Mayim Bialik leaves ‘Jeopardy!’ early due to writers’ strike

(CNN) - Actress and “Jeopardy!” co-host Mayim Bialik is showing her support for the entertainment industry writers’ strike.
Bialik decided not to host the final week of “Jeopardy!” Season 39 in solidarity with those striking. Her co-host, Ken Jennings, will take over the hosting duties for the week.
Officials say production on the game show is able to move forward because the questions were reportedly written before the strike began.
Members of the Writers Guild of America walked off their jobs May 2 after their contract with the major studios expired.
The last writers’ strike, which happened in 2007, lasted for 100 days.
