Rebooting The Joe Schmo Show has been officially announced and a reboot of the iconic television show from the early 2000s returns on TBS.
When is The Joe Schmo Show Reboot coming out?
TBS announced Wednesday that the prank television series will be bringing back in a revised format. The reboot of The Joe Schmo Show premieres next year and will be hosted by five-time Emmy Award nominee Cat Deeley.
Similar to its predecessor, The Joe Schmo Show again takes a normal person and surrounds them with a cast of actors, all pretending to be normal people on a game show trying to win a prize.

“When The Joe Schmo Show launched 20 years ago, it was ahead of its time,” said Jason Sarlanis, president of Turner Networks, ID and HLN, Linear & Streaming. “By reimagining this classic for a modern, savvy audience, we have an opportunity to comment on reality television’s often absurd and hilarious tropes in a way that our viewers will enjoy.”
The original series premiered on the Spike cable network in 2003 and ran for three seasons. However, the show’s first season became its most notorious. Featuring a litany of actors who would go on to become hugely popular – including Kristen Wiig, David Hornsby, Ralph Garman and Lance Krall – the season culminated with contestant David Gould winning $100,000.
