"Jeopardy!" needs a new host again.

Executive Producer Mike Richards, who was chosen to host the game show two weeks ago, has resigned.

Richards has been taking heat over a past discrimination lawsuit. On top of that, resurfaced comments he made several years ago on his podcast came out were seen as derogatory toward women and Jewish people.

Production on the new season had started Thursday and came to a halt after just one day.  Five episodes featuring Richards were filmed and will air as scheduled.

"Jeopardy!" will now renew its search for a permanent host and bring back guest hosts in the meantime.

On Friday, Richards wrote a letter to the ‘Jeopardy!’ team that read:”Over the last several days it has become clear that moving forward as host would be too much of a distraction for our fans and not the right move for the show. As such, I will be stepping down as host effective immediately.”
