Anderson Cooper's Son Watching Him On TV For The First Time Is Super Sweet

While the rest of the nation can see CNN’s Anderson Cooper on their TVs most evenings, his son, Wyatt Morgan, just got his first peep this week. The veteran news anchor shared a picture Monday night of his baby boy, who turns 1 this month, watching Dad guest host “Jeopardy!” “Wyatt has never seen me on tv before, and he likely won’t for a long while, but apparently he caught a bit of me on @Jeopardy!” Cooper wrote on Instagram.  He said it was a dream come true to guest host the show, pay tribute to the late host Alex Trebek, and to raise funds for Hôpital Albert Schweitzer.

Aaron Rodgers Shares The Sticky Notes That Kept Him In Check On ‘Jeopardy!’

Aaron Rodgers was on top of his game guest-hosting “Jeopardy!” thanks to a bunch of well-placed sticky notes. The Green Bay Packers quarterback this week shared photographs on Instagram of his lectern on the set of the game show, covered in reminders to relax, stand up straight, slow down while reading the clues and speak less. But one of the notes stood out:  “Don’t pick your nose/butt.” Rodgers said it was “just to check if anyone was looking at my podium between games.” And it turned out, he said, that “John the stage manager was, and we had a good laugh about it.” Check out the notes here: View this post on Instagram A post shared by Aaron Rodgers (@aaronrodgers12) Download Disclaimer: If you need to update/edit/remove this news or arti...

Aaron Rodgers Hilariously Shames 'Jeopardy!' Contestants For Green Bay Packers Fail

“Jeopardy!” guest host Aaron Rodgers took a sports-clue fail personally on the game show Tuesday. None of the three contestants could answer the “TITLES” category clue: “In the 1960s these Midwesterners earned 5 NFL Championship trophies.” “Green Bay Packers?” Rodgers asked in mock annoyance. Rodgers, of course, is the current quarterback of the Packers, having guided them to the NFC Championship game last season. He then told one of the players to “go again, I guess.” The exchange set up another funny moment when Erick Loh, who eventually won the game, correctly responded to a clue about the Boston Celtics in the same category. “Oh, you know that one, uh?” Rodgers said. Another priceless Aaron Rodgers @Jeopardy moment. The contestants couldn’t come up with the answer of Packers in the fi...

Aaron Rodgers Teases 'Jeopardy!' Contestants for Missing Green Bay Packers Question

Aaron Rodgers isn't afraid to get playful as a guest host on Jeopardy! During Tuesday's new episode, the NFL star couldn't help but tease the night's contestants after they missed a sports question that was close to his heart. The fun moment came after Rodgers read a $400 clue: "In the 1960s these Midwesterners earned 5 NFL Championship Trophies." After an awkwardly long silence with no one ringing in, the "time's up" buzzer rang out and Rodgers threw up his hands in disbelief, revealing the correct answer was, in fact, his own team -- the Green Bay Packers."Dennis, go again, I guess," a faux-insulted Rodgers told one of the contestants, who proceeded to pick from the same sports category. The $600 clue read, "They swept over the NBA, winning the title every year from 1959 to 1966."Contest...

'Jeopardy!' Contestant Trolls Guest Host Aaron Rodgers With Green Bay Packers Ding

Aaron Rodgers was amusingly reminded of a controversial Green Bay Packers moment during his debut as guest host of “Jeopardy!” In the episode that aired Monday, Packers quarterback Rodgers asked contestants to identify the daytime TV personality who when accepting a Lifetime Achievement Emmy had said “just take... 10 seconds to think of the people who have helped you become who you are.” The answer is Mr. Rogers. But one contestant, Scott, cheekily wrote, “Who wanted to kick that field goal?” ― referring to that call during the Packers’ NFC Championship clash against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Rodgers chuckled at the gag. “That is a great question, should be correct,” he responded. “But unfortunately for this game today, that’s incorrect.” Watch the clip here: Rodgers later reflected on t...

The NFL star donned a nice suit and stood behind the podium to host Monday's Jeopardy!, but not before honoring the legacy of the late gameshow icon. The 37-year-old quarterback came out at the top of the show, and made sure to share a sweet memory of Trebek, from when Rodgers won Celebrity Jeopardy! in 2015. "As a lifelong fan of Jeopardy! it is an incredible honor to guest host," Rodgers said at the start of the episode.
