Found it interesting that the spot that ran on Sunday proclaimed it a "CBS original." I know they want to convey these aren't reruns from cable, but instead it comes across as the show never existed before

All sorts of shows are touted as "original" series in the "exclusive to this channel/network/app" sense. e.g. Netflix's branding their exclusives may have popularized that.

It's possible, but I know ABC's been doing that for at least a decade as well by starting their shows with "AN ABC STUDIOS PRODUCTION". To me it's a nice throwback to a different era, when Lorimar and Quinn Martin did the same during their opening credits.

I see that CBS is really pushing Lingo in promos.  At least 4 times within the early NFL games today.

Small data point: An ad for Lingo just showed up on the Buzzr stream on Pluto. No biggie, but it's the first one I've seen.

Clearly, they didn't think they were running nearly enough CBS ads.

the Lingo promos almost outnumber the East New York ads!

I'd like to know what the gang thinks about the show.  The ratings seem to be declining week after week.  IIRC, episode five did well, and had a couple of amazing come from behind victories.

I'm enjoying it.  The different rounds give it some variety.  Ru is entertaining and moves the game along well.  I do miss the bingo aspect, but that ship has sailed.  I also like that there are two separate games and that they don't stretch a single game our for the entire hour (looking at you, Celebrity J!) :D

It's a mess of poor formatting and baffling production choices, and I made it through one episode and 10 minutes before dumping my series recording.

Itís okay but it feels too much like an event, if that makes sense. I know primetime shows are produced a little differently, but I donít need all the theatrics for a word game. Also not a fan of the bonus round being a competition where the runners-up leave with nothing. But thatís a gripe I have with most game shows.

RuPaul is a decent host, however.

The game doesn't have enough variation or randomness to provide incentive to watch the next week, and what the game does have isn't presented in an interesting manner.
This signature is currently under construction.

Last 4 eps of Season 1 have been pulled from the schedule and will air with Season 2 (I suspect this is insurance against a possible writer's strike so they'll have original stuff to show)
