Joel McHale is set to host the series premiere of "Card Sharks," "102," premiering WEDNESDAY, JUNE 12 (9:00-10:00 p.m. EDT), on The ABC Television Network, streaming and on demand. A game where one turn of a playing card can make you a winner or a loser!
The road to glory and riches begins with two players facing off in a head-to-head elimination race where the winning player claims a $10,000 cash prize and a chance to turn that amount into a life-changing payday.

The player leaves the game with whatever amount of money they have in their bank after their prediction, and results are revealed on the flip of their seventh and final card.
