Comic Tommy Maitland hosts as performers -- including contortionists, singers, magicians, dancers, comics, painters, and even people who work with scary bugs -- try to impress a rotating panel of three celebrity judges. If any of the judges deem an act to be less than worthy of a score, they can pick up a mallet and hit the giant gong that is hanging behind them and end the performance. If the judges are happy with the act, they will let it play out until the end and present their scores. At the end of each show, the act with the highest scores receives a trophy and a check for $2,000.17.

When "Saturday Night Live" creator Lorne Michaels first matched Maya Rudolph and Martin Short together during the late-night sketch show's 40th anniversary episode, the seed was planted for weekly variety program "Maya & Marty" -- which he executive produces.

Alex Rudzinski serves as director.
Improv veterans Ryan Stiles, Wayne Brady and Colin Mochrie return for a new take on the comedy series with host, Aisha Tyler. Each episode, a special guest star joins the comics as they tackle a series of spontaneous improvised sketches, with only a few random ideas from the studio audience and their host. With little information and a lot of imagination, the comics depict a variety of characters and scenes, and even perform songs. At the end of each round, Aisha awards points to each of the four performers and announces a winner at the end of every episode.
Grammy and Emmy winner Harry Connick Jr. enters the daytime genre with this lighthearted show that puts the focus on family-friendly entertainment rather than the conflict-driven topics of other daytime fare. Connick's stated goal is to "bring the party back to daytime" through a format reminiscent of popular variety shows of yesteryear. Regular segments on "Harry" include man-on-the-street interviews, stunts, audience participation and -- of course -- musical performances, because you can't have a Harry Connick Jr.-hosted show without music. The hour-long series includes a hefty dose of comedy, with brothers Justin and Eric Stangel among the executive producers -- a position they previously held on "Late Show With David Letterman."
