TBS enters dangerous territory with Bam Margera
Posted January 23, 2013
From Jackass to Bad Ass is a short leap in words, but probably a hazardous one when both involve Bam Margera.
TBS today announced that Jackass star Margera will headline Bam's Bad Ass Game Show, which will premiere in 2014. The cable network ordered six episodes.
In the "over-the-top competition series," competitors will try to win $10,000 by participating in "incredibly demented, potentially dangerous and occasionally painful challenges, like answering trivia questions while dangling above a pool of trash-filled water or dropping a watermelon on a target after being shot from a cannon," according to the TBS announcement.
Margera and his friends will design and demonstrate the challenges.
As TBS giveth, it also taketh away, deciding not to order a second season of Wedding Band, a comedy that stars Brian Austin Green and Harold Perrineau. It averaged 1.1 million viewers in the last of its 10 episodes on Saturday.
