Superhuman (FOX) – Premieres 12th June
A talent show where 5 seeming regular folk try to impress the studio audience and panel of judges the with their unique abilities, where the most impressive wins $50k.
Each of the contestants abilities demonstrate heightened mental capacities ranging from observational skills, maths, memory and the like. To show off their skills the are put through a live test where after completing it receive the verdicts from judges that include a neuroscientist who theorises on how their skills have come about.
After the 5 have completed their tests the judges pick the top three performers, then the crowd gets to vote on who of the remain three wins the prize.
For a talent show the uniqueness makes to more watchable than you’d expect, and yet it’s vaguely similar to the challenges last seen on an episode of You Bet.
