Superhuman First Look: New Fox Competition Celebrates 'Ordinary People With Extraordinary Abilities'

Mere mortals need not apply for Fox’s upcoming Superhuman — but you can get a taste of the new game-show special via this exclusive first look.

The two-hour event (airing Jan. 4 at 8/7c) tests 12 people with “extraordinary” (think: highly impressive party-trick) skills. As these folks show off their talents, the audience — and a panel of personalities — decide who’s deserving of a $100,000 prize.

Kal Penn (House) hosts; Mary Lynn Rajskub (24), boxer Mike Tyson and brain surgeon Dr. Rahul Jandial make up the panel.

In the sneak peek above, Penn and Rajskub walk you through the special’s concept and introduce you to some of the talents on parade, including contortion, extreme powers of perception and lightning-quick math prowess.

In the words of Tyson: “This is spooky stuff, man.”
