Jeopardy! rebounded from the previous week, when CNBC's David Faber was at the lectern. For the week ending Aug. 15, the game show achieved a 5.2, a 13-week high, plus same day national household rating, per Nielsen.
This was Jeopardy!'s best week in the ratings since May 10, when CBS News' Bill Whitaker was guest hosting. It marked an 18% bump over ratings this time last year, when the late Alex Trebek was still hosting.
