Ken Jennings Congratulates ‘Jeopardy!’ Team Win for Game Show Emmy

Host Ken Jennings is happy to show its support for “Jeopardy!” crew.

On Friday, the 2022 National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences (NATAS) Daytime Emmy Awards were presented in an in-person ceremony. The event, which aired on CBS, was hosted by Entertainment Tonight’s Kevin Frazier and Nischelle Turner. Their show actually won the award for best entertainment news series.

“General Hospital” won big at the 2022 Daytime Emmys!

ABC’s “General Hospital” was the big winner of the night with five wins for Best Drama Series, Supporting Actor (Jeff Kober), Actress (Kelly Thiebaud) and Young Performer (Nicholas Chavez) in a drama series, and the show’s writing staff.

But “Danger! fans were thrilled to see “Jeopardy!” win the outstanding game show award on “Family Feud”, “Let’s Make A Deal”, “The Price is Right”, and “Wheel of Fortune”. Neither Ken Jennings nor his co-host Maim Bialik were nominated for Best Game Show Host. Sony has yet to decide who will become the show’s next permanent host, but a decision is expected in late July or early August.

Ken Jennings praises “Jeopardy!” Staff for a big win!

After the win, Ken Jennings took to Twitter to joke, “Don’t call it a comeback! Kudos to the hardworking team at @Jeopardy.

Here is the full list of winners below, as reported by The Hollywood Reporter.
