NBC’s Weakest Link debuts tonight.
As cool as it is to hear a middle-aged British woman saying, “You are the weakest link. Goodbye.,” the show’s pretty much a game show–despite the fact that NBC is shamelessly trying to promote it as some sort of bastard cousin of Survivor. Still, The Weakest Link premiere tonight at 8 p.m. ET is reality TV news because Richard Hatch was, back in January, being considered as host. Rich taped a pilot; so did the British host, Anne Robinson, who got the gig.
