Stupid network television and their strikes. As the entertainment world predicted we're entering the realm of non-stop reality and game show programming, and this could be more evident with ABC's decision to bring back Mike Greenberg and his pointless game show "Duel".....
ABC is bringing back its winter game show "Duel" next month. The network has ordered 10 one-hour episodes to air Friday nights starting April 4. "Duel" is a trivia show where contestants play head-to-head for a chance of winning up to $500,000. ESPN's Mike Greenberg will return as host.Greaaaaaaat. Does that mean more exciting moments like this?
Though the show performed modestly during its original six-episode airing, the series ran during the December holidays when audience levels are lower. Also, ABC says there have been some format changes made this time to improve the show.
Friday nights are shaping up to be a broadcast game show battleground, with NBC's "Amnesia" and CBS's "Price Is Right Million Dollar Spectacular" vying for viewers in recent weeks.
Just kill me now.
