The Quite Interesting Sandi Toksvig Era Begins

New "QI" Host Begins Tonight
From Evening Standard

TV’s smartest quiz panel show QI is about to return for a brand new series on BBC Two – and it’s bringing a major change.

Original host Stephen Fry stepped down last year after over a decade on the show, and now a new host has taken over.

The brilliantly clever and witty Sandi Toksvig has stepped up as the new face of the show – and she’s already giving Alan Davies some grief.

In a teaser clip of the new episode, Toksvig delves into the origins of the word ‘quizzing’ and proves that she’s more than a match for Fry’s clever-clogs mantle.

“When they say the police are ‘quizzing’ the suspect, that’s wrong isn’t it?” raises Davies.

“No, that’s from ‘inquisitive’ and ‘inquisition’,” Toksvig corrects him.

Davies jokes: “You’ve got it. You’re in the right chair. I’ve got that cold feeling now!”

“QI is my favorite television program both to watch and to be on, so this is absolutely my dream job,” she said when she was appointed in October last year.

“Who knows what lies ahead? It should all be quite interesting.”

"Rocky Horror" No Match for Football
From TV Line

Fox’s Rocky Horror Picture Show remake on Thursday drew 5 million total viewers and a 1.7 rating, more than doubling the Rosewood/Pitch combo’s most recent performance yet falling well shy of Grease: Live‘s January numbers (12.2 mil/4.3).

Among TV’s recent musical spectacles, Rocky came closest to NBC’s Peter Pan Live, which did 9.2 mil and a 2.4 in December 2014. TVLine readers gave the Laverne Cox-fronted production an average grade of “C.”

Elsewhere on the night….
ABC | Grey’s Anatomy (8.1 mil/2.1) was steady, while Notorious (4 mil/0.9) and HTGAWM (4.3 mil/1.2) are each currently up a tenth.

THE CW | Legends (1.8 mil/0.6) held steady, while Supernatural (1.6 mil/0.6) fell 25 percent.

NBC | Superstore (4.2 mil/1.0) slipped two tenths, The Good Place (3.8 mil/0.9) dropped three tenths and Chicago Med (6.6 mil/1.2) dipped one tenth, but The Blacklist (5.3 mil/1.1) was steady.

CBS | Thursday Night Football (10.5 mil/3.0) matched last week’s fast nationals.

Oxygen Pits Bestie vs. Ex
"Battle of the Ex-Besties" to Play December 6
From The Futon Critic

Stakes and emotions run high on Oxygen Media's newest competition series "The Battle of the Ex-Besties" premiering Tuesday, December 6 at 11pm ET/PT. Hosted by Sibley Scoles ("E! News"), the series follows fourteen former BFFs who are forced to confront - and hopefully forget - past differences in order to win a life-changing $100,000 grand prize. Will these frenemies give their relationship a fighting chance, or part ways once and for all? For a sneak peek of the series, please visit:

"We are very excited about this project that delves into the true value of friendships. Viewers are thrust into these relationships that are already at their lowest points, opening the door for a number of possibilities for their friendships," said Rod Aissa, Executive Vice President of Original Programming and Development, Oxygen Media. "By adding a grand prize to the emotionally and physically-demanding experience, we are tapping into the drama that our audience loves."

As fourteen contestants look to dominate the battle, nothing can prepare them for the moment they discover that they've each been paired with an ex-best friend. This tumultuous competition series puts them under the same roof and ultimately pushes them to revisit a shared history that will either help or hurt them in overcoming a series of daunting challenges. Should a team lose a challenge, they will have the option to compete for $50,000, or leave the competition for good. Two consecutive losses result in elimination. With betrayals, lies and past accusations looming, they alone will determine the price of friendship.

Born and raised in Northern California, Sibley Scoles found entertainment and music early on and made plans to take her passions to the next level. She is currently a correspondent for E! News and previously served as an on-air host for iHeart Radio's Real 92.3 FM. In 2011, Scoles was hired by Sean "Diddy" Combs to be the first female host of his music television show, Revolt TV, and is also a successful musician in her own right - having toured with top performers such as Taio Cruz. Additionally Scoles wrote and recorded the original song, "Donuts," which was a radio hit and caught the attention of fashion designer, Stella McCartney, who licensed and used the song in her Paris Fashion Week soundtrack.

CBS Gets Crushed

Deal with King to Bring App to TV as a Game Show
From the Futon Critic

CBS has ordered CANDY CRUSH, a new one-hour, live action game show series based on the globally renowned mobile game franchise. CBS, Lionsgate and King will join together on the new format created and executive produced by Matt Kunitz that will be distributed domestically by CBS Television Distribution and internationally by Lionsgate.

In the game Candy Crush Saga, players match colorful candies in combinations of three or more to win points, defeat obstacles and progress through more than 2,000 levels. Candy Crush Saga and its sister title, Candy Crush Soda Saga, are two of the top 10 grossing mobile games in the U.S. On average, 18 billion game rounds are played every month around the world.*

In the series, the game that has become a worldwide phenomenon comes to life as teams of two people use their wits and physical agility to compete on enormous, interactive game boards featuring next generation technology to conquer CANDY CRUSH and be crowned the champions. A host will be announced at a later date.

"We are huge fans of Candy Crush and, like so many others, we know the 'rush' of advancing to the next level of the game," said Glenn Geller, President, CBS Entertainment. "We're excited to work with Lionsgate and King to adapt one of the world's most popular and entertaining game franchises for television and make it available to its massive, passionate fan base who can watch and play along at home."

"The Candy Crush franchise is a world-renowned property, so when the head of our interactive and games division, Peter Levin, brought this IP to Lionsgate, we instantly knew it would make an incredibly visual, physical and fun TV program," said Kevin Beggs, Chairman, Lionsgate Television Group. "CBS is a leader in unscripted television, which makes it the ideal home for CANDY CRUSH, and we're very happy to have Matt shepherding the production as we partner with the team at King on this series with the tremendous second-screen potential."

"We have a very entrepreneurial culture at Lionsgate, so we look for awesome worldwide IP like Candy Crush and work together across divisions to bring it to fans on every platform possible. Everyone who has played it knows that Candy Crush is an exciting, visual switcher game with great characters, and Matt and our alternative television team are working closely with Sebastian Knutsson and his creative team at King to bring it to life on CBS," said Peter Levin, President, Interactive Ventures and Games for Lionsgate, and executive producer on the series. Levin worked with Striker Entertainment's Russell Binder, King's licensing agent in the U.S., to facilitate licensing Candy Crush IP for this television show.

"The Candy Crush franchise lends itself perfectly to the kind of larger-than-life, physical game shows that I love to produce and CBS is the perfect home for it," said executive producer Matt Kunitz ("Wipeout," "Fear Factor"). "As a Candy Crush Saga player myself, I am excited to amp up the action and visuals in our huge Candy Crush Arena."

"The Candy Crush franchise has been loved by players around the world on mobile so it's very exciting to be working with Matt and the team to bring the fun and challenge of the Candy Crush games to television. We hope our players will be entertained by what is set to be a high-energy, challenging game show," said Sebastian Knutsson, Chief Creative Officer, King, and executive producer of CANDY CRUSH.

CANDY CRUSH will be produced by Pulse Creative in association with Lionsgate Television, King Ltd. and CBS Television Studios. Matt Kunitz, Peter Levin, Russell Binder, Nicki Sheard, VP Brand at King, and Sebastian Knutsson will serve as executive producers. Knutsson is King's Chief Creative Officer and is one of the founders of the company. He created Candy Crush Saga.
