This ‘The Gong Show’ Remake is full of interesting acts
I have never watched the original version of this show. Yet I am familiar with the concept. It was a show where people could bring plenty of different acts, the crazier they were the better. Well now The Gong Show is coming back thanks to ABC. I was able to watch a screener of the pilot and here is what I thought of it.
You can read the premise for The Gong Show here:
Get ready for the return of television’s most irreverent talent show competition, The Gong Show, executive produced by actor/comedian Will Arnett. Every episode will celebrate unusually talented and unique performers on a prime time stage. A revolving panel of judges featuring Hollywood’s hottest stars praise, critique and gong contestants in one of TV’s all-time great variety shows.
I enjoyed watching this pilot. Tommy Maitland does a great job as the host of this zany show, and he has a blast every step of the way. The judges also enjoyed themselves, and took the acts as seriously as could be expected. There were some good acts, and a few terrible ones. Whether you were a fan of the original or not, this is a show you may want to check out. If you want to learn more about The Gong Show click on this website.
