Jimmy Kimmel, host of the 89th Oscars(R), teams with Banijay Studios North America to produce. Big Fan is based on the hilarious "Who Knows... ?" the celebrity vs. super-fan game segment that originally aired on "Jimmy Kimmel Live." The segment became a viral video success when pop star Katy Perry went up against one of her biggest fans and lost. "Big Fan" premieres MONDAY, JANUARY 9 (10:00-11:00 p.m. EST), immediately following "The Bachelor." Hosted by Andy Richter, each episode of the half-hour, studio-based game show will feature one celebrity and three of his or her fans battling it out to prove who is the ultimate super fan. Contestants will go head-to-head to see who knows more about the episode's featured celebrity. The winner will move on to the final round in an ultimate showdown, celebrity vs. super fan, to see who knows most about the celebrity. If the super fan wins, they will be awarded a priceless experience with the celebrity.
