Unfortunately for Jeopardy! and the Jeopardy! team, the news of the producer getting the job was not met with the warmest reception from fans of the beloved game show. Many had criticized the idea of having a revolving team of celebrities essentially auditioning for the job, only for an executive producer to seemingly give himself the job. A look into Richards’ past that was brought to light in the press further damaged his reputation, and now he’s already out as Jeopardy!’s new host.

“It pains me that these past incidents and comments have cast such a shadow on Jeopardy! as we look to start a new chapter,” Richards wrote in a statement announcing that he’s resigned. “As I mentioned last week, I was deeply honored to be asked to host the syndicated show and was thrilled by the opportunity to expand my role. However, over the last several days it has become clear that moving forward as host would be too much of a distraction for our fans and not the right move for the show. As such, I will be stepping down as host effective immediately. As a result, we will be canceling production today.”

At this time, Jeopardy! will halt production as the search for a new permanent host begins. For now, the game show will see the return of guest hosts so production on the current season can continue without Richards at the podium. New details about the guest hosts will be announced next week, so it’s unclear if fan favorite Jeopardy! and others who served previously will be back for another round as guest hosts.

The cannonball that appears to have sunk Richards’ ship was a report published by The Ringer on Wednesday detailing conversations he’d had on a podcast in 2013-14. Hoping to keep his role as Jeopardy! host, Richards publicly apologized soon after, noting he had “substantial and serious obligations as a role model” to live up to now that he had gotten such a high profile job. Richards must be disappointed in how his brief role as host played out, but the good news for him is that he will remain with the show in his role as executive producer.

In a new statement after Richards resigned, Sony added: “We support Mike’s decision to step down as host. We were surprised this week to learn of Mike’s 2013/2014 podcast and the offensive language he used in the past. We have spoken with him about our concerns and our expectations moving forward. Mike has been with us for the last two years and has led the Jeopardy! team through the most challenging time the show has ever experienced. It is our hope that as EP he will continue to do so with professionalism and respect.”
