CBS will take a risk with "Loteria Loca," a format from Jeff Apploff and Warner Bros. inspired by the game of chance "Loteria." Expected to air next season, it will be fronted by actor Jaime Camil of "Jane the Virgin" fame.

Unlike the Bingo that has numbers on ping-pong balls, the Mexican Lotería involves images on cards.

If Lingo comes back, I think I found the perfect companion…

Will it feature a referee somewhere in the audience shouting "¡Noooooooo Lotería!"?
