Tues 1/3: The Wall (NBC)
Chris Hardwick has hosted a lot of television over the course of his career. He started out on MTV’s Singled Out and currently hosts a number of hit after-show programs for AMC. So when he signs up to host another, you can be sure that it is worth getting a chance. The premise of his new game show The Wall sounds simple enough: There is a large wall four stories high and has the power to dole out up to $3 million. “I can tell you with 100 percent sincerity that this is one of the most emotionally turbulent experiences of my life,” says Hardwick. “It is impossible not to get swept up on this show.” Cleveland Cavaliers star LeBron James serves as surprising executive producer on the program, with his new production company.
