Lingo is coming soon to CBS, and the network has released a teaser for the game show revival hosted by RuPaul Charles. This version of the series features four teams competing to fill in five letter words’ missing letters. The top two teams will battle it out at the end to take home an additional cash prize.
CBS revealed the following about the series:
“LINGO is a new, supercharged adaptation of the word-twisting, fast-thinking game show. Host RuPaul Charles brings his one-of-a-kind personality to this clever, competitive and unpredictable game where teams of two face off in fast-paced puzzle rounds to guess letters that reveal seemingly simple words.
At the end of each one-hour episode, packed with witty commentary and gameplay, the two winning teams will make it through to a nerve-racking final showdown where one team will walk away with an additional big cash prize.
The “Lingo” format has been sold in more than 17 territories, with versions of the hit show produced in major markets, including the U.K., Italy, Spain, the Netherlands and France. There is a “Lingo” boardgame, Facebook game and app available.
RuPaul Andre Charles serves as LINGO executive producer for RuCo, Inc. along with Layla Smith and Jilly Pearce for Objective Media Group. Ed de Burgh and Paul Wright serve as executive producers for Triple Brew Media. LINGO is an All3Media / IDTV and Talpa TV format, distributed by All3Media International.”
The series arrives on January 11th. Check out the trailer for Lingo below.
What do you think? Are you planning to check out this game show on CBS later this week?
Nope nope and
This isn’t Chuck Woolley! They have a big strike against them (CBS) just with the host. 40% will never watch him. If it’s good, has a slight chance. But don’t know. At least doesn’t look too flamboyant. I don’t mind RuPaul but the act gets old. I’ll try it but not expecting much.
Yes, I am most definitely going to check out the new version of the game show Lingo! I loved the old version of it so I am hoping that this one will be just as good!
I really like to watch game shows! I hope this is a good one! Some are very disappointing
