I think it just began as one of those internet things probably started because he won a Jeopardy Celebrity Tournament once. IMO, he did an OK job but nothing special.I haven't watched "Jeopardy" in years.
Can someone PLEASE explain the LeVar Burton obsession some folks have on this issue?
Is it a race thing ("we want a black guy to host the show")? Is it something else?
Is it his fame from "Roots"?
I didn't watch it, but every single review I read from fans of the show and even of him said Burton was awful. Now there's a cult following almost that seems to want him to get the job now (a small but apparently loud group).
Oh, and I didn't even need to see Joe Buck to know how THAT would go. Another member of the Lucky Sperm club.
