Congrats to THE GOOD PLACE’s Jameela Jamil who will be returning to her TV hosting roots as the host of TBS’ upcoming game show, THE MISERY INDEX! From Deadline:

Jamil “will serve as the show’s ringleader, delivering entertainingly cringeworthy questions to each team using her quick-witted humor and unwavering ability to call things as she sees them,” according to TBS. She’ll be joined by previously announced The Tenderloins comedy troupe and stars of TBS sibling truTV’s Impractical Jokers Brian “Q” Quinn, James “Murr” Murray, Joe Gatto and Sal Vulcano, who will be featured as recurring panelists.

The game show, inspired by the card game Sh*t Happens, will feature two teams, each consisting of one contestant and two Tenderloins. Teams will compete against each other by attempting to rate hilarious and miserable real-life events on a scale of 1-100 based on the “Misery Index,” a ranking system created by a team of therapists. For example, is getting a third degree burn worse than seeing your father naked? Is it worse than dropping your phone in the toilet?

“As someone whose life is just a series of mortifying incidents strung together, it’s going to be brilliant to take a break from my own mishaps, and feast in the disasters of others,” said Jamil. “I cannot wait for the misery to commence. This show is brilliantly ridiculous.”
