Viewers slam new game show The Wall
IT was pitched as the life-changing game show that makes dreams come true. But Seven's new game show, The Wall, has been slammed by viewers on its debut.
The premiere episode of the quiz show - where teams of two hope to win large amounts of cash for a greater good - copped a bagging on social media.
One Twitter user even went so far as to describe it as "the most cringeworthy show I've ever seen".
#TheWallAU this show is so lack luster My 8 year old voluntarily went to bed for the first time ever.— Ben (@PhenomenalAJBen) October 30, 2017
If you want to watch the 2nd episode, it will be screening on 7mate at 1am on Wednesday, just after Ink Master. #thewallau— Daveo (@inflammatorydev) October 30, 2017
Hosted by Axle Whitehead and based on a US format, the opening episode featured Chrissy and Dez, a couple aiming to win big money to pay for their son's surgery. But viewers found the concept of the show - where large amounts of cash can be won or lost in an instant, depending on which way a ball bounces - lacking in the entertainment department.
Host Whitehead didn't fare any better, with one Twitter user describing him as having "the charisma of a carrot".
Other viewers found the show so bad it was unbearable - with a large number calling for it to be axed.
