More on "Ink Master" Season 9
Catch It on Spike June 6
From the Futon Critic

Spike TV's hit original reality-competition series "Ink Master" returns for a ninth season on Tuesday, June 6 at 10pm ET/PT, with the highest stakes yet and twice as much prize money on the line. This season, shops from all around the country are sending two of their strongest artists to compete for a $200,000 grand prize, an editorial feature in Inked and, for the first time in "Ink Master" history, the title of "Master Shop." The series is produced by Truly Original.

This season comes with a new twist, as artists will be competing in pairs and representing their hometown shops. Throughout the competition, the artists are not only tested on their technical skills, but also their on-the-spot creativity, as they must conceive and execute original tattoos on "human canvases." Each episode will focus on a different and distinct style of tattooing, and as always, while the artists' masterpieces will last a lifetime... so will their mistakes.

After every challenge, the contestants face a tough panel comprised of musician, filmmaker and artist Dave Navarro, as well as world-renowned tattoo artists Chris Nuñez ("Miami Ink") and Oliver Peck (Elm Street Tattoo).

Mel Giedroyc Letterboxed
"Baking Show" Host to Front New BBC Quizzer
From Belfast Telegraph

Former The Great British Baking Show host Mel Giedroyc is set to deliver a new BBC game show, Letterbox.

The TV host often appears alongside comic partner Sue Perkins, but will be going it alone as the host of the forthcoming daytime series.

Created by David Young, who produces hit challenge shows The Weakest Link and Eggheads, it will see pairs of contestants go head-to-head to crack a series of passwords that could win them £2,000 (about $2500).

Mel said: “I played a version of this game and was a) extremely competitive at it, b) annoyingly bad at it, c) strangely addicted to it, d) needed to do more of it, e) asked the big cheeses if I could present it, f) was delighted when they said yes, g) can’t wait to start recording the shows and meeting the contestants, h) hoping to get seriously skilled at playing it so that i) I’ll be able to SMASH IT if the board game comes out.

“Now how many letters have I used up? (see what I did there).”

Letterbox is being touted as a simple yet addictive word game that is designed for audiences to be able to play along at home.

David said: “It’s a word game designed to appeal to a family audience because it doesn’t contain any general knowledge questions.

“On Letterbox you don’t need to be an Egghead to walk away a winner.”

The series has been commissioned for 15 30-minute episodes for BBC Two.

"Countdown" Extended by 2 Years
Tea Time Classic Renewed
From the List

'Countdown' will remain on screens until at least the end of next year.

The popular game show, which sees contestants tackle tough word and number puzzles under a tight time schedule, doesn't look like it'll be leaving the small screen any time soon as Channel 4 boss Jay Hunt has called for more episodes per year.

Speaking to the Daily Mirror newspaper, host Nick Hewer said: "The show is doing great. I don't know about the opposition from other shows as scheduling is a mystery to me. All I know is that C4 want 260 shows a year which is more than last year so obviously they are happy. The show works like clockwork and they want more. The show is in the Guinness Book of Records for the longest running show."

'Countdown', which was originally hosted by Richard Whiteley with Carol Vorderman as his sidekick, first hit television screens when the network began in November 1982.

Since then, its screened more than 6,500 episodes and seen Richard replaced by Nick and his new sidekick Rachel Riley, who has proven a huge hit with male fans.

Asked if he'd ever take part in the competition, Nick said: "I would be terrible on the show. I used to be quite good on the letters but I am hopeless now. I am better on the numbers."

It looks like Channel 4's decision to pump more money in 'Countdown' comes just months after it was reported that the cash money game show 'Deal or No Deal' had been axed.

Strike Watch: A Season in the Balance
Potential Strike Could Delay Fall Season
From TV Week

The Writers Guild of America is ratcheting up the pressure on studios as the threat of a writers strike continues to hang over Hollywood, the Los Angeles Times reports.

The WGA is “reaching out directly to advertisers, saying that a potential strike could lead to delays in the fall TV season and would likely harm ratings,” the report notes.

The article quotes a letter from David Young, executive director the Writers Guild of America West, sent Tuesday to media-buying agencies. In it Young warns of a possible domino effect should the writers go on strike.

“Any delay in the start of work has the potential to postpone fall season premieres and reduce the amount of new programming available to advertisers and audiences,” Young warns in the letter.

