NBC has seen some success with unscripted TV shows like The Voice and Ellen’s Game of Games. Now they’ve turned to “The Rock” and his new competitive reality series — The Titans Games TV show. With his marquee name and large, loyal fan base, will the first season of this program help the Peacock Network scale to the very top of the Nielsen ratings range? Will The Titan Games be cancelled or renewed for season two? Stay tuned. *Status update below.
An NBC athletic competition, The Titan Games was created by Dwayne Johnson aka “The Rock”, who hosts the series. Sports and entertainment journalist Cari Champion serves as field reporter, with Liam McHugh and Alex “Golden Boy” Mendez providing color commentary. Each episode features men and women confronting the contest’s Mount Olympus, in hopes of conquering it and becoming a Titan. At the end of the season, the Titans return and compete against each other, with just one man and one woman being crowned the Titan Champion and winner of a large cash prize.
