"Jeopardy" ratings are taking a dip after reaching a record high earlier this year with James Holzhauer's streak on the hit game show.

News of the rating drop comes just one week after Holzhauer's dramatic loss that ended his winning streak. The "Jeopardy" player had been on a 32-game hot streak before losing during his 33rd game. While Holzhauer was just $58,484 shy of breaking the all-time record for most winnings won, he did secure several single-game winning records along the journey.  

In May, during Holzhauer's reign, The Wrap reported that, according to Nielsen, the Alex Trebek-hosted game show had managed an 8.3 household rating (which refers to the percentage of TV homes watching) for the week ending May 5, making it the show's best ratings in 14 years. Since then, though, ratings have dropped substantially. 

In an article from Tuesday, The Wrap revealed that the show's 5.8 rating, according to Nielsen’s live-plus-same-day metric, "is down 15% from the week prior." The website also revealed that the lower rating knocked "Jeopardy" down to the number two spot. "Family Feud" took the number one spot. 

Only time will tell if the rating slump will have a lasting effect on the show. For Trebek, though, it could be a weight off his shoulders.

Back in March, the 78-year-old, who has hosted the syndicated game show since 1984, announced that he had been diagnosed with stage IV pancreatic cancer. Trebek remained positive when he sat down with "Good Morning America" in May.
