What’s This TV Show About?
Airing on the ABC television network, Big Fan is a game show based on the “Who knows?” segment on Jimmy Kimmel Live. In the series, three of a featured celebrity’s biggest fans compete to prove which of them is the ultimate super fan. The players compete to correctly answer the most trivia and biographical questions about the star. In the end, the most knowledgeable fan goes head-to-head with the actual celebrity. Fans who manage to beat the stars are rewarded with a golden “Little Fan” award, as well as a custom fan experience with their idols. First season celebrities include Kristen Bell, Kim Kardashian West, Matthew McConaughey, and Aaron Rodgers. Andy Richter hosts.
Season One Ratings
It’s a little too soon to tell if Big Fan has the wind at its back. While the ratings aren’t particularly impressive, it must be dirt cheap to produce. The “Little Fan” award is an actual working rotary fan, after all.
When ABC announced it had ordered Big Fan, the press release did not mention an episode count. Right now, the only four episodes listed on the network’s press site have already aired.
I expect ABC will produce some more episodes and try them out — perhaps this the summer. This little game show has performed similarly to or better than expensive drama series like Notorious, Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD, Secrets and Lies, Quantico, and Conviction.
