‘Punchline’ Returns To Fox Television Stations With Melissa Peterman As Host
Exclusive: Fox Television Stations will air a six-week run of Punchline, a comedy/current events game show hosted by Melissa Peterman.

The show, which Fox tested two years ago, will begin its summer run on July 15 across the 28 stations in the Fox portfolio, which reaches nine of the 10 top markets with duopolies in New York, La and Chicago.

Fox’s station unit describes the show as “a daily, half-hour, current events driven game show.” The format sees two teams, comprised of two comedians each, compete to come up with the best punchlines based on news headlines.

“We loved this summer test when we did it two years ago and now with a few tweaks and a new superstar, comic host Melissa Peterman, we think we have a fresh summertime hit for our stations,” Evp of Programming and Development Stephen Brown said.

Peterman is an actress and comedian best known for playing Barbra Jean on Reba.
