The Gong Show returns for its second season on June 21
ABC’s The Gong Show is set to make its triumphant return to the network on Thursday, June 21 at 8:00 p.m. EDT. Actor and comedian Mike Myers stars as the show’s host, British comedic legend Tommy Maitland, with Will Arnett serving as executive producer.
The iconic and irreverent talent show competition makes its way into the 21st century with a bang, celebrating unusually talented and unique performers on a primetime stage. A revolving panel of judges featuring Hollywood’s biggest stars praise, critique, and gong contestants in this revival of one of TV’s all-time great variety shows.
This summer, actor and comedian Will Arnett returns as a celebrity judge. Most performers will go home with their unique talent that only a mother can love, but each week, the winning act with the highest judge’s score will receive The Gong Show trophy and a check. This season promises to bring in even more big-name judges and a new gaggle of contestants who are unafraid to showcase their awesome yet quirky routines.
The Gong Show is produced by Den of Thieves, Electric Avenue Productions, and Principato Young Entertainment in association with Sony Pictures Television and is taped in front of a live audience. Alongside Arnett, The Gong Show is executive produced by Peter Principato, Marc Forman, Jesse Ignjatovic, Evan Prager, Mike Myers, Jason Weinberg, and Conrad Green. Jared Morell, Jordan Barrow, David Bohnert, and Chris Choun serve as co-executive producers.
