Yes, many of us who report on TV news collectively scoffed and audibly groaned when, at last winter’s Television Critics Association press tour, The CW first announced the summer series Oh Sit!, which was described as “musical chairs for adults.”
But now that the network is trickling out some teasers, maybe Oh Sit! could have been better pegged as “Wipeout meets American Ninja Warrior meets musical chairs,” all while an in-house band churns out live tunes.
Carve 22 seconds away from your busy Wednesday to check out this pair of promos, try not to envision Potsie Weber when the call-outs urge you to “Sit on it,” and tell us if maybe, just maybe, you’ll give this 10-episode competition show a look-see when it launches Aug. 15. (And yes, Oh Sit! is very precarious to type; we may have to dial up the language filter some.)
