Netflix Flinches
Trailer for New Game Show Drops Before May 3 Release
From IGN

Netflix has a new game show that puts its contestants in some pretty wacky situations.

Premiering on May 3, Flinch "is a game show where contestants are put in situations where they are tempted to flinch. If they flinch, they are electrocuted and lose their chance at winning prize money," according to a synopsis from Netflix.

The streaming giant is comparing Flinch to similar reality shows like Impractical Jokers, Fear Factor, and Jackass. Hosted by Desiree Burch, Lloyd Griffith, and Seann Walsh, the 10-episode season will feature popping balloons, dangerous mousetraps, and many more frightening things that may cause the contestants to flinch.

From TV Line

Great news, Jeopardy! fans: Alex Trebek says he's "feeling good" — and is already thinking about returning for next season.

In a video update posted on Wednesday, the longtime Jeopardy! host gave us an update on his health, following the revelation last month that he's battling Stage 4 pancreatic cancer. Noting that he's in the final day of filming on the 35th season of the popular syndicated quiz show, Trebek said, "despite what you may have heard, I'm feeling good, [and] I'm continuing with my therapy." He added that preparations for Season 36 of Jeopardy! have already begun: "I look forward to seeing you again in September with all kinds of good stuff."

Trebek also took a moment to thank fans for "their continuing messages of encouragement and support" since his diagnosis. Specifically, he thanked young people for the many cards they've sent him: "I'm touched beyond words."

The host of Jeopardy! since 1984, Trebek has the backing of show producers Sony Pictures Television, who said in a statement: "If anyone can beat this, it's Alex. He has our full support as he tackles this challenge head-on."

Netflix Nails It to More Countries
German, French, Spanish Versions of "Nailed It!" Coming
From Deadline

Nailed It!, Netflix's home baking competition, is getting local versions in France, Spain and Germany following the launch of a remake in Mexico.

The series, which sees home bakers with a terrible track record take a shot at re-creating edible masterpieces for a cash prize, originally launched in the U.S. hosted by Nicole Byer and Jacques Torres in March 2018. The Magical Elves-produced show was followed by a second season in June and a holiday special in December.

The SVOD service then launched a remake in Mexico in February that was hosted by comedian Omar Chaparro and chef Anna Ruiz with a series of guest judges including Sylvia Weinstock.

Following its first quarter financial results, Netflix revealed that the Mexican version had been a hit locally. In a letter to investors, it noted, "¡Nailed It!: México [achieved] three times more first-month watchers in Mexico than the dubbed US version."

It revealed that it will follow this up with local adaptations in Europe, however, it did not give details on dates or judges.

The move comes as it bulks up its international non-scripted efforts. Last year, it acquired the remake rights to British entertainment format The Circle, which debuted on Channel 4, and is producing versions of the Studio Lambert and Motion Content Group-produced show in the U.S. as well as in France and Brazil.

Scott Rogowsky Signing Off...
HQ Trivia Loses Its Premiere Host (UPDATED)
From ComicBook.com

Last week, Scott Rogowsky, was leaving behind the mobile show and company that helped him make a name for himself to host a new MLB show, dubbed "ChangeUp." At the time of the announcement, details on the departure were scarce, and that hasn't really changed. What we do know is that CEO of HQ, Rus Yusupov, was unwilling to compromise, and refused to let Rogowsky hold another hosting job while he acted as a host for HQ Trivia. And as a result, Rogowsky had to choose one, and he chose his new MLB gig.

That all said, Rogowsky has since taken to Twitter to comment on the matter and give fans an update, revealing that as a lifelong baseball fan, the opportunity to host his own MLB show was too good to pass up. However, he will always be thankful for his co-workers at HQ, and of course, the fans that made the game as popular as it is.

"Sadly, it won't be possible for me to continue hosting HQ concurrently as I had hoped, and because I wasn't given the courtesy of a farewell show, please allow me to use this thread to say all the things I would have said on my final broadcast.

"I will forever be indebted to my former colleagues who created and supported this innovative platform that allowed my face and voice to reach millions of people around the world, and there will always be a special place in my heart for my HQties all across the HQniverse.

"Thank you for the outpouring of kind tweets and messages. I shall humbly remain your Quiz Daddy Emeritus, and I look forward to gettin down to the nitty-gritty and gettin this new show 'Change Up' on the road M-F, 7-10p ET alongside all-star Adnan Virk. Stay savage, and Let's Go Mets!"

HQ creators Intermedia Labs have also provided a statement...

