Who's Ready For A Mike Greenberg Hosted Game Show On ABC?

Tuesday, November 20, 2007


I know I sure the hell am! That's right folks Mike Greenberg is coming to Primetime network television and will be the host of a new game show!!! The show is called "Duel", and will premiere Monday, December 17 from 8-9pm and run six nights to a finale on Sunday, December 23. Via Mike-Greenberg.com.....

"Duel" features head-to-head matches with nerve rattling game play rewarding contestants who embrace shrewdness and manipulation to win. If contestants can react quickly under pressure and outsmart their opponents using strategy and deception, intellect and skill, they could walk away with a life-changing prize - potentially more than $1.5 million. One of 20 contestants is guaranteed to win the jackpot.
I really have no idea what that actually means, but it sounds kind of cool. Can Mike Greenberg ruin a good idea just by his presence? These are the questions I leave up to you my friends. You can head to DuelCasting.com if you want to be on the show, and also if you're in Las Vegas Atlantic City in January be sure to get your tickets for the Mike & Mike Roast!

(Many Thanks to reader JW for the tip)

I have no problem with Mike Greenberg as a game show host. I think it would actually fit him quite well.

However, that description of the show was complete gibberish.

I thought the roast was going to be in AC not Vegas?

"with nerve rattling game play rewarding contestants who embrace shrewdness and manipulation to win. If contestants can react quickly under pressure and outsmart their opponents using strategy and deception, intellect and skill, they could walk away with a life-changing prize"

I am not sure what all that means either but I think it is the method he used when he kept quashing Golick's steroids admissions.

The mechanics of the game are actually pretty cool; it's a sort of bluffing/trivia game. Actual, understandable gameplay description is here: http://buzzerblog.flashgameshows.com/duel-rules-and-information/

Sound good? Too bad. Greenberg's hosting.

The only way I would watch "Duel" is if Greenberg were standing between two men pointing guns at each other. We would all be winners.

I think "TOOL" would be a more appropriate name for any show Greenie hosts.

Does Greenie have to weekly fellate the suit that gave the OK for this show, or is he done since the show got a green light?

He's never done sucking his way up the corporate ladder.

Anon4- that's an insult to one of the greatest rock bands around; take it back.

And Greenie could ruin a supermarket opening....
