Weakest Link

HOW/WHEN & WHERE TO WATCH: 8 p.m. on NBC

Series Debut

“You are the weakest link, goodbye.” America’s most cutthroat game show is back, this time with Jane Lynch at the helm, dishing out quippy one-liners as contestants must answer trivia and vote on who to cut from their team. Lynch, who’s sharpened her wits hosting Hollywood Game Night, tells EW it was always her dream to host The Weakest Link. “I love trivia. It’s my absolute favorite thing in the world,” she says. “I love the original show. I watched it on NBC, and then I watched it on YouTube when I knew I was getting this job. But I like that rapid fire, kind of game celebrity, but with a higher reference level…We do a general wash of trivia and some of it gets pretty hard.” —Maureen Lee Lenker
