So TBS is developing a new competition reality show called King of the Nerds (debuting January 17). On one hand (from TV Line):
Hosted by Revenge of the Nerds alumni Robert Carradine and Curtis Armstrong, King of the Nerds will pit 11 competitors in challenges that test their “intellect, ingenuity, skills and pop-culture prowess.” The nerds will first compete as teams before moving on to individual challenges, all with their eyes on a $100,000 prize.
However, on the other hand:
Star Trek favorite George Takei, along with Kevin Smith and the filmmaker’s frequent collaborator/Jay to his Silent Bob, Jason Mewes, will be among the guest judges on the TBS reality competition.
