DESCRIPTION:
(from TBS's press release, March 2018) An hour-long block of comedy, competition and hip-hop returns to TBS on Sunday, April 15 with the hit unscripted series Snoop Dogg Presents The Joker's Wild at 10:00 p.m. (ET/PT) and Drop the Mic at 10:30 p.m. (ET/PT). The network renewed both series after they quickly emerged as the top two new unscripted cable comedies in 2017, reaching an average of 2.7M viewers per episode across TBS's linear, VOD, and digital platforms, and earning over 250 million social and YouTube views to date. Drop the Mic is based on the enormously popular segment from the Emmy(R) winning and viral hit The Late Late Show with James Corden. The TBS series, hosted by Method Man and Hailey Baldwin, pits celebrities from the worlds of entertainment, music, sports and pop culture against each other in a rap battle royale, packed with lyrically creative genius and "I can't believe they just said that" moments. At the end of each head-to-head battle, the studio audience votes to determine the winner. Currently in production, with more top talent match-ups to come, the early bookings slated to appear this season include Shaquille O'Neal vs. Ken Jeong, Luis Fonsi vs. Terry Crews, Molly Ringwald vs. Jon Cryer, Jerry Springer vs. Ricki Lake, Assassination of Gianni Versace star Darren Criss vs. Stranger Things star Gaten Matarazzo, Jay Pharoah vs. Marlon Wayans, Luis Guzman vs. Gabriel Iglesias, Lindsey Vonn vs. Gus Kenworthy, and "Glow" vs. "Pro" which includes Glow cast members Jackie Tohn, Kate Nash, Sunita Mani and Britney Young battling against WWE wrestlers Nikki Bella, Brie Bella, Carmella and Alicia Fox.
