Tuesday is a huge night for me. I am a game show junkie and tonight is game show heaven. But first, tonight also marks the premiere of the Rescue Me Minisodes on FX at 10/9c. They are 5 minutes each! How cute!
Now on to my favorite part of the night (week, really). First up is Celebrity Family Feud on NBC at 8/7c. Hosted by Al Roker (Today show co-host), it pits 2 sets of families against each other twice an episode for a chance to win up to $50 for their charity. Tonight’s episode features Ice-T & family will playing for Unity 2 against Joan & Melissa Rivers & family, who will be playing for Guide Dogs for the Blind. Following them is Raven-Symone & family will be playing for the American Red Cross against Wayne Newton & his family, who will be playing for The USO.
The second game show tonight is going to be my personal favorite, Wipeout on ABC at 8/7c. Twenty-four contenders compete in an extreme obstacle course designed to provide the most crashes, face plants, impacts and wipe outs ever seen on television. During each one-hour episode, one competitor will win the title of Wipeout champion and $50,000. It is hosted by John Anderson (ESPN’s SportsCenter), Jill Wagner (from Blade: The Series on Spike TV) & comedian John Henson (Talk Soup). If you have ever seen MXC (formerly known as Most Extreme Elimination Challenge) on Spike TV, this should be VERY similar, except with Americans and all in English. My husband & I absolutely love watching MXC so we are absolutely psyched for this one.
Finally, another that we are really pumped for is I Survived a Japanese Game Show on ABC at 9/8c. This unscripted reality/game show takes an eye-opening, behind-the-scenes look at 10 Americans who are whisked away to Japan and compete in the ultimate Japanese game show. The results and prizing will be based on who best adapts to the Japanese culture and challenges in each episode. My boss is constantly sending me clips from YouTube & what not with Japanese & Korean game shows. They are always hysterical. So going to enjoy this one a lot too.
