TBS has set Thursday, May 14, for the Season 2 premiere of its comedy game show The Misery Index. We’re also getting a look at the official trailer.
Hosted by Jameela Jamil with comedy group the Tenderloins as panelists, The Misery Index debuted in 2019 with strong ratings, reaching more than 38 million viewers across linear, VOD, and digital platforms.
Inspired by the card game Sh*t Happens, The Misery Index features teams competing against each other by attempting to rate hilarious and miserable real-life events based on the “misery index,” a ranking system created by a team of psychologists. This season will feature special themed episodes including dueling grandmothers, a visit from one of the Tenderloins’ family members and a showdown between motherlands.
The Misery Index was developed by comedy writer Andy Breckman, along with Ben & Dan Newmark for Grandma’s House Entertainment. The series is executive produced by Breckman, the Newmarks, Brian Quinn, James Murray, Sal Vulcano, Joe Gatto, Michael Bloom for Bongo Pictures, Howard Klein for 3Arts Entertainment and Jack Martin, who also serves as showrunner.
