The TV game show Jeopardy! has been around for centuries and has built a loyal following over the years, but once CNN’s Anderson Cooper appeared as a guest host on the show, very few people watched the show.
Although Cooper may be used to this after the massive viewership boycott on his news network, it still must have been a disappointment to the loyal fans.
In the show’s entire history, Cooper’s first week on the game show resulted in the lowest guest host ratings. According to Fox News, ratings fell by 7%. And, Cooper’s 5.1 ratings caused Jeopardy! to fall from the top game show spot of the week, dropping to the second spot below Family Feud, which had received a 5.5 rating.
