'Jeopardy!' reveals who will succeed Alex Trebek as host

 "Jeopardy!" has ended its search for Alex Trebek's successor - and the show couldn't settle on just one person. 

On Wednesday, Sony Pictures Television announced that Mike Richards will take over as the everyday host of the trivia game show, while Mayim Bialik will head primetime and spin-off programming.

Richards is the executive producer for both "Jeopardy!" and "Wheel of Fortune," and will maintain that role in addition to the new hosting gig. Bialik has starred in shows like 'Big Bang Theory' but she also has a Ph.D. in Neuroscience. 

Bialik will host the upcoming new "Jeopardy!" college spin-off, "Jeopardy! National College Championship," which is set to begin airing on ABC next year. 

"We are thrilled to begin the next chapter of America's Favorite Quiz show with Mike hosting our daily show and Mayim hosting new versions of 'Jeopardy,'" Sony Pictures' Ravi Ahuja said in a statement. "We took this decision incredibly seriously."
