The Gong Show Revival

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.


This show was the America’s Got Talent of the 70’s, but mixed with booze, cocaine, and often incoherent babbling by host, Chuck Barris.

After successfully rebooting several retro game shows, ABC is bringing back another classic shiny-floor competition series. The network has given a 10-episode order to The Gong Show, a new version of the irreverent talent show competition, which is being executive produced by Will Arnett.

Every episode will feature non-traditionally talented performers plucked from the internet and put in front of a revolving panel of Hollywood judges. Sony Pictures TV, which owns the rights to the original series, is the studio.

We all know the new show is going to be awful and suck, but let’s take a trip down Memory Lane and remember the Gong Show of yesteryear.
