King of the Nerds

TBS has renewed its competition series “King of the Nerds” for season three, the network announced Monday.

Hosts Robert Carradine and Curtis Armstrong will return and also serve as executive producers.

During the competition, the contestants face challenges that test their intellect, ingenuity, skills and pop-culture prowess, with one winning the $100,000 prize.

The second season was executive produced by Ben Silverman and Chris Grant of Electus and Craig Armstrong, Rick Ringbakk and Charles Wachter of 5X5 Media, as well as Carradine and Armstrong.

“King of the Nerds” completed its second season this past March, averaging 1.5 million viewers and more than 1 million adults in the 18-49 demo.

“‘King of the Nerds’ demonstrates the power of nerd culture by drawing not only a fervent fan base but also the youngest audience of any current TBS original,” said Michael Wright, president, head of programming for TBS, TNT and TCM.

The eight ordered episodes are scheduled to air in early 2015.

    Its a great show for me to watch. I wouldn’t mind being a contestant on the show but I know I wouldn’t last long. So here’s a suggestion, why not have 12 seasons of the show, King of the Nerds, and have the winners of the first 11 seasons on season 12 and compete to determine the true King/Queen of the Nerds. please respond
