CW orders musical chairs game show 'Oh Sit!'

Posted on

The CW has ordered 10 episodes of a game show called Oh Sit! to debut later this season.

Described as “musical chairs for adults,” each episode has 20 contestants racing through five obstacle course-style eliminations as they each compete to claim a chair — while a live band plays. The final contestant left sitting wins a cash prize. Host, details and premiere date coming at a later date.

The CW has a rather amazing track record of unsuccessfully launching unscripted shows. While the network’s UPN- inherited America’s Next Top Model has performed solidly, other attempts at reality TV haven’t been able to capture the show’s female-skewing 18-34 demo (or, really, any demo). The action-style Oh Sit! is a shift from most previous attempts because its concept isn’t clearly targeting women. Could it break through?
