JEOPARDY! fans slammed George Stephanopoulos as the guest host.
A number of viewers took to Twitter to vow to ban the show until Robin Roberts takes over next week.
George, 60, made his debut as the guest host of Jeopardy! during Monday’s episode.
However, viewers made it clear that they are not fans of George, as they quickly took to social media to slam the Good Morning America host.
One fan wrote: “Oh, #Jeopardy. George Stephanopoulos is hosting? I just can't. I'll be back next week. Sigh!”
Another agreed, writing: “Nope! Can't watch Jeopardy for the next two weeks.”
While a following viewer called the episode “hot garbage,” another person criticized George’s hosting by writing: “My God!! Could someone get George Stephanopoulos to clear his throat and perhaps an lozenge for his dry mouth.”
After the Jeopardy! Twitter account promoted George’s hosting role, one fan commented: “Skipping these two weeks.”
However, some fans were quick to note that George will only serve as the guest host for five episodes.
George’s GMA co-anchor Robin, 60, is set to host next week’s episodes.
SEARCH FOR A NEW HOST
Robin and George are among the many guest hosts that have been brought in to lead Jeopardy! as the show searches for a replacement for longtime host Alex Trebek.
While some guest hosts have been praised by fans, others have not been met with rave reviews.
In late June, The TODAY Show host Savannah Guthrie was slammed for reading an inaccurate medical answer.
Savannah, 49, incorrectly mentioned that Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome was also known as "the Grinch syndrome" during the program.
Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome (POTS) has nothing to do with the "Grinch syndrome," and the condition also has no connection to the heart being "too small," according to myheart.net.
The nonprofit organization known as Dysautonomia International accused the ABC show of using an "offensive" term to be "funny."
The trivia game show offered an apology for using an "outdated and inaccurate term" and tweeted: "Yesterday’s program included a clue about postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome (POTS).
"After hearing from the community, we found we used an outdated and inaccurate term for this disorder, and we apologize."
