Patton Oswalt to host U.S. take on "The 1% Club"

Actor and comedian Patton Oswalt has been tapped to host the U.S. version of the popular British game "The 1% Club," which is expected to premiere this spring on Amazon Prime.

In a bit of a surprise, it was also revealed that Amazon Prime found a broadcast partner for the show in Fox, which will "broadcast each episode after its streaming debut." Fox has worked with Amazon Prime before on other projects, including the popular Amazon animated series "Hazbin Hotel," but this appears to be a first-of-its-kind broadcasting deal between the two.

I guess while we're talking about Fox, at least part of their summer schedule is out. There is no mention of The 1% Club.

The game shows:

May 16: I Can See Your Voice
Don't Forget The Lyrics

May 28: Beat Shazam (with Jamie Foxx back as host)
The Quiz With Balls

June 3: Name That Tune

As I've said, while The Quiz With Balls sounds awful IMO, at least Fox is doing a new game show that isn't music identification.

Not surprising, as they just announced the show. I doubt they could get it produced in time for summer.

Besides, Fox is going to have two additional hours a week to fill starting in October when WWE Smackdown leaves the network.

The first season is already in the can.

Contestant tryouts were back in May and June of 2023, and it was originally supposed to tape in July 2023 but was delayed because of the strikes -- it ended up taping in February.

(Potential contestants were only told that it was a "quiz show for a major streaming service," but from the sample questions I was given over Zoom, I figured out what it was. I didn't make it on as a contestant -- they called me to be a standby for one of the last couple of taping days, but it was very short notice for a very early call time for a promised payment of only $100, and I actually have a 9-to-5 day job like a regular person.)

Amazon released its premiere date schedule for May, and it appears "The 1% Club" will debut on the streamer May 23 with new episodes airing weekly. The show will premiere on Fox June 1.

I saw a FOX start date of June 3.  That date makes more sense since it's a Monday vs. a Saturday, and Name That Tune returns that date.

I echo what Clay said.  Having seen the UK and Aussie shows, I am very eager for this.

It is June 3 on Fox. Typo on my part -- apologies.

Show I tried out for and didn't get on.  Usually I'm just "whatever" about that.  This one, I was disappointed.  Legitimately my favorite import format in a LONG time.

We now have a promo spot. (Spoiler alert: One question and answer are shown.)

So....this is being produced for Amazon Prime, but Fox is airing it as a summer replacement? Is that how it's gonna work?

Amazon and Fox have a deal where Amazon produces and airs the show first, then Fox airs each episode a little over a week after Amazon does.

Will there be a difference in how the show looks on Amazon and Fox? For instance, on the Australian version, it's common for host Jim Jefferies to swear like a sailor. I'm curious if we'll get Patton Oswalt dropping the occasional F-bomb on the Amazon broadcast and be completely sanitized for Fox. Also curious if commercial loads will be the same for both Amazon and Fox, or we'll get, say, a "longer" version on Amazon that doesn't fit the hour-long time slot for Fox.

Prepositional phrase completely unnecessary. :)