The deadline for a new contract is May 1, the report notes. Young points out in the letter that the last writers strike, which began in late 2007 and went on for 100 days, brought about a drop in ratings.

The Times adds: “Among the shows that will be hit almost immediately are the late-night talk programs that rely on writers to come up with jokes and witty banter on a nightly basis.”

"Fear" Is a Factor for MTV
Chris "Ludacris" Bridges to Host, EP Reboot May 30
From E!

Fear Factor lives again. E! News has confirmed MTV has revived the fan-favorite NBC reality show with a 12-episode reboot hosted and executive produced by Ludacris. However, this time don't expect as many insect challenges, the new series, which premieres Tuesday, May 30 at 10 p.m. on MTV, will have segments inspired by urban legends, scary movies and everyday anxiety-inducing happenings, like rescuing personal cell phones from extreme heights.

Each episode will feature eight contestants in four teams of two, like best friends, co-workers, exes, siblings, etc., according to a press release.

"MTV is about celebrating youth culture, and with the reinvented Fear Factor, we are putting the power in our audience's hands to face and overcome their biggest fears," Chris McCarthy , president of MTV, VH1 and Logo, said in a statement. "We are thrilled to partner with Ludacris, one of the biggest global stars who has a rich history with MTV, to energize this franchise for a whole new generation."

Original executive producers Anthony Carbone and Kevin Wehrenberg will return to the show alongside Charles Watcher, Rob Smith and Robin Feinberg.

Fear Factor premiered in 2001 and ran for six seasons on NBC. This isn't the first Fear Factor revival either; NBC brought it and original host Joe Rogan back in 2011 for a season of challenges.

MTV has also signed a development deal with the rapper-actor. "I am excited to kick off my partnership with MTV, starting with the relaunch of Fear Factor, which will be even more insane and ludicrous than what you remember," Ludacris (nee Chris Bridges) said in a statement. "This will be the first of many great projects together."

Fear Factor premieres Tuesday, May 30 at 10 p.m. on MTV.

The much anticipated fourth season of the hit series "Bachelor in Paradise" returns with all the shocking twists, surprises, unexpected guests and some of the most unlikely relationships in "Bachelor" history that viewers have come to expect. The cast, comprised of former fan favorites and controversial characters from "The Bachelor" franchise, is back looking for a second chance at love. They all left "The Bachelor" or "The Bachelorette" with broken hearts, but now they'll travel to a romantic paradise, hoping to turn a potential summer fling into the real thing.

America will watch as they fall in love or go through renewed heartbreak. Chris Harrison hosts.

"Bachelor in Paradise" is produced by Next Entertainment in association with Warner Horizon Television. Mike Fleiss, Elan Gale and Nicole Woods are executive producers.

BATTLE OF THE NETWORK STARS

The '70s and '80s television pop-culture classic, "Battle of the Network Stars," is revived when it returns to television this summer. "Battle of the Network Stars" is a nostalgic throwback to the original series where TV celebrities blended athleticism with hilarious antics. The 10-episode summer event will pit teams of current and classic TV stars from multiple eras and different genres against one another in a variety of athletic games. Viewers can look forward to seeing a fresh take at some of the classic show's sporting "events" like Tug o' War, the Obstacle Course and the Dunk Tank.

In the original "Battle of the Network Stars," TV stars representing the three major networks at that time - ABC, CBS and NBC - teamed up to compete in physical challenges that were originally broadcast on ABC starting in 1976 and continuing for 13 years. Legendary sports broadcaster Howard Cosell hosted all but one of those 19 episodes, commenting on the action with a semi-serious version of the style for which he was famous.

"Battle of the Network Stars" is produced by Glassman Media and IMG, who also owns the format. The show will film at the same venue as the original series, at Pepperdine University in Malibu, California. The executive producers are Andrew Glassman, Will Staeger and Michael Antinoro.

BOY BAND

"Boy Band," is a new series where talented singers battle it out to become a member of the next great music sensation. And for the first time ever, viewers at home will vote for their favorite five band members, live, creating a group America can truly call its own.

The 10-episode series will capture the audition process and behind-the-scenes excitement where young vocal talents compete for a chance to show the world that they have what it takes to win a coveted spot in the band and receive a recording contract with Hollywood Records.

"Boy Band" is produced by Matador Content. Todd Lubin, Jay Peterson, Jane Mun and Joel Relampagos serve as executive producers.

