Ant and Dec Coming To US!
For me, this is very fun news: Ant and Dec are doing a game show pilot for ABC called "Wanna Bet?" It's based on a German gameshow and I haven't a clue as to how it's played but Ant and Dec are great fun. They've been a duo since their days on a kids show; now they're close to a national institution. Ant and dec hosted the first "Pop Idol," which is why Ryan Seacrest was paired with Brian Dunkleman when FOX was carefully trying to duplicate the show's formula in the first season of "American Idol." Ant and Dec are very casually funny and have great chemistry; it'll be fun to see how they do over here. UPDATE: MediaWeek says the show combines celebrity interviews and music performances with regular people betting they can pull off a crazy stunt. In other words, it's sort of a variety show.
