A series about people singing karaoke in a car is headed to Spike TV, the network where benign late-night talk show bits go to grow into malignant cable tumors.
Having already turned Jimmy Fallon's fuckin' around into Lip Sync Battle, Spike has now given a 10-episode commitment to Caraoke Showdown, a game show that borrows from both James Corden's pap playbook and Cash Cab.
Craig Robinson will serve as host and chauffeur, driving around and picking up supposedly "unsuspecting" contestants who will compete in karaoke-based singing events. If you thought it was fun to watch Michelle Obama let loose in an SUV, wait until you see a couple random drunk dudes belt out "Sweet Caroline" while trying to get to another bar downtown. That would be equally entertaining, presumably!
In addition to Caraoke Showdown, Spike TV has further announced plans to just continue to show old Cops episodes until Seth Meyers comes up with something where celebrities sing in the shower.
