You are the Weakest Link. Goodbye." Remember that? It became all the rage back in 2001 when Britain's AnneRobinson hosted the America version of "The Weakest Link," a game show that took TV by storm. At least for a year or two.
NBC is bringing back the beloved, British-import game show Weakest Link, with Jane Lynch as host and executive producer. The fast-paced show sees contestants answer general knowledge questions to accumulate prize money over multiple rounds, with "chains" of consecutive correct answers increasing the amount of money that can be won. At the end of each round, the contestants vote to remove one player, dubbed the “Weakest Link," from the game.
“I’ve been a longtime fan of this game-changing quiz show since it first debuted,” Lynch said in a statement. “Each time the phrase ‘You are the Weakest Link. Goodbye.’ passes my lips, it will be with great reverence and delight.”
Production begins later this year. Lynch, who also gained fame on "Glee" and also won two Emmy Awards for Outstanding Reality Host for "Hollywood Game Night."
