Amazon Prime has been quite busy with game shows lately. First it was the U.S. take on "The 1% Club" followed by Travis Kelce helming a "5th Grader" reboot. Now this ...

Based on the description, this sounds like Michael Davies's "World Series of Pop Culture" with a "Jeopardy" bow on top. No word on host, actual format or premiere.


We also have "Wish List Games" coming to Prime as well ...

https://deadline.com/2024/05/amazon-unscripted-series-orders-1235914915/

Hosted by Nick Cannon with the assistance of "influencer" Lele Pons (as I'm old, I don't know who that is. I'm pretty sure this person is not one of Cannon's 75 or so kids), this show has contestants competing to win everything on their Amazon Wish List, up to $25,000. And the show is 30 minutes in length, per Deadline.

The show will launch in more than 240 countries and territories. Itís a new twist on the classic gameshow and will focus on categories from alternative rock to The Avengers, from Broadway to MMA and Gen Z to Zendaya.
Welp. There goes my chances. :P

/Still plan to try out
"I just wanna give a shoutout to my homies in their late-30s who are watching this on Paramount+ right now, cause they couldn't stay up late enough to watch it live!"

Now celebrating his 21st season on GSF!

My reactive thought was a three-round game with each round dedicated to either music, movies, or TV and played by one member of each team.
This signature is currently under construction.

Anyone having trouble logging in? It says my email/password are invalid, it won't let me log in using Facebook, and I have yet to receive a reset password email. Wonder if the site isn't as ready as they thought?

I experienced the same things. I made a new account and  that seemed to work.

Damn...now the site is down altogether. I guess they didn't expect as much of a response. I'll try again later tonight.

It might not actually be ready for applications yet. Seems like it might be some sort of testing site. It came up high in a Google search for Pop Culture Jeopardy though.

Applications for Pop Culture Jeopardy appear to be officially open now:

I would totally apply for this if it were individual contestants, but I could never find two other people who would want to be on a team with me.
