Trailers for the new* game shows airing this fall

*two are revivals and one is the US adaptation of a South Korean game show

The Weakest Link (original NBC run from 2001-2002)



Jane Lynch hosts the return of the British import and international game show phenomenon "Weakest Link." In each episode, eight contestants enter the studio as total strangers but must work together to bank the maximum amount of prize money available in each round. The contestants take turns to answer general knowledge questions to build chains of correct answers. Consecutive correct answers greatly increase the value of the chain, while incorrect answers break the chain and force the contestants to start over on the lowest rung with the smallest amount money. At the end of each round, contestants vote to eliminate the fellow contestant they consider to be the "Weakest Link" in the chain. The contestant who receives the highest number of votes leaves the game as Jane declares the iconic phrase, "You are the Weakest Link. Goodbye."

NBC promised some change in the revival. They include the the top prize in each round growing as the game progresses, starting from $25,000 in the first round to $500,000 in the final round. The strongest link will also get immunity, preventing the others to tactically vote and eliminate them in order to increase their chances of winning.

Supermarket Sweep (original ABC run from 1965-1967)



ABC is bringing back the classic TV game show "Supermarket Sweep," hosted and executive produced by Emmy® Award-nominated comedienne and actress Leslie Jones. The fast-paced and energetic series follows three teams of two as they battle it out using their grocery shopping skills and knowledge of merchandise to win big cash prizes.

I Can See Your Voice (original South Korean run 2015-present)



Brand-new music challenge series I CAN SEE YOUR VOICE is hosted and executive-produced by Ken Jeong. The series also features Emmy® Award-nominated actress Cheryl Hines and Daytime Emmy® Award-winning television host and vocalist Adrienne Bailon-Houghton. All three join a rotating panel of celebrity detectives, comprised of comedians and pop culture experts, and a musical superstar to help one contestant tell the difference between good and bad singers, without ever hearing them sing a note. With $100,000 on the line, the contestant will attempt to weed out the bad “Secret Voices” from the good, based on a series of clues, interrogation and lip synch challenges. In the end, the singer whom the contestant picks will reveal if they are good or bad in a duet performance with the musical superstar, resulting in an amazing musical collaboration or a totally hilarious train wreck.