"We continue to build an incredible company at HQ Trivia, from drawing hundreds of thousands of players to the platform daily, to increasing the size of the prize, to attracting strong talent. We've come a long way since Scott Rogowsky's first trivia game and we're grateful for everything he's done for the platform. This is a team that creates products for talent to really shine—we're just getting started at HQ Trivia, and as he makes his next move, wanted to take a minute to thank him for being part of our journey."

Meanwhile, the company has named a new permanent primetime host in former substitute host Matt Richards.

HQ co-creator and CEO Rus Yusupov confirms to TechCrunch that the company ran a SurveyMonkey survey of its top players and they voted that Richards, a comedian who has appeared on CBS' 2 Broke Girls, Nickelodeon's School of Rock and was a voice-over host for game show Trivial Takedown on FUSE, rated higher than Rogowsky. Yusupov says HQ is excited to have Richards as its new prime time host. It's also putting out offers to more celebrity guests to host for a few shows, a few weeks or even a whole season of one of its time slots.

According to multiple sources, more than half of the startup's staff signed an internal petition to depose CEO Rus Yusupov, whom they saw as mismanaging the company. But Yusupov then fired some core supporters of the mutiny, leading to a downward spiral of morale that mirrors HQ's plummeting App Store rank. HQ Trivia, is reportedly looking for a new CEO following half of the startup's staff signed an internal petition to depose CEO Yusupov who they saw as mismanaging the company.

From Deadline

The Voice Pulls a Double Cross
Catch It Monday!
From Reality TV World

The Voice will be debuting a brand-new round called Live Cross Battles next week, and NBC has revealed exactly how it will work and what the new round will entail.

The Voice briefly introduced the show's new Live Cross Battles round during Tuesday night's episode without going into much detail. NBC has announced this game-changing live round will feature artists from opposing teams competing head-to-head live for America's vote.

For the first time in The Voice history, coaches Kelly Clarkson, Blake Shelton, Adam Levine, and John Legend will each select an artist from their team in real time to compete live against an artist from a different team in a series of faceoffs.

The Live Cross Battles round will begin with 32 artists remaining in the competition. Over the course of two weeks, eight pairs of 16 artists will perform each Monday night. "The Voice will unveil a brand new Cross Battles set design, in which the artists will be seated by team on dramatically lit benches around each side of the stage," according to NBC.

"In every Cross Battle, two coaches will go head-to-head in a 'live school yard pick,' each selecting one artist from their team to go up against another team's artist."

The two selected artists will each perform an individual song, and their fate will be in America's hands to decide the winner.

Airing 6.00pm weeknights, Celebrity Name Game is a sure fire way to snap you out of that post-work coma and into a night of laughter and scream-at-the-tv fun.

CHARLES VAN DOREN: 1926-2019
Key Figure in Game Show Scandals of the 1950s
From the Wrap

Charles Van Doren, the disgraced '50s-era quiz show contestant who was found to have received the answers in advance, has died. He was 93.

His son John told the New York Times that Van Doren died at a retirement community in Geer Village, Connecticut, where he had lived for several years.

Van Doren was an English instructor at Columbia University and the son of Pulitzer Prize-winning poet and critic Mark Van Doren and novelist and writer Dorothy Van Doren.

Van Doren was involved in a quiz show scandal in which he testified before Congress that he had been given the answers in advance to "Twenty-One" and that it was rigged. Van Doren's story was the subject of Robert Redford's film "Quiz Show," in which he was portrayed by Ralph Fiennes.

Van Doren rose to fame during the TV game show craze in the mid-to-late 1950s. As a handsome, well-spoken and well-educated individual with natural screen presence, he was approached by the producers of "Twenty-One" to defeat a long-running champion of the show, Herb Stempel, as the show's ratings began to slump.

For 14 weeks, Van Doren appeared on the show and won $129,000, or over $1 million in today's dollars, and became a celebrity. He appeared on the cover of Time Magazine and after his loss on "Twenty-One," signed a contract to appear on NBC shows for three years.

On the show, Van Doren would appear in a supposedly soundproof booth and would answer incredibly difficult trivia questions on everything from countries that border the Black Sea to Henry VIII's wives.

But the show was a hoax, and after skepticism grew, Van Doren testified before Congress on Nov. 2, 1959 that he had been given the answers in advance and was coached on how to build drama or even learn to mop up sweat.

The ordeal left Van Doren disgraced and caused him to lose his job at Columbia. He took on a pseudonym as a writer and editor for Encyclopedia Brittanica and wrote several other books.

In a 2008 tell-all New Yorker article, Van Doren revealed that when he was approached to compete on the game show "Tic Tac Dough," he did not even own a television set.

Van Doren is survived by his wife, two children and three grandchildren.