CELEBRITY FAMILY FEUD (Season 3)

The primetime summer hit "Celebrity Family Feud," a celebrity version of "Family Feud," returns to ABC this summer for a third season. The 10-episode series will feature celebrity families, and their immediate family members or their extended TV families, competing against each other to have fun and win money for charity.

Hosted by Steve Harvey, the highly popular standup comedian, actor, author and Emmy(R) Award-winning game show host, "Celebrity Family Feud" pits celebrities and their families against each other in a contest to name the most popular responses to survey-type questions posed to 100 people.

The celebrity family teams that will be playing for charity include: actress/comedian/writer Amy Schumer, actor/comedian George Lopez, Grammy award-winning recording artist Kelly Clarkson, NBA basketball legend Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, actress/director/producer Eva Longoria, actress Jennie Garth and astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson. For the first time, members from host Steve Harvey's family will also join in the fun.

"Celebrity Family Feud" is produced by FremantleMedia North America and is taped in front of a live audience in Los Angeles, California. Gaby Johnston and Jennifer Mullin are executive producers.

STEVE HARVEY'S FUNDERDOME

"Steve Harvey's FUNDERDOME," from Mark Burnett, is a seed-funding competition reality series where two budding entrepreneurs go head-to-head to win over a live studio audience to fund their ideas, products or companies. In each of the 13 episodes, the audience will represent the "customer" and, as the customer is always right, they will be voting to determine the winner. But, in each round, following the pitches and before Steve Harvey reveals the results of the crowd's majority vote, the entrepreneurs will face a major dilemma: one of the entrepreneurs is allowed to cash out and walk away for a lesser amount. But if an entrepreneur cashes out, they forgo the opportunity to win the whole cash prize for that round - a good move if they lost the crowd vote, but a bad move if they would have won it.

Steve Harvey will host, infusing humor, passion and support for the American Dream. The series is produced by MGM Television and internationally distributed by MGM. The executive producers are Mark Burnett, Leslie Garvin and Barry Poznick.

THE GONG SHOW

Get ready for the return of television's most irreverent talent show competition, "The Gong Show," executive produced by actor/comedian Will Arnett. Every episode will celebrate unusually talented and unique performers on a primetime stage. A revolving panel of judges featuring Hollywood's hottest stars praise, critique and gong contestants in one of TV's all-time great variety shows.

"The Gong Show" will be produced by Den of Thieves, Electric Avenue Productions and Principato Young Entertainment in association with Sony Pictures Television and will be taped in front of a live audience. "The Gong Show" is executive produced by Will Arnett, Evan Prager, Jesse Ignjatovic, Conrad Green and Peter Principato. Jared Morell, Jordan Barrow and Marc Forman will co-executive produce.


TO TELL THE TRUTH (Season 2)

Hosted by Anthony Anderson, "To Tell the Truth" is a funny re-imagination of the beloved game show of the same name. The all-new version takes the excitement to another level, featuring fun characters from pop culture. Anderson's mother, fondly known as Mama Doris, is also part of the fun as commentator.

In each round the celebrity panel is presented with three participants who all claim to be the same person with the same incredible talent, job or achievement. One is sworn to tell the truth while the others are not. The panel of celebrities have a chance to grill each participant before taking turns deciding who they think is telling the truth.

"To Tell the Truth" is produced by FremantleMedia North America. David Friedman, Jennifer Mullin, Jeff Gaspin, George Moll and Anthony Anderson are executive producers.

More Stars "Ask Britain"
Jonathan Ross, Frank Skinner Join Xander Armstrong for New Series
From Radio Times

The last time Britain was asked a question, Brexit happened. Which doesn’t entirely bode well for this new ITV game show.

The concept behind Don’t Ask Me Ask Britain revolves around people at home answering questions via an app.

Team captains Jonathan Ross and Frank Skinner will go head to head to try and second-guess what the viewers will answer as Alexander Armstrong hosts. It’s basically a bit like Family Fortunes – but in real time.

Jonathan Ross said: “I'm thrilled to be involved with the show - I love the idea of using the latest technology to get to the heart of the matter, and am nosey enough to want to know what the rest of the country think about things - from big political questions to those small challenges that we face every day. I can't wait”.

Frank Skinner added: “An hour of live prime time television completely led by an unpredictable public vote. What larks!”
