TV "The Gong Show" Season 2 Launches June 21st

"The Gong Show" Reboot a Go at ABC
by Michael Ausiello
October 3, 2016



Stop us if this has a familiar clang to it. ABC is rebooting another classic game show, this time the cheesy ’70s competition series "The Gong Show", TVLine has confirmed.

The network has placed a 10-episode order for a new version of the ’70s favorite, which is being exec produced by Will Arnett.



ABC has tapped into the nostalgia and excitement of primetime game shows,” said Rob Mills, SVP, Alternative Series, Specials & Late-Night Programming, in a statement.

We are thrilled to add The Gong Show to ABC’s schedule spearheaded by the incomparable Will Arnett.



According to Deadline, which first broke the news, every episode will feature “non-traditionally talented performers” plucked from the internet and put in front of a revolving panel of Hollywood judges.

ABC has not announced who will succeed Chuck Barris (who emceed the original ’70s version) as host.

"The Gong Show" Revival Sets Tommy Maitland (AKA Mike Myers?) as Host
by Denise Petski
April 28, 2017



ABC’s "The Gong Show" revival now has a host. The network announced that British comic Tommy Maitland has been tapped to emcee the rebooted talent show competition executive produced by Will Arnett. But wait, Tommy Maitland has an uncanny resemblance to Mike Myers.

And, (spoiler alert) Maitland isn’t a real person. He’s actually a fictional character being played by an actor believed to be Mike Myers. So, while ABC won’t confirm or deny, we’ll go with Myers, who apparently will be going full method for the gig.





According to ABC’s release, Arnett had befriended Maitland years ago after meeting him at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. Wanting to work with the comedian, Arnett tried for years to come up with a something that was suitable and "The Gong Show" appeared to the perfect match.

The show, which premieres June 22, will feature non-traditionally talented performers plucked from the internet and put in front of a revolving panel of Hollywood judges.

If Tommy is indeed Mike Myers, they should have left the gag go on. I would have never know. Reminds me of Marty ( can;t think of his last name) who did Jimmy Glick.

I didn't know we weren't supposed to know it was him, it sounds just like him, and he even uses a lot of the same phrases from when he played Austin Powers.

You're thinking of Martin Short.

I totally agree. But it just shows how far in the toilet Mike Myers' career has sunk. But then I've never liked him anyways. He hasn't made any movies since that stupid Love Guru disaster, I've heard several times now that Hollywood wants nothing more to do with him. I hope the show is a big fat failure. And I've also heard that Mike Myers is an arrogant, demanding jerk who thinks way too highly of himself to work with also.

The problem with doing the Gong Show now is that most big musical stars today have no talent anyway. Life is the Gong Show.

I took a quick glance at the Rolling Stone magazine and an article was about the new Gong show and indeed they mentioned Mike Meyers. As for the show, I was never a fan of the old show, I won't watch it. It does seem society now wants the dumbest shows to play. I am not much into the Match Game with any version. Give me a show where you learn.

Mom and I saw an episode of the new version of The Gong Show a few minutes ago and in my mind it's the worst version of The Gong Show I have seen. Take for instance why did ABC have Tommy Maitland be the host? ABC should've had James Corden or Howie Mandel or even David Spade be the host of the show and that would make this new version of The Gong Show worth watching. Second I think the panel of rotating guest judges was great but I think they could've used stars like Whoopi Goldberg Gabriel Iglesias and George Lopez as judges rather than having a rotating panel of judges. Finally what I really disliked about the new version of The Gong Show was there should be more singers and musical acts rather than comedy acts but I had to admit that some of the comedy acts were very clever like today's Street Fighter act on today's The Gong Show episode
So while ABC has done a clever version of a game show classic I think some improvements for the new version of The Gong Show should be done for next season

I'm not a fan of some of those people, so in my opinion, they would not make great hosts.

"The Gong Show" Renewed for Second Season at ABC; Mike Myers Revealed as Host
by Denise Petski
January 8, 2018



"The Gong Show" is returning for a second go-round. ABC has renewed the popular summer series for a second season.

The show will go into production later this year and an airdate will be announced at a future date, ABC said today during its TCA presentation.




Mike Myers also confirmed that he is in fact, the show’s host, aka British comedian Tommy Maitland.

Being the host of ‘The Gong Show’ is a blast! Pure fun,” said Myers. “It is with great delight that I can finally admit that there is indeed a Tommy Maitland, and that I portray him.




I was just as surprised as the next guy when I heard ‘The Gong Show’’s host, Tommy Maitland, was a character portrayed by the insanely talented Mike Myers,” executive producer Will Arnett revealed.

Despite this shocking news, I’m in total awe of the man, and we are so fortunate to have him as our brilliant host.
