Jamie Kennedy to Host The CW’s “Oh Sit!”
The CW has announced that Jamie Kennedy will be the host of their new stunt-based game show Oh Sit!. Jamie will host the show from the skybox with co-host Jessi Cruikshank. Another host, Tanika Ray, will be hosting from the track. Oh Sit! is best described as its original title: Extreme Musical Chairs. Combine the classic game of musical chairs with Wipeout and you get this. A live band will be on each show as contestants try to run, duck, dodge, and jump through various challenges and stunts attempting to get to one of the chairs and progress. By the end only one contestant will remain and take the bank accumulated through the show.
Oh Sit! has gotten some interesting feedback here. I’m the only one who’s seen any footage of the show around here, so let me assure you that it’s not nearly as bad as some of you are making it to seem. Yes, it’s brainless and dumb, and the concept is insane. However, let’s be honest, it’s just Wipeout and instead of trying to make it to an exit platform you have to make it to a chair. It doesn’t look like musical chairs, it doesn’t play like musical chairs. It’s Wipeout but instead of a whistle you just have to go through obstacles when music stops. If you like Wipeout there’s a fighting shot you’ll like this. Don’t be so quick to judge. I’m not saying it’s the best thing in a while. It is, however, brainless summer fun. It accomplishes what it sets out to do.
