Fall TV Death Pool 2015 - 2016

July 30, 2015


In the tradition of the Summer Movie Wager, the Oscar Confidence Pool, the Saturday Night Live Fantasy League, and so much more before it, it’s the SECOND ANNUAL Fall TV Death Pool, celebrating the worst network television has to offer for the 2015-2016 season!

Congratulations, of course, go to our inaugural winner fromlast season, Patrick! Was it his belief in Jane the Virgin that won it for him, or was it the trust in the Big Four’s bad choices that truly brought the room together? Either way, Patrick beat his nearest competitor by 10 episodes!

Now, normally, we at Trivia Club try to be as positive as possible when it comes to all things pop culture! We firmly believe that there is no high culture and low culture, simply culture! You should enjoy your opera with your Any Which Way But Loose! You should ALSO, however, be realistic about what the newest network television “pilots that could” can and can’t do! We live in a GOLDEN AGE of television after all, so it’s our responsibility to give harsh and unfair judgment to the shows we haven’t seen simply because they’re on the channels that started this whole business!

This is how the Fall TV Death Pool works:

Provided below are the new shows that will be airing on ABC, CBS, FOX, NBC, and the CW! Participants will choose FOUR NEW SHOWS, and ONE RETURNING SHOW, that are set to premiere at the start of the new TV season, from the five networks. You can choose from any of the networks, as long as each of the five networks is represented. The objective is that you want to choose shows that will air the least number of episodes on television, as you’ll get one point per episode aired (not ordered, remember).

We’ll also be adding a wrinkle in the second annual TV Death Pool, with mid-season replacements! Participants will also choose ONE MID-SEASON REPLACEMENTS from ANY of the five networks, with the amount of episodes that air SUBTRACTING from the total of the participants new and returning premiere shows. So as a silver-ling, you want to choose a mid-season show that succeeds after your other shows have failed, with the lowest episode total winning, by season finale season if not sooner!

If that’s clear, and you would like to participate, then send your chooses to Trivia Club on Facebook or Twitter with the DEADLINE on SEPTEMBER 20TH, 2015 (yep, get ‘em to us by the Emmys)!
