July 23, 2013 – The ABC Family Game Show Spell-Mageddon Premieres
“…the funniest, sloppiest, and most painful word game you’ve ever seen!”
On July 23, 2013, the new ABC family game show Spell-Mageddon premiered. The game show took the idea of a traditional spelling bee and ramped it up, with contestants having to spell words while going through various obstacles. The show only lasted eight episodes before it was cancelled. It was hosted by Alfonso Ribeiro, and created by Thinkfactory Media. The last episode premiered on September 11, 2013.
