LOS ANGELES (AP) — Mayim Bialik and Ken Jennings will continue as tag-team hosts of “Jeopardy!” through the rest of this season.

The show’s producer, Sony Pictures Television, announced that the interim hosts will finish out the 38th season.

Jennings is the record-holder for longest “Jeopardy!” winning streak.

Bialik has already been chosen to host “Jeopardy!” prime-time and spinoff series, including a new college championship.
