Jameela Jamil to return as host of the comedy game show

TBS has renewed the game show “The Misery Index” for a second season, the network announced Tuesday.

“The Good Place” star Jameela Jamil will return as host of the show’s second season along with panelists Brian “Q” Quinn, James “Murr” Murray, Joe Gatto and Sal Vulcano.

The show features two teams, each consisting of one contestant and two panelists, who compete against each other by rating other people’s miserable real-life experiences on a scale of 1-100, based on the titular “Misery Index.”

“Jameela and The Tenderloins have wholeheartedly translated the most miserable of mishaps into absolute amusement, giving the audience and contestants permission to be entertained by these misfortunes,” said Brett Weitz, general manager for TNT, TBS, & truTV. “We couldn’t be more excited to continue our relationship with these five brilliantly talented comedians.”

“The Misery Index” was developed by comedy writer Andy Breckman (“Monk”), along with Ben & Dan Newmark of Grandma’s House Entertainment. It is executive produced by Breckman, the Newmarks, Adam Bold of Grandma’s House Entertainment, Howard Klein of 3 Arts Entertainment, Vin Rubino and Rob Anderson.
