Petition to Make LeVar Burton the host of "Jeopardy

Make LeVar Burton the next host of Jeopardy!

219,355 have signed. Letís get to 300,000!



Between hosting 21 seasons of the educational Reading Rainbow, playing the brainiac engineer Geordi La Forge on Star Trek: the Next Generation, and filling the roll of Kunta Kinte in the ever important mini-series Roots, LeVar Burton has inspired and shaped the minds of several generations of trivia-loving nerds. This petition is to show Sony Pictures Entertainment Inc. and producers Mike Richards and Harry Friedman just how much love the public has for Burton, and how much we'd all love to see him as the next host of Jeopardy!

8. Signed...

I never thought about him as a host of Jeopardy until the OP, but he would be a brilliant choice. I'd watch him. I signed the petition for him.

You never know how something like this would simply make so much sense. LeVar Burton... Give him the next 30 years as the Jeopardy host. It simply makes sense for some reason. My wife and I love, love, loved Alex Trebeck, but LeVar Burton would honor him. He's a great personality. Humble, soft spoken, intelligent, smart, funny. It's a no-brainer.
