ABC renews "The Gong Show" and Mike Myers pretends none of us knew he was hosting it

The Gong Show made its comeback and ABC wants more.

The variety series's revival scored well enough to warrant a second season. The Will Arnett-produced show will go back into production sometime this year says The Wrap. Oh and Mike Myers is the host, Tommy Maitland, playing a character. Think Jim Carrey in Man on the Moon and Subsequently Jim and Andy.

Said Mike Myers on the "reveal:" “Being the host of ‘The Gong Show’ is a blast! Pure fun...It is with great delight that I can finally admit that there is indeed a Tommy Maitland, and that I portray him.”

This new version of The Gong Show was ordered back in October 2016 and aired in mid-2017.
