International Sensation Hole in the Wall Joins Cartoon Network’s Explosive Wednesday Night Line-up on October 6
New Seasons of Dude, What Would Happen Ramps Up the Stunts
Destroy Build Destroy Features NFL Superstars and NASCAR Standouts
Wednesday nights are about to get even more outrageous with the premiere of Cartoon Network’s hilarious new game show, Hole in the Wall. Hosted by Teck Holmes (The Real World Hawaii), Hole in the Wall is a “twisted” half-hour game show featuring two teams of families in competition as they face down a series of moving walls with ever-changing cut-out shapes. The fun begins on Wednesday, October 6 with the debut of Hole in the Wall at 7:30 p.m. (E.T., P.T.), followed by all new episodes of Cartoon Networks returning hit series of Dude, What Would Happen at 8:00 p.m. and Destroy Build Destroy at 8:30 p.m.
In Hole in the Wall, contortion is key as competitors must position their bodies in any way possible to clear the walls and avoid being thrust into a pool of water – all before a live-audience. As they successfully face down each wall, the patterns become more and more challenging. Who will be the last family standing to take home the coveted Hole in the Wall trophy and get the opportunity to conquer the nearly impossible “Impossiwall?” Hole in the Wall, the global game show phenomenon and online sensation, is produced by FremantleMedia North America with Scott St. John as executive producer.
During their spring 2010 seasons, both Dude, What Would Happen and Destroy Build Destroy achieved double-digit delivery gains among key kid and boys demos. In fact, Destroy Build Destroy was the #1 program on all television – both broadcast and cable – among boys 2-11, boys 6-11 and boys 9-14 during its Wednesday 8:30 p.m. time period.
In the new season of Dude, What Would Happen, Jackson, Ali and CJ ask such ridiculously thought provoking questions as, “Dude, what would happen if we tried to surf to class? Or, if we tried to bowl in zero G’s? Or, Dude what would happen if we tried to do laundry in a car wash?” The sky’s the limit for these three! Dude, What Would Happen was created by Chuck Dalakis. The series is produced by Ping Pong Productions with Brad Kuhlman and Casey Brumels as executive producers.
Host Andrew W.K. is back to moderate the mayhem with all new episodes of Destroy Build Destroy. NFL superstars Shawne Merriman and Antonio Gates of the San Diego Chargers and NASCAR standouts Joey Logano and Carl Edwards join in on the fun as guest players in two of these brand new episodes. Destroy Build Destroy was created by Dan Taberski and produced by Idiot Box & Mess Media. Dan Taberski and Scott Messick are executive producers for the series.
