Mike Richards is now out as both host AND Executive Producer of Jeopardy! and Wheel of Fortune.

His departure is effective immediately.

In a statement they said, we had hoped that when Mike stepped down from the host position at Jeopardy! it would have minimized the disruption and internal difficulties. That has not happened.

Do you think this is the right decision by the shows, or is it an overreaction to the Internet uproar?
