Hollywood square Tom Bergeron has been tapped to host the upcoming Fox reality special “Since You’ve Been Gone.”
The LMNO Prods. backdoor pilot, which airs Sept. 11 on Fox, removes players from civilization for a week and then has them compete to see who can correctly answer questions about current events and what happened in the personal lives of their friends and relatives (Daily Variety, June 22).
Bergeron, who hosts the King World strip “Hollywood Squares,” tied with “The Price Is Right’s” Bob Barker earlier this year for gameshow host honors at the Daytime Emmy Awards.
Bergeron’s credits also include the FX daytime strip “After Breakfast,” which later moved to Fox.
