 The Opening Toss-Up story.   

It's official. 

NNickelodeon has tapped a host to help reboot Double Dare for a new generation. The network announced on Tuesday that Liza Koshy, best known for her YouTube videos and Instagram presence, will take over hosting duties.
Koshy will get some help from a familiar face: Marc Summers, who hosted Double Dare from 1986-1993, will return as a color commentator.
The broadcast team will preside over the new episodes of Double Dare, which are set premiere on Monday, June 25th at 8:00 p.m. ET on Nickelodeon.
The revival takes on the classic Double Dare format with two teams answering trivia questions, bracing slimy stunts, and taking on the obstacle course, which includes the boogery Double Dare nose.
In a statement, Koshy said: "This is a dream that I have been dreaming to live! From watching Double Dare to hosting it!? I am ready for a summer of slime and nose picking."
Fans will get a chance to live their Double Dare dream this summer as well. The network is bringing the show out of the studio and into the wild at VidCon in Anaheim, Calif. and at Nickelodeon Universe at Mall of America in Minneapolis for fans to watch and participate in person.

Now we find out who got spoiled rich and who got locked out of an isolation booth. It's the Yay & Yawn of May. 

The yay: Cash Cab getting back on the road totaling 11 seasons. 

The Yawn: Taskmaster. Trying hard to act like it's Uk counterpart, it averaged a 0.06 rating. Ouch. 

After this commercial word, Just like Mom & Dad......season 2. 

That's...............when Game Show Live! returns.

NBC's American Ninja Warrior is "spicing things up" for Season 10, with a pair of new twists that are detailed in this first look video.
Premiering Wednesday, May 30 at 8/7c (where it will lead into the Sarah Shahi-led thriller Reverie), ANW this season will confront competitors at the finish line with not just the Warped Wall but also an 18-foot Mega Warped Wall. Choose and conquer the taller of the two and you pocket $10,000, instantly. (Aye, but here's the rub: If you go Mega and fall short, you only get one more try, not two, at either of the warped walls.)
Also new for Season 10 is a very $pecial $omething for the athlete who makes it the furthest in Vegas — in addition to the customary million-dollar payday awaiting atop Mount Midoriyama.k

And now, for a Game Show Live! Exclusive!

With Buzz'd Out set to bow at the Hollywood Fringe Fest this weekend, the festival behind it all asked them questions. Here's what they had to say.

Think Japanese game shows are funny? Well, ABC once did I survived a Japanese Game show.

In Season One, the contestants are informed that they are to take part in a reality-style competition, but not informed of the nature of the show. They are flown to Tokyo, Japan, and taken to the Toho Studios, where it is revealed that they are to compete on a Japanese game show called Majide (本気で). For Season Two, Majide host Rome Kanda surprised each of the contestants in their hometowns informing them they were going to Japan. They are broken up into teams and competed in games against each other. The winning team was given a reward activity while the losing team was given a punishment activity after their team game. In the second season, the first game played saw the winning team have an advantage into the second game, where rewards and punishments were handed out afterward. In the final episode, the first two games reverted to the rules of Season One. Two members of the losing team are chosen to compete in an additional game known as the elimination game head-to-head where the loser of that game is eliminated. (In general, the losing team chooses its two players as a team, although in the event that they fail to come to a decision, their opponents make the selection for them.) If the losing team has only two players remaining, then both have to compete in the elimination game. In the final part, the teams are broken up and the four remaining players face three elimination challenges in Season One, and final three facing two elimination games in Season Two; in all cases, the losing contestant was eliminated from the show and carried offstage and sent back to the United States by the "sayonara mob" (脱落者决定), dressed in black suits.
The series followed not only the Majide competition, but also the contestants' activities backstage and outside the game show in reality style. The contestants lived in a house together in the suburb of Kasai, with a Mama-san(Kozue Saito), who generally expects the contestants to live in line with Japanese culture and customs. In season 2, they live in the Majide Guest House with Mama-san.
The host of season one was Japanese-American Tony Sano, who commented, "It's going to be like nothing American audiences have seen on network television." [7] Episodes are narrated by Robert Cait.
The show was produced by A. Smith & Co. Productions (the producers of Gordon Ramsay's Hell's Kitchen and Kitchen Nightmares in the USA) with Arthur Smith, Kent Weed of A. Smith and Co. and Tim Cresenti of Small World International Format Television as executive producers and Weed directing, and is distributed by Disney/ABC's Greengrass Productions division. The format was created by Danish producers Karsten Bartholin and David Sidebotham for Babyfoot ApS, and was originally titled Big in Japan.

Here's where the show within a show came in.

Majide (which is Japanese slang for "Seriously?!"), the show-within-the-show, was not an actual Japanese game show, but was intended to resemble a stereotypical Japanese game show.[8] The American producers watched hours of Japanese game shows, took the most common elements and created all of the games, with help from producers in Japan, who also produced the game segments at Toho Studios.[9] In contrast to many American game shows, which are usually based on either trivia (such as Who Wants to Be a Millionaire), mental skill (Wheel of Fortune) celebrity interaction (Match Game or The $100,000 Pyramid) or even dumb luck (Let's Make a Deal), Japanese game shows tend to be more physically oriented, such as Takeshi's Castle. The Nickelodeon game show Double Dare was a hybrid of both the American and Japanese styles, while the reality show format also used a strategy base for who to eliminate, and who to keep such as Big Brother and Survivor.
Majide is hosted by Rome Kanda[10] and judged by Masahiro Hurugori, known on the show as Judge Bobu (Bob). Kanda has translated "Majide" (マジで) as "You've got to be crazy!"

See there?
