TV TBS' "Misery Index" Set for October 22nd

TBS Picks Up Comedy Game Show "Misery Index" to Series from "Monk" Creator
by Denise Petski
October 10, 2018



TBS is expanding its comedy game show slate, ordering 10 half-hour episodes of "Misery Index", a new unscripted series inspired by the entertaining card game Sh*t Happens, from "Monk" creator Andy Breckman and Grandma’s House Entertainment.

The show will feature James “Murr” Murray, Brian “Q” Quinn, Joe Gatto and Sal Vulcano, creators and stars of TBS sibling truTV’s top-rated "Impractical Jokers", also known as comedy troupe The Tenderloins.




"Misery Index" will feature two teams — each consisting of one contestant and two Tenderloins.

Teams will compete against each other by attempting to determine the ranking of hilarious and miserable real-life events — from getting fired to accidentally sexting your grandfather — on a scale of 1-100.






The show was developed by Breckman along with Ben & Dan Newmark of Grandma’s House Entertainment. The series is executive produced by Breckman, the Newmarks, Adam Bold of Grandma’s House Entertainment, Howard Klein of 3 Arts Entertainment, and Rob Anderson, who will serve as showrunner.

Andy Breckman and the Newmarks have hilariously gamified embarrassment, humiliation and total misery,” said Michael Bloom, senior vice president of unscripted and specials for Turner-owned TBS and TNT.

Adding The Tenderloins brings unpredictable fun to this game.

Jameela Jamil Tapped as Host of "The Misery Index" TBS Game Show
by Denise Petski
November 29, 2018



Jameela Jamil is returning to her TV-hosting roots. Jamil, who built her career as a TV and radio presenter in her native England before joining the cast of NBC’s "The Good Place", is returning to that role in the U.S. as host of "The Misery Index", TBS’ recently announced game show.

Jamil “will serve as the show’s ringleader, delivering entertainingly cringeworthy questions to each team using her quick-witted humor and unwavering ability to call things as she sees them,” according to TBS.

She’ll be joined by previously announced The Tenderloins comedy troupe and stars of TBS sibling truTV’s "Impractical Jokers" Brian “Q” Quinn, James “Murr” Murray, Joe Gatto and Sal Vulcano, who will be featured as recurring panelists.





The game show, inspired by the card game Sh*t Happens, will feature two teams, each consisting of one contestant and two Tenderloins. Teams will compete against each other by attempting to rate hilarious and miserable real-life events on a scale of 1-100 based on the “Misery Index,” a ranking system created by a team of therapists. For example, is getting a third degree burn worse than seeing your father naked? Is it worse than dropping your phone in the toilet?

As someone whose life is just a series of mortifying incidents strung together, it’s going to be brilliant to take a break from my own mishaps, and feast in the disasters of others,” said Jamil. “I cannot wait for the misery to commence. This show is brilliantly ridiculous.
