NBC has announced Amne$ia, a new Mark Burnett-created game show that will challenge contestants' memories for the chance to win cash and prizes, will premiere Friday, February 22 at 9PM ET/PT.
Following its premiere broadcast, which will air after 1 vs. 100's season finale, Amne$ia will move into its regular Fridays at 8PM ET/PT time slot beginning February 29.
Hosted by comedian Dennis Miller, each one-hour Amne$ia episode will ask contestants a variety of questions that come from their own life, forcing them to recall memories from their past that might have been forgotten long ago for the opportunity to win cash and prizes.
NBC orderedAmne$ia last August -- a month before the network orderedMy Dad is Better Than Your Dad, another new Burnett-produced game show that will test fathers and their children in a series of challenges for the chance to win prizes.
My Dad is Better Than Your Dad will premiere on Monday, February 18 at 8PM ET/PT.
NBC's The Baby Borrowers, a new reality series that will follow five young couples as they're thrust into adulthood, was originally scheduled to premiere in My Dad is Better Than Your Dad's time period on February 18. However NBC has bumped The Baby Borrowers' debut to a later date that has yet-to-be-announced.
Amne$ia is produced by Mark Burnett Productions. Burnett, Adam Cohen, Cara Tapper and Joanna Vernetti serve as executive producers.
