Gonged

ABC is ransacking the oldies shelf for game show reboots. The latest alphabet net (Variety speak!) effort is a new version of Gong Show.

Okay, this is a subjective talent (or anti-talent) contest, not a real game show with objective rules. But life is full of exceptions, and the show has been grandfathered into the genre. Naturally, it made the Game Show Forum top 50 list because of its age, though I left it off my own list. Because, after all, it's not really a game show.

Of course, nobody in the real world will bother about such quibbles. Will Arnett is the showrunner, and the order is for ten episodes. No word on host or panel, beyond a generic "revolving panel of judges featuring Hollywood stars." That could obviously mean just about anybody.

No debut date, either, but I assume next summer. Bang a gong, get it on. Gee, I wish somebody would do a reboot of The Chase. Guess there's not enough nostalgia value yet.

  1. How about this, Casey? I will declare Beverly's Showcase a technical Double Showcase Win because SHE WAS WITHIN $250 OF HER OWN SHOWCASE. This is about the Breast Cancer Awareness episode of Price is Right.

    2. This is like someone almost had breast cancer. Nope, you either have/had it or you didn't. There's no gray area.

  2. She went OVER. Please stop "declaring technical wins" all over the place. They are idiotic and make no sense. You're hardly in any position to "declare" anything.

    1. If you're going to act like a complete lunatic, then I hope Casey DOES delete it! You're a nutcase with your stupid "technical wins". Go away and never come back.
