Yes, a ‘Musical Chairs’ Game Show Is Coming
The CW announced on Thursday that the network had ordered 10 episodes of the musical chairs-based game ‘Oh Sit!.’ Yes, this is what TV has come to.
Granted, it’s not simply musical chairs as you remember from when you were a child, and will instead be a trumped-up “extreme” version of the game. Here’s how The CW explains it:
[‘Oh Sit!]’ is a high-stakes, high-octane musical chairs competition in which 20 daredevils race head to head through five obstacle course-style eliminations as they each compete to claim a chair — to the sounds of a live band.
Since this means they are now officially out of ideas for new game shows, expect other childhood competitions to be adapted for similar small screen fun. Here is a list of games that will no doubt soon become game shows.
Pin the tail on the donkey
Ring around the roses
Duck, duck goose
Kick the can
Mother, may I?
