Picture this: "$100,000 Dollar Pyramid" with cats giving clues to humans, "Deal or No Deal" with kittens controlling the cases and "Match Game" with a tiny tabby holding the skinny mic.
Fun, right? Well, unfortunately none of those awesome scenario's will be coming to life on GSN's new cat-centric competition program, "The Meow Mix Game Show."
Chuck Woolery hosts the half-hour show - and demonstrates how far his career has tumbled since the '70s - that features cat owners getting quizzed on general feline knowledge as well as interactive challenges where they must work successfully with their cats.
Despite two terrible dog-themed shows, "Greatest American Dog," "Groomer Has It" and a single brilliant one "Showdog Mom's & Dads," this is the first time cats have really been placed front and center on competitive television - and I think it's for good reason.
They're simply not as cute, cuddly or fun as their canine counterparts. For me, a huge animal lover, cats fall very low on the animal kingdom hierarchy of adorableness, right below dogs, bunnies, pandas, otters and manatees.
