DESCRIPTION:
(from TBS's press release, December 2019) TBS is ordering another dose of misery with a second season of the outrageously entertaining comedy game show The Misery Index. Currently in its first season, the original series is a top-five new cable comedy and has reached nearly 28 million viewers across linear, VOD, and digital platforms. Inspired by the card game Sh*t Happens, The Misery Index is the only game show where contestants can make a fortune out of other people's mis-fortune. Teams compete against each other by attempting to rate hilarious and miserable real-life events based on the "misery index", a ranking system created by a team of therapists. Jameela Jamil will return as host along with stars of truTV's Impractical Jokers, comedy troupe The Tenderloins - Brian "Q" Quinn, James "Murr" Murray, Joe Gatto and Sal Vulcano - as panelists.
