Relive all the drama of Massachusetts’ “High School Quiz Show” every weekend this summer. The original game show aired on March 22nd and chronicled twenty teams’ quest for knowledge and bragging rights over nine days of play. Weekly repeats will play Fridays from 5-5:30 p.m. and Sundays from 5-5:30 p.m. on WGBH 2 and Saturdays from 11-11:30 p.m. on WGBH 44. The episodes are also available On Demand through June or online.
The show was hosted by Dhaya Lakshminarayanan, an MIT alum and stand-up comedian, who guided the twenty teams through ten qualifying rounds all the way to the state championship. Massachusetts’ best and brightest academics gathered at WGBH to showcase their intellect as they went head to head with other schools. “High School Quiz Show” is “one of the few televised public competitions nationwide that focuses on knowledge and physical ability,” boasts their website. The game show stems from the previous success of similar show “As Schools Match Wits”, which was a co-production of Westfield State College and WGBY.
All the schools competing were from eastern Massachusetts and the four highest scoring schools advanced to the finals. They took on the top four teams from “As Schools Match Wits”. So even if you missed it the first time around, tune into WGBH this summer to catch all the action.
