What’s This TV Show About?
Airing on the NBC television network, Weakest Link pits contestants against one another while also forcing them to work together in a trivia contest. This new version is hosted by Jane Lynch. In each episode, eight contestants enter the studio as total strangers but must work together to bank the maximum amount of prize money available in each round. At the end of each round, contestants vote to eliminate the fellow contestant they consider to be the “Weakest Link” in the chain. The contestant who receives the highest number of votes leaves the game as the host utters the iconic phrase, “You are the Weakest Link. Goodbye.” By the end of the episode, a single player can win up to $1,000,000.
Season One Ratings
Will NBC cancel or renew Weakest Link for season two? This series had a successful run on NBC and in syndication and is relatively inexpensive to produce. The first episode did very well, thanks to the Presidential debate. I suspect that Weakest Link will be renewed. I’ll update this page with breaking developments.
