This February, brains will reign over beauty and brawn as FOX airs THE GREAT AMERICAN CELEBRITY SPELLING BEE, an all-new series of specials that will have Hollywood’s best and brightest dusting off their dictionaries and breaking out their flash cards to compete in the ultimate old-fashioned intellectual challenge. THE GREAT AMERICAN CELEBRITY SPELLING BEE will air on three Fridays, beginning Friday, Feb. 13 (8:00-9:00 PM ET/ET), continuing on Friday, Feb. 20 (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT) and concluding in an exciting two-hour championship finale on Friday, Feb. 27 (8:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) (TV-G).
Sixteen celebrities from television, film and music including Corbin Bernsen, Brett Butler, Alice Cooper, Vincent Pastore, Eric Roberts, Meshach Taylor and George Wendt will be initially divided into four teams to face off in the definitive test of memory and vocabulary. The three teams with the highest number of cumulative points will move on to Round 2. As the words become more difficult and the stakes get higher, a second team will be eliminated in Round 2. The remaining two teams will disband, and the final eight participants will compete against each other for a cash reward, which will be matched and donated to the charity of their choice.
And people say they're out of ideas on TV. Goddammit, I can watch Big Pussy spell ALL FUCKING DAY.
Edit: AND they have some kid to stuff them when they're wrong.
