Be careful what you wish for because you just might get it.

Over the weekend, Mayim Bialik announced she would no longer be “hosting the syndicated version of Jeopardy!“

The Big Bang Theory actor shared the news, which she says she received from Sony, on her Instagram.

“Sony has informed me that I will no longer be hosting the syndicated version of Jeopardy!” Bialik wrote. “I am incredibly honored to have been nominated for a primetime Emmy for hosting this year and I am deeply grateful for the opportunity to have been a part of the Jeopardy! family.”

Sony Pictures Television issued their own statement.

“We made the decision to have one host for the syndicated show next season to maintain continuity for our viewers, and Ken Jennings will be the sole host for syndicated Jeopardy!” Sony said. “We are truly grateful for all of Mayim’s contributions to Jeopardy!, and we hope to continue to work with her on primetime specials.”

Following the death of longtime host Alex Trebek, Jennings and Bialik were chosen to share hosting duties. While Jennings was welcomed with open arms, Bialik constantly fought backlash from the fans.

Currently, Jennings has been hosting the show’s 40th season by himself.
