Nickelodeon Debuts “Splatalot” Tonight (July 17th) at 7:30PM
The massive success of Nickelodeon’s Figure It Out may have them looking at a few more cheap, popular game shows in the near future. For now, at least, Nick plans on pairing the Jeff Sutphen hosted panel game with a Canadian import. Nickelodeon will debut Splatalot tonight, July 17th, at 7:30PM ET/PT. Splatalot is essentially Wipeout for kids. Each episode sees twelve child contestants trying to cross all the obstacles and beat everyone else through three rounds to be declared the “King/Queen of Splatalot”. Unlike Wipeout, Splatalot holds a narrative theme of a Medieval castle. Matt Chin and Jason Agnew host.
The first series of Splatalot ran in 2011 on YTV in Canada. A second series has been announced. Interested in seeing what to expect with Splatalot? Check out a clip below. Does this interest you?
I do get slightly amused when we get adults in their 20s complain about stuff like this or Figure It Out because my first thought is, “Hey, this isn’t made for guys in their 20s. It’s made for children.” However, I think I speak for many of us mid-to-late 20 year olds saying, after this, how about we take a look at a revival of Legends of the Hidden Temple?
