Every new primetime scripted comedy landing on TBS over the last two years, including newest entry The Guest Book, has achieved that key-to-success trifecta: viewers, critics and advertisers. The network wants to score just as impressive a streak in the arena of unscripted entertainment. That effort launches on October 24 with two half-hour series scheduled back-to-back. Snoop Dogg Presents The Joker's Wild, an update of the classic game show "where knowledge is king and lady luck is queen," kicks off the 10 p.m. slot, with Snoop Dogg (pictured at top) as host and executive producer. Immediately after Joker comes Drop the Mic, which expands on the popular rap improv feature of The Late Late Show with James Corden.
