COMEDY TO SPARE
Comedy Central will launch a retro game-variety show hybrid in August that's set at a Minnesota bowling alley. According to The Hollywood Reporter
, Let's Bowl
"mixes a simple bowling contest with circa 1970s game show kitsch." Meanwhile, USA Today
reports that the cable network also is developing a reality-show spoof that's tentatively titled Hotel Hell
, in which a dozen comics are locked in a hotel and asked to perform games, challenges and comedy routines.
