What’s This TV Show About?
Airing on the ABC television network, The Gong Show is a wacky talent competition. Season two celebrity judges include Will Arnett, Fred Armisen, Rita Wilson, Tony Hale, Regina Hall, Jason Sudeikis, Sharon Osbourne, Brad Paisley, Dana Carvey, Ken Jeong, Rob Riggle, Alyson Hannigan, and Jimmy Kimmel. Performers with unique talents face off in hopes of impressing the rotating panel of three celebrity judges. When a judge determines an act does not deserve a score, he or she can grab the mallet, strike the gong, and eliminate the contestant, provided fellow judges don’t prevent it. When an act pleases the judges, they will award it between 0 and 10 points. At the end of each episode, the performer or act with the highest score wins The Gong Show trophy and a check for $2,000.18.
Season Two Ratings
The second season of The Gong Show averaged a 0.49 rating in the 18-49 demographic and 2.81 million viewers. Compared to season one, that’s down by 28% in the demo and even in viewership. Find out how The Gong Show stacks up against other ABC TV shows.
Will ABC cancel or renew The Gong Show for season three? The ratings are quite low but I suspect that the network will bring the series back for a third year. I’ll keep an eye on the ratings and update this page with breaking developments. Subscribe for free alerts on The Gong Show cancellation or renewal news.
Update: ABC has presumably cancelled The Gong Show so there won’t be a third season of this revival, at least for now.
