Spike TV has greenlit 10 episodes of a new half-hour game show called “Caraoke Showdown” for 2017, hosted and executive produced by former “The Office” star Craig Robinson. Reminiscent of “Cash Cab,” “Caraoke Showdown” will feature Robinson posing as a driver, picking up unsuspecting contestants who are along for a very unique ride upon realizing they are on a karaoke-inspired game show. During various rounds of game play, contestants must belt out their favorite tunes, finish the lyrics or act out songs for cash. Fun surprises add to the excitement as the contestants never know what’s going to happen next.

Howie Mandel will serve as executive producer along with Alice Dickens-Koblin, Peter Herschko, Brian Veskosky and Core Media Group serving as the production company.

“Caraoke Showdown” is the second game show Spike has greenlit in 2016 following “That Awkward Game Show,” hosted by Jeff Dye, which goes into production this summer and premieres in the fall.

  1. Price is Right was my favorite while growing up. Always watched it right before it was time to head to the pool! I also created my own pricing games and played as the contestant AND Bob Barker. LOL Funny how easy it was to entertain ourselves in the 70’s and 80’s w/o all the technology of today. 🙂
