TV Joel McHale to Host "Card Sharks" Revival on ABC

"Card Sharks" Deals Joel McHale as Host of Revived Game Show
by Bruce Haring
April 8, 2019



Actor and comedian Joel McHale (Community, The Soup) is set to host "Card Sharks", slated to air this summer on the ABC Television Network.

The "Card Sharks" concept has been made into a series four separate times since its debut in 1978. The show originally ran on NBC from 1978 to 1981.




In "Card Sharks", the road to glory and riches begins with two players facing off in a head-to-head elimination race where the winning player claims a $10,000 cash prize and a chance to turn that amount into a life-changing payday. The winning contestant risks their prize on predicting seven final cards. The player leaves the game with whatever amount of money they have in their bank after their prediction, and results are revealed on the flip of their seventh and final card.

“I’m very excited to be hosting ‘Card Sharks,’” said McHale. “Game winners can win tens of thousands of dollars and in an updated twist – losers will be fed to a pen of adult Tiger Sharks.”

I've never heard of this guy, then again in 1978 I had never heard of Jim Perry either. Will take a wait and see attitude.

I hope that this version of Card Sharks goes back to the survey questions that to me were the best part of the Jim Perry and Bob Eubanks incarnations. The Bullard version was the worst revival of any game show I have seen and I hope this one is much better.
