Brad Paisley will join Alyson Hannigan, Jimmy Kimmel and Jason Sudeikis as rotating judges on the return of The Gong Show, heading back to TV beginning on June 21st at 8 p.m. ET on ABC. Actor and comedian Mike Myers will host the show, along with executive producer Will Arnett, Dana Carvey, Ken Jeong and Rob Riggle.
The Gong Show will feature performers such as contortionists, singers, magicians, dancers, jugglers and dancing dogs, all trying to impress the panel of three celebrity judges. If any of the judges deem an act to be less than worthy of a score, they can pick up a mallet and hit the giant gong that is hanging behind them and end the underwhelming performance. But if the judges are happy with the act, they will let it play out until the end and present their scores numerically from 0 through 10. At the end of each show, the winning performer or act with the highest judges’ scores will receive a “The Gong Show” trophy and a check.
Brad recently wrapped up his Weekend Warrior World tour.
