Following the launch of the American game show hit Are You Smarter than a 5th Grader? last week, Friday night is set to become game show night on Q Channel 11. Starting this Friday, May 22, Q Channel 11 brings to viewers another family-friendly competition series: My Dad is Better Than Your Dad!
From the producers of Are You Smarter Than a 5th Grader? (Mark Burnett Productions) and NBC's The Biggest Loser (Reveille), My Dad is Better Than Your Dad will have kids proving to one another who has the right to own the familiar schoolyard boast "My dad is better than your dad!"
Hosted by Dan Cortese (MTV Sports and What I Like About You), the high-energy series features dads and their respective 8 to 12-year-old sons or daughters at the forefront of the action. These dads lead the kids in exciting larger-than-life challenges which test their strength, smarts, and their ability to work as a team.
On each episode, four teams will compete against each other in themed rounds: My Dad is Faster, My Dad is Stronger, My Dad is Smarter, My Dad is Braver, plus the bonus round My Dad Knows Me Better.
The teams will also be battling out the fun and engaging challenges of Human Dart Board, The Spinning Discs, Snake Bobbing, Alphabet Soup, Happy Hour, Uphill Battle, Empty Nest, Target Practice, Quiz Round, Scorpion King, Paper Boy Shoot-Out, Arachnophobia, and Stinger before a final team reaches the bonus or "Money" round.
Ultimately, the triumphant father and son or daughter tandem will walk away with the chance to win up to $50,000 and the all-important bragging rights to say "My Dad is better than your Dad."
My Dad is Better Than Your Dad airs starting this Friday, 7:25 pm, only on Q Channel 11.
