    Cedric does a great job on the show. He is funny and I enjoy his interactions with the audience and the contestants. Go Cedric!

    Meridith was great also…but she has moved on.

    cedric the “entertainer”?????? — what is entertaining about him? I love the show, however, will no longer watch it because of him! Is that the best you could do for a host? Pathetic!
