TBS’ new comedy game show The Misery Index will premiere on Tuesday, October 22nd at 10pm ET / PT. Inspired by the card game Sh*t Happens, The Misery Index is the only game show where contestants can make a fortune out of other people’s mis-fortune. Jameela Jamil stars as the show’s host with The Tenderloins comedy troupe and stars of truTV’s Impractical Jokers – Brian “Q” Quinn, James “Murr” Murray, Joe Gatto and Sal Vulcano – starring as recurring panelists. The Misery Index trailer debuted this evening to a room full of fans at the first-ever Impractical Jokers San Diego Comic-Con® International panel.
The game will feature two teams, each consisting of one contestant and two Tenderloins. Teams will compete in a game of stakes ranking hysterically miserable real-life experiences — from getting stuck overnight in an elevator to walking in on your grandparents having sex — on a scale of 1-100 based on our Misery Index, a ranking system created by a team of therapists.
