In My Dad Is Better Than Your Dad, dads and their respective son or daughter take part in challenges that test dad’s strength, intelligence, and how he works together with his son or daughter. In addition to bragging rights, the winning dad will get money that can be used for his child’s future. The series will be hosted by Dan Cortese.
In Amne$ia, contestants are asked to answer a variety of questions from their own life for money. The series will be hosted by talk show host Dennis Miller, and the series is produced by Mark Burnett Productions.
