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.
