Let it be known that the evening of August 15th was the night in which the world stopped asking, “When, oh when will musical chairs be less mundane, more extreme, and, most importantly, broadcast on a second-tier national network?”

Tonight premieres Oh Sit! a game show that is touting itself musical chairs, that game that stopped being fun to play at age 3, with a twist. An EXTREME twist. I have no further details, sadly.

Nor do I want them.

If you’re at all curious about who the ad wizards are that came up with this one, then you’ll want to budget 45 seconds from 8:06 to 8:06:45 to click over to the channel, say “Huh. That’s more extreme than the musical chairs contests I recall,” then get back to watching preseason Jacksonville Jaguars football, or whatever.

CW now owes me $10,000 because I just wrote this show's tagline.

In an effort to see how many 50 year-old men they can get to reach for the remote in disgust while mumbling about who puts this crap on the air, the CW has greenlit a musical chairs game show, which we initially reported was titled Extreme Musical Chairs. So now, the CW brings you Oh, Sit!, which is cute enough to make you momentarily smile and forget how f*cking stupid this show is going to be. This idea seriously had to have been picked up off the floor of the Portlandia writers’ room.

After four months, the producers decided that while a game show depicting games of musical chairs was still an excellent, excellent idea, the name “Extreme Musical Chairs” didn’t really shift the paradigm or speak to Joe Six-Pack. As such, they decided that the name should speak to a Joe Six-Pack, provided that Joe Six-Pack belonged to a Williamsburg softball league and that six pack was made up of Pabst tall boys.
