'The Misery Index' (TBS)

Everyone has their embarrassing moments and sadly, the only thing they leave behind is awful memories. Luckily for us, TBS has come up with another season of 'The Misery Index' where people will have a chance to make some money out of their misery. As strange as it might sound, it is true!

The show allows you to relive your bad moments while also judging the embarrassing situations from the lives of other people in a bid to earn some money and it is sure to keep you entertained!


Release date

The second season of 'The Misery Index' is going to premiere on Thursday, May 14 on TBS at 10:30 pm ET. 


The show will have two teams trying to rank an embarrassing situation on the misery index that is developed by a team of therapists. Both the players will get a chance to rank the event on a scale of 1-100 and whoever comes to the closest guess gets a cash prize. 


Each item will have three members out of which one would be a non-celebrity while the other two would be members of the famous comedy troupe 'The Tenderloins'. TBS describes the show as, "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 misfortune."

This Season has a lot more to offer than Season 1. This Season will have themed episodes while also inviting one of the Tenderloins’ family members on the show.

Jameela Jamil will be hosting the show and bringing her goofy personality to keep the viewers and the guests entertained. In an interview with Vulture, Jamil explained why she would be a perfect fit for the show. "As someone whose life is just a series of mortifying incidents strung together, it's going to be brilliant to take a break from my mishaps, and feast in the disasters of others. I cannot wait for the misery to commence. This show is brilliantly ridiculous," she said.

The Tenderloins will also bring their fun element to the game show. With Joseph "Joe" Gatto, Salvatore "Sal" Vulcano, James "Murr" Murray, and Brian "Q" Quinn, there is no doubt that they would fill the room with laughter and element of fun. 





With an all-new Season, the misery content is more on the show. With instances about a mother-in-law getting hit by a bullet to a woman farting during surgery is setting the operation room in the fire, this show will make you believe some of the things that you would have never thought were true.
