Although drama is The CW’s stock-in-trade, the network also likes to dabble in game shows and other unscripted series, particularly in the summer. Now they’ve introduced a new comedic take on the format, the Hypnotize Me TV show. Can it win the hearts and minds of the fickle warm-weather audience? Will Hypnotize Me be cancelled or renewed for season two? Stay tuned. *Status update below.
A CW game show hosted by Taye Diggs, Hypnotize Me is based on the British series, You’re Back In The Room. Resident hypnotist Keith Barry hypnotizes the contestants, who then have to perform assigned tasks while they’re under, in hopes of winning big money.
