Mayim Bialik has brought stability during her brief tenure as co-host of Jeopardy! in the wake of Alex Trebek's 2020 death. Before she took the reins, the situation behind the scenes had become turbulent with frustration over some of the controversial guest hosts and then executive producer Michael Richards naming himself permanent host, only to be fired soon afterwards. Lots of changes.

And now fans are worried Bialik is trying to change their sacred game show once more.

Traditionally, the opening round of the game is simply called “Jeopardy!,” but on Thursday, Bialik referred to it as “Single Jeopardy!” in both the regular gameshow and the National College Championship, which made many viewers surprisingly agitated.

#jeopardy @missmayim It is NOT single Jeopardy!! It is the Jeopardy round. Please don't keep calling it that.

@missmayim #Jeopardy You make my brain hurt when you say "Single Jeopardy." Jeopardy has had enough change - stop trying to reinvent it please!

This wasn’t the first time Bialik has used the term. In fact, there appears to be growing frustration on the part of the fans as more and more notice the new moniker.

Me: “Alright, maybe I’ll give Mayim Bialik another chance.”

Mayim: “That sound means it’s the end of Single Jeopardy.”

While the majority of the tweets about “Single Jeopardy!” are negative, there are a few out there who think the whole fuss is just rubbish.
