New Daily TV Game Show “Let’s Ask America” Is Searching for a Dog Mascot


Every Dog Has its Day and Your Dog’s Day may be Around the Corner with “Let’s Ask America,” Premiering September 17th in Seven Scripps Television Markets

To Submit Your Dog Log on to www.letsaskamerica.tv 

(July 2, 2012) Los Angeles, Calif. – “Let’s Ask America,” a daily, half-hour, television game show hosted by Kevin Pereira (“Attack of the Show”), launching September 17th in seven Scripps television markets, is searching for an official canine mascot. 

“‘Let’s Ask America’ Mascot Search” runs through Friday, July 27th.  Viewers can enter atwww.letsaskamerica.tv by providing a description of their dog (including gender, breed, date of birth and name) along with a photo and one thirty to sixty second video of the dog and a written paragraph explaining why the dog deserves to be the mascot of “Let’s Ask America.” The finalist dogs will be judged by a panel, comprising of “Let’s Ask America” producers, and one final winner will be selected and contacted on or before Monday, July 30th. 

The winning canine will be featured on the show as the “Let’s Ask America” mascot and will receive the full “Hollywood” treatment, including a trip to the “Let’s Ask America” set in Los Angeles, a professional photo shoot and/or video session, and much, much more. 

Unlike other game shows, “Let’s Ask America” contestants are not in the same studio; they instead are linked digitally from the comfort of their own homes to answer questions about pop culture and current events. In other words, “Let’s Ask America” gives contestants the chance to win cash from their couches. To be a contestant, viewers log on to the show’s website, www.letsaskamerica.tv, to apply online. Every day, four contestants will be chosen to play the game and win cash via web-chat from their home.  

The game is simple; “Let’s Ask America” polls America about fun and irreverent topics to find out what people are thinking (e.g. Which of these shows did a group of bikers say they’d choose to watch for an entire year? a) “Dr. Phil,” b) “Days of Our Lives,” c) “The View”). Then, all the contestants have to do is correctly predict the answer.  The prize money increases with each question. There are three rounds and at the end of each round, the contestant with the lowest cash total is eliminated from the game. In the final round, the last remaining contestant can wager all or part of their winnings on the big “question of the day.”

“Let’s Ask America” was developed by Jeff Apploff (“Don’t Forget The Lyrics,” “Take Me Out”), Todd Stevens (“Friends,” “Mike & Molly”) and the late Jim Paratore.  Apploff, Stevens and Jack Martin (“Deal Or No Deal,” “Take Me Out”) will executive produce.

“Let’s Ask America” is produced by Telepictures and paraMedia inc and distributed by Warner Bros. Domestic Television Distribution. The format will be distributed internationally by Warner Bros. International Television Production. The series will be made available outside of the Scripps markets through Warner Bros. Domestic Television Distribution for a fall 2013 national launch and prior thereto as appropriate time periods become available. 

If you think your pooch is star worthy of being the “Let’s Ask America” mascot, submit  your dog atwww.letsaskamerica.tv and tune in to “Let’s Ask America” on Monday, September 17th on WFTS Tampa at 7:30pm, WMAR Baltimore at 7:30pm, WEWS Cleveland at 7:30pm, WCPO Cincinnati at 7:30pm, KJRH Tulsa at 2:30pm, KSHB Kansas City at 6:30pm and KNXV Phoenix at 6:30pm.

    Hijacking the 7-8 p.m. time slot in Cleveland for 2 rookie start-up shows that really sound crappy is a very big mistake. Wheel and Jeopardy are huge successes and part of peoples’ routine. If the new shows are up against Wheel and Jeopardy, you will lose in the ratings in a very BIG way! The new stuff sounds like a different take on Entertainment Tonight ( just what we need: more info. on the Kardashians) , and a show that asks irrelevant random non-cranial questions of Hell’s Angels and the like. The fact that producer Jim Paratore died and the other show’s host will be 81/2 months pregnant on opening night sounds like a great build-up to massive failure. I think it is “The Curse of Merv Griffin” ! I was always taught, “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it!”
