In addition to featuring conversation directed by its panelists’ contrasting viewpoints and social interaction with viewers, Crowd Goes Wild, when it bows Aug. 19 in the 5 p.m. hour, will welcome in-studio guests from the sports and entertainment worlds, and incorporate live satellite interviews with Fox Sports on-air personalities, and cast members serving as correspondents at major events.
“There are sports news shows, debate shows and shows that present a single point-of-view, but Crowd Goes Wild is aiming for a fresh approach,” said executive producer Michael Davies in a statement. "Crowd Goes Wild is going to live in the moment, presenting multiple points of view, with the conversation often influenced by the audience through social interaction. Regis, Jason, Michael, Trevor, Georgie and Katie will embrace the freedom and spontaneity this free-flowing, less staid, format offers and I have no doubt fans will too.”
