The Misery Index
M-Net (DStv 101)
Game Show, Comedy
Inspired by the card game Sh*t Happens, The Misery Index is the only game show where contestants can make a fortune out of other people's misfortune.
Jameela Jamil stars as the show's host with The Tenderloins comedy troupe and stars of Impractical Jokers - Brian "Q" Quinn, James "Murr" Murray, Joe Gatto and Sal Vulcano - starring as recurring panelists.
The game features two teams, each consisting of one contestant and two Tenderloins.
Teams will compete in a game of stakes ranking hysterically miserable real-life experiences - from getting stuck overnight in an elevator to walking in on your grandparents having sex - on a scale of 1-100 based on the Misery Index, a ranking system created by a team of therapists.
