Al Roker Summary
- Show Closed: September 1, 2015
- Game Show
- TV Broadcast
Author, weatherman and TV personality Al Roker collaborated with NBC to host another TV show aside from his gigs at NBC Today and his movie roles (over 25 to date). Al Roker's new game show, The Al Roker Show was to resemble the format of The Newlywed Game in which couples ask questions and test their spouse's knowledge about each other. The show was updated for the times and included gay couples and unmarried couples. The weatherman collaborated with NBC to shoot the pilot, which gathered roughly 50 audience members in Danbury, Connecticut. These people were recruited based on demographic characteristics such as race, gender, and age. The taped show was then shown to test audiences to view and their feedback allowed the show producers to tweak the formula for maximum effect. The final taped shows were then shown to NBC Universal studio execs who ultimately passed on the show. The Al Roker Show was announced to be broadcast in the Fall 2015 on NBC daytime but never made it to the TV screen. It is unclear whether NBC plans to continue with this project at this time. This show may join the long list of TV show pilots that never make it to air.
Al Roker Cancellation Details
The Al Roker Game Show was cancelled before it had the chance to air on NBC. The weatherman's game show did not make the cut, and was called off as the show was in pilot. Very little is known about the show, as it never saw the light of day.
