‘Weakest Link’ moves to Monday, Jane Lynch talks potential celeb contenders

The hit international game show, “The Weakest Link,” is ready to dominate Monday nights as it moves into a new time slot.

"The Weakest Link” will now air Mondays at 10 p.m. following an all new season of NBC’s “The Voice.”

The game show is hosted by Jane Lynch, who said she is thrilled to draw even more people to the show as they finish the season in their new Monday night time slot.

In addition to this, Lynch talked with Pittsburgh about contestants, the dramatic alliances on the show and even dished on which celebrities she would like to have play the “Weakest Link.”

“The Weakest Link” is a British import and international game show phenomenon.

In each episode, eight contestants enter the studio as total strangers but must work together to bank the maximum amount of prize money available in each round. The contestants take turns to answer general knowledge questions to build chains of correct answers. Consecutive correct answers greatly increase the value of the chain, while incorrect answers break the chain and force the contestants to start over on the lowest rung with the smallest amount of money. At the end of each round, contestants vote to eliminate the fellow contestant they consider to be the “Weakest Link” in the chain. The contestant who receives the highest number of votes leaves the game as Jane declares the iconic phrase, “You are the Weakest Link. Goodbye.”

Watch all new episodes Mondays at 10 p.m. on Channel 11.
