New Gong SHow

Show Summary

New Gong Show was a 2001 revival of the Gong Show, but it was dropped after the pilot aired in May of 2001. The New Gong Show was hosted by Tom Arnold, Paige Brooks, Donna Spangler, and Tony Pimental as band leader for Tony and the Test Tubes. The original Gong Show was hosted by Chuck Barris and ran from 1976 to 1989. Another remake was done in 2008 with Dave Attell. The Gong Show format was that of an amateur talent show with three celebrity judges, who would strike a large gong to end a particularly bad performance. Although some true talent appeared, the series earned a reputation for outrageous performances, silly humor and ridiculous prizes.
