charity of their choice. Furthermore, the amount will be equivalent to the cumulative winnings of all of the contestants who compete on the show when they serve as a host, a press release stated.

“We look forward to each guest host bringing their unique abilities to the show and to our contestants winning a lot of money that we can match for charity,” the show’s executive producer Mike Richards said. Along with Cooper and Guthrie will have other guest hosts such as Mehmet Oz of “The Doctor Oz Show,” CNN chief medical correspondent Sanjay Gupta, journalist Katie Couric, Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers, “60 Minutes” correspondent Bill Whitaker, and neuroscientist Mayim Bialik.

Over the past couple of months, those close to former President Donald Trump or within the administration are writing books documenting their time with the politician. Former New Jersey governor Chris Christie is one of those who recently published a book. 

However, one person who won’t read Christie’s book is “The View’s” Ana Navarro. During a segment centered around Mark Meadows’ (Trump’s former Chief of Staff) new book. Meadows revealed that Trump reportedly tested positive for COVID well before his diagnosis was made public. 

Nonetheless, Navarro took a snipe at all those associated with Trump trying to profit new with books. “Yes, another former Trump accomplice writing a tell-all book now, which I will not buy,” Navarro said

She then transitioned her attention to Christie, whose book sales didn’t do so well for its opening week it sold less than 3,000 copies which constitutes a colossal publishing flop,” something Trump mocked

“No, I’m thinking just how much I relish the fact that these former Trumpers, who are now pretending not to be, can’t sell their books,” Navarro stated. “My dog has more Instagram followers than books sold by Chris Christie.”

Hulu Pulls KTRK’s News Special on the Astroworld Tragedy

After a day of premiering on Hulu, there was plenty of social media backlash due to the tragic event occurring less than a month ago.

Streaming platform Hulu decided to yank a documentary over the Astroworld concert tragedy produced by ABC-affiliate KTRK in Houston. 

The 50-minute news special called “Astroworld: Concert From Hell” documents the “minute-by-minute look at what happened in the crowd, the young victims who were killed, and what happens next.”

However, after a day of premiering on Hulu, there was plenty of social media backlash due to the tragic event occurring less than a month ago, resulting in the streaming outlet pulling it from its library. 

“Hulu removed it because it was improperly branded to make it appear as if it was a Hulu original when it was not. It had previously aired on KTRK on Nov. 20,” wrote TheWrap after talking with a source close to the matter. 

During Travis Scott’s Astroworld performance on Nov. 3 at NRG Park, a crowd surge caused a frenzy and left some people crushed or with cardiac arrest. 

More than 50,000 people attended the festival, leading to more than 300 people going to the field hospital for treatment, and at least ten people have died. As of now, more than 100 lawsuits have been filed on behalf of victims.
