Warmer Weather Brings Sizzling Summer Programming Changes

By Rachel Menendez One of the new shows to be on the look out for is “101 WAYS TO LEAVE A GAME SHOW”, which premieres on ABC Tuesday June 21.

With the warmer weather just around the corner, that means that one TV season is coming to an end and a new one is beginning with new programs a plenty ready to burst forth from your screen.

From the producers of the hit show “Wipeout” comes “101 Ways to Leave a Game Show” which will be hitting screens at 9:00pm on June 21. Based on Endemol’s successful worldwide format, the show will feature contestants competing in one of the most insane game shows in history for a chance to win $50,000.

Contestants will match wits in a series of multiple choice questions, with one contestant being eliminated every round. But unlike any other game show in the world, the eliminated contestant will then be ejected from the show in spectacular fashion, i.e., being flown away strapped to the wing of a biplane, pushed off the top of a moving semi, dragged underwater by a one-ton anchor or yanked off a dock by a speed boat.

“101 Ways to Leave a Game Show” is hosted by Jeff Sutphen (“BrainSurge”).

Another exciting addition to the fold at ABC is “Expedition Impossible”, with its series premiere on Thursday 23 at 9:00pm ET. This show sees 13 teams of three racing in a fun expedition across vast deserts, over snow capped mountains and through raging rivers in the beautifully exotic Kingdom of Morocco. Each week a new stage of the expedition will be revealed to the teams. Will they crumble under the pressure of having to think clearly in the wilds of the great outdoors, or will they find a way to work together to complete the expedition?

After 10 stunning legs of competition with drama, comedy and great characters, one team will cross the finish line first to claim victory. Each winning team member will receive $50,000 ($150,000 total for the team) as well a new Ford Explorer. Adventurer, zoologist, big cat trainer and all around risk taker Dave Salmoni hosts.

“Rookie Blue” returns to TV for its second season premiering on Thursday June 23 at 10:00pm immediately following “Expedition Impossible”.

In “Rookie Blue,” five young and ambitious rookie cops continue to navigate the emotional trials and tribulations of their professional and personal lives. Last summer these rookies hit the streets for the first time with their training officers and learned how to walk the thin blue line.

Now the training wheels are off — more experienced, they’re ready to kick some serious butt. But these rookies are just beginning to realize there are no shortcuts to becoming good at this job. And when you’re a rookie officer, a little knowledge is a dangerous thing

ABC has a whole lot of exciting summer programming ready and it all starts in the upcoming weeks. Keep your eyes peeled to what are surely going to be some of the summer’s hits shows.
