Like the meat-headed NBC show, ordinary people do stunts (usually involving being dangled on wires, maybe eating food-grade mealworms) for the twisted pleasure of a whooping audience while an inane master of ceremonies eggs everyone on. If you’re over 18 and want to volunteer as a contestant (first prize: polite applause), be there 70 minutes before your selected showtime and you’ll go through a tryout including jumping jacks and a game of Simon Says. Contestants can’t wear jewelry, and if your hands sweat when you’re nervous, you will stink at the gripping challenges. This show goes dark in September and October.
