Tentatively titled World’s Funniest Fails, the hour-long show will take many of the internet’s most viral fail videos and place them in front a panel of comedians. Each week, these comedians will “analyze” the clips (whatever that entails) and determine which video deserves the title of “Fail of the Week.”
Owned by Jukin Media, the FailArmy channel is no stranger to being in high demand. Earlier this year, Jukin Media and Dick Clark Productions started shopping a TV format of the channel to international markets. After that, Virgin America and Virgin Australia decided to include the YouTube channel (which had just hit five million subscribers) in the airlines’ in-flight programming.
Fox hasn’t yet announced which comedians will be the panel of judges in World’s Funniest Fails, or if the group will consist of the same members each week. However, the unscripted comedy will be sure to bring on plenty of chuckles no matter who’s on board.
Tune in to Fox on Friday, January 16, 2015, from 8:00 to 9:00 PM EST to catch the series’ premiere and laugh at other people’s failures.
