Jeopardy fans react to Dr. Oz guest hosting the trivia game show and let's just say, they weren't too happy about having him on...
Dr. Mehmet Oz's Jeopardy! debut was met with mixed reviews.
Oz, 60, began his two-week stint as guest host on Monday, and while the television star expressed his gratitude at the opportunity to fill in for the late Alex Trebek, some fans did not take so warmly to his appearance, with many calling for him to be removed as host.
The controversy over his hosting gig began last month, when Oz appeared on a list of upcoming celebrity guest hosts. The announcement was met with criticism, prompting a handful of former Jeopardy! contestants and winners to publish an open letter in protest of the casting.
In the letter, published Feb. 24 on Medium, the group claimed that Oz's casting stood "in opposition to everything Jeopardy! stands for" and would celebrate "talking head[s] at the expense of academic rigor and consensus."
A rep for Oz did not immediately return PEOPLE's request for comment.
The letter called into question several of Oz's past medical opinions, which he has shared on his own program, The Dr. Oz Show.
