HOST JOEL MCHALE IS READY FOR EVEN HIGHER STAKES
ON THE SEASON 2 PREMIERE OF ABC'S 'CARD SHARKS,'
SUNDAY, OCT. 18
"206" - Joel McHale returns as host for the second season of "Card Sharks," premiering SUNDAY, OCT. 18 (10:00-11:00 p.m. EDT), on ABC. A suspenseful game where a fortune can be won on the turn of a single playing card! The road to glory and riches begins with two players who face off in a head-to-head elimination game with the goal of one player making it to the life-changing money card round. In the money card round, the winning player has to make gut-wrenching decisions and risk it all to win it all. Ultimately, players can either take their earned cash and quit or continue wagering for a chance to take home a major cash prize. Episodes can also be viewed the next day on demand and on Hulu.
Host McHale is joined by contestants Rhea Watson (hometown: Las Vegas, Nevada), Evan Phillips (hometown: Monterey, California), Aaron Luna (hometown: Carson, California) and Ashley Banaga (hometown: San Diego, California).
"Card Sharks" is produced by Fremantle. Scott St. John is showrunner and executive producer, and Joel McHale and Jennifer Mullin are also executive producers.
