"The Chase" officially a go for ABC

ABC confirms that the "Jeopardy GOATs" (Jennings, Holzhauer, Rutter) will be the chasers. Nine episodes ordered, so presumably each chaser gets three games.

Sara Haines from "The View" will host. She previously hosted that third hour of GMA with Michael Strahan that no one watched.


Also, ABC released the logo for the show ...

Looking at that logo, I'm wondering if somehow GSN is going to end up pulling off the better version that its network counterpart
This signature is currently under construction.

....and this is why I can't stand the community sometimes. No offense, but we got an official announcement an hour ago, and you're already hobbling the show in your mind. Over a logo.

Vin Rubino's taking over. This is the same guy over Pyramid and Snoop Dogg's Joker's Wild. Plus, considering the success of the original US series, I would be hard pressed to find a reason why they would be incentivized in jazzing up the game past adding the Jeopardy GOAT contenders.

This logo is pretty appropos for primetime- it's shiny, slick, and they even included the chase arrows. I'm convinced we're going to be fine. Really wish they would have included a chaser of color, but I'm convinced they'll remedy that with a S2 renewal.

I'm only familiar with the U.S. version and its one Chaser -- on other versions of the show, did each Chaser have a different personality? I can envision James and Brad playing up being the heel, but I don't see Ken as the villain type.

I totally can. That smug sarcastic vibe alone alienates people.
Still crazy after all these years...but that's okay.

Insofar as you can peel back personality over the course of an hour every day I would say that Mark isn't the same as Anne and neither are the same as Shaun and the way they convey that they are the spoiler and there to ruin your fun is different in a fashion.

Im not usually one for format change - but in this case - i would hope they could do some end game with the "Beat the Chasers" format. 60 secs vs 60 secs for a million.

Format changes? I am kinda scared i always enjoy the end part of The Chase.

I wonder are they going to use the same set it change it to a social distance set.
