Spike TV Greenlights New Late-Night Comedic Series 'MANswers'
LOS ANGELES, April 3 -- Spike TV answers all of the
burning questions men have been dying to ask, but never found socially
acceptable in a new nine-episode comedic late-night series, "MANswers." The
fast-paced series works to satisfy the curiosity of Spike viewers by asking
the tough questions only guys would appreciate and taking the viewers on a
wild ride to find out the answers.
In each episode, "MANswers" races through re-enactments, expert one-on-
ones and man-on-the-street interviews to educate Spike viewers on the taboo
topics in terms only guys can relate to. The truth is never what you would
expect and will inevitably end up being talked about around the water
cooler the next day. This half-hour original series premieres on Spike TV
in the Fall.
"We've set out to answer the questions guys really want to know, such
as, how long can you survive in space without a spacesuit?," said Sharon
Levy, Senior Vice President of Alternative Programming, Spike TV. "At the
end of a hard day, why think about real life issues when you can find out
how to blow up an implant?"
Some sample questions that will be posed this season include: Can you
beat a breathalyzer?; What's the best human organ to eat if you are a
cannibal?; How long can you survive on beer alone?; Can you beat a drug
test?; and How tough are silicone implants?
