TBS Cancels ‘King of the Nerds’ Reality Series

TBS has pulled the plug on its reality-competition series “King of the Nerds” after three seasons.

The show produced by Electus featured “nerd off” competitions among teams of contestants vying for the ultimate title of “King of the Nerds.” Robert Carradine and Curtis Armstrong, stars of the 1984 comedy “Revenge of the Nerds,” served as hosts. Armstrong announced the cancellation via Twitter on Friday.

“Nerds” wrapped its most recent eight-episode run in March.

The departure of “Nerds” is no surprise as the new regime at Turner has vowed to make significant changes in the tone of TBS’ comedy programming. Earlier this week TBS began its promo push for the upcoming late-night talk show hosted by “Daily Show” alum Samantha Bee, “Full Frontal.”
